The Khorne Reds

July 5, 2010

I've had a number of people ask me about how I do the red on these Khorne guys - especially after posting the image with banner in it, which seems pretty popular.  Here's the low-down:


Step by step of the Reds (this goes for the banner too basically). All steps (except edging and wash) are airbrushed on:

- Primed black
- Basecoat of Vallejo Model Color Black Red
- Washed with badab black with a bit of Didis Magic Ink Black in it (from the Warstore)
- Highlite of 50/50 dark flesh and blood red
- "Glaze" spray of blood red mixed with some baal red (it's not an exact mix - basically I'm trying to keep it a bit translucent)
- Highlite of Blood Red + Blazing Orange 50/50
- Highlite of Blood Red, Blazing Orange and Golden Yellow (1:1:1)
- Highlite of Blood Red, Blazing Orange and Golden Yellow (1:1:2)
- Edged with Khador Highlite (P3 paints)
- Glaze/Wash of my "Khorne Wash" - it's 2 parts baal, 1 part badab, with some P3 red ink mixed in (I pretty much eyeball it) to give it a nice richness and cover without being too opaque
