How come I never saw this? ;)

Would like to remind you to post a little about the package(s) you used and how you did it. ;) That way we can actually say besides, hey, I like it or that sort of thing. :)

Ok, a little history..... the cylon was converted/reconverted into LW by a half a dozen people, all of whose names are crunched into the bottom of the credits, finally when I got my hands on it I retextured it to look roughly gray and metallic, then I upped the reflection... the original had skin that looked kind of like clay

The terminator was originally a 3ds model, I imported it into lightwave, completely retextured it, and moved a few pivot points around so I could tilt the head up and down.. I left the teeth and the gun textured exactly the same as they were on the original 3ds model, and the terminator skin is mostly done with a chrome colored reflection map

Finally I rendered the entire thing out twice using two seperate reflection maps, then blended them together in paintshop, and as my last step I cropped the image down to its current size using MS paint, because at that point I was feeling lazy and din't feel like openning up paintshop

An interesting concept to say the least... personally though, my money would be on the Terminator if I was a betting man ;)

Really? I'd be putting down on the Cylons.... not because they're better killers, but there's a heck of a lot more of 'em. Victory thru attrition....:D

I could see the T800 winning this actually. Looks great but my only crit is the arms and hands. Not sure why but they don't look right to me.

I know they're droids and stuff, but they look a little... stiff
just screams for a good Reflection map for all that chrome

The Terminator _does_ seem to be grimacing a bit - maybe the Cylon has just found out he has a dose of something not nice ;-D
