How should I paint these droids?


These are my battle droids. B1, I think this style is called. The two on the right are ones I found hiding in toy bins, and the five on the left are ones I just got on no ebay links allowed The green one is a Kashyyk camo battle droid, and I believe the one-legged one (need to get him another leg) is a "blaster-damaged" droid.
Now, the five I just got appear to be unpainted. For one thing, they don't have eyes. I think I want to paint them, and I'm looking for some ideas on what they should look like.
One or two are going to be city-camo-colored, which is camouflage made of grey and silver and other dull colors. Any other ideas?
I'm looking for designs that are at least fairly serious. No pink or rainbows.

Ooh, good idea. Though they're already kinda Tatooine-colored.
Man, Christophsis would be hard to paint camo for. It's all perfectly straight crystal lines. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
