The paint job looks really good, though to be honest the way it's posed is a bit silly looking. It just looks like he is comically trying to balance on one foot. Personally I wouldn't have used those legs; however, it does take a while to get used to making a model look right. You should have turned the body slightly and cut the straight sword arm in order to put it in a forward pointing pose.
Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. -Edgar Allan Poe
