Working on the troops, I painted the cloth with Khemri Brown Followed with Kommando Khaki... I layered the two on the first couple of minis and found it too tedious, so I ended up drybrushing the Khaki on after. (Not much difference in appearance, but much quicker)
I then painted the Armor and the weapon casing with Scab Red, followed by Red Gore, Leaving the Scab in the recesses. The problem I have is that there isn't much difference in the gradient of the red, and I find Blood Red to be too bright for what I want.
The problem I have is that if I choose to mix the blood red and red gore, I will not get close on future mixes.
I would love to post some pics, but I am stuck with only my cell phone.
What do you all think? Would Red gore be a good place to stop, or should I shop around for a slightly brighter red?
(OH and YES, I gave up on the eldar idea for now, though I might find the white prome with blue wash technique easier to manage.)
Guess I should have posed the topic header as Tried my hand at IG. Color Choice help? No pics!
Mix your scab red with dwarf flesh or use dwarf flesh to highlight followed by a Baal red wash. My tip would be to leave black in the recesses when layering on your scab red.

Well, I tried something a little different than was suggested.
I took my blood red and scab red, and mixed them 3-1 The red is bright enough, yet not blinding.
I then applied the toned down blood red on the surface panels, leaving hte recesses the darker shades of red. I am satisfied with the results, and believe that it will present a very good table top quality.
Tomorrow I buy a Valkyrie for $30 and work on that.
I will try to get some pics as soon as I can.
That looks pretty darn good sir. Keep it up, I think it will turn out nicely. GW shows how to do battle damage, they use a Blood angels gunship, but its a nice tutorial. Should try that on your valkerie.
Makes me miss my IG army that is in a storage unit in Seattle. As an IG player
I'd say your on a very good start.

"THAT I.G. GUY WITH THAT OVERDEVELOPED TRIGGER FINGER"
thank you for the advise on the battle damage. I was deffinately thinking along those lines myself, but as I have never done them, am still a bit nervous about testing it on such a nice model..
Well it will be much nicer when the paintjob is done. Maybe I will test it on some cardstock or something.
Looks like it came out quite good, Like the scheme quite a lot.
