So i have been thinking a lot lately about what colors to paint my high elf army and was thinking i might go with a red and black themed army with the armor being a mix of gold/silver. Was just wondering if that was going to be too dark (evil), or if that is a suitable combination and makes sense for the high elves. Thanks in advance.
Hmm sounds slightly too dark to me. But they are your army, you can paint them whatever colour you want and I would recommend that approach.
You are going to be painting a lot of them and if your only half happy with your colour scheme it will make it harder to motivate yourself to paint them.

I second it! I wouldn't like it if I were to start a HE army, they would end up worshiping kaine if they look so bloody and dark... Then again, you can do what you want, and even make up fluff for some HE colony or whatever...

I would love to see purple and bone HE's.
Yeah the purple and bone white would look really cool i think, that was another color combination i had in mind, black and purple with gold armor but that would look too dark elf too me too i think, my whole idea was to have a faction of high elves who hates and despises dark elves and are almost on the edge of being vicious when it comes to hunting dark elves. Looking at it now though with using white lions and sword masters i might just go with the blue colors for my armies.

My HE army is actually Black and Red and it goes really well together. I took my inspiration from the colour scheme on the cover of the Gilead book.
At first it did look too dark but I just lightened the red up a little and kept the black to minimal areas. The armour is mostly ice silver but some of the elite units do have gold like in the picture swntzu posted. It also fits the fluff of my army as I also use the DE RBT and a couple of other conversions.
There's nothing to say that all HE are Blue and White as I imagine different armies would have their house liveries.
As others have said though you should go with what you really like the look of as there's nothing like painting half your army and realising your not too sure you like it, (yes my previous attempt at the Blue and White HE's).
I'm at work at the moment but will try and post a picture later so you can see if you like.
