//A low-poly exercise with [[http://www.autodesk.com/3dsmax Autodesk 3ds Max]]//

My aim is to create an low-polygon model of **[[Pelargir]]** (c. 17th century Third Age) in scale of 1:1000. Basis of the map is the one published in ICE:s //Sea-Lords of Gondor//. I have developed it further to give the city a plausible social and architectural history. Days numbered are actual workdays used only for this project.

The project is currently on a break. I'll return to Pelargir when time permits. In the meantime, there is [[http://wiki.lindefirion.net/images/GobelMirlondMalli.jpg this]].
