nightingale armor

vespidolive  asked:

What would your original characters look like in the Overwatch World?

Ooh, crossover time! I went for my Skyrim characters since those were the easiest to come up with and also because this turned out long enough as it is. My original intention was to do just some armor mashups, but I waded a bit too deep into the “what if” territory, and now my guys also have rough skillsets to go with the outfits.

Disclaimer: these have nothing to do with game balance or viability, I just felt like they could fit these particular characters… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ So, here goes:

Skaila the Dragonborn aka “what if Reinhardt had a massive battleaxe and could also shout you down?” Heavy armor to compensate for the fact that she decided to bring an axe to a gun fight. Sturdy and shouty, but no movement abilities.

Type: Melee 

Role: Offense 

Weapon & Abilities:

  • Wuuthrad: Slash targets in front of you with a mighty swing. Charged attacks are slower, but will inflict extra damage
  • Bash: Slam your weapon into a close range enemy with a chance of interrupting them
  • Unrelenting Force: Amplify air and sound to knock down enemies caught in its wake


  • Dragon Shout: Combine shout with one of two types of reagents. Fire Breath inflicts intense burning damage to all enemies caught in the blast. Frost Breath does less freezing damage, but it can also slow enemies down


  • Storm’s Tears: Wuuthrad inflicts extra damage to elves omnics
  • Juggernaut: Grants a minor resistance against projectiles

Bron the Ultimate Thief aka “the unholy mix of Hanzo and Sombra that will steal your ultimate and probably ruin the match for both teams”. Low health, high annoyance. 

Type: Ranged 

Role: Defense 

Weapon & Abilities:

  • Nightingale Bow: Fires an arrow at a target
  • Poison Arrow: A poisoned arrow will inflict additional damage over time
  • Sneak: Become invisible for 6 seconds


  • Heist: Steal 10% of ultimate charge from all enemies caught in the radius


  • Muffled Movement: Reduced noise generated by footsteps
  • Thief: Ultimate charge gained by killing an enemy will be reduced from the target’s ultimate counter. Only applies to final blows

Laraniel the Seer aka “it’s not magic, it’s just, uh, really advanced science - I promise“. Jack of many trades, but mostly focused on restoration/alteration/illusion. 

Type: Ranged/Beam 

Role: Support

Weapon & Abilities:

  • Staff of Magnus/Staff of Mending: Staff of Magnus shoots an energy beam that absorbs health from the enemy target it hits. Staff of Mending creates floating restorative orbs that heal an ally they come in contact with
  • Greater Ward: Encase a friendly target within a protective barrier that negates damage and other effects for 6 seconds
  • Detect Life: Nearby living creatures can be seen through walls. Effect is not visible to others


  • Vision of the Tenth Eye: Reveal all enemies that have an ultimate ability available. The vision is shared with your allies


  • Clairvoyance: Reveal three unused first aid kits closest to you


EDIT: Altered Laraniel’s would-be ultimate to make it a better fit for the seer theme

I'm thinking about trying to make nightingale armor like yours, and I was wondering how you attached everything and were still able to use the zipper. You say the foam is attached to the bodysuit, and the bodysuit you link has a front zipper. How does that work? Thanks!

I actually ended up cutting the back open and adding a zipper there too! And just glued the armor to the suit with E600 glue. 

But if your starting from scratch, just a get a suit with a zipper in the back. XD Thats just the suit I had on hand from my Celty.


couldn’t decide which one i liked better so y’all can have both

might post a close-up of vax’s armor later ( ᐛ)

Sing my little Nightingale

Though your wings are bound

Sing my little Nightingale

Though you’ll make no sound

Oh my sweet Nightingale

Why can’t you see

My dear dear Nightingale

You’ve always belonged to me.

Sooo… finally done. This is my new Imperial, Kirsten!!! Yay! The explanation behind this creepy picture, is that when she was young her adoptive parents were killed by Molag-Bal because they refused to sacrifice Kirsten to him. She is terrified of being a Nightingale and being forced to serve Nocturnal. (Sorry for the poem. Bad, I know)
