Looking back at it after posting my favorite piece from that series, this is probably my least-favorite piece. The more adventurous Jedi a character is and the more cartoonish their source material, the more pauldroncore his interpretations get.

Even then though, this isn't all that bad because they're Jedi and can get away with wearing just pauldrons and aesthetic-only-maille for style points. And even then you have more down-to-earth Jedi like Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon wearing a decent amount of armor and even using shields, so the aggregate is less pauldroncore than I remember.

I really appreciate that it had a lot of flavour.

I like when the helmet is full-face, and there’s no exposed skin anywhere. To me, the idea of the helmet being the entire face of the knight is pretty cool. Kinda like the Mandalorian, or a series like Infinity blade where we don’t see faces.

Monsters and demons have facial features. But knights and heroes have them hidden, with the helmet itself being their identity. It makes them embody the concept of a faceless, great warrior, instead of a fallible human with a squishy face under the helm.

For better or for worse, yeah. A helmet that's their entire face, linked to their notoriety or accomplishments. I like protags where a cool helmet is their entire appearance. Goblin Slayer, Doomguy, Samus Aran, Master Chief, etc. The most iconic Dark Souls NPCs have a helmet instead of a face.

Bonus points if it's a troupe of jobber mercs with identical helmets, and the boss has a clearly upgraded version of their outfit, with a more detailed helm and colored cloth on their armour.

There was actually an online lecture on Aztec featherwork (speffically of shields) a few weeks ago, if either of you are interested I can post it

>Incidentally, those gold and silver gilt jackets make me think of something like scales, worn where the Europeans would wear mail.
Well, it's hard to say how comparable it is for sure, since again, that one line is the only reference to it I know of. There's a speculative reconstruction of it here: https://twitter.com/ohs688/status/1345229077007851520 , though I'm personally wondering if perhaps there's some mistranslation going on simply due to there being no other contexts where Metal armor is mentioned or depicted, but OHS688 and Rafael Mena there are as/more educated then I am, so eh

As far as the jackets/tunic in the image I posted in >>77716738 that that cyan underline points to, those are Ehuatl (see also pic, this being the famous poet-engineeer-king of Texcoco Nezalhualcoyotl) It's basically the same concept of the Tlahuiztli full-body warsuits (thick cotton base with feather mosiac over it; both would have been worn over ichcahuipilli) just in a tunic or vest form rather then a full body suit, often with a skirt of leather strips and/or feathers (like greek/roman skirt armor) and often fancy regalia, as for the Mexica at least Ehuatl was largerly limited to royalty and very high officer/general roles (other Nahuas, or at least the Tlaxcalteca, used it more liberally)

>Mexica
Much of what you see in the image there would apply to other Nahua groups too, not just the Mexica speffically, mind you; if not Mesoamerican civillizations as a whole in a looser sense (for example, the Mixtec also had the Ichcahuipilli vests/tunics (the magenta underline in that image), just with vertical rather then cross stitching, though they only used full body animal themed warsuits in ritualistic rather then martial contexts, along with some (also very colorful) Mixtec specific armor and banners)

I have allot of favorites I cant decide between. Each is best in their own context. I prefer historical armours but I dont mind more fantasy flairs.

I tend to like:
-Crusader era full mail, great helm and surcoat
-Late medieval full plate
-Classical greek hoplite with corinthian helm
-Imperial roman heavy Lorica
-Late roman/byzantine heavy armor (esp cataphracts)
-Sengoku jidai samurai armor (and warrior monks)

I also have a soft spot for tolkein dwarf style armor and generic female fantasy 'dress' armor.

Based. Jap weapon designs look cooler than they are effective.

Hell, even the kicks in Karate were from a french martial art called Savate. Aikido is mostly bullshido but kendo has been a bit lore effective (but has shown a lot of losses to fat Hema nerds).

That strange but very fun "supernatural tactical," is really nice. Valorant leans in that direction, and other tabletop stuff like Delta Green leans toward it as well. The hammier it is depends kind of on your GM/writer, but it's super neat that aesthetic can support both self-serious and the semi-serious stuff you can get out of Metal Gear.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s a bizarre trainwreck of a game. Some parts are great, like the armor and setting, they clearly put a ton of work into some stuff.
But the main quest is a joke, really really awful even by the series’ standards, and the sidequests are like... just... you have to see it to believe it, I can’t describe how low-effort they are.
