Black basecoat (duh )
Red Gore/Black mix 50/50
Blood Red (two coats to ensure full spread)
Keep in mind that each coat is very slightly smaller, area-wise, than the previous one to show gradation. Very easy, very quick and yet ends up looking quite nice. Was actually trying for something else on a completely different model when I first did that method and the first thing that I thought of once I saw the final dried colour was Khorne Berzerkers. Have a full squad of 10 models nearly done in this scheme now too
Man, I feel like a chump. :lol: Every time I check the Painting threads, I'm reminded that I'm not such a hot painter, despite being the best in town. Friggin' AMAZING Kharn. I really like how worn the brass looks and the simple definition on the skin.
i can find red hard to get a nice coat with sometimes, in fact i tried getting vallejo reds on someones advice and they are exactly the same and a little paler then the gw equivilents. your red looks great
Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate them all.
I would like to say that the mouthpiece is painted very lightly inside and the skin doesn't look near as pale to the eye as in the pic. I don't have a very good setup for lighting so I had to brighten it up a bit in photoshop for the details to show.
Oh and Horus, I know exactly how you feel. I am nowhere near the best painter even in my area, nevermind anywhere else. Coolmini depresses me lol.
