Description
Adds 2 chainmail armor sets to the game. There is a heavy and light version (Chainmail Hauberk and Chain Shirt respectively), as well as Light and Heavy Coifs with Helms (based off guard helms), Mail Backed Gauntlets (based off the clothing gloves), and Mail Boots (based off the fine boots) which have the stats of Steel Plate/Scaled but are slightly lighter. They're retextures of existing models, the Emperor's outfit and one of the generic 'clothes'.

CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE FROM CRAFTING, THEY REQUIRE THE ADVANCED ARMORS PERK.
***************************************************************************************************************************

Before you go prattling on about how the armor values for the hauberk are unrealistic, I made it have those stats for 2 reasons:
- (Fairly) easily attainable by a lower level character
- Still quite a strong armor type, so it is useable by even higher level characters without it becoming completely redundant or a liability.

I'm not all too happy with how the female versions turned out, so if you have any suggestions about what I could retexture instead that would be great.

Now there are a few issues at present -
There's minor issues with the female model - for some reason there's a small break between the neck and body, no idea what caused this since I simply retextured onto an existing Bethesda model. If you've any idea how to fix this let me know.
The male hauberk's sleeves will clip with just about any hand items you use. I've added mail mittens/boots to remedy this.
The inventory/world texture for the hauberk is pretty screwed up, don't know what caused this. The worn model is still fine.

Thanks to many of the subscribers for their suggestions and such, keep them coming and you'll probably see it in a future update!

Looks good, but i miss some chainmail hood. Don´t you plan to create some pleas?

my only issue is that the light armor version is very plain and odd looking, i think the shirt's not long enough.

one of my very favorite armor mods out there. i wish there were more... realistic chain armor sets out there like this one. Very befitting for a Jarl's war equipment if you ask me.

I think the armour ratings are pretty well right on, realistically speaking. Historically speaking maille and scale were fairly similar in protection, with the heavier versions of the maille being, in some respects (but not all) better than plate. I look forward to trying these out.

The chain hauberk is crazy wicked! Nice job! The light armor version needs....something. I think if you put the fur colar around the light chain shirt (like you did with the hauberk) and go with dark brown on the legs then that would make the light chain shirt pop!

I enjoy your mods, but this is my favorite. Nice work.
