It's ready!

After a really long while and countless reformulations, I decided to publish the latest version of the armor.

This set consists in a coat of plates with and without a pelt, a helmet and a pair of greaves - of course, nordic style.

This by no means try to be historically accurate, rather an anachronistic depiction bringing a Vendel Era feel to a late 13th/early 14th century equipment, to match the Nords better in the Warband technological timeline.

I wanted to release it with more pieces, but my life is a mess right now and for sure it will take a long time before I have it done, so here goes so you guys can use it a bit before Bummerlord comes out.

Hope you like it!

Permissions:

You can add any piece of this set to your mod without contacting me first - but to do so you need to credit my work, no exceptions.

If it's going to be used in the context of a mod, you can make modifications on it, be it a retexture or even a remodeling, just note that it's modified and credit the original work and you're good to go.

If you want to make a variant/redo and upload in any other context, please contact me first.

Credits:

Some textures were taken from images, like the pelt.

The belt buckles and a small detail in the helmet were taken and modified from images of ancient Viking/Vendel Era pieces, all the rest sculpted/painted by me, metal and leather textures included.

Yay, it's done :grin:

Do you mind changing your requirements for redistribution a wee bit, asking for explicit credit and requesting, but not requiring, that all modifications be approved by you?  See how Narf and Dejawolf handle this issue.

Basically, I want to make some changes to the skin, and I don't include things in Blood and Steel that I can't give back to others to use, so this would be very helpful :smile:

In truth I have rushed through that part, I haven't understood it completely, now it's correct.

I changed in the description too, as first I wrote that if possible to contact me, but I removed that as well  :wink:

EDIT: Nice of your part asking first too, even if it was not that necessary  :smile:

I always ask; some people here are persnickety about these things, and their work can't be used as a result.  Anyhow, I always pass back anything major I do past minor re-colors and the like, so you can yell at me then if you don't like it or let others use it if you do :smile:

It's fantastabulous. Now it just needs a nifty pair of boots to go along with it. :razz: Hinthintwinkwinknudgenudge.

I got back working on this pack and I couldn't find a way to finish the current armour.

I'm definitely not happy with its current state, it needs a big change to have the features that are bugging me wiped out .

Adding to that, the main texture file got corrupted, so in order to make all the necessary changes I'll have double work ahead.

Therefore, I decided that it don't worth the endeavour, so I'll not be working on it anymore.

Then, I got a creative burst and done this:


I think it has a more badass and nordic look than the last version, so I'll work on this concept for now on.

What do you think?

I think your concept art looks fairly awesome.  I look forward to seeing a modeled version of that.

Very impressive! I'd love to have more nord items in the game. They are definitely my favorite faction.

Made a small test with the pelt, the new helm and the old version of the armour:


I liked what I saw. I think I'll work on it again, and it will be a variant, I just need to get rid of those hideous knee cops :razz:

Obs.: Greaves and gauntlets made by Narf; Danish axe made by dejawolf (I resized it)

Some advancements on the helmet:




Just need to adjust the UV map a bit, make the leather part and it's done, then I'll move to the armour.
