Is this a wip or are you finished? The color scheme looks like it will work but the white really needs a few more coats to smooth it out. Also if you are finished I would go back and touch up the areas where paint has spilled over to other areas.
Unfortunately white really doesn't cover well so if you have even a slightly darker surface you really see the brush strokes if you don't use a few layers.
Like I said - I think you have a good color scheme just spend a little more time on it.
I have to agree with Slorak about the white, it can be a hard colour to do correctly because it shows up mistakes so well. You need multiple, loads, of layers to get it the nice smooth colour we see. White is rarely a quick process in my experience.
I also have a slight problem with the colour composition. You have white, blue, green and purple. For me, I find my eyes flitting from one colour to the next. I think it's too busy, at least I think it is. I would have done the tubing between the plates a neutral colour like a light grey.
I really like the model, certainly stands out. What I think needs doing is painting the 'knuckle duster' part of the lightning claw a grey or metallic colour and general neatening up. I also think that black joints would make the model look more complete, it looks like unpainted greenstuff in places.
Good stuff, keep on refining it!

I agree the joints would probably work better if they were black. As for the base - not a huge fan of it. It is really thick. What is is supposed to be? If you are using it as stone the scale is off and it should be painted just like anything else.
Isn't that a piece of granite? I think the base would look good from top down but from this angle almost all you can see is the cut porition.
Try painting the white areas ghostly grey and then highlighting to white. Make sure you mix with lost of water. I hate doing white straight off. Its always easier to do a light grey and then go to white.
Change the green to black like said and maybe do a little highlight on the claws.
I always wanted to do granite base... Can you do a top down pic?
