Well what colors do you like. I personally am a green sort of a guy. So I painted my army accordingly. I like red so that's what my kroot are. Really you should look around the internet for any thing you like, test paint alot of minis, look in the back of the codex new or old, go to the GW store near you and find something that catches your eye. Really this entire game is up to you. So go out and be original.

does this answer your question? The question should be "what is your favorite color?" that is the color they should be painted

I use Kommando Khaki for the cloth, on top of a Scorched Brown basecoat. The armour is Chaos Black, with the edges highlighted with Space Wolf Grey. Some of the armour plates though are done in Bleached Bone with Skull White highlights.
