This mod is a nexus LE port for NordWarUA's mod "Unplayable Faction Armors" hosted on another site. This mod adds sets of new armor and weapons to minor unjoinable factions in the base game, namely the Vigilants of Stendarr, Silver Hand, Alik'r, Blood Horkers, and Blackblood Marauders.

(Taken and translated from the original mod page)

Vigilants of Stendarr- An order dedicated to eradicating Daedra founded immediately after the Oblivion crisis. Has a network of bases throughout Tamriel including Skyrim. The main striking force of the order is the knights, dressed in armor with heraldic capes with the symbol of the cup of mercy of Stendarr. Armed with blunt weapons and shields, trained to use recovery magic.
Silver Hand- mercenaries and professionals - hunting for monsters. No one knows where their main base is and who gives the orders, but judging by the equipment you can determine that they are from Cyrodiil or High Rock. The same mystery remains the one who hired them and called to Skyrim to destroy the Companions, naturally because of this they have to hide from the authorities, and this gives the group a reason to engage in banditry. Fighters are divided into crossbowmen and swordsmen, commanded by trained captains. All of them are armed with the latest weapons and equipment, which have advantages in fighting monsters.
Alik'r Mercenaries -  Units of elite Hammerfell warriors who provide military services for the local nobility. Armed with scimitars and dressed in excellent armor. Many are veterans from the war against the Dominion. 
Blood Horkers - A gang of sea raiders whose base is on an island in the Sea of ​​Ghosts, are dressed in Nordic warmed armor.
Black Blood Pirates - dressed in leather-clad armor, protected from dampness and humidity of the marine climate.

Armor of the Iron Hand can be acquired  by killing Hajvarr Iron-hand in White River Watch. The armor of the Stendarr knights is quite rare, unlike the sentinel hauberk, but you can get it from the Vigilant Tyranus or by killing the knight from the sentinel patrol, the armor of the Stendarr paladin is very rare, such armor is worn by Keeper Carcette and Tolan, from whose body it will be possible to remove this armor during Dawnguard questline.

The standard edition distrbutes the armors to the respective factions
The standalone edition adds the armors to "Totem Shore Island" (map marker in the images), but doesn't distribute the sets to the factions for better compatibility

The standard edition will conflict with other mods that affect the levelled lists of the factions listed above. The standalone will conflict with mods that edit the area where Totem island is.

Known Issues
As much as possible, start this mod one a new save. When loading from a non-new save, to the edited NPCs that you met earlier (Kematu, Carcette) will have standard equipment (haven't tested if "resetinventory" console command fixes this).

NordWarUA- Original Author of the mod (got his permission)
