Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week - 300: Spartans in Skyrim!

Kevin VanNord hates company, but he'll make an exception for Leonidas and his 300 Spartan warriors. Their muscular torsos will bring Skyrim to is knees.

Throwable weapons mod(i forget the exact name) works really well and lets you throw spears.  I would be awesome for the spartan armor mod!

I love that Kevin VanNord can just run out into the wilderness and instantly grow a high-definition beard. He's one impressive man.

I think it would be amazing if the next Elder Scrolls game in the series went BACK in time rather then forward! Maybe when the Dwemer were alive and well or showing the event that ended their kind, or possibly You get to fight alongside Tiber Septim and conquer the known world! Just some thoughts!

you know there is also a mod that changes the Fus-ro-dah to "this is sparta!" lol


I do love you guys and watch your other shows, please keep it up :)


I was going to take a selfie too, printed out a picture of the iron helmet on an A4 paper to put on my face, but it was too small lol

What ENB and Texture mods are you guys using? Because it looks really, really good! Is it possible if you guys could post all the active mods you guys are using, besides the top 5 weekly mods? :)


Thank you in advance!

I like how the Spartan cape is pinned to his pecs.  Spartan training was harsher than I thought.

Hammerfell would be a good one! I'm hoping for Elsweyr as it seems a bit more exotic. Btw thanks for the mention, it made our week! keep up the good work!

Hey guys,

great show as always!  However, as a suggestion I think it would be fun to make an episode of Oblivion mods, New Vegas Mods, or even Morrowind mods as all three games have very healthy communities.

Casually touring the town while your Spartan Army slaughters everybody in it. Doesn't get much more badass then that.

I reckon Elsweyr would be good for ES6. Home of the Khajiit, it's kind of tropical like Just Cause 2.

When Elder scrolls online comes out, or even Elder Scrolls VI, will you still do Top 5 skyrim mods? This game will be 3 years old this year and it still makes Gamespot front page.

Thank you for featuring a mod that it was inspired  by Greek history.I know that the mod is inspired by the movie 300 and that the movie is based on a comic called 300 and the comic is based on battle of Thermopylae

@lurkinglion  I would love to see the Dwemer ages. just like you said follow the story of their extinction that would be epic.

@b0sse  Why would you watch or comment on this video if you really think the game is bad?

@zepni I think they mentioned before they are using Real Vision ENB :)

@bfa1509 The problem with Elder Scrolls Online is that it won't really allow modding so it won't have an effect on Skyrim.  Skyrim still has a healthy modding community and Cam and Seb seem to be having no trouble finding creative and fun mods to showcase.

Elder Scrolls VI, isn't coming out any time soon as Zenimax won't want it to steal Online's player base.  Its interesting that World of Warcraft ending up killing the single player Warcraft series.

I would be sad to see top five mods go unless it were to be replaced with some other game.  Our best bet is probably Fallout 4.

@bdous  yeah 300 Spartans and 700 Thespians.


The Thespian regiment all wore black cloaks.

They carrie shields with the emblem of the waxing moon (1/4 moon).

This was the emblem of the Melaina Afroditi (Black Aphrodite) an aspect of Aphrodite associated with night, sadness, grievance and love.

They had made a vow beforehand that they would all die and would never return.


Most people remember Spartans though

@meedokicky I just installed it. It doesn't look as awesome as that, and I'm running the full version and not the performance. :(

@meedokicky @zepni  Also follow all the instructions on changing your Skyrim.ini files. If you haven't got bFloatPointRenderTarget=1 then no depth of field!


Then just install the other recommended mods like Climates of Tamriel, Realistic Lighting Overhaul etc.


Boot the game, and turn anti-alising and anisotropic filtering to 0. All other settings on high or ultra.


Should look like ours then!

@zepni @meedokickymake sure you have the latest version of ENB plugin, because if like me, you're using the early version, it won't have depth of field and other options when you press shift+enter in game.


I will get more into ENB once I have finished upgrading my PC, currently playing on a laptop so can't do much :P
