Now, from the gasps in the crowd I take it that you did not know! I had a friend that wanted to play Tau, so I made a trade for my Battleforce for some Grey Knight kits. But here comes the problem, how to paint them.

So, what I have come across are two choices from blogs that show how to paint them. And I do have to say, amazing job from both for the steady hand and tutorials! They will help many a painter to float through the blogosphere and look for methods to paint.
First Style: Titanium
This scheme really caught my eye because of the warmer colors on the armor and less of the "chrome" look that a lot of others give to the Grey Knights they paint. It was different, and I do like how it looks. The tutorial is a great one with methods and explanations on what is being done and why.
I have to nod my hat at this one, for sure.
Second Style: Chrome

This tutorial is top notch, and I have to say, it makes it easy to want to do this style. The scheme leans a lot on the mixing Lahnian Medium and different paints to do blending on the model. Making the "depth" of the model more easily seen. This is also cleaner looking (at least from what I see in pictures.)
Both of these blogs are amazing at explaining the steps and reasons why you are painting the colors you are. My question to you all is: What scheme do you like more?
I suppose I could modify both and put them together, but which are you more drawn to or have seen on a table?
