Default Dire Avengers need color scheme

New Dire Avengers just arrived in the mail today. I need a good paint scheme for 'em that doesn't involve the color white (since Skull White is a color that's really difficult to work with). Any suggestions?

First off, this should really have been posted in the Painting board. Secondly, if you are having trouble painting Dire Avengers, follow this.

...did you...did you even read my message?

1. I specifically said, need color scheme without WHITE. GW's scheme has, guess what, WHITE.
2. I'm not a noob who doesn't know how to paint, I don't need a painting guide. I need names of colors that would look nice on a set of Dire Avengers.
3. I posted in here instead of painting because it specifically has to do with Eldar Dire Avengers. If it really is inappropriate, maybe a mod can move it? thanks.

Following the paint tutorial shows you how to use skullwhite with no problems i.e basing it with a ice blue and then applying the white. No need to have a cow.

You shouldn't be scared of using white - it's easy when you get the hang of it.
Basically just go with reagle/enchanted base coat and highlight with either 1:1 Reagle/Ice or just ice.
A bone colour to the gun usually goes well to.
- That's the standard aspect scheme.

BUT if you don't want to use white, you can use any sets of colors you want!!
I would be more than happy to help you get some colors, but I need to know some things first.
-How is the rest of your army painted?
-What kind of background (anything from fluff to...well...anything)
-What kind of world do they live on (for instance, in a snow world you'd want light blues and whites while in a forest world you'd want greens and browns)

Well, use Yellow or Red as it will match very well with the blue. (I know my collors, trust me)

I do not like contrasts as extreme as those. I think, if you're using blue, another good color would be a different shade of blue, any shade of grey (including white and black), and/or a dark color (like a dark green)

But that's just my opinion
