Hvergelmir's Steel Armory is a complete retexturing of Skyrims steel armor and weapons (not including Steel Plate and Imperial type armor). This page is part of Hvergelmir's Armor Retexture - HAR, but serves as a separated download for those that don't want the whole HAR package. The textures are updated with a new hand painted high resolution texture, that stay true to the lore and style of vanilla Skyrim (and TES in general). The new textures will be double (200% width, 200% height) the size of the original textures to show a lot more detail than the vanilla textures ever did. With additional detail work and highly detailed normal maps, each piece will truly come to live and actually look authentic and realistic.

For more information, news and progress head over to the main page at Hvergelmir's Armor Retexture - HAR.

Regarding the current steel textures I intend to eventually redo the ornamental engravings. Truth to be told, they were kinda rushed for a quicker release and I didn't give myself time to actually hand paint custom engravings for each item. I intend to keep the same style for the engravings once I get to that, bit instead keep a bit more "simplistic" look in the sense that the engraving for each section could "limited" to one knotwork pattern customized for that particular shape. So please avoid comment on this matter (such as it being "too much", as it is already taken into account). That said, please enjoy Hvergelmir's Steel Armory!

It is recommended to install Hvergelmir's Steel Armory with Nexus Mod Manager, it simplifies the process greatly and also makes it simple to uninstall again if needed.

To manually install Hvergelmir's Steel Armory, use either WinRar or 7-Zip to extract the files to: Steamsteamappscommonskyrim
If asked to override, click yes. Please keep in mind this will override any other armor (re)textures you currently have installed (not including vanilla textures).

To manually uninstall Hvergelmir's Steel Armory, delete the steel folder inside armor found here: Steamsteamappscommonskyrimdatatexturesarmor

These mods will improve the female armor figure according to your personal preference:
Calientes Female Body Mod Big Bottom Edition -CBBE- - New female body
Calientes Vanilla Armor for CBBE - Reshaped armor meshes for body mod mentioned above

Fully customizable with use of Caliente's BodySlide Tool.

You may not under any circumstances use my textures for a mod of your own without my explicit written permission.
If you see this mod distributed at any other place than on SkyrimNexus that is NOT found in the mirrors list, it is being distributed illegally. Please contact me here if you find such case. If the website is in a foreign language that you speak, it would be of great help for me if you contacted them yourself and notified them of this on my behalf.

I am open to suggestions and collaboration work on other mods, got any great ideas feel free to contact me. My strong side is mainly (re)texturing, but I am flexible and should be suitable for other jobs.

Are you a mod creator yourself and have made some fancy armor? Like my armor texture work? Want it in YOUR mod? Feel free to contact me then and we could work something out. If I really dig your style I might even be willing to do custom textures for your mod as well!

If you like my work, I'd appreciate it highly if you'd comment or post screenshots with my work!
