A while back, I picked up some Vanguard Veterans for cheap on ebay. I really liked the models and the new Raven Guard rules gave them some great formation bonuses in the game. I finally got round to painting them up as part of my effort to complete my White Scars army.
When painting these, I used Agrax Earthshade as the wash for the red colour, rather than my usual Carroburg Crimson. This gives a much better contrast between the base red and highlight. Thanks to Nick (the Burning Eye) for the tip, it works way better!
