Default Adivice on colour scheme please

Hi, I'm thinking of starting a new imperial guard army
This is a big investment for a broke 14 year old! Seeing as i already have nearly a companies worth of Ultramarines, i have decided to base the army on the Ultramar Auxiliary. I am going for a basic infantry force using cadian models but can't decide on a colour scheme!
I've tried using GW's interactive guardsmen painter but that doesn't help with camo patterns and so on.
Please can I have some advice!

Since the ulatramarines are blue and white, or blue and gold, the Ultramar Auxilia should wear those respective colors.

Well, a good scheme would be gold eagles, blue armour, and maybe a gray or urban camo cloth. Or you could go for an all blue with gold detail.
You could do a white cloth, with blue armour, and gold detail, much like the Scouts

Good luck! Sounds like a great army!

Don't really like the white scout uniform, mine are black cloth with blue armour
Might try this on some practice models. Will also try the urban with blue detailing
I think gold would be a bit 'upmarket' for Auxiliary

lets use our imagination. print out the interactive painer with the appropriate base colurs, and fill in the camo part with markers.

or just use the urban cammo designs here:http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...camo/urban.htm

Take the colours of the Ultramarine scouts, (khaki cloth, blue armor). Then make the helmets white, and eagles, uniform trimming, etc. do in gold. That inlcudes the near invisible lines at the edges, if you can get to them. That would look awesome.

As for tanks, mostly plain blue should work just fine. Maybe have gold and white parts on them.
Hope that helps. Ultramar Auxilia is always cool to see.
