Guards have a lot of dialog which is enhanced when their facial expressions are visible. This mod changes all guard and Stormcloak helmets to open versions. Stormcloak helmets have a slightly darker finish on their leather parts.

I am not against closed face helmets. In fact I think that helmets such as Dwarven or Ebony have a great artistic touch as well as an air of intimidation in them. That wouldn't be a problem for guards (consider the guards in Morrowind), but guard dialog in Skyrim is often too funny to match with an intimidating piece of armor.

So, I asked (and received) for permission from Teh-Husky to use his meshes and textures which I combined with an esp to modify only guard and Stormcloak helmets. I like his designs very much -- they look very nice and realistic and they are complemented by very well designed ground objects. They also provide separate versions for Argonians, Khajiit and Orcs while taking female Orcs into consideration. I suggest that everyone checks out his mods here at Nexus.

To install the mod simply extract the bsa and esp files in your Data folder and enable them in your mod manager.

The Requiem folder contains the proper esp for Requiem (guard helmets in Requiem are considered heavy) which must be loaded after the Requiem mod.
