Tribal Armor Concept(s): Waerd Light and Medium Armor

Hail Elyrians!

Shiny time is upon us again! Why, it seems like a short while ago that we were sharing a concept sculpt of the mysterious Dras Light Armor, doesn't it? Ah well, time flies and, while the Dras armor may have been mysterious, it wasn't weird.

So, what do you say? Do you want to see something Waerd? Something really Waerd? I know I do! That's why we selected the Waerd light armor concept sculpt for today's shiny.

And in true weird Waerd form, it's not actually shiny at all:

Though, that hardly seems fair, right? An unshiny shiny just feels like bad form, so while no one was looking, a few of us conspired to bring you a second shiny for the day, the Waerd's medium armor concept sculpt. Have a look!

Facelessness is more than an intimidation tactic among the Waerd. Their beliefs create within their communities a sense of singularity - a sense that all Waerd are the Waerd - and their armor is emblematic of this concept. On the battlefield, the Waerd fight as one, and no one warrior calls themselves out above the rest. Only the need for some Waerd to wear more or less armor differentiates them at a distance. For those enemies that delight in decapitating an army by severing their connection to their leaders, the Waerd are a problematic foe, for who among the multitude is the leader?

As with all of our concept sculpts, the Waerd armor sculpts are an exploration of materials, vertex weighting, and other elements that describe how the armor lays on the body and how it looks in use.

I hope you enjoy it! :)

I love that red color on the light armor! I'd wear that by itself for fashion. LOL!

neat. I like it. Reminds me of The Immortals from 300 a bit.

The medium armor looks great however the light armor doesn't look like armor.

Im really digging the faceless helmet, very intimidating. Gives off mystery and singularity.

Armor sets look really good. Curious to see what a heavy armor set would look like.
