That is pretty nice indeed.

My only niggle would be the unit frames need to be more "in character", they're too minimalistic if that makes any sense

They need some decoration to bring them more inline with the theme (my 2c anyway)

Agreed, still working on them. I'll probably go bigger along the y axis, and add matching border, along with a texture change.

The inner top shadow on the action bars seems a little heavy, and obscures the action buttons too much.

You might consider adding a background to the FPS/latency/memory bar under the minimap, or just getting rid of it altogether, since this information isn't really relevant to gameplay. If you tend to get curious about it, put it in your clock's tooltip or something.

Also, your clock and coordinates seem to be randomly placed. I'm guessing you just forgot to put them in their place before screenshotting. I'd suggest putting them in the box below the minimap where the system stats are currently.

Finally, tiny pixel fonts are tiny.

Hmmm. I really like the actionbar overlay. What would be interesting is if you could theme the unitframes in the same way.
