My review of the first version of this skin:
I think the first thing asgWULF wants to get straight about his World War II skin NaxRal is that he is NOT a Nazi. He points out that the Iron Crosses on his shoulders were from his father and brother who fought in WWI.
I actually really like this skin. I'm not sure which model was used, but it looks familiar and stuff. Problem is, I don't know how different this reskin is from the original model/skin. All I do know is that I really like this look. The lapels of the jacket, the little details on the sleeves and pants and the eyes. The eyes look great. I don't quite understand why Nax has like, most of his face covered here, but I guess it works.
The most unfortunate thing about this skin is that there's no bot support or team skins and no new sounds. This skin begs for a custom taunt and some custom death sounds. It would also have been nice to see some variations on this skin for some variety for the blue and red team skins.
I can't explain why this is one of my favorite skins. It just has a very polished look to it. So what's been changed for version 2? Well, the default skin has been cleaned up a bit more. The red is gone (which is a good thing) and it just looks better. There are a few other new skins included too. There's a brown camo one, a chrome one, a stealth one and then, of course, there's team support - yay! The chrome skin totally could've been left out. I don't like it at all and it just doesn't belong here. The team skins are a little too ... almost pastel and those colors just don't work here, in my opinion. It's unfortunate that asgWULF STILL hasn't added new sounds. It seems to be the one thing that I feel is one of the most important parts of a skin that he keeps leaving out. Oh, and if this isn't for JK2, my apologies ... but you never tell us whether something is for JK2 or JA. :P

Mod Name: NaxRal version 2 Author: asgWULF (asgWULF@hotmail.com) Included Team and Bot support Nax's Back Story: No one knows who Nax's true parents are, he was adopted by the Wurzbach family after their youngest son died. Senior Wurzbach and his eldest son Vincent were famed soldiers and had both been awarded the Iron Cross during World War I. During the Depression the Wurzbachs and their newly adopted son Nax (who they named Luther) were unaffected themselves, but were crushed by the despair and problems across Germany. Due to this the Wurzbach's became big supporters of Hitler, believing he could save Germany. In 1938 15 year old Luther was enrolled in Hitler youth, but quickly dropped out. With rumours of genocide sweeping the land the Wurzbach's quietly backed away from the Nazi party and moved to southern Germany. After war began in 1939 an SS officer appeared at their doorway, offering a senior Wurzbach a commission in the army as a General. Wurzbach declined, but Vincent, still full of national pride joined. Vincent would die months later falling during a rebel strike in France. After Vincent's death, Wurzbach begged the now 17 Luther to leave, before he was drafted into an "Army of Hell" (as his father called it). Luther agreed and traveled to Palestine, where he could research the travels of Jesus. Six months later, Luther travled to Tibet, hoping there, he could avoid the ever growing war. In summer of 1943, even most of China was affected and Luther decided to return home. Arriving in December, 1943, Luther found the Wurzbach mansion burned to the ground and a grave erected for his adopted mother. Filled with anger Luther raided a small Nazi outpost killing the thirty-some soldiers and making off with supplies. For two months he made similar raids, including one at a Holocaust camp, with another disgruntled german, James Meyer. While breaking into the Holocaust camp he found his father, dying of malnutrition and experiments gone awry. His father told him the legend of Nax Ral, an ancient warrior who had freed the Europe from tyrant 5,000 years ago. Forgotten by most, the Wurzbach house passed down stories of Nax Ral and held the belief he would return, to save Germany in it's darkest hour. Luther swore he would kill Hitler, the man who had betrayed his family and all of Germany. Adopting NaxRal as his name, Luther/Nax began to hunt him down. Finally, he caught up with Hitler, who was hiding in his bunker. There Nax killed Hitler and freed Germany from one of the most fearsome tyrants of all time. The Skins Default- Nax in his mask.
