I think I am in love... That may be the prettiest Space Marine I have ever seen. Of course, I am a sucker for the blue and red color combo. My only petty critique would be that the R and D on his knees look a little bit rough, but knowing as little as I know about painting, I wouldn't know. Keep it up!

Thank you very much :D Free hand isn't my strong point as you can probably tell. Also the D is actually II, just the camera angle makes it look like a D.

Here is a pic where you can see the II properly,

The colors look good. Overall a good paint scheme.
I would suggest putting one or two more thin coats of blue and red. You can still see some of the black underneath.
I would practice my freehand for a while, because in my opinion, the knee pads completely bring down the overall quality of the model.
Lastly, I think you need a brighter red for the eyes the green on could use highlighting too.
