I'm doing the Tallgeese III blue, green and silver, and IMHO that looks
quite nice. Other color schemes... maybe the Titans colors (one of my
favourite color schemes)? Maybe a silvery/"unpainted metal" color, perhaps
with a little bit of black in a few places?

Vayeate and Mercurius could maybe use a Virgo or Virgo II style color scheme.
