A simple MESH replacer (no esp) that gives the statue of Talos a Greatsword rather than that toothpick he was holding - for a more warrior-like Talos statue.

I like the Talos statue, a good thing considering how many there are scattered across Skyrim, but I never liked the little sword he was holding. I also don't really like the shape of the serpent's head so I reshaped it.
I've had this in my house mod for a long time but this mod will replace all Talos statues in Skyrim, including mods unless they didn't use the vanilla statue.

INSTALL:
Use the included installer (requires NMM or one of the other mod managers), or install manually if you like.
Choose a statue mesh and a sword.

There is NO ESP file, so this won't affect your load order or plugin count.

OPTIONS:
  • Low-poly statue mesh: Vanilla Talos statue with minor snake edits (the above image uses this), or
  • High-poly statue mesh: (recommended) I've created my own smoother statue version that was manually edited to maintain the vanilla form and prevent texture distortion.
PLUS:
  • Iron Greatsword, or
  • Steel Greatsword, or
  • Silver Greatsword, or
  • Nord Hero Greatsword, or
  • Dragonbone Greatsword (Dawnguard)

COMPATIBILITY:
Will only conflict with other Talos statue MESH replacers, totally compatible with everything else!
  • To use with StunningStatues/TerrificTalos: use my Hi-Poly version, overwrite SS/TT to use his textures.
  • For the snow-covered statue of No Snow Under the Roof use the NSUtR patch (high-poly only). Pick a sword option and overwrite the NSUtR mesh. Pick a different sword from the main file for statue variety in Skyrim.

CREDIT:
The included sword textures are modified versions of vanilla or CaBaL120's BoS greatsword textures, used here with permission.
The greatsword meshes are the reshaped models from my Better-Shaped Weapons mod.

PERMISSIONS:
You can use these meshes in your House or Dungeon/Quest mod, just add me to the credits please.
