Thanks guys... haha, alright, I'm doing the gun. Got some refs and I'm planning to do some full-on lasery dynamics. I'll probably finish the worm and the HEV suit first, since that's critical to the final piece.

Man, I'm having so much fun with this... don't really know if it's any good, but it's just a blast to do

The HEV suit is gonna be a bit of a trick, trying to figure out how to translate the various bits on the human version to this dinky little worm version... haha.

And I'm SO doing a headcrab... if I have time.

Hey Stwert,

Looking great, I love Worms too, and the games! lol
It definitely looks like a lot of fun to do, making me want to join in now, wish I had enough time to!
Are you going to make an army helmet for him?
With the amount of time left you could probably make an assortment of clothes and weapons to choose for your final entry, good luck mate!

Thanks guys!
Dango, good to hear from someone else who likes Worms... seems like not very many people played them, haha. This is supposed to be the worms version of Gordon Freeman (of Half-life fame), so I'm styling it that way.

I have to finish modelling the suit, and make the gravity gun, along with all the texturing and tweaking. I'm not sure yet whether I should make the facial hair using geo or texture. Gordon doesn't have too much hair, so maybe texture, but then again in worms, mustaches and things are generally extra geo.

I am a worms fan myself. This is coming along well.
I really want to start a thread myself...but got to find the time.
What's the polycount on this so far?

Thanks RockyMills, if you find the time, go for it! You can always pick something reasonably simple that will only take a few hours here and there to finish to your liking.

The poly count on this is probably somewheres in the range of 1200 quads. Still have lots to play with.

And a FPS view...

Still needs a lot of work, I want to make it look quite cartoony, like the weapons in Worms 4 Mayhem (that's the game I'm aiming for).
