I've experimented doing red hair on various models, using various techniques, but I can't get the result I want.
I know how to paint hair, I just don't know what GW colours to use, or in what order
Any help is apperciated. 8Y
Burning Orange (or Blood Red). Highlight with lighter oranges or yellows.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Could you give us an example?

Red Gore to Blood Red, fine final highlight with Blazing Orange.
Horseman's got it right on this one. Make sure the blood red highlight is very subtle, or he'll look like a punk rock kid. Personally, I would use a medium brown instead of red gore, but either way should work well.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. - Douglas Adams
Agreed. I'd start with Dark Flesh and shade up to Blood Red, with a final highlight of Blazing Orange. Should make a more realistic looking red hair, rather than the 'I got my hair color from a bottle' look.
Yeah 'red' hair isn't very red (assuming you mean Brittish-style classical red hair) so it would be more logical to try some mixes of brown, red and orange.
I would suggest for relatively simple red hair you start with dark flesh, then highlight witha a mixture of blazing orange and blood red, then highlight with a mixture of fiery orange and blood red.

Vermin brown to vomit brown gives a nice gingery look if that's what you're after.
