I use the foundry British Redcoat triad. Works for my ham fisted attempts.

I've been using Vallejo as of late but I'd like to try the Andrea reds to see how they work.

The P3 reds are superb as are Vallejo.

It's just a matter of trial and error in mixing to get the 'redcoat' red to your satisfaction. Should come to you quite quickly though.

Blood has a local connection, he married in Culcheth church and had the wedding party at The Raven just down the road!The pub is still up and running and so is the church. I dont know if it was a keen sense of humour that made him choose the Raven after he's attempt on the crown jewels. :lol:

The ultimate red is from Plaka/Pelican paints called Signal Red.
