Just ten approvals this week, three of an Aztec / Pacific style, and one set of a more Orcish persuasion. Our favorite: The Aztec Trunk, by Mishka and Jesin.
A waterpipe shotgun with a shark mouth, painted cheerful light blue. It's a happy shark mouth, Friendly even, and makes the gun look like a child's toy, except for the fact that it can blow your head clean off at close range.
But children must learn somehow. The gun has a nice, wavy paint job, with an anchor emblem in the side to drive home the theme. Aging and technicals are strong, as with any skin by Badtrip.
Krovv's businesslike polymer SMG finally won approval after months of trial and improvements. Quite popular in the workshop, the gun features a tough, "modern" polymer body. Makeshift repairs like the leather wrapping around the grip and work on the barrel look efficient and competent.
The overall impression is quite realistic, a swift and grim killing machine.
Reaching deep back in the suggestion pile, Facepunch drew out and approved Brajkula's Forgotten Temple door. It's a wooden door with a South Pacific style god face carved in wood and painted. It looks like it's got something to say, but we can't quite make out the words.
This is a perfect skin for role players and the suicidal who wish to draw attention to their early base. Skinned wooden doors look great, but offer almost no real protection in the game.
This Aztec style trunk by Mishka and Jesin matches last week's Aztec Door, and would look great in a stone base, and even better in one full of nasty traps. The box is old and modern at the same, bound in rebar but carved in honor of ancient, hungry gods.
Nice and bumpy, with strong aging and dirt. @facepunch: We could use a poison dart trap!
Continuing the Aztec theme we have the Aztec SAR by BFS. This gun is not related to the Aztec door and trunk, but it does work well together with them. It too features psychotic and angry gods driven mad by the slow pace of sacrifice. Your mission: Send more souls!
We like the Aztec carvings against the red and gold color scheme. Note the nasty-cute stylized crocodile under the gods. @Facepunch: This survival game needs some crocodiles!
Hmm. Hot flames licking up the barrel, dripping paint, rust and fade applied just so...must be a Madroce skin!
Sometimes a straight-up weapon of war style skin is the way to go. Raging flames running up the barrel is nothing new, but some gimmicks and tricks go too far and detract from the work, while this skin just focuses on looking good.
Rock and Roll. The scrapper set by JohnnyOldBoy is a testosterone fueled blast of violence and rage, all red and black and skulls and spikes. It's roadsign armor for the more aggressive players, and makes excellent armor for clans who like action. Run 'em down, shoot 'em dead.
We find the armor a bit busy, but have no complaint on level of detail or quality. The set (called "battleborn" in the workshop) includes this vest, roadsign pants, and a coffee can helmet.
These are the roadsign pants that go with the vest. The imagery is not subtle, and makes you want to kill.
To be honest, lots of things in this game make you want to kill, and players hardly need encouragement. But if you really want to get into the spirit, don your Scrapper armor and let slip the dogs of war. Friendlies beware!
