Non-Ranger Outfit: Rohan Armor Sets

Sorry for the long delay between posts.  Life had taken hold and I could not escape its grasp!  Back now, though, and have a few new outfits lined up to display.  But first and foremost, I need to shift gears slightly and dig deep to find my Rohan side.

Given the fact that Helms Deep is right around the corner (and like a giddy little kid I went out and bought the most expensive addition with all the little perks and such), I started to fiddle around with the three different sets of Rohan armor to see what sorts of Rohan-ish type coolness I could make.  Here are a few of my favorite combinations with some action shots thrown in for good measure (I have to say I really like the scalable shield–good job devs!).  I realize these are all dismounted pictures.  Apologies to my Rohan-purist friends out there.

1. Heavy Cavalry

The first set is a fully armored heavy horse soldier.  Meant to fight at a full gallop, the armor is meant to look like it can withstand a beating.  I’m very pleased with how this turned out!

2. Soldier of Lighthorse

The next outfit I tried for a more rustic look; thankfully the new Hammerhand set made a really great focal point.  I used no armor piece with the exception of the helm to tie it all together.  The point was to give an appearance of a soldier fighting in a  lighthorse company.

3. The Noble Rohirrim

Of this one I took only one screenshot; this is a good leisurely outfit for a Rohan RPer.  Lightly armored, but not threatening.  When I was creating it I wanted to give him a look of nobility.  It turned out well!

This is the outfit Ked is currently sporting. It’s great for stealthy type characters and it’s grey color blends perfect with the default warsteed color for those, like me, who are having a bit of trouble stomaching the high Lotro Store prices for warsteed customization.
