So, you wanna learn how to make a hand sum husbando eh??? Well you've come to the right place. This guide will show you what mods to get to make a good looking husbando. This quick guide was made by one generous anonymous poster who took the time to find these mods! I had nothing to do with this guide. -Guardly
Before we begin, I must tell you to read the waifu guide first to grab a which slider mod you wish to use and hairs. Many of the hair packs in that guide also work for males which is pretty weird. In any case we're gonna start out with some body meshes.
SAM - Shape Atlas For Men
So far this is the best quality male body mod replacer for SE.
It introduces a wide variety of body forms that can be assigned directly or randomly to male characters in Skyrim.
This is achieved by introducing three basic body types:
"Normal" - Similar to the vanilla body. Ranges from skinny to, well, normal.
"Samson" - Muscular, top heavy body form. Wide shoulders, small hips. Adds muscle definition to the body.
"Samuel" - Fat, almost pear-shaped body form. Narrow shoulders, wide hips. Adds softness to the body.
Now this is both a skin texture and body mod replacer. This has a more vanilla feel with the body mod while adding high quality textures.
Schlongs Of Skyrim SE
Raise your dongers.
Now like female texture mods, the textures must be compatible with the body or else it's not gonna look good or it will look glitched. Here are a free body mods, these usually do not come with faces.
And for beast races...
Flawn's Vanilla Argonians Redux - UNP CBBE SOS - 4k 2k
A high res retexture of the Argonians, based off the vanilla textures.
Masculine Khajiit Textures
New textures for male Khajiits.
Masculine Argonian Textures
New textures for male Argonians. It also comes with an extra variant that adds Chameleon colors or even extra scales.
FAR - Forgotten Argonian Roots
It's a new texture mod for argonians which comes with a massive amount of customization and compatibility options. All body types are accounted for.
Finally, we have a bunch of extra mods that we recommend you use. Things like high quality warpaint and eyebrows can really make a difference. Also, if you want high quality facepaint to work, you must type this into the SKSE.ini file which should be in /skyrim/data/skse. If you don't have a SKSE.ini, make one and add this line:
BeastHHBB - Khajiit and Argonian content - player character and NPC replacer
New vanilla based models for hair,horns, beard and brows combined with vanilla options - Beast races only
Barbarian Bodypaints - Racemenu Body and Head Overlays for UUNP CBBE and Males
A collection of 10 sets of Face, Body, Hand, and Feet paint in a rough barbarian style. Compatible with UUNP and CBBE Female bodies, as well as Male.
Wolfpaint - Face - Facepaint Collection for Racemenu Overlays
A massive collection of facepaints.
Beards of Power
This mod adds about 113 new beards for males. These beards are mixtures of different beard meshes to make something new for any type of husbando. Works with any beard texture mod too.
Improved Eye Reflections
Adds a new high-res cube map that makes the reflection in eyes look more detailed and not just a bunch of dots anymore. You can actually see Whiterun in the reflection!
Eye Normal Map
Replaces the normal map textures for eyes so that they don't have weird looking reflections anymore.
A high quality teeth retexture made by Eiries!
Adds a fin hairstyle to Argonians like in Morrowind and Oblivion.
Battle Hardened warpaint
Improved Eyes Skyrim
The Eyes Of Beauty
Best you're gonna get for male hair mods.
Hallgarth's Additional Hair
Adds a lot of vanilla-style hair to the game that should fit in with what already exists. All hair uses vanilla textures, so any mod that changes vanilla hair textures will also affect these.
