Description
**The first automatic open/closing helmet mod in all of Skyrim! See below!**

'Vanguard Armor' is a lore friendly, stand alone, heavy set for both males and females. The vanguard of an army are the first soldiers in line. They take the brunt of the the enemy's assault and live to tell the tale.

=====================
ll - Detailed Description - ll
=====================
This armor focuses on the look of a well equipped, veteran front line trooper from the North. The set has a rugged Nordic feel yet also a touch of knightly nobility though the use of heavy beaten platemail, colored leather, and robe elements.

This set has a helmet that opens and closes it's visor automatically! When you enter combat stance, you lower your visor for protection in battle. When you aren't fighting, you raise your visor for better visibility (and to see your character's face!). For this to happen, you do need both the open and closed helmets in your inventory. It's the first helmet of it's kind in all of Skyrim modding - marvel in it's majesty and thank the extremely talented mitchalek for his script work that made this new level of immersion a reality!

When uninstalling the automatic helmet version, first open the console, type "StopQuest VanguardArmor" and hit enter. Now uninstall. Simplicity itself.

The pieces are Steel Plate quality in armor value and weight. Powerful enough to use at any stage of the game, and appropriate to it's material. No god-mode items here folks, this is a lore friendly set.

The armor set requires the "Advanced Armors" perk to craft, and has equivalent crafting material requirements to Steel Plate armor.

This armor is heavy only. It was crafted individually for males and females. Works well on all sizes of characters. The helmet does not currently work on beast races (Orc, Cats, Lizards), but the set looks great with a circlet, fur hood, or no helmet as well for those races.

Feedback on the armor should be left in the comments section. I will read all the comments made and consider requests for alterations and potential fixes.

where do i go to get the armor? i have it installed on both the nexus and steam and i have tryed both but i can't find it anywhere, i would asume the quest is somewhere in markarth or falkreath but i can't find it, i have gone through all of skyrim and uninstalled all of my mods but this one to see if one of my mods was messing it up but i can't find it, please help me. (please excuse my grammar i am russian and don't know much english)

Is there a command to spawn it in, rather then doing all the work in order to get the armor

every time i equip the closed helmet it says in the top left corner that i had the vanguard helmet (closed) removed and vanguard helmet (open) added.
