I painting a few kroot mercs to add to my existing armies (and possibly expand into their own army) and I'm a bit stuck on what color to paint their hair/spines. I've settled on a bright golden yellow color for their skin (to go with either bold or fast reflex evolutionary adapts) with pretty standard brown clothing and rusty-ish metal and wood weapons. I've tried a few colors but nothing seems to be working well.......any suggestions as to what a good complimentary color for their hair/spines might be?
Please don't double post, and that picture is miles too wide. Please either use a link or drop it's size to 600 - 700px wide. - KU
oops sorry, lesson learned

The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
you could paint the needle-like hair a dark brown/black with the extreme highlight of bleached bone/pale yellow to better extinguish the colours, if you're painting your kroots in nice bright colours like that you scare them into shooting the wrong units :shifty: that's what i'm doing with my Tau lol
I like Kai-Itza idea, I'd probably go with it. But I think it depends on what their host army's color is. Base it on that. Or you could for light green for a jungle look, red for a desert look, brown for...well you ghet what I mean. I seen black work with yellow, but then again it might make it look like a bee. Stay away from the cool colors though. The clashing colors will look wierd.
You may have really well thought out, and complicated tactica, but I know I have the most efficient one : I shoot you, you die.
Those look fantastic! I did the same thing (yellow Kroot) and I found that the best look, for me at least, was to paint the hair in a Bleached Bone. After it drys make uneven stripes of Scorched brown down the lengths of the hair. So it looks like the Chesire Cat . Also, I took little circles of Green Stuff and made really brightly colored beads in several places in the hair, which was very stunning, especially in blues and greens.
Good luck, looking awesome so far! Rep
