    Question:
    Would a separate portrait model be independent of the 400 tris?

    No, since both of them are connected to one submission, which should follow the contest's theme. :]

    Awesome lets begin.
    I have 2 ideas on mind, a transformer small robot or a immortal skeleton. Any way I think that the amount of special effects should be counted additional polies, etc.
    BTW is there any restriction in file size????

    Sounds good. It would be even more cool if there was a "High Poly" contest :) cuz people could create some amazing stuff there :\ though... modelers here are really good so I expect some good submissions! I wish all of you guys to have the best model :\ which is kinda impossible cuz only 1 model wins ;( but still :D do your best!

    I guess you can make a really high-poly blade of grass, if you like. Maybe a tree branch.

    That is actually silly. You should exclude portraits from the rule.

    Well, since the rules don't seem to include that it has to be a unit, I'm trying my hands on a missile. Specifically, a Chakram inspired by Kingdoms of Amalur (although a wooden chakram would there have like -10 damage XD)

    You can make units, attachments, doodads, buildings, etc..., as long as mesh has less than 400 triangles on the final export. Last time even the partices were counted, also I think that portraits should go within 400 triangles.

    Skrab, I rather like that little dude. Looks more like a 'Gremlin' than a 'Troll' to me, personally. :p

    ~~~

    Guys, this contest is the perfect opportunity to do something for the community... Something that few have done before... Something that is truly needed in this dark, lonesome world...

    Someone in this contest seriously has to make some alternate Goblins. I am sure I'm not alone when I say I'm tired of seeing a great Goblin model... And the goblin-pilot is just one of the Sappers, Tinker, or Alchemist cut-n-paste onto the cockpit.

    Rise up, my comrades! Rise up from the dust and be men!

    ~~~

    TL;DR - Someone make different Goblins plz. :p

    Getting Particles to look good is rather difficult work. I'll probably have to tweak a bit more until I'll be satisfied.

    I'm making attachment and missile versions. My entry for the contest will be the missile.

    Anyway, presenting some Screenshots of the current mesh (hopefully final) and the particles and ribbons.
