    Well I think that would really depend on how you want to portray them. From what I gather fluff and fiction wise it isn't innappropriate to show them glowing with a color when they are activated. To me that is completely appropriate.

    At the same time if you wanted to show one that was inactive having it painted up in metallics is also equally appropriate.

    Now as to the colors I really think that is left to interpretation. As a rule of thumb I paint mine in colors that will most suit the oveall feel of my figures. No sense painting a blue powersword when it will clash horribly with your color scheme.

    Cheers,
