I am trying to think of how to paint my Bloodletters black with red scales. I have obvisously started with a black undercoat but from here I am lost.
I want to "shade" it a bit more than it is but I want to keep the black skin. The only thing that I can think of is to use a mixture of Choas Black and Fortress Grey and slowly pull it out.
Does anyone have any other ideas that might be better?

You could use a gloss varnish on it, I think gloss over black normally looks pretty good without many highlights, if any.

I would basecoat with a mix of Chaos Black and just a tiny bit of gray. Then shade with Chaos Black. And at last highlights with more gray mixed into Chaos Black.
How about highlighting the Black up with Red? Keep it dark and it should look like their made of Black/Red obsidian or Hot coals.
The way i highlight my 'Glossy' black is;
Chaos Black/Regal Blue 50/50
Chaos Black/Regal blue 25/75
Add to that mix Shadow Grey 50/50
Mix/Shadow Grey 25/75
For a final harsh highlight 50/50mix of Shaow and white.
If you just want a Grey Black use;
Adaptus Battle Grey/Chaos Black
Adaptus Battle Grey
Go for a red highlight on the black as Lord Borak mentioned.
There is an example on pg60 of the 40k daemon book and pg70 of the fantasy daemon book. These look great and i was trying to paint some of these for a paint comp about 2 weeks ago, but failed and went with the red.
I have a friend who used a grey and it really does't look nice, but that's just my own opinion.
Thanks for all the ideas, defintely helpful.I never really thought of looking in the book, thinking that it was beyond my skill level, but hey you got to start somewhere...right?There is an example on pg60 of the 40k daemon book and pg70 of the fantasy daemon book.
