I love Saber's armor. It's so sleek and beautiful. I especially love the how the tassets are just a dress. I think it's incredibly creative and beautiful.

Lilly and Alter are my favorites. Lilly because her armor is so flowing, and Alter for having such a dark take on Saber's outfit.

I really just love armor. Saber as a character was ok. Favorite girl in the series because i like knight girls. Never been into casters.

I'll flick out a few. One of my favorites here; when all the men go off to war, its only reasonable to conclude that some women find themselves in the local militia, maybe not too well armored or too well armed, but even the mightiest general can be brought low by the vulgar thrust of a peon's spear.

>> No.51423909

Realistic warrior nuns, not often does this concept get used. Although instead of hammers and maces (the unwieldiest of weapons) they'd use spears, crossbows, and muskets, stuff their twiggy little girl arms can wield properly.

I mean for the average present-day woman, that assumption makes sense, but dedicated warriors would be more than capable of wielding a warhammer or mace effectively. That seems odd unless you're specifically going for a "and they were rescued by the striking, muscular young soldier, and there was much heaving of bosoms" vibe. In which case you may carry on.

Naah, I think that anon is exaggerating for the sake of a--for lack of a better term--savior fantasy. Big strong man saves weak little woman.

And to be fair, I've got my own. Except they typically revolve around the strapping muscular fighter helping me keep warm in a snow cave during a blizzard. I'm more accustomed to the city, you see. In fact, back in the Capital where we met, I got in the habit of teasing him whenever he needed my help with something that came naturally to me--finding his way around, getting attacked by robbers wandering around at night.

But then we have to leave the Capital--right in the dead of winter, no less--and now he's the one protecting me. I can't start a fire or pitch a tent.

So just based off the "twiggy little girl arms" and the fact that I'm assuming it's the same person who posted "the lithe members of the elven ranger guard tease her", that's what I think's going on.

The chest isn't even offered full protection by the big fucking boob window, leaving it vulnerable to crossbows, lance strikes, polearms, war picks, and even fucking arrows. Her hair isn't rolled up or otherwise pinned inside the helmet, and instead hanging out like a retarded fashion so any-old person could simply seize it and thus disable her from the pain. The visor is stupid as fuck and she wouldn't even be able to see out of it. In fact, the whole helmet design is completely retarded.

You aren't familiar with the subject matter, that's the problem. Your eye hasn't gotten so used to something and so used to judging it that anything lower than absolute perfection will look like mired shit. Fantasy shit like that picture is exactly that, it doesn't look sexy. It looks offensive to the eyes, like if somebody took a shit right in front of you and called it art.

Fantasy armor need not look realistic such as Chaos Warriors, but one should be able to move in it effectively and it must provide protection with little to no downsides to its use. It's for this reason why Berserk and Witcher are some of the better fantasy universes.

My opinion is objective fact because it's based upon plausible function, of which there isn't subjectivity.

>> No.51440599


Except the idea that plausible function is of innate value in all contexts is an opinion, and one which some people don't share.

Liking ridiculous fantasy armour doesn't mean you aren't aware of how real armour works. I've worn armour a few times, I've learned enough about it to be able to spot if it'd actually provide decent protection or not.

And you know what? In a fantasy setting, I don't give a flying fuck about any of those things.

When fantasy adheres to realism, it can focus its content on drawing you into a world that is truly fantastical.

This is why the LotR films are so beloved. You will never see weapons or armour in the LotR films that look unreasonable or silly. Even Sauron's big bad evil armour and mace looks somewhat functional.

This helps make the fantastical elements seem more real. The orcs in LotR look real, like they could walk off the screen and shank you in the gut. The orcs in WoW: The Movie look like chewing-gum-golems using American-LARP gear.

Same goes for fantasy armour for girls. By giving a female hero some armour that looks reasonable, you can tell something about the world. A middle-eastern girl wearing plate must have travelled to some west-european nation, or perhaps she's from a story where the middle-eastern smithing guilds never managed to lobby plate armour out of their lands (because it would cost a lot of metal workers their jobs, no more making mail rings or lammelar plates).
If you gave her just some typical fantasy WoW armour, no one would have wondered about her armour, because it is just some generic fantasy garbage.

>> No.51443881


This is just a slightly wordier 'My opinion is superior' argument.

Sure, you feel that way. From the sheer amount of fantasy cheesecake out there, it's clear other people do not.

No-one would have wondered about this, either, because as much as you worldbuilding obsessives like to claim otherwise, literally nobody gives a shit about details like that.

Also lol at Lord of the fucking Rings adhering to realism. That's a film series that depicts gigantic cities and fortresses existing in the middle of featureless open plains, instead of surrounded by the miles of farmland that such settlements would need in reality.
