from what i can tell, he looks pretty sweet. I suggest amybe putting up a pic of the front of him, i find it helps to gat an overall feel of the dude. I especially like the flames, but i think that the armor is a bit too bland, also i would wash the skulls in brown ink or something, or just paint it up like i do start with sortched brown, then a graveyard earth and the a bleached bone on top. It makes the skulls look old / or rotten sepending on which one you do

Like Toast said it looks good ( i really love the conversion) but it lacks in depth. Try to give it some shades and highlights.
The red and brown parts could all be shaded with a thinned down Brown, then work your way up through the different colours. (for Red _ Scab/gore, blood red and final highlights some orange)
If you do like this on all the different colours you'll get a much deeper, more 3D-looking paintjob.
I would put in alot more highlighting. The models appears a little dry, you could water down your paints a bit more next time. On the whole though, it does look very good.
Hmm.. to be perfectly honest, I don't like it. To start, the wings look too large and overbalance him in my opinion; by that I mean the focus sits more on them than the mini itself. I would have done smaller ones. That and his stance is too static, if they were folded against his back they may have been alright but they they are stretched out and he's walking... it doesn't suit.
As to the painting, it's not bad; pass for tabletop quality. It looks rather unhightlighted or shaded, noticably the skulls and the blue armour; I'd go as far as to say it's been mainly drybrushed. This is ok to start but I suggest you leave the drybrushing behind. You get a much better mini without it. Layering is much better and looks smoother. I suggest you try layering, a dark blue [midnight perhaps] as at the moment the armour looks very light, pastil almost.
Shading and highlighting add alot to a mini, even if it's only an ink wash. As mentioned the skulls look bland, a wash would do well - brown or chesnut. The red could do with some highlighting and the sword is actually back to front - the lighter should be in the middle/bottom [where it's hotest] not the top.
I hope you take the constructive critisim from this, I am doing it to how that you improve.
