I started doing some models for M&B so I will post them here to hear your opinion.
Later on, I'll probably upload them somewhere so other people can use them, or I'll just make them a part of OSP(Open source)

Here is the first thing I made (sword)

Cool! I didn't realise you could model, good work...

Well, I'm just starting with modeling but it isn't hard, so I hope I'll make a lot of new things for M&B.
atm I'm only making weapons and shields, but soon I'll probably make some new armors, helmets and boots as well.

well, if you can send me your model(upload it somewhere so I can download it), I could probably make some UV mapping and then send it back to you whet it's done

Yes, I know it has too many vertices.. and such.. >.<

And this is my first model.

All in all, I am sorry if it is crappy. hehe.

hmm, 10532 faces :S
I tried my best but I just get lost in all of them and UV mapping takes forever(I waited 10 minutes to unfold it) and I ended up with something that was to hard for me fix up. Sorry, but seems that I can't help you, at least not atm.

btw, your model does look pretty good, but it seems to me like you've been using the smooth option or something like that and it had build up number of faces up to 10k that is really much, at least for M&B.

Indeed.

I am going to redo the sword and hilt parts and that will probably help.. ALOT.

So bear with me :D

The model looks cool  :)  ... You could also do some variations of it ...

I had some free time so I made a model of a simple low-poly sword

Spoiler: click to toggle


I'll have plenty of free time during the weekend so I'm pretty sure I'll make some new models.
And finally I installed photoshop so I'll probably make some textures and put them on my models too.
