##Additional Credit:

Furok and Grim Age mod team created the original models and textures used in this mod, I just re-rigged the model and did some other tweaks for use in Valheim. Grim Age is a mod based on Warhammer Fantasy, and as such should be considered a Derivative Work to which Games Workshop holds copyright to. Games Workshop's copyright thus extends to the models and textures used in this mod.

  • added cold resist to chestpiece
  • rebuilt assembly from new project yet again

  • added new config options
  • rebuilt dll from new project, praying to god this stamps out any assembly loading issues; will retain loose assetbundle version on Nexus for some time in case not
  • low res texture version available on Nexus, just overwrite ChaosArmor.dll with the .dll provided in that optional file; texture replacement should be client-side and the rest of the code is up-to-date with main file

  • small mesh adjustments:
    • covered up a small gap between the right arm and breastplate with filler material
    • positioned helmet further forward to closer match player character posture (no longer clips with head in character select screen)
  • bunch of cool changes courtesy of zarboz
    • mesh rigging of body matches player posture much better now - unfortunately not enough to prevent clipping, hence Blacksmith's tools remains a requirements
    • on-equip status effects with a special cheesy message for each armor piece, see Gear Stats Breakdown for more details


  • assetbundle now in .dll as an embedded resource, should work when running from mod managers now
