Which Faction Has the Best Looking Armor?

Postby Junglefowl26 » Tue Oct 20, 2015 10:39 pm

Since I have seen it discussed once or twice, I decided to see what group is the best dressed!

Well, best dressed for war anyway. This poll is about armor, or at least military uniforms in the case of the Jie'yen, Kavahini, and some divisions of larger clans, like the Fallen Legion. So it is not about robes, dresses, or any other kind of casual or formal wear (though that is also an interesting discussion.)

I will also say that non-canon counts for this, since I am including the Nals for their Relic Hunter armor and the Jaals for their armor from DayDream, even though neither clan has shown their armor in Moonless Age.

Balvhakara, because honestly in my opinion when it comes to "coolest looking" you can't beat power armor.

Can you put images of armor/uniforms form most of those clans?

Indeed, I thought this might happen, but it was worth a shot. Most of them work though.

While I do like the Illhar'dro masked cavalry that you marked as possibly mercenaries for the pure look of it, I lean toward the Kyorl the most. They may lack some variety in personal flair, but they make their wearers look clean, professional, and tough. Possibly even a little scary at times. Pure utility, every bit has its reason, even the lighter wear of the Inquisitors. You get the impression that armor is made for the person and there is no skimping, even if you're a commoner Crusader.

Sharen get that feel to a degree admittedly as far as professional, serious army goes. And I do like the variety of the Sarghress at times, shows that militia "bring what you got" feel that a large army sorta necessitates, but the Kyorl really cement that look of Templars going to war really nicely.

I have to say the Sharen by a very large margin. Its just the sheer variety of it

I love the teal dragon inspired armor of Zala's line
Sillice's armor is a beauty
Sarv's line had some pretty awesome designs
And the Imperial Guard was straight up REGAL

Voted Sharen for Zala's dragon armor. That said the other lines have some cool gear as well.

Dutan'vir, obviously. A pity we don't see their armor often...

I suppose I forgot to answer this myself.

My favorite is the Dutanvir - a nice mix of elegant and practical, with a color scheme that works really well.

Illhardro would probably be my second favorite. I especially love those cool jackets they wear.

After that is a tie between Black Sun and Vlozz. I have a strong fondness for mix and match armor.
