WoW's Mag'har orcs have the best armor, even in cosplay

The Mag'har orcs became playable in World of Warcraft in the Battle for Azeroth expansion, a clan from an alternate Iron Horde as seen in Warlords of Draenor. It's complicated, but basically they're like regular orcs but less green and with cooler armor.

Cosplayer Anhyra based her Mag'har armor on a design by fan artist Anatoly Zelensky (a design Blizzard liked enough to tweet about), constructing it out of varied materials. For instance, that skull on her shoulderguard is made of latex, with horns from foam clay and a base of high-density EVA foam.

You can see the full build process documented over at her Instagram, along with some more shots. Here's Anataloy's original fan art for comparison's sake.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
