    Duplicating this color

    I'm having trouble duplicating this red color. I'm "assuming" it is from the GW range since it is one of the original preview models:

    Yeah, I tried Mecerite Red and it comes out too pink. Nuts.

    Hmm, maybe try a darker base and put a glaze of red gore on it.

    I think it looks closer to red gore myself. It may of been highlighted which will change how it looks. Or it may of been mixed with blood red to make it a bit lighter.

    I think I know what's happened. Leave the mechite red upside down for about 30 secs and it will turn out like that colour.

    Try it.

    Looks like Terracotta. Not sure if GW makes that colour anymore though.

    Looks like it might have a subtle hint of orange in there.

    Dark flesh with mechrite or maybe it is terracota.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
