I am a bit tired of mixing yellow with red when highlighting red clothing.




Can someone please tell me how they highlight red without that orange/yellow tone?


Thanks pig

You can always use PINK

Haha, I agree with you, it is really really hard. I have two different ways I to do it, either the standard way with yellow and red and now and then a little white in it. The second way is that I have bought 6 different tones of red paint so that I can use a lighter red on a darker Razz Not so good for your economy but it gives a better result...

As above; highlight dark red with light red. I use Red Gore and Blood Red and they complementary each other quite nice. You can always use something like bleached bone on the thinest lines; I've see this on Blood Angels SM and it gives nice final touch on the most vital points like armour edges.

Hehehehehe I can remember that I did it the first time I tried to highlight a mini. Just added white to red, somehow it did not work Razz


But now I got it, need to invest in an darker shade of red.

I've found the GW washes invaluable in my painting - the trick to effective highlighting is effective shading. If you can drag your shadows down deeper, it makes your highlights pop higher.

For red, I'll use one of three washes : Devlyn Mud if I want a dirty looking red, Baal Red if I want a rich looking red, or Leviathan Purple if I want a regal looking red. One way or another, the combo is usually to paint the base shade of red, wash it with one of the above washes, and then hit it with glazes of my base red again. If I need higher highlights than that, I've got a red-orange that I'll water down quite a bit and glaze that on until I've highlighted it to where I need it.

hi

I either highlight with the standard red/orange scheme, sometimes adding yellow as well
or I work on a black basecoat and start with scab red+black and highlighting with scab red / scab + blood red / blood red
as ebon tower I also use washes and glazes for blending the different stages
if you don't have washes, you can use paint that's really thinned down (better 3 layers of a thin glaze than applying one glaze/wash that's too thick or dark)
(I like to add some floor polish for better flowing)

I think there's some red in my two witchhunter threads ("some witchunters" and "witchhunters ? not quite")

A lot depends on whether you want a bright or a dark red

hope this helps
