The Argonians of Skyrim

Postby Arokhs Twin » Sat Jan 25, 2014 5:45 pm

I bought Skyrim a couple of years ago but never really put much time into it so due to the xmas holidays and being on long term sick I thought I'd give it a go. I've put about 166 hours into it and currently have a level 40 Argonian. I think this race is pretty cool and a good all rounder if you are a fan of the Elder Scrolls games. The latest incarnation of them in Skyrim looks great and there's a lot of customisation to make each one unique and if you have the PC version a lot of mods too. They kinda look like 'dragon men' but in the game's universe they actually descended from sentinent trees?!

Most people go for Nords in Skyrim but I thought I'd try and be different. In Oblivion they kinda sucked but they are great this time round. Here's a link to my Steam online photos:-

My Argonian dressed in Carved Nordic Armour which I think is one of the better looking armours in the game.

Here's an action shot where he looks truly menacing bad ass lizard.

If you want to look at the rest of the images just click on Adrian-smith31's screenshots at the top of the opened image.

I know Skyrim is a bit of an old game now but a lot of you have probably already played it. Please share with us your characters and screenshots and put some new life into this forum.
Btw if anyone is interested I'm using the 'Goddess ENB' graphics mod which make a vast improvement over the vanilla graphics.

I made this other character a few days ago modified from an earlier save game. I used him to do the 'evil' sidequests and the Thieves Guild questline and will be using him for the Dark Brotherhood too.

So here's my evil Argonian which I named 'slays-many-elves' based on a few examples I have seen on the web; its very difficult to make a good looking Argonian. The colours make all the difference. He's wearing custom made armour not available in the standard game; its called Argonian Mercenary Armor and can be downloaded from the steam workshop. I think I have outdone myself making him as badass looking as possible.

I have now made this guy, Slays-Many-Elves into a follower if anyone want's to give it a try. You can find it on Nexus Mods, Steam or just download it from my website below. To install simply extract to your skyrim's data folder.

He's a pretty brutal, bad-ass looking Argonian which I tried to make look as dragon like as possible (based on Arokh of course) without using any third party mods.

I have now made these two characters into presets for Skyrim which can be used for both a new game or an existing game. I have provided instructions on the steam community page for them which are easy to follow. They overwrite the first two presets but I think they are better looking than the game originals.

So if you want your Argonian to look like one of mine or want a great follower just head over to my steam page http://steamcommunity.com/id/adriansmit ... ppid=72850

Of course the armour is not included in the screenshots but these two Argonians are both pretty badass and tough looking especially the red tinted male named Slays-Many-Elves.

Here's a couple of mugshots of them:-

If you use the retail version of Skyrim or other non steam version my mods can also be downloaded from Nexusmods.
