For awhile I was thinking of word filtering all colors (besides OT) to black. Except I'm not sure anyone would notice.

No, buttplug all colors to black+color modifier.

That apple is black, the sky is black, your mom is black.

Funny and still understandable.

(now with links to Armory threads, per Jbgarrison's suggestion)

Solar Federation vehicles:
Grey w/ blue highlights (usually...sometimes I've had to use white or black, or sometimes blue is the primary color)
Transparent blue visors (usually, sometimes smoke)

SF Figures:
Headgear as appropriate (white helmets for most Marines, black helmets for most Navy pilots)
Stormtrooper/Clone Trooper torso, with waist to complement
Blue limbs (red arms for command units)
Black gloves

Dungan Swarm:
Brown, tan, dark grey, and other such hues, with red eyes.

Imperium Constructor:
Black, white, and red (mostly; some units are orange, with green reserved for people who have dishonored the Master Mold), with transparent green windows.

Space Pirates:
Whatever is left over. Red, blue, white, black, tan, grey, it's all good.

I would be eternally grateful if some of the reply posts for force colors could also either show some :pics: or have links to armory threads where pictures have been shown. This becuse this is a sticky thread and people may find it useful to go here to start navigating through faction info.

Just my two cents. :)
