For your warrior:
Faraam – also known as “comfyknight” this armor is basically a Nord girl’s best friend.
Ebony Valkyrie – I love how this armor looks like black oil, shimmery and badass and the like!
Eisenplatt – this can be a skimpy armor if you don’t wear the skirt with it, but the armor looks heavy enough that I’ll let it slide …
Empire Mercenaries – this is the best armor for an Imperial character IMO and has great details!
Northgirl – a very form-fitting chainmail armor for your Nord.
Plate armor – another great armor from ZZjay’s set, this is perfect for your Imperial to knight around in.
Freya’s Raiment – a hot mix between armor and dress, as you can see … I can’t seem to find the original link for this armor any more so if you want me to upload it, just let me know!
For your forsworn:
Einherjar Brigandine – I think armor might actually be meant for a male but I think it works well on the female Forsworn, too.
Ling Ciel (Vanille Armor) – an import from Final Fantasy XIII that looks perfect in Skyrim somehow.
Anyway, these are just my personal favorites that make for gorgeous screenshots. Let me know what your favorites are and keep checking back on my blog … I’ll be posting an article on my Favorite Male Armors, as well as a Best Skimpy Male & Female Armors post (will be hilarious) soon!
If any of the links in this post don’t work, just let me know in comments and I’ll upload the file to my site just for you!
