Unhappy picking tutorials help!

hey guys
Was looking for some help with some tutorials!
I have 150 points to buy tutorials, FINALLY. I was wondering if someone, or everyone that has done any of the tutorials could post me some feedback. I am sure i will be buying the appachi kit which is 100 points. But i dont know what else to get. I was thinking :
Oliphant
Spider
Motorbike
Ninja
flame thrower guy
dinasor
assault mech
TOO MANY CHOICES. Could someone please post what they thought of each of these tutorials. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

The apache series is comprehensive and should cover your technical modeling needs well so, depending on what you're into, you could try one of the more organic projects. Can't comment on the ones you've listed but just to add another one to your indecision, the dragon head is a fun one.

The organics will show you a different modeling method, as well....nurbs > poly > subD. The Apache uses poly/smooth proxy.

I purchased the Spitfire Tutorial a few weeks ago and its really good. It gave me enough knowledge to deviate from the tutorial in many areas.

Cheers

Both use the same techniques... it really comes down to which one you like better.... And if you have a preference on a human model or creature.
