The trench coat is now displayed correctly. I added $ nocull "1" so it no longer looks "transparent" from the inside. Thanks to Shadow_RUN
The texture of the boots is now darker and looks like a real leather boot.
My attempt to recreate the "Trenchcoat Combine Guard" model from Raising the Bar book. The concept art itself was drawn by Dhabih Eng, concept artist from VALVE.
The Combine Guard is the predecessor to both Metrocops and Combine Soldiers. The Combine Guard is one of the earliest humanoid Combine units designed - at the time it appears it was the only Combine humanoid to exist, shortly before being split to create both the Metro Cop and the Combine Soldier. With an all-black uniform with vertical straps, a long trench coat and a white helmet, it was inspired in part by the German SS uniforms of World War II. Once it evolved into the Metro Cop along with one of the (bulkier) helmet designs, the other (flatter) helmet design was recycled into the Combine Soldier.
