Welcom to any critique on my typeface design..

This is pretty interesting.
Some of the shapes need a bit of taming (like the "4") but I would actually emphasise the ambiguity overall; specifically I'd increase the "componental" aspect, for example how the "B" is a bracket plus a "3". I think you can get an interesting texture with a line of type set in a font like that.

The other thing is that the numerals are slanted in an otherwise upright alphabet.

Sophia,
I love it! An uncial font built on some of the shapes of Courier!
Like Hrant, I would take a look at the numbers and make them more vertical. The M and W feel a little squeezed to me in a font that is so open and airy--would you consider widening them a bit?
Otherwise, a great hybrid combining a very old historical script with a stereotypically modern typestyle--I look forward to seeing how it develops! Keep up the great work.
