Can one be more badass than that? Love the helmet/boots design, and use of tactical vest that gives realism. One question - why he has assault rifle magazines in his pouches while holding a SAW? I prefer flat knee pads and do not like Hell Diver/Medieval style gloves.
What i like at your pics is that you easily recognize equipment parts that already exists, linking SiFi with real-life. The soldiers looks less fantastic and more like a possible development in foreseeable future.
