so without further ado.......
what you'll need
here's my beloved Tamiya Clear Red (TCR) and my 2 stipple brushes
1 large for vehicles one small for std fig, they are basically old brushes with the bristles cut down shorter
stippling is basically "stabbing" the bristles at the area.
i quickly knocked up a chain axe to show what it looks like on a mini and the white plasticard so you can see the effect clearly
first off take some TCR straight out of the pot and stipple it over the area quite thickly (the next stage will take some off)
TCR has a thicker consistancy to normal paint and doe's start to congeal (like real blood) quite quickly.
once you have done stage 1 wait about 30-40 seconds for the TCR to start to get tacky then go over it agin with you stipple brush to give it some texture.
give the blood 5 mins to dry off or you'll just take most of the red off :?
first up we need to mix some darker "blood" up to give it some realism (it's a bit bright at the min)
here's sort of the ratio you'll need
I use a little GW Black ink to darken it (rather thean black paint that can dull down the glossy wetness of it)
You'll have to experiment untill you get this colour, you want a nice dark red gore colour.
Then it's just a case of repeating stages 1 and 2 with the darker colour
just be sure not to totally cover all the lighter red up
Here's the Dark red 1st application.
Here's the end result with the dark red re-stippled for texture.
Well there you go really simple and i think VERY effective.
Now your warriors of Khorne can really show they mean business :twisted:
