Why do Saltz and Kruber have to look like street clowns…?
Because it’s a great ‘Easter Egg’. Here can be considered as based on real history:
Emperor Maximilian I
When Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I formed the first Landsknecht company in 1487, he intentionally exempted the soldiers from harsh laws regulating consumption on clothing and food. Because their lives tended to be “brutish and short,” the emperor urged them to wear distinctively outlandish garb. Not only did slashed sleeves and bold colors unify the troops, but the attire made the Landsknechte an ostentatious and recognizable force fighting in the emperor’s name.
Also, I am sure these new skins are based on some art from the WFRP books, which I cannot but approve. Moreover, if this is a new style of the Empire in the “new” OLd World, then it is simply wonderful.
I love such bright colors and bizarre and grotesque shapes.
I will certainly be happy to buy this cosmetics … BUT only after solving the problems of duplicated hats and undesructible Heroic Deeds that are overweight my inventory.
