As I said in your other post you can paint them however you think they look good.
Here is my take on this. If you really want to have a nice looking dark red it is going to take some work on your part. There is no really fast instant gratification that will look good.
Here is basically how I paint darker reds. I use vallejo paints and not GW paints but you can find similar paints in the GW line.
I start with a burnt cadmium red. This is a darker red brown color. I am sure you can find a reddish brown to match. To this I apply a brown ink wash. Once dry I paint on a layer of scab red. Then scab red / blood red 50/50 mix. Sometimes I even add a watered down purple ink wash to dull down the red if it gets too bright.
As you can see there are several steps to it but you will end up with a smooth transition from dark to light and the models will stand out better. You will definitely not be able to achieve this with sprays at this scale.

For the heads of my Black Legion berserkers, I painted them scab red with a red ink glaze over the top. It's fairly quick. For the gold trimming, I did a layer of white, then shining gold, then burnished gold. Anything else I tried for gold ended up looking too inconsistent for what I wanted. It really doesn't take too long -- at least for the head. I can see it taking a bit longer for an entire model.
Like slorak said, though, there isn't really a good way to paint a good looking model very quickly. The model will reflect the time you put into it.
There is no hard and fast way but I find the scab red-red gore-blood red combo (with intermediate highlights) to work best.
Actually, who said you are supposed to paint them Blood Red for the main color?
Starting with Red Gore and highlighting first with 50/50 Red Gore/Blood Red mix and then with pure Blood Red should work very well for a rich red color. You might also consider Red Ink, as mentioned.
