This mod will no longer be updated. I have moved the whole Virtuss imperii project to this :

Virtus Imperii - Armour and Weapons

About the Mod

The Virtus Imperii project aims at providing a re-fined and more imperial look to the whole Vanilla Imperial gear. It will give them a more ancient Roman look while preserving all the symbols and characteristics of Tamriels Empire. I will release 2 different mods under this label, one for the weapons and shields and the other for the armour sets.

Virtus Imperii Part I provides lore friendly HD re-textures and re-colours of the vanilla Imperial weapons and shields which give them a more unique and visually pleasing look.

The corresponding armours can be found here :

Virtus Imperii Part II - Armory

About the looks of it images can say more than thousand words of mine - especially since I had the honour to be able to get some of the greatest screenarchers on the Nexus as beta testers for my work. Be sure to check out their remarkable work in the gallery on this front page and in the image section of this mod.

Skyrim 1.8+ is required for this mod to work. As a pure texture replacer this contains no ESP file.


Download the mod file and extract the file into your skyrim directory, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\Data and say "yes" when being asked to integrate and override.

I have added the weapons and shields as seperate optional files if you like only one of the sets.


Delete the file via NMM or manually by deleting the files contained in the mod folder within your Skyrim "Textures" folder.
