Evening all; I've come seeking a couple of opinions on how to paint various beasts - mostly the new Ogre plastic mounts.
My Ogres skin tone wise is blue painted in a muted tone of - Necron Abyss, Necron Abyss/Enchanted Blue, Enchanted Blue, Enchanted Blue/Ice Blue - with washes of Asurman Blue inbetween each layer of paint to tone down the sharpness of the lighter blues.
My query comes at this point; I have a Thundertusk, Stonehorn and pair of Mournfangs with mostly completed riders sat atop them and I haven't a scooby what to do with them colour wise. Done right they're going to be an amazing centrepiece to the army but I'm afraid to do more than quickly wash them with a light coat of black to pick out areas of deep shadow. I don't want to overpower the Ogres atop them, I'm quite proud of them; I suppose I'm looking to have the Ogre and Mount base colours compliment each other. My colour theory's rubbish and looking at a colour wheel is telling me 'Not that, not that not that' - rather than picking out something that goes 'that works.'
My other opinion is - what sort of colours would people suggest for the Ogre leggings to break them up and again - provide a contrast/compliment to the blue flesh?
