Well if it is the "Army" as it were, young soldiers do tend to look all alike, other than skin tone variations and hair color. They all tend to be fit, and within a narrow range of heights.
But we get to the Uniforms, they are so last year. The cammo is 3 color, without the digitalization. The distribution of their gear is odd, and the MOLLE style equipment looks base contemporary items. While I thought the usual "Space Marine " look was laughable, it's like now the designs look too much as Newsweek,and Time photos, rather than the DOD studies for ARMY2010 specs. ( full head helmets, weird molded boots, and the possibility of a hand nmounted weapon).
Still, the restraint is admirable and makes them look more like "people" than caricatures.
The Stroggs, look appropriately creepy, but I think they need to work on the testure maps just a little more to remove the foam latex problem. Still the use of spec maps is otherwise really good.
