Gmax will not work for player models, well you can model them but there wont be any way to compile them to .glm from a gmax file format, add on top of that the fact that gmax doesnt have any skin modifier to rig the mesh to the bones.

video tutorials for making characters:

Another tutorial (not as great for low poly, but the head modeling is excellent):

Gmax will work for modeling but you wont be able to get the model in the game.

Softimage XSI or 3D studio max are the only ones that will export a JK2 model.

character tutorial for 3d max (gmax should be similar)

video tutorials from Ben Mathis (see Low Poly Character Series):
