Septimus - The Metalguards are still seeking new members:

This skin is based on the Mesto Skin by Zenodey and fits good into the MG-Troops.

The pros:
The dark color sheme mixed with the red colors makes him look a MG in a real bad mood.
A nice and good in game working portrait is always worth to be mentioned.

The cons:
I don`t understand why so many skins are without any teamcolors.
Only Deathmatch compatible skins are for the most UT addicted people in best case a "Nice to have".
There is no bio available. Truly it`s not the most important thing (the paintjob is surely much more important for a good score), but they`re the small details which are making skins "perfect"

Words by reviewer:
All in all this is a nice skin, which would have gotten a much better score with Teamcolors.
True Metalguardfans will surely download this and maybe make the teamcolors on their own.

Total Score: 5/10

A lot of promise that this could've been a good skin. It's by no means bad just needs to be less rushed and have more work put into it ;)

Hopefully the author will revise this and add the tcs too.

Total Score: 5/10

Unfortunately a skin without any teamcolors is nearly useless for me, due I never play DM. It just lacks the tactical stuff... I only play TDM for "warm up"

I agree with MxX and klasnic that it would`ve gotten a better rating with TC, but without tmen there remains a
Total score: of 4/10
