yellow maybe?
like a fiery yellow.
or green works with these kind of colours, i used a similar scheme on my marines. blood red with bleached bone/white as main colours... green as a spot colour.

Check the Au'taal colors. That's pretty similar to what you're looking for.

Au'taal uses green on terracotta armour, A cream colour might work, as might yellow. I'd suggest taking a few test models and trying different colours on there. Alternativley this link might help you in choosing a colour as you can use it to experiment with different colours till you find one you like.

Mine are fairly close to this:



For really dynamic looking minis I would recommend using either complementary colours or contrasting colours.

Try this link and pick colours that are either very close together or on opposite sides of the wheel.

This was always a tricky one for me . . . I used a Catachan armour, Black fatigues, and eventually settled on a Bleached Bone Sept Colour, but it probably wouldn't look anywhere near as good on a different colour scheme. I agree with Anubis, a good fiery yellow could do it. Whatever you do, it probably shouldn't be green, contrasting colours look disgusting
