So I have figured out an list I really want to play. Why because I love Reavers, they are the perfect embodiment of D.E. IMO. Fast, lethal, surprising, Rarely properly threat accessed by other players.

Simple list:
1 leheaman, 2 warrior squads, 3 venoms, The rest reavers in 6 squads.

So now on to my main point. I am stumped as to color choices. I am partial to black, I was thinking Black, with yellow accents, red hair with pink highlights, very pale or purpleish pale skin. I am worried about a bumble bee effect. The only reason why I was/am thinking yellow was because I have never done it before. Any ideas, even if a completely different color scheme are welcome. The fluff of their founding is in my signature.

If you like black, I say go for black, and keep it to straight black with grey to highlight (to maintain the black).
Then add yellow freehand motifs over the canopy.

A quick google found me this: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/328031.page

Balck and yellow on a Reaver without it looking like a bee! I think if you stay away from strips you should be fine. @Squidmaster has an interesting point though, use the yellow for iconography and freehand work. that'd look great. Personally I would prefer to go for a deep charcoal grey with yellow a little on the orange side though instead of straight black and yellow. Or light grey and a paler yellow. Grey and yellow work very well together as colours if the vibrancy of the yellow matches the deepness of the grey.

Thank you for the link, I am not settled on the yellow yet, I am still trying to figure what colors come to mind when thinking of Corvaanis. What for Loro, and What for Marb. That should give me my three colors, and work that on black some how.
