Default Rock Gut Plates

I'm thinking of changing my Tribe to the Mountaineaters due to the fact my background for them is very similar already and it would be nice to paint their emblem on my banners, but I'm unsure how to do them so they stand out against my already grey skin, does any one have suggestions because apart from making them a lot lighter than the skin I can't think of anything that will look good?

Here's a picture of one of my ogres -

Just because its rock gutplates doesnt neccasarily mean it has to be a grey rock on his gutplate.

A few examples are black with green wash and gloss varnish on top - chaos dwarfy kinda theme.

Or marble green slabs or anything, look at a rock and start painting for ideas :p

Goodluck and post some pictures when you decide :D

Here's some pictures after I did a search -

There's a lot to choose from but I don't know the colour of mount thug, which is the mountain their tyrant scaled and ended up getting the speckled lichen crag like skin which it'self is a pretty good indication heh but I'm unsure about the technique.

Im trying to think of unusual rock colours or just striking ones, but its hard I know. why not think about fossils or ground sediment to make them stand out in some way

I am also a contributor to this blog where I upload a lot of my other projects under the name Pandorasbitzbox
