Dirz #6 The project so far

A couple of group pictures of the Dirz models I have painted so far.

Apart from the bases, there is little that ties together the crossbowmen and the Dawn warriors, and I am not sure how much they feel like a whole…

Even though it’s not going to happen for a while, the next step in the project would be to paint some of these gorgeous Keratis warriors, and I’m not sure what colour scheme to use. The main thing will have to be choosing between a red or a cyan robe, I guess… What do you think?

  1. Lovely looking force, Carlo – and perhaps the Keratis are the ones destined to bring together both the red and the cyan by having elements of their paint scheme feature each of the two in the paintwork?

    1. Cheers, I’ll try. But teal and red together seems like a challenge. I could try some kind of gradation across the different models, but I actually never really planned something like this – hey! that’s another thing to learn 🙂

      1. Well, the red might be a ruddy flesh tone on the claws or exposed skin, and/or painting the polearm shaft red, or…

  2. Looking good mate – I get your point that they look a bit disparate though. Tricky when it goes like that, but I’d be tempted to redo the cloth on the blue guys with red instead, but only if it’s bothering you 🙂

    1. Noooo, I won’t redo the cloth – not with all the minis I could paint and the little time I have! If they’re bothered by it, they can just step aside and become part of a different project 😉

    2. More seriously, I guess that’s one of the problems with going all the way on one side of the spectrum. I’ll keep it in mind for next time.

      1. If I’m doing a defined force, I always keep a few pots of paint that make it onto all the minis – mostly neutral tones of course, but always at least one primary colour that unifies the whole force 😉
