Well the codex has a scheme for Vior'la using rotting flesh armour and catachan green cloth. Maybe a similar scheme would work?

First off, this is in the wrong board. It should go in the Painting Board, as it, naturally, relates to painting your miniatures.

As for a good color for desert cloth, I would say either Desert Yellow, or Bleached Bone with a 3:1 water/Graveyard Earth wash.

I used a White on Black undercoat theme with Red Gore caste stripes. For a desert scheme, maybe you could go with a sandy color or a brown on top of a darker color. The basic scheme is pretty good for desert terrain.
