About this mod

Four types of low fantasy Viking style armour. Plus Viking Warrior Comp that adds weapons of various levels.

Permissions and credits
Version 0.6 of the Viking armour compilation is now available and I finally got round to adding the armour to the levelled lists. So
far in my tests the Vikingr armour is appearing on bandits and other random spawns.

This will probably be the last version of this mod so I hope it is enjoyed by all those looking for a little more authentic Viking experience in Skyrim.

Viking Warrior Compilation.ESP released with new Viking weapons!

This must be used with The Chronicles of Steel Skyrim mod.

The aim of this mod is to allow the player to create more authentic/better looking (low fantasy) Viking characters and are not interested in taking advantage of all the heavy armour perks (you should be able to reach the cap through smithing anyway).

This mod is not complete and please let me know if there are any suggestions (including other mods that would improve the compilation), issues or amendements.

Iron smithing - Raider Helm (iron)
Steel Smithing - Vikingr Brynja (body only), Vikingr Helm (Steel)
Advanced armours - Hauscarls Hauberk (misc), Hauscarls Helm (steel) and light Scale armour (misc)
Glass Smithing required but in Msic catagory - Thanes Armour (Steel) and Thanes Helm (Steel)
Dragon smithing - Jarls Armour (Dragon)

Planned for later versions:
Apply mail texture to female Jarls Armour.

I recommend using Cloaks of Skyrim mod and The Chronicles of Steel Skyrim weapons mod with this compilation as they go really well with the armour.

Standalone Vendel Helmet from Hammerwing studios can be found here:

PLEASE NOTE:

Viking Warrior Compilation.ESP requires all the files from the Viking Armour Comp and for The Chronicles of Steel Skyrim weapons mod to be downloaded and installed separately. It can be found here:

http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/12506

It includes changes to vanilla items and does replace their Meshes and textures so may conflict with mods that do the same:

Iron Axe – Meshes and Texture changed to old Bearded Axe form TCOSS.
Steel Axe - Meshes and Texture changed to Worn Bearded Axe form TCOSS.
Steel BattleAxe - Meshes and Texture changed to Worn 2 HD Bearded Axe form TCOSS.
Steel sword - Meshes and Texture changed to GRAR for TCOSS.
Ancient Nord Sword - Meshes and Texture changed to WARP for TCOSS.

Armour Meshes and Textures replaced:

Iron Armour - Meshes and Texture changed to the same as Vikingr mail.
Steel Armour - Meshes and Texture changed to the same as Thanes mail.

Weapons Added:
Hauscarls Sword – uses the Meshes and Texture of NORLAND sword for TCOSS.
Hauscarls Axe – uses Meshes and Texture of Bearded Axe form TCOSS.
Hauscarls BattleAxe – uses Meshes and Texture of 2 HD Bearded Axe form TCOSS.
Hauscarls Bow – uses Meshes and Texture of Nord bow form TCOSS.


Thanes Sword – uses the Meshes and Texture of GOTLAND sword for TCOSS.
Thanes Axe – uses Meshes and Texture of Bearded Axe fine form TCOSS.
Thanes Greatsword – uses Meshes and Texture of 2 HD GOTLAND Sword form TCOSS.
Thanes Bow – uses Meshes and Texture of Nord bow fine form TCOSS.

Jarls Sword - uses the Meshes and Texture of NEAGLING sword for TCOSS.
A two handed weapon for Jarls category still to be added in due course.

These can all be crafted at the forge and require the same smithing perk tree as the appropriate level armour.

You must install TCOSS mod for these weapons to work but if you want to use only these and not the other TCOSS weapons as they are not scaled with the other items in the mod then uncheck the TCOSS.esp plugin.

I am currently playing with TRO basic needs (a mod I heartily recommend) so I have also adjusted some of the food recipes by removing the need for Salt pile to cook the Rabbit haunch, Chicken breast, Pheasant breast and Salmon as these are light snacks and really don't need salt to be made edible in real life (only better tasting).

If you are experiencing CTD's with this mod I recommend you download BOSS at http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/6 and amend you load order as advised.
