His 'ead looks waaaaay to small to me.

I think that's a result of getting used to the 28mm wargaming miniature norm. If we saw those guys in real life they would look like massive headed aliens. This guy's head looks like normal human proportions to me, though the size of the helmet might be making it seem a little smaller too.

Beautiful work. Amazing in fact! BUT, one figure does not an army make…

Beautiful treatment of the old 120mm Hinchliffe figure

Agree with whitejamest – the bulky o-yoroi armour and voluminous under-robe worn at the time (Genpei War 1180-1185) overwhelm the body but the human proportions look correct.

And yes, the prevailing 28mm metal figure sculpting style with giant heads, exaggerated extremities and rifles that look like sci-fi laser cannon have a lot to answer for…
