Good full plate armor is hard to come by. I’ve been hunting for an adjustable set for quite some time. I knew of Silhouette Warfare from a while ago..but never bothered to buy anything because it’s so damn expensive. Well..my desire for armor finally broke me down to snag something from them.
This armor is kind of..old school, being sculpty and not mesh. Now..that’s really not a bad thing. Sure, it was incredibly annoying to adjust piece by piece..but I could actually fit it fairly decently to the Aesthetic body. Don’t expect to buy this and have it fit right away. It took me a lot of tweaking, and it still isn’t perfect in some areas.
Still, it looks great, the details are awesome for it being sculpty, damn near better than some of the rigged mesh stuff I’ve seen. The price is…fairly high, so I can’t recommend buying it unless you’re really hungry for some armor, and you want to put the time in to adjust it.
“A barbarian roams through the forest, blade poised..cold, glacier blue eyes wide and ready with battlelust. A rustle of branches makes his head snap in that direction. He rushes forward, swiping his mighty sword through the air..only for a chipmunk to burst out from the bush and scurry off. A frustrated howl comes from the big man, kicking at the bush before stomping away grumpily.”
Yooo, another new look…kind of…not so different really. Just a bit of an older, darker skin from Aeros that I wanted to check on the Aesthetic body. Works good! I mean look at the shine with the lighting settings cranked up, daymn. There’s always a thing where I made a new look and I want to make a roleplaying character out of it. It’s kind of annoying, I don’t want a million characters like I usually end up doing on every game ever created. Bit of a habit I guess, maybe I would just use this look to replace my other big bad dark skinned bearded one.
Either way, the arm armor is from a place called LAB737, specifically from The Secret Affair event. The detail on it is sick, some of the best I’ve ever seen. Gorgeous texture quality and edges so sharp you can cut an apple on them. It’s obviously kind of Roman-era looking, but I can see this also fitting a Mad Max type setting as well. There’s also neck and leg armor at The Fantasy Collective from them that matches. Go and check it out for reals.
PFC, how lovely you be. The arm and leg armor is from the Champion set. I’d say it’s the best detailed armored I’ve seen so far. It’s detailed all the way down to those tiny lil delicious grapes, can’t go wrong with that. The belt, which I didn’t wear for this outfit, comes with rigged mesh and non-rigged which is how EVERY store should do armor. Might cost a bit more to upload two versions (I think?)..but goddamn it’s nice.
The belt is from a store called Ravensoul. They have a nice selection of new mesh stuff and older sculpty outfits. Now you might ask,”But, Sithas…mesh is the best right? RIGHT?!” Well, kind of…but sometimes no. I’ve found with certain types of armor that older stuff is much easier to adjust and fit on different kinds of bodies. Also, you don’t run the risk of it being rigged. I’m always happy to see stores still having old style gear around, still looks damn good too. Flexi loincloths do look a bit silly sometimes but…hey…they work!
Some new armor and also a body update! The armor is from an old school joint I’m pretty sure most everyone has heard of, Bare Rose. They have so much stuff at their store you’ll most likely find SOMETHING you like, and it’s all cheap as hell too. L$190 for a full suit of armor? Don’t mind if I do. This set came with rigged and non-rigged mesh..sadly the rigged parts don’t fit on the body. Still worth a pick up if you’re looking for some traditional, cheap priced plate armor.
The update for the Niramyth Aesthetic body is great. Tons of tweaks and a redesigned HUD. They added a lot more alpha layer options, now you can specifically do alphas for the front AND back of the body. What was already worth the price just became even more worth it! New clothing layer options, tattoo layers for hands/feet, and material texture on the body to give it a hell of a cool shine with the right graphics/lighting settings.

Yet another armor set from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival! This one is from a store called TURB, not a store I’m very familiar with. It comes with both rigged mesh (that doesn’t fit this body at all) and non-rigged pieces which can be adjusted to your liking. That’s nice enough, but I hate it when there’s pieces of armor that look like they’re just stuck to your skin. Maybe it’s some sort of slutty enchant so you can wiggle around with nice smooth bare thighs. I just wish there were some straps is all. I was hoping to get the black, bronze or copper, of course I got the set that I wanted the least. Many lindens were pumped into that machine and I got torso and arm pieces out the wazoo…so damn frustrating. Two rares before getting even one common leg piece!
At first I didn’t like the set that much, but it’s grown on me. It’s finely detailed with non-rigged pieces that you can modify. It’s sad how rare non-rigged modify armor can be these days. It has it’s problems and it being a gacha with more than one armor color you might piss all your money away just to get ten different arms in different colors that you don’t want. If you want to get a complete matching set, it might be better to wait until pieces start to pop up in yardsales/marketplace at decent prices. I’m all for supporting the lovely content creators of Second Life directly, but goddamn…there’s just too much gacha these days, man! What ever happened to just…new releases? Let me give ya’ll money without burning a hole in my wallet, please.

I am always scouring the grid for awesome bits of armor and weaponry. My journey has brought me to the land of Dark Prophet Designs. A land I know well and enjoy very much. I’ve been buying stuff from them since I first came across them. Their weapon harness alone is more often than not in many of the outfits I put together. If you’ve never been there before and you loooove fantasy stuff…just go…now.
Now to talk about the Dominion armor from them specifically. It’s a damn nice looking set, isn’t it? The detail is deliciously decadent with that worn metal, rough cloth and scratched leather. The bits of chain mail are a fine touch, though I almost wish there was just a bit more. At first I thought the waist was much too narrow and the shoulders/boots were too big. It’s strange, but the more I look at it the more it DOESN’T look that way. However, with only the pants and boots on it does look a bit odd with less bulky armor up top. I have zero complaints about how it looks all together. If you want to be a big, bulky armored beast..I’d suggest picking this up highly. At L$1,600 it might sting your wallet a bit, but for all that it comes with and the amount of detail it has it’s well worth it.
