Open Face Guard Helmets

Always wondered what the guard complaining about an Arrow in their knee looks like? Now you can find out! This mod changes all of the Guard Helms and Stormcloak Helmets to open face versions, so now you can see their pretty face!

If you like it, please support!


I had this idea for a while, to make open face guard helms. It's always bothered me that you couldn't see the face of the guards and I wanted to show off some personality to go with their classic lines, so here we are!

I will perhaps add more variations of the helmet, if/when I get a chance. Variations are a bit more involved, but when the time comes I'll add more. I was planning variations from the beginning, since it would be nice to have different versions of the helm dependent on the climate. A warmer climate would have someone suffer from wearing a closed helmet all the time; they would benefit more from this open version. Colder climates could have more bundled up kits...and stuff like that. This might be available in future versions if the community requests it.

Hope you enjoy!


1) A few guards are copy-pasta'd by Bethesda, can be a bit of an immersion breaker if you have a really keen eye, but this might be fixed in future versions or other mods by me.

This mod makes guards look even more stupid.

Thank you! I have been looking for a good guard helmet change. I like the look of the helmets, but the fact that you could never see the guards' face (or yours if you wore one) always bugged me.
can you add variations of the helmet and the vanilla instead of just replacing it with just that one?

Can you make a version that only shows the eyes?

ESSENTIAL if you don't want to feel like you're in a cult every time you're in a city.

Okay I ported this to SSE. Enjoy.

If there are any issues (there very well might be as I dont have an Xbox One to test) let me know.

Reggie if you port this to XB1 I'll love you lol. I've used this mod for years on PC and love it.
