Blender to Unreal Engine 5 | 3D Props | Medieval Gallows
Would you like to learn how to model and animate a set of three medieval 3D AAA game assets?
Now, what if I told you I have a course to start with part 1, the medieval gallows, on Udemy?
Get started with part 1 of a medieval game assets 3D modelling series coming in November!
These three courses have been streamlined to make them compact and full of knowledge.
‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ will see you creating a set of medieval gallows with aged wooden planks and rope. The medieval gallows game asset also incorporates animated elements; the collapsable platform to run the executions.
This course will give you access to just over 6 hours of 3D art.
Learn how to build a medieval came asset that would fit perfectly in the main square of any medieval game city or medieval castle keep in the game engine of your choice.
This course will see you learn all the techniques pros use and how they use them. Learning how to add wear and tear details to your 3D game asset will be a central part of this course's learning objectives!
Through reading this course description you will find out:
- What you want to learn about 3D modelling;
- What you are going to get through ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’, and;
- How the course will take your 3D modelling, and animation skills to the next level.
This course will teach you how to bring to life a game-ready AAA video game prop, ready for you to render as part of your portfolio.
Our 3D modelling focus will be on building a simple wooden structure for our gallows, followed by modelling rope and adding realism to it. We will also be making sure that the floor platform planks are cut the right way so that they can collapse in a believable way when the execution lever is pushed down.
Texturing and Materials
All in all, ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ will provide you with intensive learning all in one place, giving you access to over 6 textures, and 48 texture maps at 4 k resolution. This course will also teach you the basics of making your own materials and shaders using these textures.
‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ will teach you all about gamma, hue, and saturation.
As part of this ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ course, you will learn how to use keyframes to key in different animations to the parts we want to animate. We will be animating the wooden platform so that it can collapse upon pulling down the execution lever which will also be animated.
Lighting & Rendering
By joining ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’, you will learn about specific types of in-built Blender lighting functionalities that will enhance the scary and dark feeling of your medieval gallows.
We will also be creating a portfolio render for any multimedia site you wish to upload your completed model to.
‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ is a complete guide into using Cycles for lighting, rendering, shadow.
Game Engine Incorporation Unreal Engine 5
We will be taking a deep dive into Epic’s all-new Unreal Engine 5. Do not worry if you have not managed to download it and are still working with UE4 because everything you will learn in this section can be used in both.
Through ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ you will be learning everything right from importing animations from Blender to having them work correctly in UE5. Through this course, you will learn the basics of bringing your games asset to life, rendered in real-time.
We will look at how to import and use textures created specifically for Unreal Engine and use them to create the materials for our medieval gallows.
One of the main things about this course is that we will also be creating our own portfolio gradient skybox!
Course Resources & Freebies
The ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ course resource pack includes 6 textures, and 48 texture maps at 4 k resolution, 3 references, 1 HDRI map, 1 HDRI portfolio gradient map, and 1 human reference.
The best course navigation tool for ‘Blender to Unreal Engine 3D Props Medieval Gallows’ will be included. The course handbook will give the control back to you and you will be able to fully streamline your learning process to your needs and wants seamlessly.
Join this course and come be part of a 3D modelling journey of over 6 hours of learning that will see you go away with a game-ready AAA medieval game asset full of life and animation.

In 2019, Neil Bettison founded 3D Tudor out of his passion for 3D modelling, which he wanted to share with others. He is a professional prop and environment artist.
Neil is a successful instructor with over 200,000 students cross-platform. His courses are among the highest-rated for 3D modelling on Udemy, with reviewer ratings at 4.7 or above. This includes a Udemy bestseller course.
Neil's courses are aimed at 3D modellers of all levels, with a great number of new tips and tricks for each learner. Each course is different, with most common themes including medieval England Tudor game assets and buildings, or sci-fi scenes and weapons. Neil's instructor style makes him stand out because of his to-the-point instructions and clear guidance. He is the only instructor on Udemy who uses live on-screen tooltips throughout his lessons, helping learners to follow along, without the need to go back and revisit previous shortcuts. This enables absolute beginners and mid-range learners to learn alongside one another, with nothing holding them back, and at different paces, chosen by each student.
Neil Bettison is a professional 3D artist with 9 years of modelling experience, including assets, characters, and environments. Neil initially got started with 3D modelling because of his passion for gaming. Some of his first models included creating assets for City Skylines workshop.
After attending the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) for a BA(Hons) Computer Games Arts degree, Neil began freelancing.
As a freelancer, Neil expanded his portfolio through work on historical assets and environment, working to sell these models alongside custom work requests. He is successful on social media and he quickly became a success on YouTube since launching his 3D Tudor channel in 2019. Neil's YouTube channel has become a go-to for all Blender students and hobbyists alike. Following his success on YouTube, Neil went on to create Blender courses on Udemy, aiming to synchronise them with his free YouTube content so that students can get the most out of learning.
Neil's 3D models are made using a combination of Blender, Maya, and ZBrush - depending on their specifications. Neil uses Blender for particle effects and complex asset animation. Neil can use two popular game engines, Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) and Unity, with many years of experience in using both. He is proficient in Photoshop and uses this tool for his textures and the original concept art he produces as part of his 3D model research workflow. Neil uses Substance Painter but also makes his own materials and textures using Substance Designer. Neil prefers using Topogun for retopology, specialising in optimising retopology for AAA assets.
Neil strives to continuously expand his library of courses over time, aiming to introduce learners to more software and tips and tricks over time. Together, the journey is just beginning!
