With so many fan-made preliminary image compilations of the races in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda via its official blog has decided to trump them all with compilations of twenty diverse headshots for each race. To say that they are an improvement over the modeling in Oblivion, and Fallout: New Vegas as well, is an understatement.
The order of the images below are alphabetical: argonians, bretons, dark elves, high elves, imperials, khajits, nords, orcs, redguards, and wood elves. I will likely play as one of the plain human races before taking on the awesomely different argonians and khajits. How about you?
