3dmax is the best, but the other two are free, so make your choice based on that....ive not really gotten the hang of milkshape, 3dmax is exactly the same as gmax in the interface/modelling department but theres no renderer

also, plz trim down your signature a bit, it's longer than your message :)

nah, simple vertex modelling is all i do...click and drag a vertex to where u want it to go

lots of ppl talk about displacement modelling and other complicated things, but i dont ever use them...may be faster, but i'm a perfectionist :)

just remember to make only one half of the model, and then MIRROR it! cuts modelling time in half (hehehe) if u wanna add aysmetric detail (ie. stormtroopers shoulder pad) do that after youve combined the two halfs
