    First of all, I would like to thank Steve for his great demonstration yesterday. The fact that the focus was on technique rather than anything else was a big plus for me, and seeing it being applied (rather than simply reading or listening) was priceless.

    Well done to whoever came up with the idea for these demos, as they are a brilliant way to learn. I've found that simply reading about a technique (blending for example) can sometimes put you off as it sounds overly complicated and could go horribly wrong. Seeing it in action however makes you realise that it's not that hard - all it takes is practice.

    Having said that I will definitely be trying some of this stuff out on my old figures which are mostly citadel warhammer 40k miniatures. I have 2 armies: Blood Angels Space Marines and a Chaos force.

    Given that a Blood Angels' Space Marine armour is primarily a nice bright Red, I was wondering what colours to use for hilights and shadows. Steve mentioned that Reds are delicate and that starting off with a dark base colour is best to finish of with pure red hilights. However, whenever I tried this approach the overall look of the figure always seemed too dark. On the other hand, starting off with a brighter red, gave little room for hilighting without the model looking orange-y and so looked very flat.

    Any advice?

    Wayne, the size of the area will determine the approach. The smaller the area the lighter the base colour needs to be
