---> presented by DVAted <---

Description:

This mod pack provides players a new armor and weapon set based on the model of the Sabre Cat animal in Skyrim.

Inspired by the Stormcloak's Officer Armor set, this mod uses vanilla assets to recreate an outfit suitable for those of you who like to stalk the prairies, woods and mountains of Tamriel in the skin of a sabre cat hunter.

The start of this mod ignited from the idea of modifying the bear helmet of the Stormcloak's Officer Armor set to have large teeth to guard the face and look bad-♥♥♥. That idea brought the image of the Sabre cat's teeth to mind, and then evolved to the idea of using the actual sabre cat's head like a hunter's trophy hat or helmet.
This mod(dest) request quickly materialized into 3 model candidates for the imagined part, but all versions were so cool that they simply had to be included together:

1. the Mane - modelled by OG-Jay and rigged+imported by LordOfWar - the largest model of the 3 variations, features a large mane-like hoodie going down on the shoulders, has straight/upwards ears and no lower-jaw.
2. the Predator - modeled, rigged and imported by LordOfWar - is the lighter version, but just as killer - and it features a thinner/shorter mane, as it doesn't cover the shoulders entirely, but the special thing about it is that its' ears are drawn back, as if in full attack mode. Also no lower-jaw.
3. the Hunter - modelled, rigged and imported by Targaryen - is tightly-fit around the neck, has straight up-wards ears, and features an awesome lower-jaw to it, to give off a full ninja mask/helmet vibe that most of you will like.

In our opinion they are all unique and amazing in their own way, and we urge you to try each one before deciding what your favorite is.
All helmets were custom fitted for each race (including Orc, Khajiit and Argonian) and gender (whichever you prefer to play with).

Great mod, amazing designs. only problems i could find was that the shields don't appear in the crafting menu, and i couldn't find the ancient nord re-texture, other then that, the arrows were dreadic textured and not the sabre cat design as shown. still a great mod though with very creative designs, it would be great if those few problems could be fixed. Thanks!
