    Exclamation Speed Modeling Challenge #174 - Sentry Gun.

    Speed Modeling Challenge #174 - Sentry Gun.
    *************************************************

    Rules:

    1. Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modeling times is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
    2. Post a wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger.
    3. LightWave must be used for modeling. 3rd party Plug-ins are allowed.
    4. You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
    5. Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.
    6. The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's .
    *************************************************

    This week's topic is: Death, Murder, Kill! - Just playing COD MW3 and they have these great auto sentry guns. So what's your take on the auto sentry gun, is it a tracked gattling gun, or a single shot spud gun..... the choice is yours.

    Have fun!


    Time limit: 60 minutes
    Deadline: Wed. 6th June 2012. 22:00 G.M.T.

    Had to stop at 60 min... got a little creative and couldn't really focus on something simple. Needs a lot more refinement, but hey, on my own I have more than the 60 min.

    Barely got this done in the time limit. Had to really rush the legs on it so they look kinda bad. Here be my entry, the Team Fortress 2 Sentry.

    Color


    Wireframe


    Gonna go back to it add some nuts, bolts and some better geometry for the leg stands as well as better textures.

    I could use a link/photo reference. When I search cod auto sentry gun, I don't find anything like the models already posted. (Which both look great. They are the two best cod auto sentry guns I have ever seen. ) Seriously, great modeling guys.

    Needs a targeting system and some ammo. But what can you do in only an hour.

    @Amurrell I like it, looking forward to seeing it textured. Is it an electric firing mechanism?

    @VictoryX, I never played much of TF2, but it seems pretty faithful from what I remember.

    @XswampyX, holy smokes, great model and lovely texture work, I'm going to feel shamed into spending a little more time on my entries. Love the barrel discolouration.

    Well I'm no expert with textures but... I'll probably be messing with this from time to time.

    PPsshhh you guys... stationary sentry guns are so 80's... You won't assassinate anyone or go after an intruder with that...

    Over the 60 min for a raw model and nonexistent textures

    Swampy... that's just... too good. Someone's got to throw in awesome stuff when Richard and Iain ain't around right?

    Cheers

    It's only 1 hour for the wires. The rest was a fair bit longer.



    I was going to post it sooner, but the forum was down, so I kept going with the textures. Glad you like it.

    Awesome so far!!

    I'm a wee bit intimidated by this one. So many pieces so little time.

    So here's a bit of last minute inspiration (mostly for me....).
    Cutting down a tree with a minigun. 3000 rounds per minute!
