Conesy’s Guide to Painting Reds

As you can see above, the scorpions I painted for my Tomb King army have a unique effect on the maroonish reds and this is what I want to talk about.

So there are a couple of techniques I like to apply to reds to get a really unique look to them. I always start with a more maroon red then what a lot of folks do. For me, that depth in a maroon is a great base for whatever I am working up. Currently I am using either a Reaper Master Series, which I apologize but I don’t know the exact color as it’s one of their sample bottles but it is pretty much spot on the old Games-Workshop Foundation Mechrite Red.
