Need advice

Any ideas on what colors to use to accent this? I will admit my color theory is pretty horrendous.

First off, I think your model looks pretty good. :)

Second, color theory says the complementary color to what you have there is a light green. That would really make the accents pop out. I also think a white could be a good accent color to make the models stand out on the table top, because the models seems kinda dark as is.

Hope that is helpful!

I would wash downward with dark blue or purple first then take you base color and mix it with some bleached bone-ish color to give you a lighter version of the base for highlights/drybrush. Finally, I concur with the green idea and would use a bright green for spot color here and there on little details.

Just my two cents worth, no golden daemons on my shelves so take it for what it is worth.

It's looking good, be sure and post the finished for us?
