well not to be a jerk but you put the paint on much to thick =/ and theres not really any highlighting or detailing.

I suggest using the Gw washes and dry brushing.

Looks good mate but I reckon you could really benefit from adding some shading or highlights to the model. You can do this by highlighting properly or if you aren't so experienced in these techniques try using the GW washes (these are perfect for what I feel you need to do to the model) and drybrushing. Then again there's no harm in trying out highlighting :)

Not meaning to slate your work, you've done a good job, merely trying to give you some tips to improve.

What angmar tried to say it, you might want to thin your paint a bit more before painting. If possible too, you might want to give your red a dark red wash (baal red from GW, or thinned paint) to give it a bit more depth.

I like the overall scheme of things, but I would say you should definitely try watering down your paints. I personally wouldn't try highlighting just yet, concentrate on watering your paints down :victory:

Yeah just add water like said.

It'll take a couple of layers of the watered down paint to get complete coverage, but it won't be as thick.

Yep, try washing it and maybe redo the design on his sword if you're not bothered about it. Other than that, I really like it, it looks much better than mine! The teeth looks really cool too, I find it hard to do that kinda detail. Good job, rep.

You will find that watering down your paints as already mentioned will smooth out your paints alot. I use the Mechrite Red Foundation for my Word Bearers. It can be watered down a fair bit and still cover reasonably well.
If you are after a dirtier look, i would suggest a Devlan mud wash and then a light drybrush of a brighter red. Otherwise a Baal red wash will really help to add depth to your paintjob.
I find the learning is best done on your rank and file models such as your marines.

You're on the right path. Could just use some refining.
Hope that helps a little.
