Looks fairly nice :) And sure make the more "advanced" armor appear on heavy armor, that usually looks great in-game :D

Personally, I think it's too little changed. I mean, the low armour one looks like it could be Heavy Armour. The only difference on them is the shoulders and the 'mohawk', and I would suggest that you 'remove' something else for the low armour one. The chest-piece perhaps?

It's not crucial, it's just that you don't spot any easy difference between them in-game. I won't say that you need to have a big difference all the time though.

 

And now, after writing this, I see that you possibly meant that either of these would become the Heavy Armour upgrade, while you have a low armour upgrade looking totally different? So you want us to suggest which one is the best? If that is the case, I would say keep the shoulders, but ditch the 'mohawk'. It would be better suited for riders.

He's said the texturing will be done later. This is about the mesh. And about that: Decrease the size of those huge gloves/bracers. They jut out way too much.

I may be going a little overboard, but here you go:

 

You may wish to (slightly) lengthen and thicken the arms and forearms, to remove the child-adolescent proportions and suit the size of the shoulder plating.

Also, the shoulder plates themselves might want to be moved into the arm a little, to stop them just sitting on the arm inefficiently. Your dude also requires, and seems lacking in, a neck.

To keep the Elven look right, you might want to also thicken the chest in general, but leave the main waist area a little less wide, to give them a sort of elegance.

 

Lastly, I still love the model, despite my niggling criticisms. It's really good, and I like the texture (though I'm not sure it's vanilla or not, I haven't actually played BFME for about a year).

Thanks for the Comments Guys , and Fell I'll take some of your suggestions into consideration :p, I'll base the armor of the Games Workshop - Knights of Rivendell since there are pretty cool ;) (but i might make the crest vary in helmets) 

But I'll give some in-game info

the normal armor will consist of mainly leather 
and you guys can get a clue of the heavy armor i guess
they'll be Elite Cavalry and limited to 4 battalions

They'll move a bit slower but will have excellently damaged but short lived Trample Compared to the Rohirrim who will have one of the fastest speeds but a medium damaged but long Trample

They'll just have lances the sword in the above model was a test :) and I may add a cape (I'm having enough trouble binding the model as it is)

Apollo, I suggest you read what Rider of Rohan wrote too, and not just look at the picture before you embarrass yourself.

Widen his shoulders a touch and shrink his head just a smidgen.

The BFME2 style is way too cartoony for my liking.
