Not to bad at all man!
Though, food for thought. You need to work on getting the proportions right as a star, Grey-Knights are afterall Space Marines and so have very specific proportions that need following, following these will drastically improve your drawings.
Here, http://wordbearer.deviantart.com/art/Spa ce-Marine-Proportions-21939068 that should cover things perfectly. (Keep in mind though, what you've done is a Terminator and so the proportions will be different, however, the height of the space marine and arm length etc should still be roughly the same).
Also, your picture has a great amount of attention to detail however you need to work on getting bits looking less flat, for instance on your terminator's head, is the little vent bit that should rise up, however on yours it looks kinda flat, this just comes with practice, so keep practicing that.
Another great idea to help your drawing is COPY COPY COPY! My tutor at College used to work at Games-Workshop in the early days doing illustrations (like really early days) and he told me that copying (not tracing) pictures is an invalueble way to learn how to draw far more precisely.
Also, in the beginning make sure you only copy from Official Games-Workshop artwork, as (for instance the link posted above me) some pictures may look stunning and great, however the proportions are still quite off. So instead of copying and learning the wrong proportions if you copy from Games-Workshop stuff, you KNOW it's right.

Well, I hope all that helped! And keep drawing!
Also....Space Hulk will be released soon, it appears my earlier comments were a bit mislead.
KEEP IT REAL EVERYONE!! =]
