Would anyone here paint aspects warirors different color schemes? Or would that be blasphemous fluff wise and ergo frowned on.
The one thing that really drew me to the game was the fact that your army is YOUR army. Customizing is part of the whole premise of the game IMO. You can always write your own fluff as to why your aspects are different colors.
For me personally, my favorite color is red so most all my models are/will be deep red in color. The only thing that hasnt been so far are my dark reapers, which I wanted to make black and reaper looking.
My Aspects always show something from the craftworld, normally there helm.
It helps bring in the overall look of the army imo.
If you want to paint them your own way then why not
I prefer to keep my Aspect Warriors in a similar colour to their fluff counterparts. Normlly the onlythings I'll change are gun colour and clothing its like capes/tabards.
The aspects are pretty much open to whatever colour you want to have them. Myself I stuck relatively close to the 'fluff' colour, but that's just because I like them. Paint them however you want.

For my army I created my own craft world so my first task was to create my guardians which is blue except for helmets and lower legs which are yellow so while is tried to stay true to there fluff colour scheme I also tried to include elements of my guardians colour scheme in the overall army
so in my opinion you should devise you colour scheme first and then try to find ways to explain it later but as far as going against fluff the uniform for each aspect in not acswilly uniform for instance not ever howling banshee uniform would be off white I no for a fact the banshee temple of the ebon bone wears black armour
Different Aspect shrines within each Aspect wear different uniforms. The colours in the codex are just the colours that GW uses, representing the most common or largest shrine. The GW army represents Biel-Tan, so technically the Aspect warriors you see them use are all from Biel-Tan anyway.
Short version: Go with whatever scheme you like.
