So I keep looking at my Palace Guards wondering what could be wrong with their appearance...hmmm...
GOT IT...the Locust Icon on their helmet and shoulder pads GLOWS bright yellow in the game. I got some mockups of the figure to demonstrate.
One shot is without paint, one is done via photoshop w/ flare effects, and one is done via MSPaint.
I'm HIGHLY considering painting mine a bright yellow to fix this.
