Workshop Green Army Men Mod

The Green Army Men mod brings a new perspective of war on the battlefield in the Red Orchestra/Rising Storm series by putting the player in the plastic shoes of green and blue toy soldiers. Unlike the serious gore and traumatic experiences of realistic and authentic combat experiences of war, this mods brings a fictional war in a kid friendly environment. Re-experience the childhood fantasies of many men alike, as the memories of playing with plastic soldiers becomes a reality.
