Honestly I did search but I couldn't see anything!
Anyway - can anyone recomend a layering technique for my Techmarine riding in a landspeeder?
I was thinking red gore as the core colour, ink wash for shading and red gore+ blood red highlighting, adding a little yellow for the final round of highlights.
I you want the ultimate layer on him which looks so Ã¼bercool when it is finished start with scab red and mix it with red gore until you reached the red gore color. Then start mix red gore with blood red until you have reached the blood red color. You could mix blood red with some fiery orange for the final highlight.
Maybe it is not the best layering technique but it worked for the cape I painted on my EC. :rolleyes: Maybe start out the base color with scab red mixed with scorched brown and chaos black and work up from there.

I am guessing that you are more interested in a good formula for painting reds rather than layering in general.
Just to cover both bases - here is a cheap and fast rundown of layering:
layering is a technique where you add a lighter color over the layer below it leaving some of the lower layer showing through. You keep lightening up the topmost coat continuing to leave some of the previous layer showing. It would look very much like a contour map. Feathering the edges between the two layers will give you a much smoother transition of color.
As for reds - really depends on how you want them. If you want a dark rich red tone here is what I would suggest:
Base of Burnt Cadmium Red (vallejo model color) I am sure you could take the darkest gw red and add a touch of brown to it.
Wash with a brown ink wash
Re-base with Burnt Cadmium Red (leaving some of the ink to show through.
First highlight on to this would be Scar Red (vallejo Game Color)
2nd highlight would be Gory Red (Vallejo Game Color)
With the lightest highlight being Bloody Red (Vallejo Game Color)
If you don't want it too bright then go easy on the bloody red (or GW equivalent).
Here are a couple examples of the above color combinations the second being more bloody red:
