Ornate-looking heavy armor set, best for thin human character models.

I was trying to work with a few themes here. The first, that all pieces of armor needed to have both a cloth surface (which is really quite difficult for heavy armor) as well as a metallic one (specifically something with a bit of sheen if possible). The second being that each piece of armor should have an ornate looking pattern if possible. This pattern is easily seen on the primeval warplate, the banded gloves, the carapace tassets, and the pit fighter shoulder guard (as well as on any piece of antique weaponry). The helmet does have an ornate pattern on the cloth draped around the back, though it is hard to see, particularly if you aren't using the crimson lion dye. I couldnt find a set of boots that satisfied both the requirements of cloth+metal and the pattern, so I deemed the pattern unnecessary in this case.

I chose to use red dye over other colors because I thought it was particularly appealing aesthetically with the golden/brown of the antique bronze dye. I've tested several others though, and I also like yellow, and green as replacements

I really like the armor composition, it looks soooo fancy and yet more or less realistic. You deserve gold.
