What do folks say about Kipling's phenotype?

Hi Dalonord, I'd say Borreby.

With that occiput and chin I'd also say Borreby.

Are Borreby foreheads that sloping though?

I'm not sure but I don't think so.

I was almost wondering if he might be some Borreby or even Alpine blended with some Keltic....the Keltic giving the sloping forehead and the brachycephalic UP Borreby of Alpine lending nearly everything else...

Yes, I have seen several Borreby skulls, even of the mesocranial variety of Traena(Norway) and Granhammar(Denmark), they show the same pattern of neanderthalid regression, making them very archaic in appearance like some Australids), with very low and retreating forehead and outstanding browridges.
The rear of the skull is either very rounded, virtually globular, while in other samples the pre-lambdoid flattening is pronounced, while the occipital region is slightly flattened.
Contraryly to Middle Eastern Brachycephalics and some Dinarids the vault doesn't rises entirely up like a dome, but the basion area lies lower to vertex, the highest point of the head.

For a drawing of a Borreby skull, just scroll down to chapter IV.
