While generally I'm not a slave to the RAH designs, occasionally there is something so right, that to deviate from the look borders on sacrelige. While the factory offering was okay given what it was, I just couldn't stand it, and decied for a total rework using only the webgear and lower legs/boots from the orignal.
I have shown pics of two of these before (Night Force, and one that went to my business partner), but this one is mine and I felt like showing off. Enjoy!

Factory clean, as always. is that a Dusty torso? Looks good, either way.
The only crits I've got are preferential, but IMO the iris/pupils of your figures tend to be a little large for my liking. Gives them a bit of a cartoony look which doesn't match as well with your generally realistic styling. Maybe about 80% of the current size and I'd say they're spot on. Your caucasian skintones tend a little too pink for me too, which also adds to the cartoonish appearance. Some slight desaturation would really push it.
