My brother has given me some good advice on painting, and most of the time he gives a good perspective and helps me to improve. However, we now disagree. He's saying the my color scheme doesn't have enough color, and that it's too dark. I, on the other hand, see no space for extra color. Let's take a standard Cadian guardsman, for example. Armor and boots are scab red with lightened red gore highlights. Flesh is dwarf flesh. The jacket cuffs are scab red. Jacket lining is shining gold. Lasgun is black with chainmail details. Imperial crests are white. Jacket and pants are black. Belt is red with chainmail buckle. Accesories are black, save for grenades which are dark angel green.
What do you think? Do you see any space to add more color? He says some blue or yellow would do a lot for the model, but I just don't see a place for it.
I can see what he means try drybrushing the pants and jacket codex gray

Do you have any symbols on the Guardsman's shoulder pads? If not then do a skull, or a number, in blue or yellow like he says. Or do another Higlight on the armor to make it brighter

maybe hes talking about the excessive black for the "details". Choose maybe white, beige...etc for the gun or the belts.
Dark color scheme is good. Just remember to highlight the black areas...
