However, I've been struggling to locate suitable models to use as coaching staff for my WIP Dark Elf Blood Bowl team. After much searching on ebay through the lovely (but too fantasy-esque) Jes Goodwin Wood / High Elves, I stumbled on these 3 fine fellows:
|Marauder Wood Elves|
What I love about these 3 models is that they are characterful, but also fairly neutral stylistically. They are billed as Wood Elves, but with weapons snips they could comfortably sit into a range of different settings - Elven townsfolk, or (as is my plan) Dark Elf Blood Bowl coaches. The middle guy is my particular favourite - he even has a fur lined coat rather reminiscent of the football sheepskin coat cliche.

|Splendid beasties and characterful figures.|
So for those of you more enlightened than me, what Marauder figures make it to the top of your lists?
EDIT: It's been pointed out that there's a long and extensive debate on this very topic over on the Oldhammer forums, should you wish to check out other peoples' views.
