this is the 40k channel, not the caps-locking anon faggot channel of fj, though.

Ignore the colors on the box and go for whatever the hell sounds like it would look cool. I've got a squad of purple and gold Knights myself. It's probably too late since you've already bought them, but I'd recommend practicing a little on other models. The GK's have lots of little details on their armor that end up looking horrible if you paint over them, but are a bitch to paint so they look good.
Also, read the GK Codex before you assemble them so you don't end up with a bunch of unfieldable models.

the easiest way i found was to not assemble the parts 1st but leave then on there racking and the do as follows

1. choose your colours
2. get spray paint in the base colour of your choosing
3. spray that **** all over that bitch
4. leave to dry
5. get those small paint pots that cost the earth in second chosen colour
6. use fine brush to paint detail onto model
7. leave to dry
8. fix any mistakes by repeating the above steps if bothered
9. glue pieces together in desired configuration
10. touch up the spots where the racking was connected to the pieces using the smallest amount of base colour possible (just spray the spraypaint on foil and use that instead of buying the tiny tub of paint)

this is how i used to do it and tbh it can look brilliant but it all depends how patient you are and how steady your hands are. the reason i say spray paint is because if u paint on the base colour with a brush in my opinion it just looks like a child has gone ape **** with a paint brush

Do not give them psilencers.

Are you kidding me?

S 4 AP - Heavy 6?

So you can't move and shoot at your normal BS, on a weapon that can only wound daemons, and can't even do that as good as a psycannon.

Learn to Grey Knights friend, psilencers have no place in competitive play.

whatever you do, prepare for the most badass army in 40k
unless you go for a mechanicum army with skitarii and titans, in which case go on ahead with that

depends how you want to do it. if its fluff i would use Leadbealcher then wash it with Nuln oil. using balthasar gold and i think gaheners gold, then wash it with seraphin sepia. if not pick some colours you like, ask the staff at GW and most importantly. NULN OIL THE **** OUT OF EVERYTHING

I will point out the obvious here, but if you want to get them onto the gaming table fairly quick with a decent standard look, Start with an undercoat (black is a good colour to use), then a basecoat to get the basic colours, followed by a wash to fill the darker areas (e.g. in between armour plating), then finish with some highlights to bring out the edges.

I won't recommend colours, as I have no idea what you might want. Good luck with the army.

If you're going to play Grey Knights, get ready to lose. Most of their stuff is high-points and high-stats, which basically means you're playing a commando army.
Against Daemons you'll utterly rape whatever you face, and you won't be half bad against most else, but with each loss of a piece you'll take you will suffer badly. Numerous armies like the Imperial Guard and the Orks will be able to simply tarpit you to death (that means literally throw more bodies than you have bullets at you).
You do get a whole bunch of cool gear, though. Peace through superior firepower.

Watch this.

Miniwargaming is great for helping to paint, although it's stuff can be rather advanced.
You don't need an airbrush to do this, put it's helpful.
