Rise of Power has a new weapon's modeler; Hellspawn. A warm welcome to him! Here's some of his work.
Please note that this mod is going to be an MMO for HL2, therefore until we know exactly what NetCode we're working with we're keeping it low-poly. ;)
Stop by our forums on our brand-new site for more information and up-to-date renders and samples.

The models look pretty nice, the rendering method could be alot better thought :/
the thompson is pretty rough
meh, they look dodgy, abit more time on them, could help.
Hellspawn, dont listen to these newbs who don't understand how much an MMO can lag without careful consideration regarding models. Those are some of the best low-poly weapons that I've seen in a long time. I love the chunky look on the first one, and the thompson and katana models look great as well.
Keep up the great work you guys, and don't let these guys get you down.
so how low is low poly?
His poly count on the Thompson is 1,200. :)
im not talking about the poly amount, actually its pretty big if you want to have hundreds of peoples on a server...
the thompson model is very weird, look at the reference pics again and try to remodel few things...
2.5 k polies, i could reduce it to about 2 - 1.8k, if i would delete all the chamferings... and with some effort i could even get it to 1.5 ...
