Engine head removal

I am trying to take apart my n51 bmw 128i engine for fun. I have taken every bolt off possible including the head bolts. Spark plugs are also out. The chain is still connected to crank shaft. The valve springs are still on the head. Basically everything is off the engine and only the internals remain. What do i need to do to get the head lose?

Once all the fasteners are removed, the head will still be hard to remove because of the gasket. Last time I pulled a head off a car (old American V-8), I had to place a prybar in an intake port and lift.
