Old (#5)
I think the idea will work if you make it look more primitive. The medals and hat look so modern that they don't match the fantasy/medieval feel of the DOTA universe. That could be fixed with some texture work, like adding patches and seams and obvious sewing patterns. Maybe make the medals look like they were hammered out by hand instead of machine pressed.
