Can we use swords since they use to be everyday items?

Cool Looks promesing

Lots of competition .
I saw many of you in previous challenges, some I never saw in a challenge before. I wonder how many will stay with us until the final render...
Looking forward to compete against you guys .

Mike, is it okay if we do not just 'abadon' the object, but give it stuff like dents, scratches, etc that do not happen over time?

I think im goin to join this 1, Could do with workin on my textures

Is a ruined / abandoned helicopter ok? < thats my first idea so far- thinking rusty metal, smashed windows, bend rotory blades and and broken tail perhaps.

I know its mainly the object your looking at but could possible do a scene with it in a jungle style environment with grass or weeds/vines growing over it. < but thats a secondary idea >

Its been mentioned that it may be against the rules to use an old model allready built, as this is the first time ive taken part in one of these challenges can you let me know so that i can change tack if need be

Although I'm a total infant in Maya, I think I will join this challenge. It will probably be a very poor entry, but it will give me a good before and after picture as I learn.
