It says in the book to gloss varnish the armour, i will do that but i dont knowq that colour to paint the armour.. it doesnt say (red obviously but what colour red? scab? gore? blood?) what colour is it painted in the book?
why the hell wont anuone answer, its a simple question!
come on......OK WHAT COLOUR DO U GUYS PAINT UR KHORNE LORD THAT LOOKS GOOD???
I would suggest using the subject of your question in the header. I am guessing you were referring to painting up Khornate armor. If you are going for a brighter red I would suggest starting with a fairly dark base coat of red - like a gore red, wash with brown ink in the recesses. Highlight up to a fiery orange color (just at the highest edges of the armor), and re wash the armor with a red ink for a red vibrancy.
I would highly recommend against gloss coating the armor. It doesn't look right. If you are going to varnish your figures (which in and of itself is a great idea) I would spray a coat or 2 of Krylon Crystal Clear varnish followed by a couple of coats of Testor's Dullcote varnish which dries dead flat and takes away all shinyness. Trust me that models look much better at that scale when they are not shiny. The reason for using the krylon first is the shinier the varnish usually the more durable it is. That way you get a good durable coat with the krylon and finish with a flat coat of Testor's Dullcote.
Hope this was informative.

When I painted my Khorne Chaos warriors, I started off with a black undercoat, followed by scab red. I then used thin coats of red gore on the majority of the armor plates, followed by a few thin coats of blood red on a smaller portion of the plates. Next was a single watered down highlight of blazing orange on the edges of the armor. I coated my armor with brush on gloss varnish to avoid getting gloss on the cloth areas, and then sprayed the model with a thin matte finish. The result was a slightly reflective, and damn good looking ( ) red armor. I'll post a picture if you want, but my camera is CRAP and the picture doesn't show do the armor (or the entire model for that matter) justice.
I really am great, aren't I?
