So I painted three of these cool guys to start - two assault types and a sniper. I tried to stick with "realistic" military colours - pretty drab but with sharp highlights - but they're not based on any specific uniform the US military now uses. As people have said, they would definitely fit in any current or "mid tech" near-future scenario.

I felt like my SEALs needed some kind of very-near-futuristic technological support, so I sculpted this guy to carry all their extra gear for blowing things up and shooting at people. BigDog has received a lot of attention for its impressive ability to walk around in an eerily lifelike fashion while carrying heavy loads. This version would be roughly donkey-sized IRL.
This was a fun sculpt. I'm not very good at sculpting anything but pouches, so I just let this take me wherever it ended up. The fabric protecting the legs saved me from having to do anything too mechanical-looking there, and careful painting hides the irregularities in the rest of the frame. Overall, I think it's a good dog.
