***I have officially retired from modding Skyrim***
Well that's a half truth, I will no longer creating any new content, but since I since I'm very
much a user of mods I'll be on the nexus for years to come, so I'll
still be managing my mod pages

Claymore Gear: Arms and Armor for CBBE

By BlaqK Horizon (AKA Dahkar on the Nexus)


So what is this mod and what does it do. " Claymore Gear: Arms and Armor for CBBE " is the Sibling mod to my "Claymore equipment" for Oblivion (
This mod adds armor and weapons based on those used by the Claymore warriors form Yagi Norihiro's manga "Claymore" to the world of skyrim.

My main goal though has been to create a set of gear that meshes well with skyrim and while still staying mostly true to the source material they're based on. So what do I mean by that. To begin with my "Claymore" great swords will be the same size as other greatswords in the game. I know the swords are larger in the manga, so don't ask for extremely long meshes. For the metal parts of the armor I've added a little bit of nord flare, something similar to whats seen on the vanilla steel armor.


Q: will "Claymore Gear" armor portion require a body replacer?

A: This Armor was made for CBBE, but will work with the vanilla and unp based bodies.

Q: Does this mod support CBBE body Slider?

A: Yes indeed, just avoid the extremes as the armor won't look as good.
If you don't know what Caliente's bodyslide is check it out, it pretty cool

Q: Where can I find the Armor and weapons, and how strong will they be?

A: The armor and weapons will both be able to be made at the forge. There are two different tiers of strength. The lower tier armor with have stats similar to hide armor while the lower tier sword will be similar to stats of the iron great sword.

The upper tier weapons and armor will require the advance armor smithing perk and the stats are between scale and glass armor and between orcish and ebony great sword ( these stats are not set in stone, my goal is to make these items useful be not over powered, that's what daedric and dragon bone items are for).

Q: Is this armor be heavy or light.

A: It's light armor by default, if you want heavy armor install the optional file

Q: Can you make the armor or sword of my favorite character from the series.

A: Nope, too much work. Would like to add some options besides Miria symbol down the road.

Q: will this mod clash with other mods

A: it shouldn't as it only adds new and unique items to blacksmith forge. Maybe a mod the overhauls smithing could, but I don't see how. If for some reason it clashes with another mod try adjusting your load order.

Q: will you support UNP body

A: sorry but I won't be. Just use Bodyslide to imitate body shape.

Q: your name is Dahkar, but mod says Blaqk Horizon's?
A: Dahkar is an old name username I used to go by, and If I could change it I would. I been using Blaqk Horizon
    as my preferred name for many years now.

Q: Can I upload the mod to other sites

A: NO, no and no

Q: will you be uploading to steam workshop

A: I have no plans at the moment, maybe one day

Q. will you be adding any short quest to go along with this mod

A: No I will not be.

Q:Will this mod work with Skyrim SE?

A:It should in theory, but can't guarantee it. The special edition uses a newer version of the .nif file(3d model)
   and is more restrictive with types of .dds (texture file) compression that are usable. So it might work fine or there could
   be some issues with textures or the game could just randomly crash( bethesda's Creation Game Engine can be quite temperamental 
   in comparison to the old Gamebryo Game Engine used for obilivion, fallout and such)


You can not use any assets from this mod for your mods with out my permission.
With that said, don't be afraid to message me I'm open to Ideas


Caliente and team for creating the CBBE body and Outfit Studio which makes
conversions quick and easy

Nightasty, without has ground item tutorial I'ld probably would had to use a vanilla gound mesh.

Miax for his wonderful fallout normal map tutorial

Weapon and armor designs in this mod are visually based off of Yagi Norihiro's manga "Claymore"
