I'd say Vallejo Gory red with Bloody Red mid-highlights and some orange top-highlights. But no clue in GW range.

Although according to the very glossy surface it might even be the Blood for the Blood God GW Technical paint as base with glossy highlights.

Mephistron Red base, shade it with Carbaugh Crimson, light up with Wazzdaka Red or Wild Rider Red then add some Fire Dragon Bright for extreme highlights, it should do the trick. Maybe use some red glaze or even that new paint that is used to paint gems to add that extra sheen.

Yeah i'd say mightydoughnut's method is probably easiest and most similar. Basecoat, wash, then highlight is dead simple and very effective Smile

I think the Armour is different between Aspect Warriors and Wyches.
The Wyches seem to be the Mephiston line mentioned, Aspect Warriors seem more pinkish to me, like the other red line that starts with Khorne red.
Also the Gem colour for the Glossy look does sound like a good idea, but i have never used a gem colour, do they work like that?

If I remember correctly, it's a 'classic' GW red theme, Duncan talks about it in the Visarch painting tutorial.

Base Mephiston red
Shade scarbrough crimson (Might be nuln oil but it doesn't seems to on pics, or maybe a lhamia diluted subtle version)
Highlight Evil sunz scarlet
Highlight++ Wild Rider Red

This will looks like more like the incubies on the background.

For a colder red like the front Eldar dire avengers, I'd recommand using a Khorne red base (darker) and then highlighting with colder colors (no orange-ish tints, or a minor hint in mixes). Maybe base color + straight skull white, or maybe base mixed with purple (which will add some blue) like xereus purple or genestealer purple.

Have some tests before applying to final models.
