Wondering Why the Emperor Left

So, I'm starting my first major army. My Verdant Stars (Fan chapter) are stemming from my old Knights of Blood project. This chapter is either going to be a successor of the Blood Angels (Due to their past as a legion, the bearing of a taint, angelic, etc), who have a lessened taint, or the Silver Skulls (who were a good RT chapter IIRC, however, they are not commonly in the spot-light.)

I was going for a muted green such as Camo green, at first, even though I prefer the obnoxious Sons of Medusa bright schemes too. I found this picture of a Cata-Terminator on the web. What paint would match that scheme, or create that easily? I'm also leaning to Knarloc green or Gretchin Green.

Any advice? I don't want them to be too "Dark Angels"-ish or "Sons of Medusa"-ish. Furthermore, when fighting Orcs, I'd like for them to not blend. However, when I paint these guys up on the Bolter and Chainsword page, they seem horribly off the color I expect. I've been sitting here for a while, and I have the paint colors I want to end up with.

Do you guys think this paint scheme will be too hard? How would I approach it?

Averland Sunset for Helm.
Loren Forest for Main Body
Fenrisian Grey for the Eyes
Celestra Grey for trim and details, also weapons.
Abaddon black for soft armor.

Edit: And the obvious spam of delicious Nuln Oil/Devlan.

C&C Is definitely welcome.
