Blitz Bowl Sea Elf (Elven Union) team - Southsea Coast Breakers

Image
My motivations for this Elf team came from the the idea of Sea Elves. Both Dungeons and Dragons 5e and the Warhammer Age of Sigmar feature Sea Elves. {Editor's Note: Apparently so did the Warhammer Old World, I just didn't know it until after!) They are very different in narrative, but that is not important -- visual inspiration was my goal and I meshed ideas for the look for these elves from both sources. Greenish skin, a cold facial look, but colorful hair and "good guy" colors... a mish-mash of Blood Bowl elves, Idoneth Deepkin, and Forgotten Realms "Sword Coastal" elves.



I would like to see a High Elf or Sea Elf team from Games Workshop. But doubt it will be coming... I include my old 1990's High Elf team at the end of the post here for comparison. I was so proud of these guys back in the day... I'll make a separate post for them someday soon -  just for fun.
