Finally, the last three races got their racial armors!

Argonian and Khajiit are refreshing unique (though they could have blended maya/aztec style with some other style, and not just copy and paste, atleast has a hood and not an animal hide and head on it). Orcish armor on the other hand... just looks like anything else... in green.

That khajiit armour is nice, don't like the Orc armour too much like the ones we have seen before.
The Argonian armour is unique.

The Khajiit armour looks great. Personally I don't really like the Argonian armour, but that could be just me. And about the Orc armour... I just think they could've made it more unique

I am going to play an Orc, and am a little disappointed in the Orcish Armor. As with everyone else's comments, I think they could have made it more unique. I think a little more gruesome, aggressive, or barbaric. I think the other two are very distinctive, and amazing, so why make the Orc so similar to some of the other races?

Edit: After going back and looking at the other armors, it looks way too much like redguard armor, they even both have the helmet plume, and the differences are very, very subtle and few.

Edit #2: Okay, so I still feel like Orc is not as unique as the other Argonian or Khajiit, but if they made it more aggressive/barbaric, I bet it would just end up looking real similar to Nord armor, as they got a pretty barbaric look with the spikes and horns. So although I don't think it is much different, I don't know what they could have done to make it stand out.

The fires burn. Our supplies are spent. Axes are dull, and armor is rent. The enemy approaches, our doom, they seek. We are Daggerfall Covenant. We are Orcs. Our comrades, they come, for glory they seek, at the side of our iron and steel. We will not fall.

Orc looks a little under-worked. Could of worked on it more. For the other two I like it.

The Khajiit and Argonian armours look awesome, the Orc armour just looks like the other armours but with a green tint.

I really like the Khajiit armour except for the fact that parts of it are upturned. The Orc armour doesn't really look all that great, I find it looks similar in style to elven armour like the Altmer heavy armour. The Argonian armour doesn't really look that good, it's way too slender in my opinion and too much like Aztec/Mayan styles.

Thanks, Idriar. Bookmarking.
Khajiit armor looks fantastic, love the colors and the helmet. Looks like a more exotic Redguard armor, which is what I always picture the Khajiit race as (though they are very different I know). Argonian looks remarkably rugged and stupendously stitched, and looks fitting for a race that lives in dangerous swamps. I agree they should've looked more aztec/mayan, as you put it, though.
Orcs are there too. The armor, while bland, looks very powerful. Fitting for a race of smiths.

I really don't see any Aztec in the Argonian armor design, other than the shield. It looks more like Japanese samurai armor, IMO.

IMO, Khajiit and Argonians look great. They are really unique, compare to the generic blandness of previous two concept arts (well, except maybe Bosmer and Breton armor, which I liked). Both are my favs right now.

I also agree that Orcish armor is exceptionally dull. They could have more sharp edges and aggressive angles, something which would fit the Orcish race. This one looks like it combines the most boring aspects of Redguard and Altmer armor.

So the orce armor looks... like orc armor. Mixed feelings, it does keep the classical orcish armor feel, but I think they could have gotten away with spicing it up a little bit. It is good looking armor, just nothing new besides "ooh it's green now."

Khajiit armor is just faw dropping. The majestic design, brightly colored unlike the other races, and a full fce mask? Oh and of course, ear armor - instant win. Also DAT SWORD. One thing is the knee spikes. Simply put, why?

Argonian armor... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. On a more serious note though, the armor overall is very very unique compared to the others. Where the other look like something a frontline warrior would wear, this looks far more fitting for a rogue type character. Call me racist, but I still don't like it. Looks too boxy maybe? idk, maybe i'm just a giant racist. lol

To the Argonian Armor: It does not look like Aztec/Maya armor, it rather looks like what this armor would have looked like, if they would have had armor (in the sense of heavy armor). The only armor Maya used were pyjama like body suits, had some similarities to European Gambeson, but were much more colorful. With the straight lines and stuff the Argonian armor is rather looking like one of the Aztec/Maya temples.

And could we find a better expression for Maya and Aztec, please? I kinda donĀ“t want to throw all these cultures into the same drawer all the time...

Mesoamerican maybe?

I agree, the Argonian armor here looks much, much, MUCH more like it's medium armor, not at all heavy armor. I think they could put some more mayan/aztec in the design (like they did from the architecture, from some screenies we have seen) as opposed to just "hurr leather".
The shield looks pretty awesome, but still doesn't look like armor soldiers would wear.

Because of their native lands, I find the Argonians looks quite nice. Even their heaviest armor should look and for practical purposes, be lighter than traditional heavy armor. Their armor has a more layered/woven appearance, and I think it is a good fit for them.

I just don't understand, why they didn't make Orcish armor more like the Morrowind one ( http://images.uesp.net/f/fa/MW_OrcishArmor.jpg - yes, the angry looking face-mask is actually part of the helmet) instead of going with this mediocre blend of Oblivion and Skyrim one. The MW helemt would look fantastic in better graphics...
