Hey guys, how's it going?

So, having trouble with deciphering what paints to use/techniques for my scions. I was thinking of going for the 22nd Theoid Gryphonnes, as the colour scheme fits in nicely with the rest of my armies and the fluff matches what I want (yes, yes, I actually like the primes, can we leave it there please :p ).

So my first question is how would you paint them?
From what I can tell the carapace armour is black/dark grey (Abaddon or darkened down leadbelcher?) with a red trim (mephiston perhaps?). Face plate is silver, so was most likely going to go leadbelcher with a layer of runefang steel.

The fatigues at first also look black but when you shine a light on them I think it is supposed to be an incredibly dark red.

The gun I'm having trouble with, not sure what to make of it.

I've attached a picture of a scion for reference.

Second question is what colour would you go for the tempestor prime's trench coat? I'd definitely want a contrast of colours, so something slightly brighter but not too bright to look ridiculous.

Any help you guys could give me would be fantastic!

Well... I'm not doing exactly that, but for the inquisitorial storm troopers that I'm finishing off with a box of scions, I'll be glossing the black primer with 'ardcoat varnish, then washing it with nuln oil. That will give it a dulled shine like what you can see on that picture and doesn't require the artificial grey highlights - which I suck at.

My red will likely be khorne red/mechrite red, red gore, blood red, baal red wash, baal red wash, nuln oil wash, to give an effect like this eversor:
Well, the plus side of having no life with uni and full time work is that I get painting done listening to lectures.

I got these three done this weekend, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out:
