    Since everyone's doing it these days, i'll post my work for the valve contest in here, as well :D

    So far i started on a hat, melee and primary weapon replacement, that goes like this ;)

    Here's the model that's almost finished - a needlegun replacement

    For the Bonesaw replacement i imagined to keep the them with a "normal saw" but make it 3-bladed instead like on this mockup:

    [​IMG]

    Then i just threw random saw images together and traced to find out which blade and grip peple might prefer :)

    [​IMG]

    Then i got bored of waiting for replies and figured i should try my second melee replacement item, which is a reflex hammer. Ironically i forgot to check ALL animations and only viewed idle, draw and swinga,b,c which looked fine. but people quickly pointed out to me, that it couldn't be used as a replacement, as easy as i wanted it to be - i think i'll submit it anyways :D

    And since nothing worked out today, i decided to compile the mcdreamy hat model:

    SO, I JUST FELT LIKE WRITING BIG FONT TODAY - I'LL KEEP YOU GUYS UPDATED ON THIS PROJECT AS SOON AS I MAKE MORE PROGRESS

    2B for sure. Also I wish the needles were more uniform in their arrangement.

    omg the needlegun & the hat look so awesome.
    for the saw I prefer #4 cuz it looks like a real saw from the do-it-urself store.
    also, I prefer the hammer with bolts, looks way more natural.

    #2b as Okrag said or #3. I prefer the hammer without the spikes, and the replacement gun is lookin really good. I could totally see myself playing Medic and actually having fun with a poison dart gun.

    i like #4 of the bonesaw
    also, the needles at the end of the needlegun look randomly placed, i would like it better if they more uniform

    Take the needles out of the end of the needlegun. It looks strange. and would have to be animated when fired. - more trouble that it's worth.

    Edit: love that hat. :3

    I jizzed in my pants over the primary. the melee is questionable, but the needlegun is sexy.

    thanks to all of your for your responses, guys !

    obviously, nobody likes the blood on the hat :D
    and man, i felt that the non symmetrical needle arrangement would make it more interesting - now you're all conformal and uniform

    hammer with bolts - checked
    needlegun placement - checked
    saw development questionnaire - checked

    thanks for your feedback again, I'll keep you updated :D

    Also, the hat looks a little tall. Unless you're also planning on making a medic afro.

    You're not, are you?

    Because it's a little tall for a crew cut.


    An afro would be nice though.

    That needle gun is very sexy. Are you Planning to have it fire a burst à la a shotgun? If so, you could keep the needles on the end, and have it be disguised by a muzzleflash and cocking it like a shotgun. besides with poison, a high rate of fire would be OP.

    And then have alt-fire be stab people with the needles *shot*

    Got my hand on the saw finally :)

    1, 2, 3 ?
    Wood or Metal handle ? What you guys think ?
    Ignore the black parts on the handle part. just my nasty blockout modeling - nothing final for this quick mockup :)

    I like the idea of 3. I think the blades on the side are too much on 1 and 2, but the main blade of 1 seems most fitting, but maybe too much like the original bonesaw...
    yeah, no. 3

    edit: I like the wood handle, goes with the blade.

    yeah, make it an actual saw, not something science-fiction-like, as the ubersaw
