Bambakion and Blue Gambeson over Mail Shirt are supposed to be used with helmets with long mail guards. However, female versions of the armors are thin and mail guards don't fit them well. If female versions of these two armors would be discarded, helmets would fit them better:

That's how females are going to look:

So, what do yo think about it?

I think females in general should be discarded from the battlefield.

 

Whatever works best for dawlish I guess...

It isn't hard to discard female versions of armors, it's much harder to make them. :)

Only issue I see is the mail from the helmet is sort of "floating" more from the body on the female versions

As a long time female I can say those new versions look a million times better.

Wouldn't it be easier to make seperate female versions of the helmets(if possible).

I'm surprised at the number of no votes, what's the main reasoning behind not wanting the change? Of course everyone is allowed their own vote but I just wondered.

 

Those armours, as Homer said, are designed to be used with Narf's coif. And in the female version the coif has huge gaps between the shoulders which makes it look really terrible, a more obvious screenshot of the gaps can be seen here -

If they were fixed to have the male shoulders the coif would fit perfectly and it would mean there are more nice armours for female characters to use, maybe we could even have more people playing a female char if there are a bigger variety of cool armours for them.

I think it would look even uglier with a female in a male body than some gaps/clipping, however that's just my personal preference.

also, this:

 

Wouldn't it be easier to make seperate female versions of the helmets(if possible).

It wouldn't be hard to make alternate helmet versions, would take me or someone more experienced max 15minutes.

 

edit:I just realised how many helmets actually uses that coif, would make things a bit harder.

Still though, I stand by my first point.

Well to me the body models are so androgynous that the body types do not look strange. Especially the blue gambeson being a fairly slim armour even on the male characters, any irregularities could be easily put down to padding the armour, whereas with the chain coif floating a few inches above the shoulders arguably looks much more strange that a bit of extra padding.
