Greek armor--Peek at a new armor by Stromboli!

Post by Stromboli » Fri Apr 17, 2009 10:36 am

Well, with the positive response from my last armor, I decided to try something new, and so somehow I got this. It's not finished by any means but it's a start. Comments and criticism warmly received.

Naturally, it has quite a few kinks to iron out first, so I'm not releasing it yet. If you really want to use it, I might post it.

EDIT: Test file attached. I don't see why not, try it out and tell me what you think.

hmm, nice, but the pants sometimes look like short shorts.

cool looking armor.

I think the shorts were supposed to be a kilt, right, but that doesn't work once it's stuck to the wireframe?

(So instead of manly short-shorts you'd have an extra manly skirt :lol: )

Skirts or not, though, those guys were badass.

I loved that part of the Rome series where one of the main characters ( the cranky captain) Javelins a fleeing enemy. The guy's running away at top speed and the captain throws a high trajectory long bomb that nails him between the shoulder blades at about 50 meters/yards.
Talk about the origins of track and field sports.

... That would be SO COOL in OG... So would a shield, and fighting moves that used it.

NICE!

I study history and ancient Greece is my favorite. I like this a lot.

I've put the download links to my weapons in my signature.

And here's a bigger image of my Falcata.

Signatures are disabled on these forums. Good thing too, really. People can still view your signature in your profile, though.

Keep updating that list!
Oh, and it's Armoury.. =p

Silly brits. Or canadians. Spoiling the American language.

I'm really confused with the language here. I do bad on writing assignments because I spell things the American way.

I believe you'll find it's the other way round.
Also, the word 'Armory' doesn't exist in either language, afaik.
Ah, well. :lol:

"An armory (or armoury) is a military depot used for the storage of weapons and ammunition."

HA :mrgreen:

Seriously?
Well, then my spelling checkers fail.

In my defence, I did say 'afaik'. =3
