The hero is a bit...generic. He can't really differentiate himself from the rest of the units. The pauldrons, skirt and guitar somewhat work, but it needs more. Now he just seems like a mere special unit. The heavy gunner somehow manages to look more like a hero because he looks different, he lacks the helmet, he dares to show his face.
Remember that the in most works of fiction (blatantly assuming), mooks are often faceless, or have generic faces. They are not important or interesting, you are not supposed to remember them as they only serve to decorate the surroundings. The hero has a face, and shows it. The hero is important.
That guitar is a mighty fine weapon by the way.

Best way to make your hero more heroic is to slap a cape on its back. Capes are always cool.
