The Fantasy Art of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - City Guard Armor
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is a first-person perspective fantasy computer role-playing game set in a vast 3D world with an open-ended storyline that allows the player the freedom to pursue the main quest, side quests, or simply explore the world. The game is set in a different geographic location from the previous in the series (Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind) and in general the architecture and wildlife is more medieval and real-world. The fantasy game art is vastly improved, however, and at the time of its release wowed the world with its realism and attention to physics in its interactivity.
The city guards outside of the Imperial City have similar outfits that primarily differ from each other in the color and designs of the cuirass and shield. The Imperial City guards either wear the heavy Imperial Legion armor or the silver armor of the Watch Captains and Palace Guards.
City guards share the same simple helmet. The other parts of their armor/uniform (gauntlets, greaves, boots) are drawn from other armour sets, usually chainmail. There are very few female guards, and perhaps for that reason there is no female version of the armour -- the female version below is from a mod. The slideshow at the bottom of this page has pictures of the armor from the various cities of Tamriel (Anvil, Bravil, Bruma, Cheydinhal, Chorrol, Kvatch, Leyawiin, Skingrad).
