I'm looking for suggestions on Red Spray Paint. I'm looking for a Spray that will come as close as possible to matching GW Blood Red Spray Paint, which is no longer available from GW.
If anyone has found a workable alternative that is comparable to the old GW Blood Red Spray please post with the Label information (ie manufacturer/color name/price)
Thanks and good gaming!

Unfortunately I don't have a solution for you as far as alternate red sprays...
However after having painted up quite a bit of Blood Angel's recently using both the spray and brush on - I have actually found the brush on to be a bit faster. I think the key is to prime white and then thin the red a bit. Using a larger brush go to town brushing on the red paint. A little overspill onto the bolter or other "non-red" areas isn't quite as bad as having the whole thing red.
I found with the red spray that - while you get a good red base coat - you have to go back and repaint over everything. If anything that seems to take even longer.
Now for larger things like vehicles it might be worthwhile to have a spray.
Just my thoughts on the subject.
Slorak, do you mean that you used the GW blood red spray? I was under the impression that it is no longer available.
Also, how close was the match of the two paints on the model? Was it obvious where you had touched up and that's why you wound up repainting by hand?
Yes I still have a can of it - though it is nearly empty now. The quality is not that noticeably different from the bottled paint. The big reason being - I base with the blood angel and then lightly wash them with a watered down brown ink. Then using the brush on blood angel red I highlight where necessary.
Personally - especially for game pieces you can get away with quite a bit and still have some very nice looking blood angels by focusing on the little details. For example - purity seals, weapons, chapter markings, etc.

very tidy looking marines there slorak, are they both painted the same way? The top ones look more "blood angely"
The top ones I painted on with watered down blood angel red. The bottom ones I sprayed.
To be honest you can't put much into the quality of the pictures as I am completely amateur in taking them! I think they look similar enough though and have used both spray and paint on in various stages of painting and the paint on - blends well enough into the base coat with brown ink glaze...
