I’ve got an idea for an army I’ll be building this summer when I finish uni which is an Ork Army with 2 sets of 9 nob bikers, 1 Warboss and a squad of grots.
The idea is to convert the bikers into armored knights using black orc bits and using the goblins from Warhammer fantasy and paint each half of the army in a different color scheme. To better represent that these two warbands are bitter rivals in competition to see who can get the most kills.
The problem is I’m need to think of two good contrasting colour schemes that will suit the armored bikers. In the beginning I thought of using black and white schemes but I feel that white won’t look write on an ork warbike so I’m looking for any suggestions for the two paint schemes? I'm not looking for colours that are too strong.

Well, in ork culture two colours stand out; red and blue. Red is believed to make things go faster - so vehicles are usually red (re: Speed Freekz). Blue is considered a lucky colour to the orks, certain clans paint themselves with blue war paint. Red and blue are pretty contrasting and would work well side by side I think.
Well if you want opposing tribes there are 3 different rival tribes. Goffs (black and white) and Blood axes (camo, multiple colours), Deff skulls (blue) and Bad moonz (yellow), Evil suns (Red) and Snake bites (light yellow and brown)
Or if you dont want to follow one of them then simply look at any colour wheel and pick a colour, then pick the colour the exact opposite side of the spectrum... sorted.
Sometimes the best defense is a good offense... Wait, what?
