well, I do like that fact that you have been willing to do something different. It's certainly not the typical colour scheme we are looking at here is it?
The thing about random bright colours of course is that in order for them to look really good they must be really well planned. I think that the idea itself is good but perhaps you should review what it is that you are setting out to achieve. By using different colours in patches next to each other you increase the level of detail on the model. This means you draw attention. When people look at models a little close it is usually better if they can detect some rhyme or reason for what they are seeing.
Where there is a clear motive then the eye of the beholder does some of the work for you by thinking it is seeing things that it is not.
Carry on the good work

Personally, I do not like it. The colours draws away the fact that there is any detail on there, the lord especially. I know Harlequins are suppose to be a mass of random colours, but I do think that there is such a thing of having too many and too varied. I would have chosen only a few and used variations to give it a "coherent- non coherent" look.
I think you have an interesting theme going here. It is always good to see something daring. Personally that Talos reminds me of the various robotic bosses in Sonic the hedgehog. I do have to say that I agree with King Ulrik Flamebeard. You do need some kind of idea going through them.
Painting Harlequins or in this case, painting with a Harlequin theme needs some planning. You don't need to use a large amount of colours but have the colours used in a Harlequin style pattern. This means the grid of squares, diamonds or triangles. These patterns can be done with a limited amount of colours.
Another way to get it to work is to do more work on the patterns themselves. What you can do is apply highlighting on the squares or other shapes you have in a pattern. When someone see's this effect it will look three-dimensional, even though it is not. This way you can get a confusing look to the models which is what the Harlequin dress code is all about.
