    Repainting my 'Tearers.

    Hi all. I've decided that I'm unhappy with my Flesh Tearers army when it comes to the looks department. I've decided that I want to repaint the entire army (yes, all 3000 points of it ) so that it looks better.

    I'm not interested in having Golden Daemon standard models, as they're painted to game with, not be display pieces.

    My current problem is trying to find a red that will give me that dark(ish) red armor. See page 31 of How to Paint Space Marines for an idea, as I'm having zero luck finding any online pictures... There's also a picture of them in Codex: Blood Angels.

    Is it Red Gore with Red Ink on top? I tried Blood Red, and it really doesn't look right. If anyone could shed some light on how to achieve this shade, I'd be really greatful. Thanks for your time.

    Scab Red is a nice dark red.

    Highlight with a tiny bit of Blood Red/Scab Red mix and it should look nice.

    How about red gore with a bit of blood red to make it a bit lighter

    I wanted to post a pic of a marine that had red gore that i did on the army painter but the file was 700k

    So have a go yourself

    Scab red mixed with a touch of purple ink for your base color would probably work nice. You could then highlight up with scab red by itself and then red gore, maybe a bit of blood red at the highest parts. That should give you a nice rich dark red.

    Post some pictures so we can get an idea where you are at.

    Cheers,

    -Mike

    ^ sound plan.

    If you don't want to be mixing paints too much, I'va had a bit of success using the following techniques, but it was on (obviously organic) tyranids, and I don't know how good it would be for armour.
    Anyway:
    White undercoat
    Scab Red basecoat
    Black glaze (heavily water some black paint down (about 5:1 water:paint, but more is better), you just want this to collect in the gaps, tinting everything)
    Red Gore layered on the raised areas (may need two or more coats)
    Blood Red highlight (I mixed Blood Red and Red Gore for my 'nids, but a sharper highlight will probably work better with SM)

    Probably a bit long-winded, but once you start a production line, it's ok :yes:

    Definately let us know how you do!
