I like how this feels more as a whole and balanced out. Only by comparison do I now notice how odd the 'weight' balance was, with the head contrasting greatly. Especially felt like that in the texture variation image. I think because the neck was barely visible due to the angle and due to the colour of the face. Now with the neck protector it looks much more as a whole.
Nice details on the textures as well. The swedish eblem at the legs is neat, though the placement feels a bit odd, drawing a lot of attention. Maybe only have it on the outside of the legs?
