There were around 1,300 skins submitted to the workshop this week, and we got the vending machine mesh, which is going to be big fun. Although there were many, many excellent skins to choose from, we only pick ten, and here they are:
Here's a fine box skin by La Crampe. It's got a tough and sturdy look, painted a dark army green and even has a lock visible on the lid. The artist has taken care to stencil "Firearms" on the top and side so even your dimmest clan members can remember what's inside.
Nevil112 is a popular Rust artist with five approvals behind him and probably a lot more ahead of him. This pick axe is a good example of his skill. There's fine detail on all parts of the tool, including a hand grip, studs at the head of the axe, and gaps in the blade and handle. Overall the axe is a bit cleaner than most things should be in Rust, but maybe it was stored carefully :)
And now for the most creative skin of the week, Base Invaders. The vending machine screen shows a game of Base Invaders, and if you look carefully you'll the invaders spell "Rust". And the screen glows in the dark. Silhouettes of running men with pick axes decorate the sides, and AKs the front. If this skin's approved, Exenoxx is going to score big.
This humble riot helmet by Krovv does a pretty good job of looking like something pilots may have worn in the wars of the distant past. It's got a couple of big dents in the side that would probably have been fatal to anyone wearing it. Lots of scratches and nicks, very Rusty.
By far the most beautiful skin this week, the Leather Chest Armor by Vitalik (which is really a metal chest plate) will transform your scruffy band of savages into a gentlemen's club of sharp dressed men. And women. Make sure you wear something underneath.
This vending machine makes clear that you sell what people need. It's got a Rust symbol in the rolling glitch screen, and a helpful sign pointing to the "loot room" in the back.
This is the Rustiest of the three vending machines we picked out this week. The sheet metal cabinet is flaking off, the paint is peeling, and it probably makes a terrible racket while dispensing the ammo. Not sure we would trust this machine to make deliver the goods.
This one's really got it right. It reeks of desperation, the kind of thing you use to club another Newman to death for a can of beans and a couple of metal springs. There is barbed wire holding the stone blade to the handle, and the whole tool looks ready to come apart at any time. Rusty!
There were many, MANY metal facemasks submitted to the workshop this week, but we can't pick them all, and neither can Facepunch. Madroce wins our vote with the Imperial Facemask. But you don't need us to win you over, just LOOK at the thing. It's...tremendous!
An ugly snow vest (which is really a burlap shirt) that screams "shoot me!" in low light situations, this is just the sort of thing that would survive the end of the world. The artist, Brajkula, continues to labor in obscurity.without any approvals,but really has produced several noteworthy items Be sure and check out his shop.
