This guy's series isn't 100% perfect (some of his characters designs feel too pauldroncore for my tastes, personally) but his Mandalorian armors are a really great fantastical armor that looks and feels just semi-realistic enough.

>>
>>77701784
Looking back at it after posting my favorite piece from that series, this is probably my least-favorite piece. The more adventurous Jedi a character is and the more cartoonish their source material, the more pauldroncore his interpretations get.

Even then though, this isn't all that bad because they're Jedi and can get away with wearing just pauldrons and aesthetic-only-maille for style points. And even then you have more down-to-earth Jedi like Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon wearing a decent amount of armor and even using shields, so the aggregate is less pauldroncore than I remember.
>>
>>77701897
Then you have stuff like this, that's very clearly a couple of steps away from effectively realistic gear and the artist was obviously using pretty decent-quality references.

I really appreciate that it had a lot of flavour.

Almost everything at least looked period accurate, regardless of how practical it would have actually been.

This is exactly how the concept of "studded leather" was developed, by some guy that just took pictures at face value, except at least Gary Gygax or whoever the fuck it was only had access to a small library with old books, whereas you have the fucking internet and were given the name and still choose to be ignorant and spout ignorant shit.

Ah yes, good taste anon. Russian are very interesting. They combine Scandinavian, Eastern Roman and Steppe Nomad/Muslim esthetics. Also, I find Druzhina to be very cool. They are basically Russin Knights, while they used lances and could charge, they also extensively used bows.

For my part, it's one step above realistic armour, helmet optional. Something like most Bretonnia and Empire artwork.

Those Aztec warriors in garish pyjamas never cease to bring a smile to my eye. Incidentally, those gold and silver gilt jackets make me think of something like scales, worn where the Europeans would wear mail.
>>
I like when the helmet is full-face, and there’s no exposed skin anywhere. To me, the idea of the helmet being the entire face of the knight is pretty cool. Kinda like the Mandalorian, or a series like Infinity blade where we don’t see faces.

Monsters and demons have facial features. But knights and heroes have them hidden, with the helmet itself being their identity. It makes them embody the concept of a faceless, great warrior, instead of a fallible human with a squishy face under the helm.

For better or for worse, yeah. A helmet that's their entire face, linked to their notoriety or accomplishments. I like protags where a cool helmet is their entire appearance. Goblin Slayer, Doomguy, Samus Aran, Master Chief, etc. The most iconic Dark Souls NPCs have a helmet instead of a face.

Bonus points if it's a troupe of jobber mercs with identical helmets, and the boss has a clearly upgraded version of their outfit, with a more detailed helm and colored cloth on their armour.

There was actually an online lecture on Aztec featherwork (speffically of shields) a few weeks ago, if either of you are interested I can post it

>Incidentally, those gold and silver gilt jackets make me think of something like scales, worn where the Europeans would wear mail.
Well, it's hard to say how comparable it is for sure, since again, that one line is the only reference to it I know of. There's a speculative reconstruction of it here: https://twitter.com/ohs688/status/1345229077007851520 , though I'm personally wondering if perhaps there's some mistranslation going on simply due to there being no other contexts where Metal armor is mentioned or depicted, but OHS688 and Rafael Mena there are as/more educated then I am, so eh

As far as the jackets/tunic in the image I posted in >>77716738 that that cyan underline points to, those are Ehuatl (see also pic, this being the famous poet-engineeer-king of Texcoco Nezalhualcoyotl) It's basically the same concept of the Tlahuiztli full-body warsuits (thick cotton base with feather mosiac over it; both would have been worn over ichcahuipilli) just in a tunic or vest form rather then a full body suit, often with a skirt of leather strips and/or feathers (like greek/roman skirt armor) and often fancy regalia, as for the Mexica at least Ehuatl was largerly limited to royalty and very high officer/general roles (other Nahuas, or at least the Tlaxcalteca, used it more liberally)

>Mexica
Much of what you see in the image there would apply to other Nahua groups too, not just the Mexica speffically, mind you; if not Mesoamerican civillizations as a whole in a looser sense (for example, the Mixtec also had the Ichcahuipilli vests/tunics (the magenta underline in that image), just with vertical rather then cross stitching, though they only used full body animal themed warsuits in ritualistic rather then martial contexts, along with some (also very colorful) Mixtec specific armor and banners)

japanese designs inspired on western armors are really good. for me some of the best noes are the Saint Seiya ones, Omega brought some fresh aesthethic and characters, shame it shat on old lore as onall of the new things it brought

I have allot of favorites I cant decide between. Each is best in their own context. I prefer historical armours but I dont mind more fantasy flairs.

I tend to like:
-Crusader era full mail, great helm and surcoat
-Late medieval full plate
-Classical greek hoplite with corinthian helm
-Imperial roman heavy Lorica
-Late roman/byzantine heavy armor (esp cataphracts)
-Sengoku jidai samurai armor (and warrior monks)

I also have a soft spot for tolkein dwarf style armor and generic female fantasy 'dress' armor.

I too like simple armour. It makes the little personal touches on the armour stand out more rather than overly busy pop fantasy designs. Plus, the game and settings that feature it usually have more intricate or deadly melee combat which I love.

Yeah, I don;t care if it's historically accurate or not, that's how people draw Templars in fantasy art, and that's what I like. Next you'll tell me Vikings didn't wear horned helmets or some shit, and I won;t care, I like the horned helmet look for vikings. Fuck the real shit, I like the fake shit better. To me horned helmets is the "Classic" Viking look.

Based. Jap weapon designs look cooler than they are effective.

Hell, even the kicks in Karate were from a french martial art called Savate. Aikido is mostly bullshido but kendo has been a bit lore effective (but has shown a lot of losses to fat Hema nerds).

Nothing beats the real thing. I have never seen a fantasy version of armor and thought its' differences from real life were improvements.
