This is my Chapter Master of the Emperor's Knights

I am by no means a good painter!

Basic model is Trajann Valoris. I have used a different head and added a blade to the top of the axe to make it a unique weapon

Also done a white armour as all gold is too much in my opinion.

What do people think?

I like the concept and the colour scheme. The model and paint scheme do seem a little too ambitious for your current painting skill level though. A few suggestions:

Don't use pure white when painting white surfaces: use a light grey, This allows you to add highlights in pure white.

A dip in Army Painter Quickshade should work quite well on the metallic areas and cloth. It might not look as good on the white areas (white is just difficult), although using their black tone rather than their strong tone (which is a brown) might help on the white.

Thanks! For my normal marines I use Pallid Wych Flesh as their main colour so it's off-white cream. but I wanted to try and make the Chapter Master a brililiant white. I'm still learning!

It's a good start, and everyone starts off a bit rough, heck i'm still there. One comment i have is that all of the paints look a little thick, the red and white especially.

realism is a lie

I dig the color scheme for sure. Thin your paints a little bit and I promise your results will be much better

Don't worry, skills come paint after paint. White is not an easy color to paint, personally I hate to do it.But doing well it is a very nice colour. I will wait your next mini.
You will see you will improve paint after paint. You can also have a look to some tutorial videos.

One thing. When I begun painting I just used the paint direct, without water. Now I paint with it and the models look a lot better.

Yeah i'm doing a tactical squad and am going to be using a lot less paint. I'm going to try dry brushing

Yes, better two times thin instead one too thick.

I will be waiting to see you new minis. Don't stress, just enjoy.

Cool concept, but your stuff will only get better as you produce more. You'll eventually start having "Eureka!" moments and you'll get progressively better. Nice start. I have also done a custom Chapter Master, so I approve of the idea.

Really nice kitbash

I would practice getting your paints nice and thin on something else and strip this and repaint it.
