For the past two years the focus of my large papercrafts has been Mass Effect. But having done models of my favourite squad mates I needed to turn to something else.
So I learned how to extract models and textures from Team Fortress 2, a game that has entertained me massively from mid 2008 to early 2012. I don't play it much anymore but wanted to do a tribute to my main class, the enigmatic, shambling bag of crazy that is the Pyro!

The Cucco ConundrumThe Cucco Conundrum
Link was getting thirsty, but he had made a point to never again drink from Kakariko’s well. He knew what was down there.
Chirping crickets stilled their night songs as Link shifted his position where he sat beside the windmill. Not for the first time, he fingered his Ocarina in consideration. He hated to dampen his lookout spot, but he really was parched. A little rain would have to do.
