I'm with Falin there on the OS DW topic; from what I remember, with the exception of Tor and one of his minions (who wore no helmet at all) every one of them was depicted with the funky DW helmet. Historically, the vast majority of all splinter groups went out of their way to create a 'new' or modified uniform to set them apart from those they were splintering from or rebelling against. It certainly makes sense that they would have some uniform aspect to their appearance, this case obviously being the helmet.

As for the colors; whenever one of them is depicted in the foreground, in any kind of 'clear' lighting, they have very dark grey or black armor with green, yellow or blue trim. The only time you see other colors is when they're in the background, distant, and that's simply an artistic tool to make them visible, but not focused on. Other than black or grey, I would be willing to accept extremely dark colors, but they would have to be dark to the point of almost black anyway, like Charleston Green.

Brian; I would love to see someone make the OS DW helmet! If you could be persuaded to mold it, and I have the sneaking suspicion you would, I would absolutely be interested in buying one ^_^. 

Also, in regards to the armor; I feel that standard Fett is acceptable, but so too would a custom style plates based on the differences shown in Tor and other DW troops, mostly in the torso and shoulder plate areas. Sometimes they're shown near to standard in appearance, and other times completely different, so I'd call it almost anything that fits the mercs 'modern era' requirement, short of Legacy plates, as those come well after the times.

A projected list for Open Season Deathwatch...

Here would be my recommendations. See whatyou all think...

1) Armor:
  Medium coverage
  matte black or matte green-black primary armor color
 

2) Blasters:
  Canon style, Era appropriate weapon (question say some used an E-11 or EE-3 as a base but customized it to their liking and carry preference but, it's still clearly based on that weapon. Would that be a go?)

3) Helmet:
  Open Seasons Deathwatch Style only
  Matte black or matte black-green in color
 Brow and mandibles MUST be gold, bronze or green only

4) Flightsuit:
dark grey or black Fett style flightsuit with dual sleeves.

5) Ammo belt:
Fett style, multi pouch ammo belt required. Colors optional
(would the famous Suzy's Surpplus pouches be an acceptable altenative? They have the same overall design and appearance when assembled. Not an exact match but close enough on a non face character to not be a kit killer in appearance)

6) Girth belt:
N/A

7) Boots:
Any laceless boots, must have boot armor

8. Jetpack:
Optional

9) Vest:
  Boba or Jango style
colors should be similar to the flightsuit.

10. Brigade sigil must be worn on either the right or left or both shoulder plates (clan sigil and brigade sigils may each be worn one on each shoudler plate. No other sigils, stripping or markings are allowed. If a member is the receipiant of the Ori'ramkad Award, it may be worn as appropriate on the armor.

11. gloves:
Black EU style crushgaunt gloves.

OSDW sigil:

Here are some of my additions/changes to what you already have. My remarks are in bold.

1) Armor:
  Medium coverage
black, dark green, midnight blue, Charcoal grey (one has blue shoulders with black chest)
 

2) Weapons:
  Canon style, Era appropriate blasters or beskad-style sword.


3) Helmet:
  Open Seasons Deathwatch Style only
must match main armor color
 Brow and mandibles MUST be gold, bronze, green (There is at least one blue/silver and possibly one "red")


4) Flightsuit:
dark grey or black flightsuit  (dual sleeves aren't clear)

5) Ammo belt:
Generic ammo belt -pouch number varies

6) Girth belt: (Optional)
 Some have a cloth girthbelt


7) Boots:
Any laceless boots, must have boot armor

8. Jetpack/ Cape:
Optional
Capes can be red, green or blue


9) Vest:
  Boba or Jango style
colors should be similar to the flightsuit.

10. Brigade sigil must be worn on either the right or left or both shoulder plates (clan sigil and brigade sigils may each be worn one on each shoudler plate. No other sigils, stripping or markings are allowed. If a member is the receipiant of the Ori'ramkad Award, it may be worn as appropriate on the armor.  (At least one DW has a sigil on the left chestplate with a yellow halo) Multiple versions of the sigil exist in the artwork.  Will variations in the sigil be allowed? (symmetry, damage placement, etc.)

11. gloves:
Black/dark brown crushgaunts or leather gloves

12.  Gauntlets:
one gauntlet required  ("sword guy" only has one gauntlet, the other arm is wrapped)
must be main armor color

I will certainly take all suggestions into consideration, although there are some that will not make the cut. I'm going to make the decision that the armor is meant to be black or dark grey. The only time it does not look either of those colors is when the character is in the background, which as I mentioned before is simply an artistic tool. The secondary colors (for shoulders, etcetera) are dark blue, green and yellow.

Beskads will be allowed, but not in lieu of a blaster of some sort. One can have both, or leave off the beskad. As for the gauntlets, both will be required, even though there's one guy with just one gauntlet. We also never see Vizsla wear a helmet, but that doesn't mean we'll allow someone to leave off the helmet.

Generic pouches will be allowed, as well as variation to the damage on the Death Watch sigil. It will be required on the shoulder, though. Again, even though one guy had it differently, the group as a whole adhered to a particular look. Crush-gaunt-style gloves will be required. Although there isn't clear view of them in the comic, every mention of them states that the DW wore crushies.

Hopefully it will be finished and posted up soonest.
