About this mod

Mesh replacer for 39 of Skyrim's original axes and maces. Gives the weapons a longer and slimmer shape, while preserving their original style.

Permissions and credits
As of 2020-06-27, this mod is a part of Believable weapons. This page will receive no further updates and may eventually be taken down.

  • 39 reshaped battleaxes, maces and war axes. The new shapes apply to every instance of the original weapons in the game.
  • All models are optional. Include the ones you like and forget about the rest.
  • No in-game stat changes. Only the appearance is changed.
  • No texture changes. The reshaped models use the original textures, or whatever replacer textures you have installed.
  • No effect on save files. Install and uninstall as you like.
  • Little or no effect on performance. The new models have a vertex count comparable to the originals and use no additional textures or effects.

Install with a mod manager to conveniently select which models to include. Installing and uninstalling on existing save files is perfectly safe.

This mod is fully compatible with:
  • replacers for other weapon models
  • texture replacers
  • changes to the weapons' in-game stats
  • dual-sheath mods

If another mod changes the same weapon model, only the last one installed will take effect. Any other model will still work.

Some compatibility patches can be found under Miscellaneous files.
