An incredible 1800 skins were submitted to the workshop last week, and once again, we promise to bring you the best of the best.
A weapon straight out of a Mad Max Movie, this long sword comes equipped with metal chainsaw teeth and a rough wood handle wrapped in duct tape. The skin artist, Fred the Dog, has a strong workshop with six approvals in the bag, all of them quite Rusty.
We are presented this week with three new sets of metal chest plates by Vitalik, in black, steel, and bronze flavors. We like the bronze version best. There's strong attention to detail to all parts of the armor, front and back. It's got leather straps, metal studs, and sewing stitches. Be sure and follow this promising artist.
Chop your enemies into little pieces with this terrifying hatchet. Then eat them. All in a day's work on this charming little island! There's no explanation as to how the player could make or find a weapon like this but...it does look pretty cool.
This metal face mask by Мishka₪ [Dark Work] (Um...we'll call him Mishka) is another contender for the Post-Apocalypse Savage of the Year award. Seriously, we wouldn't keep covering all these metal face masks if they weren't so good. Good colors and materials, with rust seeping into the dirty leather grafted onto the mask. Mishka has one approval already, and is clearly angling for more. Be sure and check out his workshop!
A lime-green snow jacket, very Soviet in style. It's got a forlorn, Rusty feel to it, with a tiny red star pin just above the heart as a finishing touch.
An armored door painted army green with plenty of ugly welds and scratches. Looks and feels very, very solid.
Can't really say we're inspired by the name, but this here is a pretty good metal face mask. We like the black and steel color scheme, the different types of rivets and the overall Modern Barbarian motif.
Steve Dredd only started making skins for Rust back in December but has already got four approvals to his name. Could be this sheet metal door will be number five. His work is consistently Rusty, choosing materials like salvaged containers and barrels, plastic tarps, and scrap metal.
A salvaged ice pick by StabbyMcStabface (yes, that's his name), decorated with the kind of focused intensity semi-crazed modern savages with WAY too much time on their hands have been known to display. Stabby produces a lot of skins and has several approvals under his belt. Although his work is a bit more hit and miss than the other top Rust skin artists, his hits are really, really good.
A small wood box skinned to look like an old liquor crate. Aesthetics count, and this is just the sort of thing we'd like to see more of in Rust--stuff to add to your base and make it look more like, well, home. The front and back are detailed, but we'd prefer to see a little work on the top and sides as well. The artist, Abracadabro, has been making Rust skins for quite some time now and has a HUGE workshop. Be sure to drop by and check it out!
We include this shirt because it looks good, but because it may be useful to some players hoping to hold events and role-play. Hope Facepunch agrees!
