It looks pretty cool! Even with this texture.
Low-poly with almost 8.000 polys, wow :o
Its not 8,000 polys, its actually triangular faces, becuase the games use triangels instead of quads. So if it was untriangulated then it would be around 3,000 to 4,000. Also its not going to be in multiplayer so, it doesnt have to be that low.
Also the high poly version which didnt even have half the details I added to this one was around 50,000 or so polys. And the guys said the limit was 8,000 tris, so thats what I did :).
