Makes them more dangerous too, while you're at it.
Thanks, the Jarl is kind of a play off of the Vol and their heavy armor. I do have a black one of those armors, but I wanted it to go along with the officers more.
As for them being not so much like vikings, the idea is that they are equivalent to the vikings in history, or closest to it in space. It's like space pirates; they don't have a collaboration of pirate hats, wooden legs, and stolen clothing as their get-up, they have big clunky helmets/hats, robotic implants, and stolen space suits. The space pirates don't use rapiers and one-shot pistols, but they do use assault rifles and beamswords.
Same deal with the space vikings, but a little bit more to the historical look (or as close as you can get in space). They all have the chainmail armor, weapons with bullets as opposed to lazer weapons, and gigantic axes for close combat weapons.
