Yup dont worry about that. I have a can of red paint and a can of black paint with this baby's name written on it!

Also would I be able to use other models say from a space wolves army (painted and based) but as Blood Angels using BA Rules?

Sounds like a trap... But I believe Matt said in another post everything should be WYSIWYG, and there shouldn't be any proxying. But its up to him.

As a likely opponent to Tyranid96, I'd wholly encourage him to bring more troops; to up the total points for Apoc'13.
Paint Scheme isn't really 'proxying'. There could be some Blood Angel splinter chapter with a greyish paint scheme, or a particularly blood thirsty Space Wolf sub-company slowly giving over to the 'Wolf Curse' or something, etc.
If all the models are WYSiWYG, it really wouldn't detract from the game.

My thoughts anyways.

Now... quick question. Are those the only colors (currently) slated to go towards this Warlord?

That's the thing though, even though they are painted differently, he is still using a different model to represent blood angel units. That is proxying. My only concern is that with this many points and models, that trying to remember, "oh thats right, those grey hunters are actually death company" or whatever they might be being used as. That is my only concern.
