    I hope you read the /fake sign on the title.

    Just a little model I made for a Lowpoly contest at Mapcore.

    My entry is supposed to be the new unlockable weapon for the TF2 Engineer, the Microbots. Instead of building a stationary Sentry Gun, the Engineer spawns three Microbots.
    One of them uses a heavy caliber Flak cannon, the other a miniature missle launcher, and the third has special sensors that detect enemy spies in cloack or disguises. They work as a team and are quite fast, if not sturdy as a sentry.

    Well it's the best I can do with 3 models, 350 polys and no normal map!

    /joking

    I agree with you, I started it out and when it came time to texture, well I had all my TF2 brushes and color palette on photoshop so I though "Why not?" and painted it for the blue team. Plus I was lazy and exporting it ingame gives me a very good an all set up rendering output :p

    But think of the possibilities, a single Lvl 3 Sentry gun has 15.500 tris. I could spawn 44 of these trio of bots for the same polycount, that's 132 little bots walking around the map.

    But I could easily make them more TF2 style with, say, 3x that polycount, but the contest demanded 350 tris for the model, and I wanted to make 3, so...
