New Skyrim character screens are all class

Argonians, Khajiit, Orcs, Elves and Humans strike a pose for Bethesda's latest pics

We hope you've banked some vacation time, because you may need to take an immediate leave of absence to fawn over these sixteen new The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim character screenshots straight from the hallowed halls of Gamescom.

Bethesda'snewest collection ofin-game picsdepict all seven available races including the tiger-like Khajiit, the reptilian Argonians, the Game of Thrones Sean Bean-esque Nords, Orcs, Reguards, Wood Elves and Dark Elves. Paired with what is reported to be a robust character customization system, the sheer variety of choices should make it so that no two players are ever alike. Check out the pics and let us knowwhich skin you'll be wearing this fall.
