About this mod

Lagertha of the Vikings! This face preset was inspired by the fiercely talented Katheryn Winnick and her role as Lagertha on the TV show Vikings.

Lagertha of the Vikings

*Note: Her expression is not like this in the preset, it's neutral. I did this for effect.

I was reworking an old character of mine (see my website here) and instead of doing an original face I decided to base her on Lagertha from Vikings! So when I finished the preset I thought I'd share with everyone. :) It's not perfect by any means, I'm still an amateur sculptor, but I thought some may like it and enjoy it.

She is made on the Breton race as that's the character I was designing her for, but she does work for any human race (colors might need to be reworked). I know she'd be great as a Nord!

Edit: I went back and checked up on the face preset when I have the Nord race set. It kept coming out wrong for me today so I resculpted the face to work on the Nord race. If it doesn't work, let me know. Nord version is in the file section labeled accordingly.

Also, her makeup and skin tone are done to the best of my abilities using my own monitor settings, ingame settings, and probably a different set of body and texture mods than you, dear user. I tried to follow the fact that she's pale with a yellow undertone and has a lot of light pink makeup on in the series (along with those smoldering eyes) so on some systems she might appear to have differently colored makeup, less makeup, more makeup, etc. The same goes for wrinkles. It's an easy fix in RaceMenu to change colors, I promise. Also, my game is set up for an ENB, but I took pictures in vanilla. Her poses are done in a late afternoon/early morning light, but I got the main photos in a neutral light.

I hope you enjoy! I would love screenshots, especially of the characters you make with this preset!

ALSO INCLUDED IS A FILE FOR LAGERTHA AS A FOLLOWER! She is a Nord and can be found in Jorrvaskr. A big thank you to HOVIHAR who made her! And a big THANK YOU to all the mod authors who allowed their assets to be used (see below for all credits)!

If there are any issues, please let me know ASAP and include pictures. Pictures are very helpful.

I have permissions from the authors I've used to create this preset (or permissions were granted on their mod pages). If you make something based on this preset and want to share it, I'd be happy to see it but you will still need permissions from the mods I've used linked above. If you are just making any fixes, let me know and I will host the file here so it's all in one place.
