just play around with it. Just model it like normal polygons basically, then add detail when you're ready by refining the mesh. Not sure what Max's SubD toolset's like, but that's how i do it in Maya

What I think works

Tutorials are greate for showing how to set things up, use new tools and even explain relationships between objects and tools. But for modeling, it is crucial you play around as much as possible. Practice! Practice! Practice! Practice! Practice!. No tutorial will get you where you want to get to at this level.

Isn't the whole concept behind subdiv modeling to keep quads and not have any ngons or triangles? I have read that it is ideal this way due to the way usbdivs calculate the surface. Therefore, for things other than characters, is subdiv modeling still useful?
