Default short weapons challenge

What to do
make a hand holdable weapon
it can be anything that's real like a sniper rifle, katana, grenade etc
or anything that doesn't exist as a weapon like a oddly shaped sword, gun with lots of different funky sci-fi augments, or a tonberry lantern! or whatever
go wild

tools
whatever you want to use you can use.
any 3D, 2.5D and 2D app

start-end time
1pm saturday nz time (GMT+1200)
to
1pm tuesday nz time (GMT+1200)
12am (midnight, the start of the day) tuesday UK Time (GMT + DLS)
10pm monday winconsin time (GMT-0500)
4am tuesday kenya time (GMT+0300)

ie, 72 hours after the start date (not the 48 as i originally put up here when i said 3 days!!!) correct me if i'm wrong

deciding for winner
polls will decide...

im going to put the poll up in this thread because i dont know where else to put it
hammer, im not sure if you're going to do this or not, but i'll put your name in the poll anyway

we'll let people vote on the poll after the stated end time and then we'll take count of what they are at

its amazing how many HQ reference images you can get if you want to model a gun!

so, I've decided on the Smith & Wesson Model 29.

were you just looking in google image search?

i thought of doing a sniper rifle of some variant, because those things are pretty cool, but i'm not going to

doing something a little different, interestingly enough (to my surprise) such weapons actually exist, just not in the complete way i'm doing it

here's a small preview of what's to come from me

an SM exclusive

you'll be asking 'wtf is that meant to be?!?!?!'

once it's in a reasonably presentable state i will show

Right, here's the start of mine, as always I'm trying something that I most likely won't have time to do, but I'll do my best!

I'm not going to say what it is yet, I'll leave that to your imaginations for now....

Haha, you're not meant to....yet.
And this part of it is meant to be a rubber type material, so hard edges wouldn't look quite right.

it kinda looks like a duel bladed light saber or something that will have something poking out from either side of the grip

i've managed to spend a few hours on this

here's another SM exclusive, until i get better pictures

it's not often bevel works for me...
in fact there is a lot of funky geo going on around some places, but i figure it wont matter so much.. im not skinning this

for such a small thing it's using a lot of triangle already... 54,494 not that it matters too much.. i hope.. i do hope to use this in future

i wonder what i'm making.... you'll see soon enough
