Six approvals this week, some new, some old. Of the six, Krovv's Polymer LR300 really stands out strong.
This is a grim, heavy warrior's breastplate made from strips of rigid leather and metal, all sewn together with a crude, but efficient hand. For those of you who like their armor battered and Rusty, you've found your Grail.
The vest is part of the Last Viking Set by Nevil112 and MDemon. At the time of this writing, it's the only item in the set to win approval, but more may come. If you want to see the whole set in all its dirty, rusty glory, be sure and drop by the artists' workshop!
While we're not big fans of super bright glowy things around here, nothing Mishka produces is junk. Er, well, not junk junk per se, but not trash. No, that's not right...How about: All of Mishka's junk is good junk. We like it, even if sometimes it glows.
So getting past the glowing, white hot barrel, (which would surely cause a misfire or ammo cook-off), we direct your attention to the pistol grip, with its flowing stylized flames licking up the wood, the filed-down grooves, and smoothed and scratched surface. Engraved flames also run up the barrel, but they're harder to see against the glow. It marks you out in the dark, but it looks good!
Here's another Aztec / Mayan loot crate by xINFERNO to grace your own private Temple of Doom and ward off raiders for fear of cursed treasure.
Yeah, not likely, we know. As a matter of fact, it'll be the first box they open, with its shiny gold surface and mocking gods. What else would someone put in that box but the very best?
But while you can't keep them away from it, the shiny gold box does make for the perfect trap base lure. Place it on a platform at the top of a set of stairs, with spotlights. If you build it, they will come :)
Here's your chance to don the mask of righteousness and put evildoers to the sword, or whatever your preferred weapon might be. Of course in Rust you're going to have your work cut out for you, since pretty much everyone in is up to no good.
It's a metal face mask by NecroVacuum (Cool name!) that's languished in the suggested pile since last November, but garnered more than 27,000 views and 747 favorites.
It deserves it--the bronze cross on the front is screwed into place, and all the metal is tarnished and scratched. The top of the helmet is that same worn metal cushioned with a rough, medieval style leather, and the mask as a whole looks like castle forged steel from the time of the Crusades...or the Apocalypse.
Krovv's Polymer LR300 joins the rest of his popular approved polymer weapons series, with tough, shock resistant casing amid machined metal parts. This is definitely a pre-apocalypse weapon, the only hint of age being the exquisitely rusted metal parts, particularly around the barrel and trigger. The polymer material itself looks like the day it was made, which is as it should be--the stuff will probably last until the heat death of the universe.
