As promised, the next challenge has arrived. And perfectly on time.
This time around it'll be something a little more specific, and something I feel that more people will have some inspiration for. Crew-operated weapons are, at least to me, some of the most badass weapons ever built, so building them yourself should be a lot more fun than, say, gardening tools (never again). Any time period will do, be it ancient, modern, or futuristic. Even a crew-operated pillow launcher would be acceptable.
The rules are copy pasted from the last thread, because they haven't changed:
Your model must be made in 2 hours or less
You can't reuse old models
You must post wireframes and renders here (limit is 3 images, but preferably 2), along with triangle counts, amount of time taken.
You can use any render settings, materials and textures you want, so long as it's all from scratch.
If I'm forgetting anything that you think should be added, let me know.
This challenge will end one week from now on July 17 at midnight-ish (which would technically be July 18th), Pacific Standard time. Click to find out what time that is for you.
I'm considering giving a nice $10 prize for first place depending on how successful this theme is.
