boar armor by luve boar armor by luve
so pullman lied to you all. there was a mass typo in his books.
it should have been armored BOAR.

or...you know. i can dream.

uniboars probably wouldn't ever need armor. they're lazy and vain and wouldn't see any point in big battles. but they do like the look of it for special events :]

Nice design on the armor here! I especially like the nose ring connected to the tusks and the red color.

I love it how your boars are all furry :D :) My family used to keep pigs and some were wild/partially wild. Some of their piglets were brown with stripes and some were pink...very cute. They were definitely not this furry though...their fur (hair?) was more coarse. :)

Armored boars, eh?

I knew it all along! Hopefully you alerted everyone soon enough that they can change the movies! I'll be sooo very upset if I go to see them and they still have those ridiculous bears...

As always, lovely work. For some reason I can't tear my eyes from that fantastic crackly texture on his armor!

Love the design! It doesn't only look good but also functional. Like someone already mentioned, it would be too cool for words to see a group of these guys in their armours walking the streets. :D

I keep misreading the title as "boar amor"- say it, it rhymes! (great pic, btw- I love the application of traditional armor motifs to a non-traditional subject)

I think Iorek would be vaguely offended ;) Though I don't know what for, that is probably the sweetest boar to ever exist. For serious.

I love the tassels on the tusk-cords. Though if they ever did gallop to battle that'd be a weakpoint
(pulls on the cord, shouting 'stopping next station!' And scampers before she gets her comeuppance)

This should be in the movie.

The armor is very beautiful but still practical-looking. And I like the tassels and decoration around the face. :)
