So; we've all seen the soldiers' stupid dorito-faced gas masks. Honestly, as a kid, they creeped me out. I was able to understand that the scientists are scientists - but for some reason, the soldiers never looked like soldiers. They looked like a big mess of polygons.
Makes sense - they were among the first models to be made for the game, but they never really got updated much. Hell, you can still see very similar models (if not the same) in the Half Life Alpha 0.52.
You know what's really jarring? Seeing security guards with fully modelled faces and helmets, and then seeing these cockroach shaped triangle faced gas mask dudes in the same game.
Unfortunately, the HD pack greatly alters their aesthetic, and takes a lot of liberties.
All in all, if you're looking for something true to the original, here ya go.
EDIT: Also - this model also changes up a few other bits of the model - makes the mp5 into an mp5sd, fixes up the backpack texture to be a bit higher resolution, gives characters longer necks that are actually connected to the neck bone, etc.
