Saw this on another forum. Glad to see that they're actually in the game. Also, sorry if this has been posted before, but it's the first I've seen of it.

Act IV, Scene III, continued
Lifts-Her-Tail: Certainly not, kind sir! I am here but to clean your chambers.
Crantius Colto: Is that all you have come here for, little one? My chambers?
Lifts-Her-Tail: I have no idea what it is you imply, master. I am but a poor Argonian maid.
Crantius Colto: So you are, my dumpling. And a good one at that. Such strong legs and shapely tail.
Lifts-Her-Tail: You embarrass me, sir!
Crantius Colto: Fear not. You are safe here with me.
Lifts-Her-Tail: I must finish my cleaning, sir. The mistress will have my head if I do not!
Crantius Colto: Cleaning, eh? I have something for you. Here, polish my spear.
Lifts-Her-Tail: But it is huge! It could take me all night!
Crantius Colto: Plenty of time, my sweet. Plenty of time.
END OF ACT IV, SCENE III 
 
Sometimes, there just isn't enough vomit in the world... 
  
Anyway, they don't look as good as I thought it would. Shame considering how it's my go-to race for every TES title. I'll think I'll wait for some more screenshots before making and passing judgements though.

Dark Elfs and Argonians both seem to look creepier.  
 
I guess my assassin character will either have to be an Imperial or a Khajiit.

Kick ass. I like it. Still looks like an Argonian, but the details really make it. Curious to what the male will look like! Torn between this and Khajiit for my first character.... they both look pretty kick ass.

Never really been a fan of the non-human/non-elf races in the Elder Scrolls game and this doesn't appear to be any exception. I can handle the Khajiit to some extent but there has always been something super cheesy and unappealing about a human with scales and a raptor head (essentially). Still, it looks good graphically, that's for sure.

Whoa, I always found Argonians kind of silly, even when the games were in top shape... but this looks badass!

#8 Posted by Sumbog (481 posts) -

This take on the Argonians is really neat, I enjoy it quite a bit, they seem a tad bit more badass. I wont play one, but they will be nicer to look at then they were in oblivion.

#9 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3020 posts) -

Great!  Argonians always were the best race.

#10 Posted by ZombiePie (5585 posts) -

In Oblivion the stats and traits for Argonians versus the other races made them kind of a useless race unless you wanted to swim a lot or go the illusion route when it came to magic.

Very cool. I love the fact that she has both a quiver on her back and a sword sheathed on her hip.

Game Informer posted a new Khajiit screenshot. The beast characters are looking pretty good. I'm still going Orc, but at least the NPC Argonians and Khajiit won't look like dweebs.

#12 Posted by TearsInRain (269 posts) -

Hmm, the new designs might actually make me play a Kajitti or Argonian this time.

Dang son, this is about 1000x better than any previous Khajiit. Forget my prior comment about not really liking them, now I'm on board.

Oh, and if I can get the Sword of Omens in Skyrim (and it will give me sight beyond sight) that would rule as well.

Are Argonians cold-blooded and if so how will they fare in the colder environment? 
 
<not a serious question obviously>

#15 Edited by SlashDance (1804 posts) -
Well, I guess I'll be a Kajiit
Check out that sweet hair style !
#16 Posted by fini_fly (767 posts) -

The Argonian kind of looks like a velociraptor from JP3. 
 
All of the character portraits look awesome.

@fini_fly: haha yeah it kind of does.
#18 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

I hope they make a mod that will turn everyone into human species. Inb4racist

#19 Posted by Jimbo (9772 posts) -

The Khajiit look badass. Bonus points for reminding me of Quest for Glory 2.

Loving the new look, I can tell Oblivion will not age well on consoles.

Anybody with eyes and a copy of the game can tell that.

Really liking the designs of the races so far.  I felt like in Oblivion everything that wasn't human looked like someone in makeup for a bad horror movie.

I only mentioned it because the PC version with mods look great, while the console versions arn't getting any better.

Shouldn't those cold blooded bastards freeze to death in the great white north?

Nice, I can totally dig this look.

Oh yeah, good point. Sheeeet, even Morrowind still looks amazing with mods

Check out this Nord

That's what I'm talkin' about. Hurrah for 2h blunt!

#29 Posted by sreya92 (193 posts) -

That argonian looks like a damn velociraptor. The khajit looks different from the first pics we saw of the race but still looks good

Nords look bad ass. Now I know what I'm making my dude.
#32 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2129 posts) -

Argonians look a lot better this time around.  Man Bethesda's art team have done a magnificent job this time.

Same! Never considered Khajiit before, but they look fierce in this one.
#34 Posted by bioblood22 (420 posts) -

Man I almost never play as an argonian but I have to admit it looks pretty damn cool. 

#35 Edited by Hobbies (976 posts) -

All these new pics look great, but I wish the beast races had claws. :( 
 
I'm satisfied with the Argonians, though. Will probably try my hand at a Khajiit character as well...hell, maybe even an Orc, and a Bosmer after seeing their pictures!

@SlashDance: I can't say this enough but I love the classic look of the Orcs, makes me want to play DnD again.
#37 Posted by bioblood22 (420 posts) -

Is it just me or did Bethesda just basically go "Yea all our races are gonna look bad ass this time around." ?

#38 Posted by Aronman789 (2676 posts) -
@bioblood22
Well you kinda have to be a bit badass to survive infinite dragons.
#39 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11477 posts) -

Hopefully Argonians will have a half decent special ability this time. Water Breathing and Poison Immunity, while nice and all, can be replicated by spells.

 Ah, point taken sir.

I went Argonian always in past games, but that Khajiit looks pretty sexy. I might have try that out. What was the unique ability that Khajiit's have always had(Along the lines of Argonians breathing underwater) in the series?

Night eye was a natural win for thieves and sneaky types, and eye of fear came in handy a few times when a shop keep came downstairs in the middle of the night - before he could finish pitching a fit, he was running witless into the night.
