The colors on this model do seem to appear darker IRL.
But client did requested to see some pictures of his avatar..so here they are!
If you are interested to know, the paint scheme on this model was executed using the following tutorial by idic beer:
The red parts were painted very much to match the rest of the army's color scheme(similarly to the purple on nick's model).
Hope you enjoyed!
And until next time, happy hobbying!
