Reaper has a "Master Series" paint line (very similar to Vallejo paints). They have three bottle sets of colours, with a dark, mid-tone and highlight of the same shade of colour.
As to your "red" are going with a darker red, as seen in the link; or a lighter red? Is going to be a purplish or burgundy red? Again you might want to go with Reaper or Vallejo.

But I digress. From a pure background point of view, your revised idea of a red and white colour scheme with green accents would fit well with your initial concept, effectively combining a modified version of Farsight's own red and grey colour scheme with the green Sept markings given to N'dras in the 6th edition background.

Oh, and this could help with picking layering colors, if that is something you are looking for.
