On her I wanted to see how far I could lighten my drow skin with it still looking like a drow, don't know if I succeeded or not. I do know I picked the wrong model think yea alot of skin showing but after I did the skin and took a look at the armor I was at a complete lost on how to proceed.

She looks pretty!

 

The Warhammer Dark Elves are meant to be paleskinned Elves ( Not darkskinned) so she will fit into that lore without a problem.

I can see how a Drow would also end up with lighter skin, living underground and all..

Very nicely painted.

 

I'm not really getting a 'drow' feeling from her, though. As Glitterwolf mentioned, she'd definitely fit in the Warhammer lore as a dark elf, though.

Getting more of a Dryad vibe from the front, but the silvery hair in the back looks very nice and dark-elfy. Good painting either way!

It's weird how D&D traditionally makes their deep subterranean humanoids (derro, grimlocks, svirfneblin, drow, duergar, troglodytes, orogs, illithids, etc) dark grey or deep purple. I rationalize it as this: The mythic underworld is full of CHAOS MAGICK RADIATION. It's more mutagenic than UV (and also magic). Where melanin helps protect from excess sunlight, some grey-purple fantasy pigment protects against Chaos. Hence, violet elves, grey dwarves, mauve mindflayers, etc. Also why purple worms are purple.
