Don't have an aswer for you as I've not started mine yet, but I'm eager to hear the responses of others to give me a few ideas!

Could You post pictures? Or "paint recipe"? We could figure out what's wrong with them.

Also, what are the colors of your army? the Agonizer really should stand out a bit while fitting in with the scheme of what you are doing.

I use a mix of Hawk Turquoise and black, then HT, the HT and white and then just a tiny bit of white.

However my army is desert colored so it stands out. I would use a contrasting color to your armor color.

Also, I paint with my darker color, then I highlight with the Hawk Turquoise, my last trick is to paint diagonal lines across the top of the whip, and then highlight those lines with the final bit of white.

I think I have some images in my Project log. Look for the black Halo in project logs.

You could try going for a green/yellow combination, Helliarch on p74 of DE codex has that, sunburst yellow highlights scorpion green quite well for a vivid colour like the one shown there.
It should contrast nicely with the bodysuits in particular.

how about prime it white, wash all over with asurmen blue, then painting over it with mechrite red where you don't want the blue colour and highlight that as normal?

Not something I've tried before I hasten to add, just trying to throw a few ideas out there for you.

Actually painting it with white and washing in GW stuff may be nice.
Or metal paint (mitril silver) + light white highlight on spikes + washes, I did that on some... test subjects while ago, looked nice (no photo because I cleaned them).
