I am building my Deathwing Army and trying to be as purist as possible. I just ordered my Land Raider and was trying to determine what color the vehicle crew's armor should be. Bone like the rest of DW? Fluff says that DW doesn't field anyone in Power Armor, but obviously the crew is. Green like the rest of DA? So... confused...!
The crew would be Techmarines seconded to the DeathWing, and wouldn't be inducted as such to the DW.

If deathwing doesn't field anyone in powerarmor, you could purchase some IG crew, and greenstuff the robes onto them. Paint the deathwing colors from there..
Or go with Techmarine Red scheme, and ensure you use the TM shoulderpads.
Older pics have a large number of Deathwing members wearing Power armor. A Dark Angels captain with Terminator Honors would usually wear Bone rather than green.
Later, they decided that all Dark Angel characters were members of the Deathwing, but only the terminator armor itself was bone colored. From that fluff, I would suspect that the crew would be in green armor.
Another option for you, you can use red, since they are definitely going to be machine adept space marines.
To be completely fluffy you'd have to paint the crew red as they are part of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Deathwing do not use power armoured marines in 'combat' but they still utilize power armoured marines as allies.
Remember, the deathwing isnt a seperate army, its just the first company of the Dark Angels.
