Im considering painting my chaos dwarf beards 'not black’

what do we think? Am I committing a terrible crime or have other people done this?

thoughts please.

Method:

Mine used to be red, prior to them being stripped.
I think they would look fine.

what color are you thinking about?

Ghrask Dragh:

Ha, check out my blog, I went multicolour, haha.

As long as their souls are black my friend it matters not :cheers

Not sure,

Problem is mine have a boltgun (leadbelcher?) metal main torso and with a black beard with a little highlighting, the beards tend to blend in with the metal.

My dwarfs have a blue theme but with a nurgle allignment (Actually building the force that went with Tamurkhan) so not sure about beards.

Thanx to you both for the advice, I have given it a go and it looks sweet,

Thank you.

Brown and blond beards are very rare to see on CD models, even bright orange/red are more popular. Mine used to be blue/black since I was copying in the GW scheme, but now they are plain black.

blue or orange beards all depends on the color of your army

blue beards work with grey or white skin

orange work with a dwarf color skin

I have a mix of browns/red/black in the unit and it looks good. More natural then I had before.

I hate seeing armies where people have empire for example and they all look exactly the same - same skin colour, haristyle, hair colour. I've always been like this, I even had to paint bald patches/moustaches etc on my subbuteo players as a kid. My striker looked like Ron Jeremy from what I can remember.

After looking at some of the others, I feel I should start a blog on here.

I've always used blue/black beards for my infantry and red/auburn/orange beards for my Sorcerers and Bull Centaurs. My Infernal Guards armor is copper for the scales (which is a very reddish metal) and the plate is a deep red almost burgany. I tried the red/auburn/orange beards but there simply wasn't enough contrast so I went back to the standard bluish/black and they look really good. My Sorcerers and Bull Centaurs on the other hand have black armor and black bodies for the bulls, so the Red/Auburn/Orange beards look great since it creates a nice contrast and keeps with the overall Red/Black/Copper colors of my entire army. I've seen a Big Hat army done completely with Red Beards and Black Armor and it looked fantastic.

GRNDL:

I don’t think its heresy but it does seem to be the path less travelled. I wrestled with the idea of different colour beards for quite some time before I made peace with the idea. Chaos Dwarves also go by Dawi Zharr: “Fire Dwarves”, IIRC (its been awhile), so I decided to make my beards look like they were hot, molten metal. The choice is generally welcomed - never heard a bad word about that choice, is probably a better way of putting it.

If you’ve got a bold vision for your dawi zharr, you should indulge it regardless of what you think others might think. Its your army, after all. Be proud of it.

Averrucus:

I’ ve got a blue bearded Demonsmith, a white-ish sorcer one, and almost all my IG dorfs have brown-reddish one…now that I have to paint my hasslefree Hayden as a Rinn-Zharr (is that the term for a female dorf? wasn’t Rinn the female counterpart of Dawi?) I think I’ll try a violet hue for her mohawk! she’s a bad gurl…

Abecedar:

If you want to be a heretic… paint them Pink.
