I got the effect by.....
1 start with a nice black base.
2 dry brush khorne red all over till you have a nice tint. But not thick
3 dry brush evil sunz scarlet, concentrate on the outer edges and the raised centre.
4 edge highlight the top, bottom and some chosen areas on the sides of the blade. I use Vallejo game air “bloody red” for this, but that is just the brightest I have.
5 edge highlight troll slayer orange the top, bottom and a smaller area, then add a small touch of flash gits yellow to the orange and repeat step 5
6 add some touches of pure yellow to the very edges of your step5 highlight. Then add a touch of pure white where appropriate.
As Duncan would say “remember to thi your paints” especially for the later highlights.
Hope that helps
