Variag Cataphract by Merlkir Variag Cataphract by Merlkir
A VERY early variag cataphract idea. Rest of the team didn't like it, because he didn't seem very evil to them. Well...what can I do. It was quite historical-like..

His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is... where he came from. And if he was really evil at heart. What lies or threats led him on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed there... in peace. War will make corpses of us all.

Nice. Very believable, looks like something that has existed and was created to work rather then something (ala wow) created to look completely ludicrous.

Nonsense to look evil you just have to choose the wright color patern.

well, true. But he also seemed too "western" to them.

yeah, seems rather like the late saracens when they were picking up the western idea of heavy cavalry and armour.
still, very awesome pic :) especially the gambeson over mail, though with a few stylistic tweaks he could be an even better Rohirrim :P

yeah, I'll be working on the Rohirrim soon and I think I'll use something similar for a few units.

I like it. There's a nice touch of quality to the armor and the design. The elongated nasal piece on the helmet is a cool touch.
