Well to give myself a bit of a challenge (not only on the painting side but on the gaming side as well) I've decided to do a Thousand sons army. The only problem is that I don't really think their Colour scheme suits the fact they are Entombed Automatons. So with that in mind my TS will be a Worn metallic brassish colour with Either a blue or black robe/tabbard.
So which will look better? At the moment I'm leaning toward blie as it reflects their alligiance to Tzeentch. But I think black will look awesome too.
So Black Blue or Other?
If you're set on blue I'd suggest Midnight Blue. I think it'd really complement the Brass color & would be a good background color for any highlights you may decide to do to the model.
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
black looks more evil and chaossy, so i voted that, and also, you can make it look however you want as it can be highlighted however you want for differant affects: brown for leather, red for an evil glow(what i've done on my nids bodys), blue to look like the night sky, or whatever, so you could use both ideas at once there! but at the end of the day, it's youre decision, as you're tha guy who's going to be painting and using them, so you need to like them.
if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.
Blue would be easier to highlight as black can tend to be a difficult color to highlight smoothly without looking too cartoony.
Good route to go would be to start with a darker midtone blue, wash it with a mix of mostly blue with a touch of black ink (to get it a bit darker), re-highlight up with base color and keep adding successivly lighter shades of blue to your desired effect. You can alwasy go over the end result with a watered down straight blue ink to get a more rich blue.

i think dark green would look pretty cool, and there are lots of shades for hilighting
what about black paint with blue pearlessence powder mixxed in?
Take my words with a grain of salt, i am not the tactical genius i think i am!
i think the blue will go nice with the brass colour of the armor
