A little better. Too much contrast.

I think I'm getting good at this.

EDIT: I have a question. How do I make one of those GIF animations? I'd like to know how, so I can post the attack and defend animations once the're done.

You might want to add clearer outlines for the shield. It's hard to read it at the parts where it is on the body of the unit. Especially the part near the head seems strange. In general, try to avoid using pure black/white. Currently e.g. the spear has pure black outlines.

And there still are several semitransparent pixels...

Shield still looks fuzzy. Needs more contrast.
Here's what I came up with:

Not perfect by any means, but do you see what I did with the shield?

Screwed up the spear in the process.

You made the outline of the shield and sun logo on the shield darker?

Exactly. Given it's not perfect. This is the basic idea you need to add into the shield. The design needs to stand out more.
