They need those on they're left (right if they are lefty) arm so that the arrow don't cut them when they're shot. Don' forget about those, and make them look cool.

I thought that was more because having a highly tensioned string slapping against your forearm gets old pretty quickly.

Both, actually. Obviously, it's not to protect against the tip of the arrow cutting you, but the fletching. (We had archery class in high school phys ed.)

Considering that weapons have been inspired by Indian and Persian designs, would you also consider adding Indo-Persian suits of armor? Armor in Indo Persia was basically mail, with plates on top of it. If you are still interested in expanding the number of armors, I could post some pics.

On second thought, the armors of the region have a very oriental look, so its unlikely that they will fit your setting... But Ill put the pics up anyway, who knows, might be useful for inspiration, at least. Here is the typical Indo-Persian armor, known as the Zirah Bakhtar or Jawshan:





This armor would have been worn with a helmet and some bracers:





Another type of armor was the Char Aina, which was basically four plates worn over mail:











Early Russian weapons and armor were closely inspired by the orient. Here is an east european Bechter:



To me, the above armor has the most Roman look of all of them.

The Sindh region (where Im from) is quite unique in Indo-Persia in terms of armour because it was the only place where something that could roughly be considered plate armour was used. It was basically interlocking plates linked by chain. Some pics of Sindhi armour:









The problem with most of these images is mail armor looks quite awful when it is hanging on sticks, as opposed to properly fitted on a warrior.

Alternative to mail, leather armour, called chihalta hazar masha or coat of a thousand nails was used:

LOL! Took me a second to realize that he was holding a guitar....

Sometimes, breastplates similar to European styles were worn over leather or mail:





Another nice picture of a Zirah Bakhtar:

No female clothing models yet?  Won't be much of a difference for the armours, except gladiator, but the clothing should definately have a distinct model for females.  Especially the nobles.

BTW, I hope I don't have to wear that silly hat.

It looks good, but doesnt look at all like typical Roman clothes as depicted on TV or movies.

I think a red hat on the yellow tunic would really set that little ensemble off, but it could use black pants.

I keed. Another set of great looking outfits. Keep em coming.
