Anyone know of a way to kind of dull down the pink, or is it a bit to late for that?

Dull it down how? You can break the surfaces up by painting the metals, highlighting the edges, doing battle damage, etc.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

The picture doesn't really do it much justice but the pink is rather bright. So I was wondering if there was a way to fade out the color, Bjarki suggested using a red and black wash which i'll possibly give a try.

fade the color um not really, you can apply a wash over all of it possibly red, or red/black but that might leave you with a dirty looking model, or you could wash it to add depth and then darken up the pink slightly and just leave the wash in the recesses etc.

I might apply the to the bottom, so if it doesn't look good at all at least the model will be mostly unaffected from the top or the side views.
Thanks for the advice, and yeah if it is to late to fix the color now it can always be stripped and redone with a less bright pink.

Carbourge? Is that a brand or something? Washes seems like a decent idea, hope it isn't a little to late for it to help.
