Default Painting the XV83 Crisis Battlesuit Tael 0 Type

Greetings all,
As many of your know I've been working on a converted suit for my cadre that will be acting as my HQ (for the moment), which can be found with the link:XV83 Crisis Battlesuit Tael 0 Type

I've now begun the paint step *yay* and I've hit a bit of a snag and hoping some input form the members here could move me along.

My cadre colors are Dark Angels Green, Catachan Green with Ice Blue sept Marking. Since I was wanting this suit to stand out a bit I was thinking of painting him Dark Angels Green, Black with Ice Blue sept markings.

My thoughts are on these color choices are so the suit doesn't look like the rest of the army and just blend in.

What if you moved all the armour colours up/down a shade?

eq DA Green => Snot Green, Catachan Green =>DA Green + Kommando Khaki

Or you could do him in your normal colours, but do special markings or a different style of painting.

Well I'm thinking of using a more of a tone black-dark angels green and dark angels green color scheme and see how that turns out I'll probably have more marking on this suit.

I'm hoping if I save my pennies I can buy one of those super spiffy Forge World suits for my cadre commander and then more this suit down to a monat.
