He looks spot on, very nice shade you've used on the Red Beret.
Could I suggest a wash of black on the Sten gun? They were painted with a matt black paint type stuff called 'Suncorite', which chipped off quite readily on the edges.

mweaver is right those faces are very distinctive. I usually do them all one color and let the washes fill in the detail but you take then next level.

Very nice indeed, colours sitting very nicely together and I and agree with others on the face.
