I think the pinkish tone is likely a camera issue; I'm starting with a fairly dark red, so in real light they look pretty dark.

I'll add the wash to my paint scheme, thanks for the advice! Though I'm pretty far from the nearest hobby shop, so I'll probably be using standard black paint watered way the hell down...

I'm starting with a plain black undercoat, basecoating with Red Gore and a light drybrush of Blood Red for highlight, though I might add a darker wash to the armor as well as the cloth.

I'll grab some ASAP; these are standard upload size for Photobucket so I've just been lazy

I just got back from work, so it'll be hobby time very soon here...another update to follow later tonight.
