Default Ulthwe Colours?

I've finally made my choice and ordered a few Eldar pieces. Enough to do a 1000pnt army.. and i'd like to style it as an Ulthwe Army. My question is.. what colours are the Ulthwe? They're darker colours i think, right?

But.. i was hoping someone might have a better guide for me to follow?

I'm sorry i ask so much questions. I just can't really find where else to get the answers.

traditionally they are black for most of their armor, with yellow trim, and helmets bright yellow. It's probably the most forgiving color scheme of all the regular craftworlds since it's mostly black. But ya knows yellow is hard to get right on a smooth area like an eldar conehead.

As Guitardian has already stated, traditionally they are Black with Yellow trim (particularly their helmets). However, since 3rd Edition, an acceptable alternative to the Yellow is a Bone-White colour as the trim instead.

Yeah Bone-coloured seems to be the accepted norm now, but some older forces still use yellow.
