What's up with it?
Does anybody have any pics of the armor?
These pics were posted in the official "Talion" thread.
Also, Teal'c wore something different, armorwise
Isn't it a little late in the series to be introducing new armor?
Also, if those Jaffa are loyal to the Ori, why aren't they wearing something closer to the Ori armor or have Ori staff weapons?
Tealc's armour in 'Talion' looked alot like the kind of armour Bra'tac usually dons, maybe he either just wore something of bra'tac or Tealc's now considered a master jaffa.
Costume-wise, it looks flimsier and such.
Perhaps this is due to the budget cuts. The antagonist's armor looks like a scaled down Goa'uld armor... or something they'd give to the lowest rank foot soldier. I dunno.
It just kinda felt cheap to me. :|
Im still wanting to see a Jaffa -vs- Ori soldier battle.
maybe it was not intended as armour, but more of an everyday type of clothing. he was the leader of a large group of jaffa, so he probably wouldn't of worn the same armour as them. it also makes him stand out form the other jaffa,and makes him more of an individual character, rather than another normal jaffa.
I think the real reason for that funky armor was simply to save on costuming. The show is almost over, instead of investing in a new costume this late in the series, it's cheaper and easier to recycle the old costumes, putting them together to make it "look" new. Although in the end it just looked like crap.
Oh well. I don't really watch the show for it's outstanding costume designs, it's the stories that really matter to me anyway.

Well for one the old armor was very uncomfortable to wear and CJ has said that many times so they switched to the chain mail and the robes. I agree on the Arkad statement as saying it wasnt meant as armor.

We don't even know who was the "god" of Arkad, I doubt all the Goa'uld have the same armor model...
Yeah, that was Bra'tac's armor type that Teal'c was wearing. Maybe he was "promoted" since the time they were reforming the Jaffa nation after Dakara was destroyed.
I thought the reason Arkad had his unique armour was because if he'd been wearing normal Jaffa armour it would have protected him from being stabbed.
