An alternative, if you were looking for a heavier look, would be to move the prow lance to the top of the ship and connect it to the engine section, while splitting the bridge into a wider or twin-peaked structure, perhaps a touch like a star destroyer, or even standard issue imperium cruisers.

As for a lighter model, I agree with Vaaish that the prow lance needs shortening (or moving). The side lances could be pressed deeper inboard, so that about 50% protrudes from the edge of the standard hull (ie, the outside of the sloped part just back from the prow).

Hmm, I'm almost tempted to now do two versions: the lighter 'sniper' frigate, following Vaaish suggestion; and then a heavier 'siege' frigate following your suggestions. I can't help but think of the cannon on top of this ship...
