Like... I really like it.
And I am going to buy it, because I think Taric really rocks the Crimson Reaper / Count / Blood Lord vibe. It's a great concept and implementation (and I now understand how the Chinese Nightraven Fiora artwork managed to get through QA...)
... but it's not Bloodstone Taric. Or, at least from my anecdotal experience, none of my friends who think Bloodstone is his best skin will like this direction. They like the skin because he is ironclad in "manly red" armor with none of that puffy crap (his leg warmers). And, to be fair, I can objectively say the two skins are not equivalent in theme at all.
