    One idea is to base the colour scheme around a world the nids consume, for example if they overan a lava world, have what looks like magma streams over the carapce. A mountainous world effect could be achived with grey brown and other earthy colours. Ive seen one that usedcitadel bsing stones to psyically make them rugged. A mate of mine said his fleet was based of the force that ate perandium, next to macrage. As a result, they are very vibrant colours take from exotic plants.

    Just take something natural and imagine what if they ate it

    How about picking a type of world (snowy, hot, mountanous) and basing it around that. Like I did with the hive fleet Omega, a snowy world with lots of caves.

    well the main types of world in 40k are

    Hive (massed city)

    Agri (farming)

    Manufactorum (mechancus, lots of foundries forges ect

    Death World (fenris, Baal, catachan are all examples of these, but dont use them, theyre to important to fluff. basically a realy dangerous place)

    Non Imperial world include

    Eldar Maiden worlds
    Tau sept worlds
    Chaos marine bases/deamon worlds

    There may be more but i cant remeber any.

    However what it seems to me is that your trying too hard, why not just find colours you like and go for it?

    Perhaps you could go in for an all or mostly white colour scheme. Creatures that live in caves tend to loose all their colour pigment. You could have some fluff that your swarm developed in a completely dark enviroment. They could be a splinter fleet that landed on a world with many caves and developed there in isolation and over time bewcame very pale.
