Hey all, this is actually one of my first trips to the painting portion of LO, so forgive me if this has been posted in the past (as it probably has).
I recently (and finally) figured out a paint scheme that I like for my Tyranid force, and now the long and grueling task of repainting all of them (well over 200 models, probably over 300) begins. As I was painting the flesh portions, I had to thin out the Gory Red that I had put on a card I got from a store (those free membership things make great palettes) with some water. After I thinned it out and applied a good amount of my paint/water mixture, I found that the paint had a tendency to be "darker" in the recesses and pits of the flesh, and the effect I think was so great because of the white primer coat I was painting on. Like I said, this has probably been mentioned countless times and is used by the LO painting devotees on a regular basis (heck, you've probably found a better, cheaper easier way to get the same result) but I thought that the advice would be appreciated by a 40k player like myself who has just recently gotten serious about his painting.
