Its nice, although i would like it better if there was "less"...i'm of a "sober" approach, especially when its comes to vikings...less colors, more dirty would be better, to my taste anyways.
i never like flashy characters.
But its nothing that cannot be arranged with some good old dyes

Yea, I like this, but definitely less feathers.
I think the shield hits it right, but the armor/feather look just doesnt feel "Viking" to me at all. Too soft. Vikings are not soft. Sharp, hard scraps should be the feel. Metals, bones, etc.
Fur, definitely FUR. Fur cloak, replace the feathers with fur. Wolf/Bear fur.
Could just be the artwork, but less clothy feel on the rest of the pieces. More sealskin /leather like.
The model in general though? Awesome. Just really the armor that I have complaints with. I am a diehard Midgard fan :P

I don't dig the feathers much either. The only bird I can see mids connected to are ravens and they damn sure wouldn't kill Odin's pets to wear on armor. Still looks good, I just don't think it fits vikings very well. Bones and fur would be a better path.
At the same time, after an apocolyptic event maybe religion has gone out the window or spite for the gods so then raven feathers would be more fitting.

and i agree with previous posters...less feathers more furs
Originally posted by Krullen Looks more like dragon scales then feathers. Make more sense being that too.
Actually thats a real good point. I have to agree with this. Especially since dragon's spewed out of the piercing or something. If they are hunting dragons, dragon's scales would make a lot of sense.
In the model (and the artwork) the shoulders defenitely look like long black feathers.
The rest, could be dragonscale. The light green / blue near the bottom of the .. Cloak? look like much smaller scales, to neat and precise imo.
I don't want to say "COLOR BAD STAHP", but I think vikings are going to have a bit less color. The dragons may have multiple colors, but I would think that the dragons that would prefer the climate of the vikings would probably be grey, white, or some such. So if they are scales, altering their color, or if sticking with the same color, making it more weather worn, beaten up (battle damaged! heh), cracked, scarred, etc.
But yea, even with the scales, remove the long black feathers, use fur for the top of the cloak (around the shoulders) and make the scales a bit more worn/weathered, and I think we might have a decent compromise.
Way too cartoonish for me, better then TDD(that look just stupid) but too much feathers, too much useless "fashion statement" type stuff. Less is more please..

I could very well be wrong, but that looks kinda like one of the models from MoO.

Exactly what I felt about the garb.
comparing the two races so far I like the TTD except lose the facentlers.
its just the Viking look is too far out of nnorms at too many decorative layers
Originally posted by Father_Jack This is a very goreous design and model, but it doesn't read as viking at all. It feels very high fashion runway. I get more of a steeps/mongol vibe off it. Personally I'd rather see a more grounded practical feel with more scandi flavor to it.

I think the piece of concept art that has the 3 different viking figures is pretty awesome. Would love to see those modeled in 3d.
What we all have to remember is this is just an early prototype. Its one rendering out of probably dozens of concepts, so I wouldn't get to bent out of shape just yet.
