I want proper armour on the Frontier. I want proper medieval-looking armour for real men. The time hasn’t come quite yet to start dressing the settlers, but there’s no harm in scouting out the good stuff already. So over the past weeks, I’ve been playing a character wearing this. Baraban’s Witcher 2 Style Dawnguard and Standard Heavy Plate. I am really in love with it because of its high-quality texture work and, of course, its superior meshes ported from Witcher 2 (Yes, it’s possible. CD Projekt is far more relaxed to porting than, for an example, Bethesda which won’t even allow porting between their own games!).
Baraban has kindly accepted my request for permission to use it in Frontier. Here, on the Frontier, it will dress the heavy cavalry as well as parts of the nobility. This is what the barons, crusaders and knights will be wearing, and they will look the part. There are also variations on helmets as well as a shield attached to Baraban’s mod! Go download it already if you want to dress like a Frontier Baron today.
I still need more in the terms of clothing and armour. Clothing itself is a headache. There’s lots of skimpy stuff being made (nothing bad with that really – it’s what the Elder Scrolls is all about, innit?), but no serious clothing project I know of. The Frontier will be needing medieval and/or Roman inspired proper clothes for lower-, middle, and upper classes. I am also interested in all forms of good quality armour. The regular army of the Frontier will be needing something that looks like Roman armour mixed with medieval. If you have any suggestions or know links or artists that may be of assistance in this department, shoot me a comment!
