If colour was influencing the game, it would be in player mindset and game developer thought, not in statistical game play.

Typical Red armies:
Blood Angels
Other Red Marines
Mechanicus
Khorne Daemonkin
Other Red CSM
Eldar Fire Dragons
Saim Hann
Speed Freak/Evil Sunz orks

Fantasy
Khornate Chaos
Vampires

Infinity
Yu Jin

All of these armies are typically assault or aggressive play focussed, but aren't necessarily armies that are associated with winning very often. If the colour bias was in effect, it appears to be at a game developer level with red units more aggressive, but not necessarily better for game play.

Interesting mental exercise, nice question.
