    Start blue. Ink it black and drybrush blue again to fortify the blue I think.

    I think red works great with the metallic gray. Red and gray just seem to go together really well. I'm not sure about blue, but a light blue will probably look better. More... energized. You can choose to go the very organized military way, painting every Necron the exact same way, with each panel matching, or you can choose the more individualized way, with some having certain panels red and others with different panels red (Or blue, if you choose that).

    If you do a quick google search for "color theory," you can get some general guidelines for choosing colors that will look good together.

    If you have a color wheel, then colors opposite each other generally look good together and can provide a stark contrast where you want it. Colors next to each other can also look good together as subtle highlights, since they won't stand out as much as they blend together some. Colors on the right-hand side of the color wheel (red on top to green on bottom, with yellows and oranges in between) are "warm" colors and will generally give a "happier" impression. Colors on the left side of the color wheel (purple on top, green on bottom, blues, aquas, and shades thereof in between) are "cool" colors and generally give a more removed, sterile look.

    I generally don't like models that have a majority of blue on them -- they always end up looking too bright, garish, or cartoony, to me. If you were going to use blue, I'd suggest a very dark, midnight blue color -- most other blues are just too bright for my tastes. A dark red or possibly orange would probably complement it well as a secondary color on the model. Black and grey (silver) could be used for other parts -- they're pretty much independent of color schemes and can always be applied.

    Anyway, glad you're deciding to branch off from the standard silver for necrons -- hopefully the result will reflect your initiative and effort to make a good looking army.
