Nope. I don't work at GW. I have been playing and painting since 1993 though. I started when Man O' War came out. It was my first GW game.
The "hot sword" effect was a drybrush of dark flesh followed up by successively thinner sections of lighter colors. In the dark flesh I painted a thinner line of dark red. Inside that line I painted an even thinner line of blood red. I went all the way up to a white/sunburst yellow mix.
Nice work indeed. Your wife should be happy as hell with that.
My only suggestion to you is to go super thin with the white coats, even if it takes you 6 more coats than you are used to. That will help cut down on the thickness of the white areas. Not that they are bad mind you, but white is notorious for it. Personally, I avoid it like the plague
