and those in direct sunlight...lighting will make a difference...this has been painted with layers(I like that)...a dark grey/charcoal first then some silver sheen with lighter grays in blotches...In a dark corner you would maybe not even see em....it does have reflective qualities in this paint app...but it looks more to me in the gray/silvery charcoal hues than purple...again clear satin or gloss paint and silvery metallic reveal reflections can cause colors to come out at different angles under certain lighting...my concern when asked about hues and such is that the actual color purple for ex was used...I don't see it here...a nice mixture of colors were used...great paint apps for factory here...the worst purple I remember was the DM Baradur

I just for the first time put this on a shelf that will display this(pardon the mess but I've got rearranging to do)...The purplish hue is apparent.... those LED track bulbs are 11 years old...now I'm wondering if traces of a purple metallic was put into there clear satin...I cant tell...tricky piece....but then again even the base on that photo has purply hue...lighting will be the display key for this piece..

The sculpt looks fantastic, though I think it may be best to display it as far as possible from LED lighting, because in that one photo it really looks purple. With Haldir just up for pre-order, and Eomer (and who knows what else) on the way, I'm pretty confident it'll still be around come Black Friday.
