The Battle Grounds 2(BG2) is a Half-Life 2 multiplayer modification based on the revolutionary war. It is the sequel to the popular HL1 mod with even more features and possibilities. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and local militia forces. Interactivity is a very important factor in this mod and team play is as important as ever before. Take aim and fire muskets, prepare bayonets and take control of the battlefield to succeed in your campaign for final victory. Combat will vary from long-range rifle marksmanship to brutal close quarters hand-to-hand melee fighting. You will need a mix of first person combat skills and quick-thinking strategy to survive. So prepare yourself to do battle for your side and to meet the enemy head-on. Only one side can be victorious.

Brilliant job, though I think the militia guys would have preferred using green wouldn't they?

Although I liked the green coated militiaman, these new faces look much better than the old ones.

Won't both the old and new skin be used at the same time, making every militiaman look more unique?

Klif-- yes, the plan right now is to make this skin a random alternate to the green. This will reflect the different uniforms militias used. You should see a variety of militia in the next version, well at least 2 different skins. It will randomly be picked when you spawn as militia.

I agree with Color-Copycat, maybe try green and red as well and see what looks better?
