Personally when I start a new project my main concern with colour schemes is, what haven't I painted before? Across various armies, both 40k and other systems, I've painted a lot of reds, blues, blacks and greys. So that rules them out. Then I think what's new for me? What technique haven't I tried? Use a new project as a way to improve your skills. I have a Primaris project lined up for when/if I finish my Death Guard, and I'm thinking a DA successor chapter painted in bone with green highlights is the way to go.
Not sure that rambling post answered your question. It's early in the morning here.
