Centurion | House Leo by L3monJuic3 Centurion | House Leo by L3monJuic3
The Centurions of House Leo serve as medium ranked front-line officers, and actively participate in combat. Centurions are drawn from both military academies as well as from veterans and distinguished footmen. They are expected to lead by example on the battle front, leading the charge and rallying those under their command. Centurion ranks are of varying degree, junior Centurions command fewer men than Veteran Centurions. Juniors move forward in the military ladder by showing exceptional tactical sense or bravery in combat.

Centurions are easily distinguished on the frontlines, wearing large cloaks with a fur collar, as well as having an imposing plume on their head. Centurion armor is similar to footmen armor, but include a gold trimming and more heavily armored vambraces. They also feature more decorative features, such as an aiguillette and various medals adorning the belt. Some Veteran Centurions wear older variants of armor that are quite rare. The armaments of a Centurion include the standard sword and shield, but a spear is available if they prefer it over the sword. Etched on to their shield is "Semper Avanti", 'Always in the front' or 'Ever forward', referring to their dual duties as warrior and officer.

That is an awesome and functional combination of roman aesthetics and medieval armor. They should have hired you for Elder Scrolls games, your stuff is better than the imperials in Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.

Not sure if that's your thing, but I think you could blend it more if the cuirass was modeled after polish hussar armor:

I THINK the segmented abdomen would be evocative of lorica segmentata, and the thorax discs could be some sort of removable phalerae that doubles as indication of rank.

Best way to do that is you give me a symbol of some kind to mark to put on the armor and i can reference it to you to those who ask, and then direct people to your account.
