Ravager Nocturne is a particularly strange skin as its theme isn’t evident at a glance.
While there is a flame pattern covering the entirety of Nocturne’s body there isn’t much to solidify a fire theme.
In spite of that, the look is quite interesting: a lean body with spiked blades, that looks practically engineered to destroy.
In the end, Ravager Nocturne feels like it needs something noteworthy to make it truly interesting.
Still, it’s a nice look for a ...
Leona dressed as a Valkyrie is a good concept that is well executed.
Even if her body armour is lighter than usual her model is elaborate and original: every aspect of her is different from Classic Leona.
Each piece of armour contributes to the whole feel and provides an alternative novel look at the armour-heavy Leona.
At this price point it’s unusual to find such a nice and thorough model for a champion.
If you like Leona you should consider getting Valkyrie ...
Tundra Hunter Warwick may be a simple re-texture but it’s a reasonably well done one.
Firstly, the white fur looks quite good as its pristine white colour contrasts with its own shading.
The blue eyes are intense so as to stand apart from the fur yet the hue is a good match to the white fur.
The armour is nicely painted in two tones with a fair, though static, bit of shiny touches.
However, the colours chosen for the armour mesh with the fur shading and don’t ...
Commando Lux is, technically, a good re-model that radically changes Lux’s colourful armour for a practical Demacian Commando suit.
The problem is that, while the changes and concept are good on paper, the final product is drab, dull and unexciting.
That’s not to say that nobody should buy it as it may appeal to those looking for a more serious look for Lux.
However, considering the great splash art and the plain model, it is an unconvincing skin that can’t be ...
Sanguine Garen adds a fitting and interesting layer of bloodlust-inspired decoration that make him look deadlier and more vicious that usual.
However, the armour and sword, while eye-catching seem too flamboyant and the colours too bright.
For a skin that wants to add some darkness it surely lacks the required subtlety.
Considering its low price it’s a good choice for Garen fans but its concept and execution seem be at odds with one ...
Viridian Kayle is just a re-texture but it’s more ambitious than the usual ones.
The grey and green colour scheme stands apart well from Classic Kayle yet it preserves her traditional style.
The dark wings stand out thanks to the mute metal hue as well as the green decorations and clothes.
All things considered, it isn’t a striking skin at all but for a re-texture it does enough and rather ...
Considering the concept and execution, Statue of Karthus is a skin that struggles to appeal.
On the one hand the look is distinct and stands apart from the classic style.
Besides, the idea of a stiff lich impersonating the Statue of Libery is funny; for a while.
On the other hand, an American symbol is due to lack worldwide interest.
Even if we take the reference as a personification of Libertas, the Goddess of Freedom, we find some qualms are to be had.
Traditional Lee Sin is a re-model of Lee Sin but it’s a bit unspectacular.
That doesn’t mean that it’s bad because his appearance is appropriate for a martial artist.
The tattoos and hairstyle do add a bit of flash to the style but overall it’s just Lee Sin wearing shorts.
At its price it’s not a bad product, worth purchasing for those that like the look; still, it offers little to be excited ...
Jack of Hearts is a distinct and even flashy re-texture for Twisted Fate.
It takes the heart suit as a base and decorates his clothes in a rather appealing though simple way.
In other words, the changes are small but the theme comes through along the nice red and white palette.
The blonde hair and beard seem to be a whim, much as his clothes resembling his old self’s style, yet they don’t clash with the theme.
Overall, Jack of Hearts is a whimsical but ...
Leprechaun Veigar is a skin that manages to push its theme with effort and mixed results.
As all joke skins it’s a concept that can get boring with time.
Nevertheless, that’s not its only issue: the model changes keep a layer of Classic Veigar that doesn’t suit the theme well.
Moreover, the new particles are added onto the classic particles.
Therefore, they feel forced on the champion rather than incorporated.
On the whole, it’s not an unsuitable ...
Crimson Elite Riven is a skin based on the eponymous Noxian corps.
The uniform seems tailored for freedom of movement which also helps to portray Riven’s lean silhouette.
In spite of that, the uniform isn’t revealing and provides an aggressive look heavily reflected in the design of both helmet and sword; though the rest of the suit successfully follows the trend.
Ultimately, Crimson Elite Riven displays a dark assertive look for Riven that suits her very ...
White Mage Veigar is a simple re-colour that hardly offers anything to set itself appart from Classic Veigar.
In fact, unless the new colour palette suits your taste there’s nothing here to be interested about.
At the very least, the red and white design is well executed and offers a subtle reference to Final Fantasy’s White Mages.
Still, there’s little to make this uninspired skin stand ...
Atlantean Fizz appears like a variation on Fizz’s classic concept, one being armoured and the other not.
Thus, it isn’t a skin that feels like a novel take or version of a champion.
That’s not to say that the look isn’t good, on the contrary: the armour and trident have a nice design with shell shapes all over while Fizz’s aspect seems closer to an octopus and less cartoon-like.
Chomper simply gets some light armour but it helps make the style ...
Assassin Master Yi covers him with a thin layer of modernism that fits the Wuju Bladesman but also doesn’t seem out of place.
In fact, the aspect, light on protection and subdued in colours, reminds of a contemporary ninja.
The result is attractive even if unspectacular and gives Yi a fresh flavour.
It’s worth noting that the distinct colour palette doesn’t mesh too well with the bright classic particles but it’s something tolerable.
In the end, Assassin ...
At a glance it might seem that Golden Alistar is just another re-colour.
However, there are model changes, not significant but noticeable, that aim at a different aesthetic.
The skin has an air of royalty thanks to the reinterpretation of restraining devices as lavish decorations.
The white hair also give Alistar a degree of elder wisdom that is rather fitting. Considering its low price, Golden Alistar provides enough.
Add to that the distinct look and how ...
