Current state:

Ohh, finally it has a stock. Good.

Number of polygons?

If you can, make a trigger (looks weird without one), and change it a bit to look it more "rebel made". It looks like it come directly from a factory (look for example the crossbow).

Who is to say the Tau Cannon even has a traditional trigger? It could be fired via the handle (twist) as it is an abstract weapon in the first place. It may be rebel made but it is advanced and I do not believe it to be one that is mass produced so having it look overly shoddy is not necessary; that is something that can be done well enough through the skin.

The HL1 model doesnt have it due technical limitations of their time, and the handle way of shoot, unless someone animate it differenty from i´m thinking, it would look weird. The "scrap made" is for reduce the apperance that the model was took from the Buggy model and modified a bit (or at least remplace the two pieces of metal for another thing).

You won't even see the grip so adding or animating a trigger isn't really necessary.

Also the Tau on the buggy and the player-held weapon ARE meant to be the same thing, my model is still completely remade from scratch though.

I don't think it would even need to be animated it's so minor, and I was simply providing a possible (unnecessary) explanation.

Whoops.

Don't mind me, I'm a little loony today because of some things IRL... Anyway, back on topic, I think it looks great but I always found it weird how the front section of the weapon is being supported by a rather thin midsection instead of the handle (since it seems heavier than the rear to me).

Not sure what to say-how does it differ from the old model? Perhaps add some small details, such as crude sights.

You got a weapon that fires lightning/energy bolts you don't need sights :V point and pew

Given the amount of recoil the weapon has, ironsights probably aren't the best thing to use...

I think it uses a laser sight, as there's something on the leak model that looks like one.

And that reminds me i haven't added that yet.
