Thanks for the comments!
Just to add to Michael's post, I did this concept back in 2009, and it was modelled, animated, and implemented into the game. But as the game is always evolving it did go through some minor changes and the concept was revisited, and was remodelled and animated again.
You can see the most recent version of the Foot Soldier in the screenshot that follows this concept (in the Media section), they are just behind the peg leg guy.
