hmm..... 50/50 scab red/blood red would do for soft highlights or straightblood if you want very stark highlights.

depends on if you are goin to do more then 1 HL, I in person only do 1 Hl so I line them on the edges, but several that I know drybrush them and HL in 4 or 5 layers!

What im saying is that it depends on how much time you are willing to spend on rank and file units!

for RAF I usually just paint lines, but for characters and sarges I think its god to go the extra and drybush some layers.
