I like gray skin for CDs like D&D Duergar. If you use the straight gray palette instead of the blue grays for the NMM it should look pretty different.

Otherwise I'd go with off-black, or brown skin. It would give them a more middle eastern feel to pair with their semi-Persian ( :oops: fear of Arash's pimp hand is running strong) features (beards, scale armor, ridiculous hats etc.).

Love it. For the skin, try a pale flesh color. Maybe a 50/50 mix of zombie green & flesh? The whole model has a lot of pahzaz but then the skin color is just eh. Well done, but eh.

Also, what do you think of minor source lighting on just the hands, beard and gun? It seems like you don't need to apply it to the armor.

I think source lighting will look fine with the red scale mail. You just need the lighting on the undersides of the hands and guns and it will come together.

Not a fan of the zombie skin, though with some source lighting it might work. Maybe a cool grey, lighter by a couple of shades than the silver of the gun? And/or darker base color for the gun's NMM. Or brass guns.
