    It's Orcish armour, and I see a resemblance.

    Here's a handy step-by-step guide on how to milk people for money on kickstarter: https://medium.com/p/41bde58c832b

    It's mainly forcused on hardware rather than games/software, but it does explain a lot of the tricks you can use, especially to get attention to your product.

    it's what samurai armor might look like if japan had more metal in terms of design ('cept for those ridiculous pauldrons). supposedly orcish, lore wise supposedly based on aldmer armor. it might as well be akavir. you see a resemblance because both armors are plate, have horns and feature shields. but really, that's all there is to it.

    The Akavir aren't related to the Altmer.

    aldmer not altmer. the aldmer are the oldest culture that influenced p. much everybody and akavir are the generally asiatic guys with at least one armor design based on armors worn by ashigaru (the blades armor) and katanas, so yeah, that samurai looking orcish armor in morrowind is somewhat akavir in style. then it became more mongolian in oblivion and general fantasy plate bullshit in skyrim.

    i meant those http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Aldmer for some reason i remembered orsimer armors being based on aldmer not altmer designs, but whatever. it's not like the lore is consistent when it comes to orcish armor.
    as for akavir:

    Well, there is such statement in game, IIRC and Orcish armour being patterned after Akaviri would raise some questions - mainly how and why.
    OTOH orcs, aldmer, Trinimac, omnomnoms etc.

    It does look more than just kind of Japanese so Akavir does spring to mind after looking at it, but there is no actual indication it has anything to do with Akavir and the only akavir armors we've seen were Blades' ones in oblivion (which was a derp game) and Skyrim (which had to follow from OB).

    BR?
