Whilst I have got so many questions (less so how to do something, but more so why), I wanted to express much thanks for your video series. Deffo was worth the access costs! I've been meaning to dive into Blender, as well as had been wanting to do 3D modeling/game making/animation for years... Blender is amazing with all it can do, esp now.
I have not any ideal what TF2 is, but still learned a lot here. I reckon I will restart the cone from scratch again and see if I can get it correctly done... as I believe I know some of the issues I had that screwed stuff up down the line.
Much thanks again!

@salacorn: Thank you very much for the encouragement, it's very cool of you to take the time and pass on the appreciation!
The TF2 pipeline part at the very end can be ignored if you're looking at getting any game objects into a different game engine, the most common would be Unity and Unreal Engine 4 (personally i'm probably most familiar with UE4 currently), both free to a point, as well as other open source projects like Godot and Blender's own engine or variations such as... UpBGE, Armory, and Blend4Web. Which i'm also looking at keeping an eye on and will be experimenting in as soon as i can. :)
Thanks again! :) Aidy.
