The base is a thin layer of green stuff with a square pattern scored in with a needle. I imagine this Archon in Commorragh, stepping down onto a.. surface.. that most closely resembles a cobbled street.
The red is done with a base coat of mechrite red, shaded with a black/mechrite wash, highlighted with blood red, shaded with a black/mechrite wash, built up with blazing orange, and then a final very sparing highlight of sunburst yellow. This is the technique I tend to use on all the models I paint.
I am waiting on the Space Wolves. The first consignment should be here before Christmas, all being well.
