@ lathow: Thanks! I recommend you Milkshape 3d, it rocks, I`m a beginner, too. It costs only 25US$ or 25Euro (Pay in US$, it`s cheaper ). This model is the second I ever made! Good link: http://www.gargamel....ml/tutorial.htm -> But only if you speak German Hehe.
Hmmm... you know, I didn`t put any Skin on it. It has been rendered by the modeling program itself (Milkshape). In fact the surface of the model is toally flat, I just modeled the blade, that`s probably the reason why it looks so unnatural?
What do u want to know? The mercenaries fought for and in different countries in europe (while Switzerland itself remained independent) and it happened that Swiss mercenaries had to fight against other Swiss mercenaries (remember having heard that somewhere :worried: ). They were said to be very good soldiers. As u can see the weapon was often used against cavalry.
PS: I tried to keep the polygon number quite low (Im a high-poly-fetishist )
