Can I use a model I've been working on recently, but wasn't specifically for this comp? Cuz my computer's gotta get fixed this week, and I won't be around for the following 1-and-a-half weeks. Plz?

If you feel it's the only way you can make it in time for the deadline, I have no objections. Do note though that you have an entire month to work on it!

P.S.: And that 29-th kills me  :D , why not 31-st ?  :D

Would a Death Star-type thing work for this, or does the war machine need to work on Earth?

Lookin' good so far Gyperboloid! The deadline may be the 29th, but who knows, it might need to be the 31st if we need an extension ;)

TheBlackHole, any war machine, whether it's real or fictional, should be alright.

Make it through Labor Day (USA) and I'll make a solid go at it!

EDIT: I'll suffer with settling for Aug 31, if I gotta. Just need to crack down all the more.

These last weaks were all pain! Since it seams that the only entry will be that from ENSONIQ5, maybe it's better to extend the deadline for one more month  ???  I think it's a good "modeling skills" challenge ( although I am strongly against the war idea  : P E A C E  :) ) it would be great if more people could join it and of course finish it  :-\
                                                                         
                                                                                 ???

I'm almost done my entry, gyberboloid.. but it doesnt matter if the deadline gets extended I guess. I don't really need it though.

Just need to render now. Are only Anim8or renders allowed? of course that would be most fun, but especially the clay renders take very long in Anim8or, especially in an animation..

Below is a quick development sketch of a fictional war machine: a sort of VTOL troop carrier/gunship kinda thing.  I have started modelling with the port side engine nacelle, rocket array and undercarriage.  I am planning to UV map a camouflage pattern texture and if possible to render in Anim8or, though I may have to retreat to a quicker renderer if I don't get a move on!

Ha! you're really making it easy on yourself eh, ensoniq.. what a concept.. Well its going to look great I'm very sure.. I hope you'll finish it in time! I'll assume for now that you won't animate it for the turntable.. Would be great to see though, a landing or take-off.. but maybe on a bigger timeframe it would be possible..

I am done modeling in Anim8or.. I think I'm exporting to max for a quicker renderer now. Good luck everyone!
