Two things,

1) Face winding is important (vertex order clockwise vs counter clockwise) see previous post. Face culling will eliminate some faces based on face winding, this is known as back face culling or front face culling. This can be disabled.

2) Blended transparency does not play nicely with the zbuffer. You need to sort transparent faces or at least draw transparent stuff last and turn off depth writes when drawing transparent stuff.
