Couple more images for light armor.

Padded armor - some interesting options, though some of these have too much clutter on them I think. Ideally, this set should fit everyone - soldiers, bandits, adventurers, etc. Still, nice designs.

Leather armor - still cool, but with more protective elements, like an actual pauldron:

It's not perfect armor, but I agree with ironmask that the leather set needs to be more protective overall and I am thinking of something like this in the end. Keep the aesthetic, but add some actual defence to it.

Found some awesome concepts by Beyond Skyrim for High Rock, I will post them here as I thought we might incorporate some of their ideas in the future. They really go for that celtic look, which I think actually works very well! All credit goes to these guys, hope they do not mind - https://www.darkcreations.org/forums/fo ... r-of-dawn/

I like the idea of making some of the armor look Celtic looking. I also think It would be a cool idea to make high rock look more Celtic to make the culture and buildings a little more unique.

I'd say allow color swapping to allow multiple types of armor across multiple designs, but still limit it based on the material.

Chainmail armor could be any material type, save for the bracers, boots, and helmet which should be part of the plate armor designs. Chainmail could be worn on top of padded armor, but below plate armor.

The iron armor design should be left mostly as iron-only as loot. Maybe some poor elven soldiers could have elven versions of it, or a well-to-do commoner could have a steel version of it. All other materials with this design should be left for crafting only, as most armorsmiths who can use better materials would make more fancy armor.

The steel armor design could also be used for many different materials based on who is wearing it. Elven and orcish varients could exist depending on where the soldier is from. The steel and silver armor look a little too similar, save for the cloth on top.

Adamantium armor should be left as adamantium-only, maybe with the exception of and ebony version of it either for crafting or as an exceptionally rare piece of loot.
