Lord William came out pretty huge once I put the foam body mass on. Wasn't expecting him to be so Sumo-ish. But he's slimming down once I have at the contours with a utility knife. The styrofoam is a bit annoying - lots of little staticy bits flying around sticking to things. But it's dirt cheap, weighs nothing, and is easy to carve & add on to. Though I wish I had a fast-acting glue for it. Two-part five minute epoxy is the only thing i've found that works. Everything else eats the foam, or is vastly too slow drying.
His height is just right - a bit shorter than Cornelisz.
