Default Blood Angel Dread

I finally took a break from my warhound titan project to do some painting. This is a dreadnought that is meant for strictly gaming purposes. Excuse the bad quality of the pics.

As always, C&C is appreciated.

From what I can see, you've done exactly what you wanted to do.

Game on Wayne. Game on Garth.

It looks good, and given how poor the picture quality is I can only assume it actually looks better than that. So, I'd imagine that's a super-fine job, though I admit to speculation.

Thanks for the kind comments guys, my good camera is broken so I had to use my backup camera. The pictures don't exactly do it justice, it does look a lot better in real life.

Nope, the way I painted the armor is a basecoat of dark flesh. Then a wash of chesnut ink. Then use a mix of 50/50 dark flesh to blood red. Then you do a highlight of straight blood red. A second highlight of 2 parts blood red, 1 part snakebite leather, and 1 part elf flesh. You then do a final highlight of 1 part blood red, 1 part snakebite leather, and 1 part elf flesh. You then give it a glaze with red ink.

Very nice thanks for posting your ratios on doing red
A question on the highlights is the finally highlight darker than the second because you have a 1-1-1 ration on the final highlight and on the second its 2-1-1 that Blood red to Snake Bite Leather to Elf Flesh
