    It's all a matter of having a keen sense of what parts of the model would recieve a lighted 'glare' from the fire, and what parts wouldn't, and then drybrushing creatively.

    To illustrate, I'll link you to Undeadair's Necron Lord which use a similar lighting effect (except green) to great effect.

    well what i do is while the plastic is still grey, i shine a flashlight (LED) on the model in the direction of the light i want take a digital pic ,with out flash, and then i paint the lighted areas with a lighter paint and darker with darker, this works well for flames cause the lighted parts are white, semi lighted is orange and no light is deep or reddish orange,

    hope i helped

    I don't recommend drybrushing it, it makes it too dusty and there's less control. It's good for a less good-looking, quicker job.

    The way that guy did it is he/she had to know where the light would hit, and then carefully paint all those areas, with blending. That probably took forever.

    There's one webpage that has some lighted figures. Check that one out. It's called the Miniature Space, by Jason Richards.

    http://www.miniaturespace.net/illumination_gallery.htm

    That's his gallery of illuminated figs.

    I would like to point out that those models were a Golden Daemon entry from Victoria Lamb, winning GD Oz I believe. That's why it looks so incredible, she spent an unholy amount of time on that thing.
