Oh ,forgot to mention ,all of the meshes are Beveled and therefore I plan on adding them divisions in Zbrush and adding detail to use in a normal map and in some cases a displacment map ,my poly-count budget is an average of 500,000 poly's for the entire scene ,and a maximum of 600,000 if I exceed the original expectations ,most objects will have a color map ,a diffuse map and a normal map of 512x512 for small objects (like in the post above) ,1024x1024 for medium sized objects like buildings 2048x2048 for terrain and 2048X2048 optimised normal,diffuse,color,transperacy and ambient map for characters and a full 4096x4096 for close-ups .

Coming up ... SWORDS !

Just a tips from someone who've done this a thousand times: start in broad strokes first. Do the entire (parts) of the scene first and narrow down on details later :)

Good luck!

just a note, for future reference it helps to change the background colour from black and give the models either slightly better lighting or upping the self illumination slightly... just makes them easier to see.. I look forward to seeing how this turns out!

Medevil Sword - 848 polygons

sorry for the crappy lighting Joe Robins but the image is already rendered and i'm preety lazy :shrug: I promise that the next images will be with a differrent background colour ,and regarding your post CGmonkey I rather work on "brushes" first (stuff you can add like windows ,doors etc ...) and make the buildings a simple beveled square with them !

8500 Polygons ,made out of a basic shape and around 50 brushes (detail objects) .

You've got too many polygons in just about everything, or alternatively, too many polygons in all the wrong places. It's not a bad start at all, I like the general shape of the building but you should focus on one thing at a time and make sure you've got the right shape and a good polygon count.

For the grid: use 6 single cubes than a complete modelled grid.

1 cube = 6 sides = 36 quads = 72 tris for the grid instead of 126 ;)
