Permissions and credits
This is my version of Croc's chailmail mod. This mod is not standalone, if you have Croc's mod and this one, whichever one is last in the load order will have it's armor ratings show. The OG mod is here:

I really liked Croc's mod but I found the armor was too powerful so I scaled mostly everything down using the creation kit. Here's the stats I used.

The light armor (Nordic Leather Jerkin, Nordic Byrnie, and Nordic Lamellar) have been scaled to Studded armor (22), Scaled armor (32), and Elven Gilded armor (35) respectively. Nordic Leather helmets and their Nasal equivalents are scaled to leather helmets (12), whereas Nordic helmets and their Nasal equivalents are scaled to Scaled helmets (14). Nordic Boots and Gauntlets are also scaled for Scaled boots and Gauntlets (9 each). I've also renamed Nordic Lamellar to be Nordic Byrnie Lamellar.

The heavy armors are thus: Nordic Hauberk is now equal to Dwarven Armor at 34 armor rating. Nordic Steel Lamellar has been renamed Nordic Hauberk Lamellar and is slightly less than steel plate at 38 armor rating. The Nordic Heavy helm and it's Nasal equivalent has been scaled to Steel helmets at 17 armor rating. The 2.0 version has Nordic Splinted Greaves and Bracers, both set at 12.

The beauty of this is that now heavy armor wearers can have a Nordic style armor up till steel plate, which makes sense IRL and in game terms. I hope this pleases you and the good people who download this mod.

Other mods to make you feel like a viking badass:

Matherian Viking Shields Set - - Historically accurate viking shields, that are also added to leveled lists. If that doesn't sell you, the author even spiced up The Bannered Mare with his shields!

JaySuS Swords - - A very popular mod, with plenty of content to craft or to find in Skyrim. The fine nordic ax really complements this build.

Increased Bounty Rewards - - Something about slaying dragons and bandits for your Jarl has a Beowulf like viking ring to it for me. Plus, more money!

MECRs Classic Nord Shields - - 250 plus viking shields for ultimate customization! Also added to leveled lists.

Raider Helmet - - From the author who gave us The Witcher 2 shields and armor pack comes a historically accurate, lore friendly, easy to craft helmet. Pound out a couple of these to make sure no one in Tamriel goes helmetless. As seen on Draugr!

The Chronicles of Steel - - Nordic weapons done right. Tons of content, leveled list support, but may conflict with JaySuS swords. I use them both with no hiccups, but I can't tell if both weapons sets are being used. Try for yourself!

Throwing Weapons - Death From Afar - - True vikings were notorious for their use of throwing weapons, but this mod has something for everyone. The only thing it's missing is Mjolnir! (speaking of Mjolnir, I was gonna list a link to a mod about thor's hammer, but there are many to choose from and I haven't tested any of them. Search for them and tell me what you think!)

Viking Spawn Axe - - The second you see this, you'll fall in love. Bring this one to vahalla/sovngarde with you.

Viking Spawn Shield - - It may look like a battered wooden shield, but those runes must have powerful magicks behind them because this baby has shielded me from just about everything Skyrim has to offer. A very high quality shield. How could you resist?

Zabs Black Knight Armor - -
"I command you, as King of the Britons, to stand aside!"
"I move... for no man."

Matys Medieval Knights - - The armor set on a whole may be set in more recent history, but combine the greathelm with this maille and you have yourself a crusader.

Templar Shields 1_02 - - If you prefer knighthood to vikinghood, try this on for size. Moralin also has a bunch of historically accurate weapon mods, that would all look great with chainmail. Just for the sake of space, I won't list them here, but seriously. Check 'em out.
