I've recently got hold of a large set of minis and am about to get started on painting them (just finished priming). All the GKs I see have the same basic paint scheme of silver, gold, red, and white, but I want something different that still manages to fit in fluff-wise. Do you guys have any any ideas for grey knights that aren't, well, grey? I was thinking an inquisitorial look of black with red might do it, but that may look too chaos-y
Edit: I just found another thread with the same name lol that discusses the same topic
still would love to know your opinion tho

If you want to go with regal you could go with purple and gold.
Come to think of it id really like a dark blue trimmed with gold or perhaps red/white
Rich colous like deep red or regal blue really do suit the GK miniatures, then again so does black with extreme highlights and gold detailing (this looks awesoe on GKTs if you do it right). Personally I went for the boltgun metal-blue ink with different coloured storm bolters and squad insignias on the right shoulderpad to mark out each squad.
I don't remember where it is on here, but miketehfox had Orange GK's, that looked good.
I'm currently working on painting up some Cream and Bronze/Tin GK's. I'm looking for just the right Cream colored spray base, then go over it with a Dark Brown wash, and finish with Tin Bits, gold, and perhaps a pearlescent paint.
then I'm going to strip my Sisters and paint them with a similar scheme.

I also once found GK in grey blueish coloring, with green NFS cutting implements. Were very cool, but can't seem to find that website. He or she had some really nice painted stuff!
Mine is just codex scheme, with blue ink to emphasize edges etc.
