The development of accurate and transferable models to describe multicomponent systems is attracting considerable interest in materials modelling. Tight-binding models derived from the density functional theory potentially provide an accurate and systematic approach to this problem. The present contribution outlines our attempts to develop such models for transition-metal-based complex alloys, and efforts to extend their applicability towards larger-scale molecular dynamics simulations within a linear-scaling framework.
