Dark Elf Blood Bowl Assassin

Next player up for my dark elf team is an assassin. The fact that this player can run around stabbing his opponents in the back without risking getting caught by the referee is enough to include one, but overall I don't find this player very useful.

The assassin does provide for an interesting modelling project though and I had this idea in my head that I just had to try out. I ended up using the body of an elf wardancer called Eidyn because of the very cool fighting claw he has strapped to his right arm. The head was taken from an eldar scout wearing a scarf.

I green stuffed the skull on the shoulder pad as well as the towel hanging from his waist. I chose to paint the base ring green. Green is normally reserved for blockers, but since dark elves don't have any I figured that it would work as well as any other color.
