I like the way blades stuff looks with orcish stuff. It's got that blue-green thing goin.

On an orc:

Blades armor and boots
Orcish gauntlets and battleaxe
Jade and sapphire circlet
Dark green face paint (around the eyes and streaking down)
Big ol beard.

Carved Nordic Armour, Boots and Gauntlets with the Helm of Yngol.
HOLY ****! What is this? Forged in Gods very flames! Do mine eyes tell me lies? A new Elder Scrolls game?
Time is nigh, I must fly, Venture forth on my quest!

I like the carved nordic. It doesn't really fit my current character, though. or my next one actually. I'm planning on a khajiit. A cat wearing bear armor seems tacky.

I'm ocd about how things look. Doesn't the Yngol have an iron look to it? Carved Nordic seems kinda metallic. That might bug me.

The armor used by my male Nord main.

Early game: Fur Boots + Fur Gauntlets + Leather Helm + Studded Armor

Keeps the classic light armor look, but looks much better than studded + hide. Efficiency be damned.

Mid Game: Steel Armor

I know, you're thinking "What!? Steel, that's boring!" not if the armor was crafted with the hide of the White Stag and forged in the fires of the Skyforge it's not.

Late Game: Dawnguard Light

Switched it up back to light armor. Plus, you know, vampires n' stuff.

Late Game 2: Ancient Nord Armor + Helm of Yngol (+ Dragonbone Greatsword)

Behold! Perfection! Seriously, it looks amazing.

I like that you have different armors for stages of the game. I do that, but more according to my whimsies.

I started out with iron and did what I could. Then I finally made it to my first planned out armor:

Fur armor- the kind that just covers your legs
Dragonbone gauntlets
Leather boots
No helmet

That all looked sick while dual wielding dragonbone war axes.

Then I worked out some stalhrim stuff:

Stalhrim heavy armor
Steel cuffed boots
Dragonbone gauntlets and helmet

What's kinda cool is that my orc has evolved from looking very brutish and wild to looking older and more arcane.

Forsworn armor or Vampire armor.

I will move forward, shaking off the surging darkness.

Hide armor, bracers and boots. It's been my favourite for a while now.
