I can't get past the fact that it is from a western set and has bullets in the belt.
I thought those were belt buckles.
I think the thing that impresses me most about your characters is your careful choice of torsos and heads. The heads & torsos you've chosen do an excellent job of conveying that minifig's character!
I totally agree with that, that's why I think the fisherman is cool, the viking head just fits with the theme. It's hard to explain.
