They don't have a set colour scheme. They are mainly dark browns and greys and other drab colours like that. Inking would produce the right effect pretty easily.

From the pics, I think the GW scheme is Scorched brown, black inked, but I'm not 100% sure. It's something like that. Also, a 50/50 mix of codex grey and chaos black would make a nice dark grey, then black ink.

Good choice with the death korps. The schemes Ive seen, are the ones  the colonel said. But, I think the official one its in the WD, I dont remember the number, but its the one with the kroot on the cover.

I have my Death Korps painted in codex grey, with some black ink painted on, to tone down the color, then highlight with codex grey. You will have a hard time painting the skulls on the gas masks (If you are using the Steel legion models). I just finished painting all the skulls of all my army of totempf krieg.

Hope it helps. Good luck with your army!
