Heya, folks. I haven't found anything of this sort and was very much inspired by 'Dragonbone ebonsteel armor' mod (http://skyrim.nexusm...m/mods/24941//?) and come to an idea of another standalone armor that is simply a retexture with some extra detail. You can see how I imagine this armor by looking at the attached file. 
 

I personally think that Stalhrim armor that came out with Dragonborn DLC is rather bland and silly looking. On the other hand the good old fashioned stalhrim deserves more than that. That's why I think that mix betwen dragonplate meshes and stalhrim textures should be just perfect. Epic, cool looking. 

 

As said, I was inspired by the dragonbone ebonsteel armor, that's why I suggest ebony mail that covers body, ebony little details of armors and stalhrim.  No fur, no hides, original stalhrim already uses fur and stuff. So only metal and ice, yeah.

 

Current picture is rather harsh, but gives the idea. If someone would like to do it, I'll make a concept art for it, of course, with all the details, if someone will need it. But anyone who could do this can freely do anything with the idea. 

 

Thanks for your time. Hope you like the idea and this mod will become alive sometime soon. :smile:

I'd actually be very interested in this. Might even make it. I'll do some research.

 

I am, however, imagining a mash-up dragonbone/ebony/stalhrim, in that case, from the looks of it, the original Stalhrim armour still consists of other materials to keep it together. "Stalhrim Infused Dragonplate" would be fancy, I think. having the blue for details, I imagine cracks in the dragonbone (gotta be hard to work ancient bones) patched with glowing stalhrim and oh. Yes, now I'm excited!

That would be nice, indeed. Though bone textures should be a bit darker than vanilla, I think, to contrast with stalhrim.

 

 

But! I like the alternative that is just ebony plates with stalhrim attached to them with nails and other stuff, using dragonplate mesh. And chainmail hood. 

Just look, it will explain how I imagine it. With these plates stalhrim elements should stay on the armor.

 

Compare the pics with vanilla and Dreogan's mod. Pay attention to the shoulderpads.

I just stumbled onto this and would like to throw in my total support. Unfortunately, I can't do much about it as I have no idea how to make any kind of mod. However, I was wondering if anyone had gotten around to working on this. Any updates?
