The Last Czarnian

The Northwest Territory

If he likes all three, maybe he could read some of the background material and pick which one he likes best that way? There's quite a few cool color schemes, really.

'Best' is pretty damned subjective. What are his priorities?

Ease (any of the well-documented founding chapters...)?
Contrast (...whereas successor chapters often have very striking two-tone schemes...)?
Detail (... but nothing beats hand-painted flames on your LOTD or Salamanders)?

I think it largely depends on how easy he wants them to be to paint. With something like blood angels or Ultramarines where its solid blocks of one colour theyre quite easy to get the hang of, but with the more heraldic successor chapters its harder to get a decent paint job.
