Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is a sandbox action-RPG strategy hybrid will take players on a journey into a fictional world of up-close and personal medieval combat on a huge scale, bigger, bloodier and more intense than ever before. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord will build upon the popular Mount & Blade franchise bringing in many exciting and highly requested new features.
I've been working on a project for about two weeks now. And at the end we got a suit of armour and some weapons.
Here is the helmet, this is from the warriors of Erebor that you may have seen in the Hobbit. A clear difference you'll notice is the colours. The red and gold you will see is a reoccurring theme.
The armour of the Royal Guard is fashioned from exquisite furs, rare metals and steel hammered by the most skilled blacksmiths. Although it's very ornate you will not find higher quality armour, save Mythril and crafts of the Elves of old. Only the richest nobles and most skilled warriors could afford the armour.
There were many warrior divisions of the Royal guard for military purposes. First off the most common set up would be the basic royal guard:
They would serve as Dwarven lords' bodyguard for travelling and battle. Equipping a one handed axe or warhammer and shield they make a very strong infantry. With heavy armour and shield they excel at prolonged melees and grinds and at the same time being almost invulnerable to most missile fire.
The Erebor Champion has been recognized for his incredible skill on the battlefield. Switching out a shield for a larger weapon to deal out more damage. The champions act like a shock troop. Charging in on flanks to decimate enemy formations and morale. Although facing a skilled opponent for prolonged engagements will show weakness.
Erebor Vault Keepers:
After many losses to the heavy cataphracts of Rhun Dwarves needed a formidable solution. So came the Vault Keepers. Carrying pikes more than triple their height the vault keepers could turn off any cavalry regiment. With unwavering morale, iron hard discipline, and perfect formation drilling these Dwarves can eliminate any cavalry force, wargs, horses, or other beasts. Due to the increased range of the pike there are some cases of the pikedwarfs driving off weaker trolls with ease.
The armour was inspired by, yes you guessed it, weta concept drawings.
The Armour was made before the beard was applied so I didn't realize the fancy emblem would be blocked! I am not the most experienced armour maker, I usually make more weapons and scene assets. but as most things I make this isn't truly a finished model. I'll come back making changes here and there, hopefully, increasing it's quality!
Comments and criticism would be appreciated :)
