German Stick Grenade - Game Design Work

Today I finished another 3D model for my WW1 objects project. It's a stick grenade - or Stielhandgranate - which was used extensively by the German army throughout both World Wars, and has since become one of the most recognisable infantry weapons of these conflicts.

I was looking forward to doing this one. Because of how iconic it is, I felt that I simply couldn't not include it. I think that it's gone very well and I'm especially proud of the wood texture. As always, I used Maya to model it and Photoshop to create the textures (diffuse, normal and specular).

Here's some pictures:

In other news, I start back at Uni in a couple of weeks and I'm thinking about specialising in 3D modelling and prop design. This will be my 3rd year, so I should have plenty to post about :)
