Hey, I'm not mean. It seams like the backpack is bulky, and a little more detail on the green would be good. Good concept though.

Generically, it is fine. The specific details, however, need work. Green stuff can be really hard to use at first, so don't worry about it too much. Keep practicing. My advice would be to use a modelling knife to create some detail on the armour patches, preferably checker patterns like this:
* _____
[XXXXXX]
[XXXXXX]
[XXXXXX]
[XXXXXX]
[XXXXXX]

I won't be mean but i'll be honest: the green is too blobby. They have little to no detail, a shame when you could have cheated, and used a pre-made backpack of some sort, and put little flat peices of plating on the knees by using the knife to flatten and trim it. Also, the cable seems a bit odd.

Oh, is it? Sorry, it looked round in the photo, and if it was a sling, it's not a very good sling for a Paratrooper.

This kind of sling is more suited to a paratrooper, but I have no idea how to sculpt it, expect maybe by using long rolls of green stuff, flattening it, shaving it into rectangular shapes, and building it up from that using the flat straps. No idea how to detail it or such.

I think, to build the backpack, used a small blob and square it loosely, then file off fingerprints. then, put a flat panelly bit on the top, with a little strap as said above (but thinner) to show it.

Make reference to modern equipment in the backpack/sling case, and remember: it's better to build it up slowly with green stuff, rather than try and do it all as one solid block.

'Course, I'm one to talk, I've never sculpted much, if anything...
