Hello,
I've recently redone my guardian (http://gw2style.com/look.php?id=12835) so here I present you the Hell Knight.

When I used to go through the wardrobe in bank and try some random combinations, I've always thought that the heavy carapace chest and hero triumphant legs match perfectly and was frustrated that we weren't able to unlock it. Finaly I got a chance, so the 1st hero triumphant skin I unlocked was the heavy legs :)

At the same time, the foefire mantle came to gemstore, so I ended up combining those 3 pieces. Draconic helmet was chosen because of the horns. Gloves and boots seemed like the best matching options.

From all the dye combination I tried, I selected red/silver combination, which led to using Twilight and Bloodstone staff.

At the end I changed my character's skin tone and eyes color to magnify the demonic appearance.

Taking pictures was a drag because of the aegis. I tried to take some combat pics too, but they didn't end up well, so I gave up and settled with the posing pics :D Most of them are from Bloodstone Fen - that seems like the most "hellish" enviroment to me. But I added several from different locations too to show the armor in different lightning.

I hope you like it, let me know your thoughts :)

The way the red and purple flow into each other on the main screen is amazing!
Overall this is a really good look, the armour looks like something that could be meta, but it´s still very tasteful and unique
The headpiece, shoulders and red eyes look super creepy together and totally set the tone for the overall look
Presentation is flawless and every little detail is spot in, well done!

I think the new legendary torch would fit great to those shoulders.

I like the dyes, they look soft and matches with Twilight as you explain in the description.
I know how frustrating is the Aegis when taking screenshots :/
Very good armor combination, I always thought these leggings would work for some looks.

Nice screenshots, just missed one more from behind maybe :)

Very good presentation!

You're right, it would fit, but I'm probably not going for it, because I don't like the skin that much.

Your Hell Knight has an undeniable visual impact that I'm gladly giving out my Gold. Here, you have it!

However, compared to your last look Flame for Hire, this one suffers an apparent thematic disconnection.The helm, shoulders and gloves combo is your star point. While the Chest and Leggings look great together, the Carapace Chest is too ornate and religious (the cross) for your theme, and a bit festive with your color of choice. The blackest sheep of them all are the boots. They are too neat and lack the grit necessary to elevate the whole look. All in all, I find your outfit has a great potential to be truly original.

P.S. Your 4th screenshot (not counting the main one) best represents your outfit theme and mood.

Man. thats a sick look. And the screens add a lot to the over all feel!
Very epic job ^^)

Great look to match Twilight! I think your screens could be a little more dynamic instead of being the same poses in different places, though. Action shots would be pretty great. (Twilight's VFX are so cool...)

I get your point and I agree that it's not the common interpretation of demon - spiky torn clothes etc. I have a blury image in my mind of a dark or demon knight that I saw somewhere (probably in different game or anime) and its style is very similar to one I made, but i can't remember exactly. It's actually bugging me for some time :)
I'm aware of the cross and my thoughts about it were that it could simply signify the reversed cross, like the demons in hell had their own religion worshiping the devil. That idea came from Beelzebub anime :D

Yep, you're absolutelly right. I don't know why, but I'm just incapable taking good combat screens with guardian. I tried this time and the last time with "Snow storm" and the time before that with "Elvish guard" but it ends terribly for some reason :D Generally I have problems with that but with guard it's even harder. I'll try again next time :)

That combination of helmet, chest, legplates and shoulders is to die for! I love how it's a deep intense red and particularly the tassles/ribbons? on the shoulders and the legplates. To be honest I think the cross looks more like an ankh with the circle above it... Anyway gold from me for a lovely look!
