RE: need help please with a armor uv map
I don't quite get what you want to do. Gimp may hep you coming up with a snake scale texture, but you seem to already have one and applying the texture on the armor so that if moves with the armor is a question for Blender, not for Gimp? Unless you are looking for a bump map?

Load your mam
"File/open as layer" the scale pattern
Move the scales layer above uv map one
Put the scales layer in "overlay" mode
Get a selection that cover the places in the uv map where you want the scales
Invert the selection
Back to the scales layer
[delete]

RE: need help please with a armor uv map
There must be a way to apply a "skin" on that wireframe, but something somewhere must generate a blank skin which can then be enhanced.
