About this mod

Changes the way how shield is held to the open ward stance when your char is not blocking

Permissions and credits
This mod changes your character's (and NPC's) idle shield stance to the 'open ward' stance well known among HEMA hobbyists.

It currently includes changes to animations in the following animation slots:

1hm_idle
1hm_runforward
1hm_runbackward
1hm_turnleft60
1hm_turnleft180
1hm_turnright60
1hm_turnright180

More is coming underway but will take time.

The animations may still need fine tweaking. Feedback and suggestions are welcome.
Due to work and other commitments i'm no longer able to continue working on this mod. I'm also not skilled enough to work around Skyrim's engine limitation so this mod likely will not receive updates within the next 5 years. I hope other modders can take my ideas into consideration and make more realistic animation mods for the community.
