[COLOR=SeaGreen]I don't know about everyone else, but I've wanted armor that ressmbles that of Spartan armor and weapons for the past 6 months now that the move "300" is coming out it makes me want it even more, I personaly dont have that many skills at Modding. If there is someone out there that would be willing to create this "Spartan Armor" for me and the rest of the Oblivion Community, that would be much appreciated:([/COLOR]

Wait, do you mean Spartan equipment from Halo? If so, it has been done. It is one TESSource. If you are talking about the Greek city state kind of spartan, then I do not yet know. And what is "move 300?" And welcome to filefront forums.

The Movie 300 is about the battle of Thermopylae, which is were 300 Spartans Stood again the might of the Persain army, which some Schollars cay may have been up to 2,000,000. Which Again would show a great reason for the want of Spartan armor and or weapons and equipment

yeah yeah we know that. but uh... the spartan's really aren't wearing ANYTHING in that movie. look at the trailers, all they have are those helmets and... loincloths and capes. easily created with the imperial horse legion helm + no clothes + a cape from OOO.

Well actually if you were wealthy enough you could buy an armor set in most city-states. And the Spartans wore red, so that when they were bleeding blood would not show, which could lower morale of other troops. The soldiers carried shields with an upside down "V." Something I have learned, is that movies done about the ancient greeks or in movies with ancient greeks, armor is always depicted incorrectly. Usually it was not the armor that was red though, usually cloth in the places in between.

yes but the Helm from the Imperial's isn't correct for spartan of greek armor 1. because its not Gold and 2. because the face gaurd isant the right shape and the upsidedown V is another thing that would be hard for me to make seeing ass all i know how to do is script. but yes i am aware that they wore red and they did wear armor the just did not depict it in the movie 300 to make the spartans look even more "BA"

Well, I've tried a "Greek" helmet using a recolored Imperial Horseman Helm and they are just too large. They do not fit. Plus- they have all those bumps that look like screws. Greek Helms were smooth, and beautiful. Greek Helms are some of the best works of art the world has seen. ;D
