Esteemed lovers of color, I am in need of some suggestions/opinions. I have a squad of steel legion with nice, heavy brown leather coats that turned out very well in the shading/color department... however, their knife sheaths were left till last. Now, my main critic (gf) says the brownish color I painted them blends too well into their jackets, and does not stick out well. I agree, I would like the sheaths to stick out better, but I don't want black sheaths and the leather look is kinda nice... what other colors would work? What works well with brown (even if it don't look like leather) that won't stick too far out? Help.
Well, it's all opinion, but I'm partial to dark (scab?) red...

You could paint it a different leather color - such as a redish leather. For instance I find in the vallejo model color range - they have a red leather paint which I find really looks nice with a glaze coat of vallejo woodgrain on top of it.
The straps on my Rotter here are painted that way. Not the clearest example but you should get an idea of the color.

Yeah, that looks pretty good.
I usually use Scorched Brown with a highlight of graveyard earth.
bleached bone .... maybe?

Red-brown or yellow-brown should work.

And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Hmmm... all these suggestions are most wonderful!
I am thinking of going with scab red base, and highlighing with reds/dark yellows to make it look aged some...
Thank you and I hope to post some pics, as they are almost done. Now, all I have to do is get some time to sit down at my model bench!
