"A Rogue Trader is a combination of freelance explorer, conquistador and merchant. They are servants of the Order of Whispers , given a ship, a crew, a contingent of mercenaries and are free to explore the vastness of the seas."

Hello guys,
This is my Engineers latest look.Originally I wanted to create a Musketeer look but instead ended up with this, I thought when I slapped the privateers cap on this it would achieve the look but the utterly fucked up textures on the Triumphant chest had other plans. Upon recovering my sanity back I settled for a black-red color combo as they are easy to make and go well together since time immemorial, and then I was pleasantly surprised with a Triumphant chest that looked rather damned good. Being exhausted with the whole Musketeer thing I dropped it (or rather the damned chest piece decided so) for a more rouge-like look due to the dark leatherish colors that did translate some of the 17th century feel on the armor. To say that I am satisfied with the final result of this look rather would be monumental understatement. I feel this looks rather unique , and I hope I paved the way for anyone trying to make some sort of realistic type of medium armor. Also originally Bladed Boots were used with this look, overall they look nice but I just couldn't find a fitting dye that would match with the rest of the armor (it did give a very fantasyish vibe to the look thou).
With the armor finished finding matching weapons was pretty easy to, the final combo reminded me more of some sort of lord,merchant or baron and then I thought why not make a hybrid of the three, and make a Rouge Trader; as the color combination and weapons really matched the Order of Whispers I figured a Rouge Trader would be some sort of independent extension of the organisation.
For those of you who are curious I used the Mahongany dye to match the the hair with those infernal beard textures.

Any feedback or criticism is always welcome, it's what helps me improve which in return bring you better looks. With all that said I hope you guys enjoy this look !

He is sooooo coool!
Your character has so much personality. He looks tough and mysterious, but still like one could trust him :)
The armor makes him look like a agent-bandit-pirate kinda thing, don't know, all at once somehow^^ Also he has the cyber element with the engi thingie flying around him and the rifle.
Armor combo and dyes are on spot and your screens are just awesome, they create so much atmosphere.
I'm in love :)
GOLD!!!

I like the "Rough" look he has =) The Stalwart Shoulders are going pretty well with the Triumphant Brigandine. Well Done!

Everything just looks awesome and fits to well! (except for the hammer, i don't like that skin, but that's just my opinion :p).
I love your choice of armor pieces and also the way you dyed them, especially the Triumphant Brigandine looks great. I've sometimes seen it on female chars but it didn't look as cool as it does on your char :D
Your screens are just amazing and fit to the theme of your look.
So everything is just perfect and gold from me!

Entropy doesn't really fit in with the rest, also I think another (more realistic) glider would fit him a lot better.
Other than that, this upload is looking flawless to me. armor mix is great, dyes are spot on and presentation is amazing :D
Well deserved gold ^^

Hmm you got a point about the hammer and glider. My initial idea was that the rouge trader came upon an artifact (hence why the colors don't need to necessarily match) which gave him some form of powers, in this case the bat-wings.
Tyvm for your feedback and kind words !

Really like the whole look ^^
He does feel like a real character with the beard and everything
The armour comb is really neat, a good mixture that combines a lot of the most good-looking medium armor pieces!
I like the overall dye scheme, the only thing where I could get nitpicky is the pants as they feel a bit too uni coloured to me in comparison to the other pieces, but that´s just about it actually
Still doesn´t delude from the fact that this is a very succesfull mix and a great overall upload! The screens are great and your story is well thought through
I agree about the hammer, but since all your other weapons are spot on I don´t really mind
Gold ^^

This is a really solid outfit. Like, even excluding the theme, it looks like a really well-rounded set of armor. The armor mix is compatible, the dyes are bold but tasteful.

I just really like this. Great work!

Really nice look. I know those boots weren't your first choice but I'm glad to see someone else also chose to use them with that chest piece. I also used the same pieces for my human male. [http://i.imgur.com/GWIuQnK.png]

The armor looks very cohesive. The studs on the shoulders match the studs on the end of the chest piece which also somewhat match the studs on the gloves. I also like how decorated the armor looks. There's just enough details to suggest a noble air, but not so much that the armor doesn't lose its practicality. The eye patch and disheveled hair and beard were a nice touch. It gives him a real rugged and experienced aesthetic that supports your story. A story that is also very nicely supported by your screens.

I can just imagine what's going on. He hears some stories in Lion's Arch about a shipwreck with some magical treasure. He then reports back to the Order where they send him on a mission to get any treasure left on that ship. Then a few shots of mission prep and intelligence gathering to find out where he'll go. Afterwards a trip to the docks to grab a ship. Then stepping off after his voyage. Finally, he reaches his final destination. Treasure at last. The only part of your story that feels a bit off to me are his glider/wings. Even after taking into account the powers he gained from that magical hammer, I agree with Roamin that a more classical glider would be more fitting.

The dyes were a good choice. As you said its hard to go wrong with red and black. The only nitpicks I have about the dyes are: the metallic portion near his neck and the metal on his boots. The metal near his neck is dyed a bronze/green and its a bit detracting from the rest of the dye scheme. I do realize that you chose that color because it shares a dye slot with the color on his belt however, I think using Oxblood on the fourth dye slot of the chest piece would provide a nice red color for both the belt and the metallic portion "neck piece". As for the metal on the boots, I think instead of using Murky Grey you should use Dry Silver so you can continue the theme of dyeing the metallic portions of your armor that color.

Ultimately, this is a really nice look with an excellent armor combination and original theme that's very nicely supported by your screens and story.

Thank you Ursaring for writing such a comprehensive and honest post. I did change the dyes you suggested, the oxblood on the chest piece looks a bit orangeish so I left the part as it is, while on the boots you were spot on.I also fiddled around the classical glider a bit but I've still to find suiting dyes that go along with the rest of the look. Overall you had some very nice points all around.and I am very happy you enjoyed this look. Cheers !

Great minds think alike indeed ^^
I tried these boots and the gloves myself but it did not fit with what I wanted to do, but you knew well use them! Nice choice of backpack, weapons (except the hammer yea') and your screenshots look good too :]

This is a really great concept, excellently executed. I do think the hammer and the wings throw it off, and there is too much red on the boots. As red is an accent in the rest of the outfit, they seem to be a bit over powering. IK they prolly wouldn't dye the other way around, and the prospect of finding ones that would dye are limited. Gold

I really love this look! From the armor mix and colors to the screens, everything looks amazing! The face is very cool and the weapons you chose fit nicely ! (except for the hammer ofc but you already know that.. so sorry to mention it again ;P). I'm also not convinced by the wings as a glider in this look. I would choose the basic glider with a red dye maybe. This is just a detail anyway.
Amazing look and well deserved gold !
