Arkeon Sanath of the Dirz
This is perhaps the best of my works so far. I only say perhaps because I love my Aberation (coming soon). I do think this mini came out the best. The use of neon green mixed with a gold made for a very good scorpion poison colored green that I think fits the theme of this army REALLY well. I look forward to using this color in the future as well.
Seen in this picture as well as above is the green bottle of mutagenics that the Dirz use to amp up their fighters. Effectively super soldier drugs. An outward application is a slight green glow emanating from the eyes of Arkeon threw his helm. This is faint in the human soldier who simply use before a battle, later pictures with creatures will have a much stronger application of a thin neon green around the eyes due to them being consistently pumped with it.
Here we can see the shoulder guard styled like a scorpion in skeletal form. For this I chose to use the stylized neon green/gold mix that creates a sort of green mother of pearl coloring that seems to me to tie in close with the scorpion totem of the Army’s of Dirz.
Of note in the last picture is the bottom of the cloak. I overlaid a thinned out brown color over the green of the cloak effectively giving it a very dirtied/worn look that I feel fit this desert berserker well.
