Skyrim Banded Iron Armor - final

By Folkenstal
Ok, so here's the banded iron armor. Finally done.
That was hard work, I hope it pays off :)

I think it looks quite good, it has a feeling of a real iron armor.
Not satisfied with a few things. Could have done it better, but I think it's still ok.

....How in the name of Vex if she was slightly friendly was a human able to make that?

The game armor might not be that good, but this recreation is amazing! I'd think it were battle-ready! Those straps are my favorite part. :P

thanks!
Yes, the protection isn't that high, but the design is nice :)

Im drawing a SKyrim comic and Im trying to figure out how my character would put on his iron armor... I can see openings on the sides of the armor but the shoulder part appears to be joined together (according to the in-game assets) ... do you wear it by putting the armor over the head? If so, how would you get the arms in? (I don't imagine one would easily pry the armor open to slide the arms through the side openings)

It's a two part armor, the front and back piece, yeah.
But leather pieces are holding the shoulders together :)
So, just open it like a book and put your head through, no problem.
