There are some serious proportion issues in this piece. His head is massive, his arms and feet tiny. The shoulder pieces feel odd and illogical and the sword seems way too long, but I'm not too sure about the latter because my knowledge of medieval weaponry isn't that great.
You also need to work on establishing a light source and making sure that all of the larger forms are affected by that same light source. His head for example is lit from above, while his chest piece is lit from the side and then the crotch plates are lit from above again. It's all a rather chaotic mess in terms of lighting. Make sure you stay zoomed out as you figure out where the light should go and block in the big shapes first, then go into detail.
