>No Saber thread
Look into the beautiful green eyes of perfection.
This scene made me want to bully
Bullying Saber is illegal.
I thought you were used to it by now
Know me too well.

At least Arturia's shit might be good for something. The gauntlets and cuirass anyway, not those dumbass hip plates. The only thing Nero's metal boots are gonna do is slow her down
Her armor reminds me of Japanese cavalry armor, the hip plates anyway, which is odd because the rest of her armor looks like it's based off earlier European armor. But it's missing the chain armor underneath it, or it's under the dress.
Samurai calvary armor always looks like it has hip plates attached to some sort of joint, while Saber's plates seem like they're either attached to her belt or just bolted directly onto her dress. Can't imagine either is very good for mobility.
It's likely just takeuchi wanting to have her in a dress while still looking armored, saber got popular and at that point the design couldn't change. Though he probably wouldn't want to change it anyway
I can't really think of a type of armor that the plates would be based off, it'd probably be better to ask in an arms&armor thread on /tg/
>Though he probably wouldn't want to change it anyway
Yeah, considering Nero and Saber Lily, it's pretty clear he still doesn't give a fuck about what's practical. I'm surprised he got it right with Mordred. Must've been a fluke.
Nero's boots still bug me the most, though, they don't even work from a design standpoint since they're so out of place considering the rest of her getup
It's a bit better than saber's, maybe because she doesn't have a dress covering most of her armor so we can see it.
Take off the hip plates, remove the spikes, and add some armor to her forearm, though for all I know there could be chain armor there, and it would be more practical. I guess the shoulder armor is a bit big
Helmet would need a lot more changes though, it'd be better just to wear no helmet at that point just so you can have better vision, and her sword is a bit too much like a paddle to me.
mild interest in historical arms and armor has pretty much ruined fantasy equipment for me though. Now all I look for when I see armor is weak points or impractical parts.
I actualy kinda like Siegfrieds equipment outside of the giant shoulder plates
I think the bigger problem is Rodin doesn't have time for hanky panky. He's either running his bar or turning whatever angel or demon record Bayonetta brings in into a weapon.
The eye slits in that helmet don't seem terribly smaller than some other medieval helmets.
Her greaves end in fucking high heels though. I never noticed that before but god damn.
