This is my first model.

    the other way round xD texture made and taken for the preview pic.
    But due to some need for a screenshot of my other model, I did the same here.
    Could replace it, if I have time ^^

    I based it on some sword with similar texture and colors, just used the end of it, the red ball, everything else is made by myself, except the edited part at the bottom of the sword..
    Same here, if this isn't enough I can look for Ingame textures or do a new one, completly by myself..

    Still to much poly, it could be even unit with ~400 poly. For example those holes inside of sword you could make by alpha channel...

    "could" that's the keyword.. I'm new to modelling, and this was my first model..
    I'm pretty happy, that I'm finally done with it and managed it to make it a bit lower in size and poly, also it works.. finally, was a long way with lots of troubles.. so
    feel free to do it if you like ^^ I'm not able to..

    It's good for a first model. I'll give ya a 3.5/5. Reduce the poly count and you'll get an even higher score. :3 +rep

    I personally do not believe something is too high-poly for WC3 unless it is at least 5000 polies. But, due to the limitations this site has set (3000) and the fact that this is an attachment not a building/unit, this will not get approved until the poly amount is changed. Instead of making the holes in the sword part of the model, make the texture with alpha. You could make this sword look just as good with 30 polies. It's all about the texture.

    It's really nice, just get a better texture. (better = freehanded, it shouldn't be really difficult for that blade)

    Looks nice but the high polies don't mix well with it. 3/5
