I say Scab Red but it is actually Burnt Cadmium by Vallejo - Scab Red is the closest to it.

What route would you go for? I'm thinking of adding Vermin Brown and then white to the mix...

What other colors are you using with Scab Red? It would make a difference, though it sounds like you are shying away from the Reddish/Orange route(thankfully). I would probably add Vermin Brown and increasing amounts of bleached bone to avoid a pinkish tone. Though I must admit, I've never painted a predominately red model outside of a Khador army for a friend.(I used Scorched Brown/Blood Red as a base)

I think in this particular case You COULD go with mixing it with Tentacle Pink...

I am very fond of addig pale yellows to highlight a lot of my colors.

What comes to mind is Vallejo Desert sand. Its a very soft yellow, almost like butter.

I might try that first, if not then add blazing orange and then the Desert sand.

Pretty slow reply, but if you are still looking for an answer, i used blood red, then dwarf flesh to highlight scab red on my sisters. (Canoness is the best example in the distractions forum)

I'd use mechrite red (that is, of course, if you want it to look red).

Burnt cadmium red is the paint i probably use most EVER!
depending on where your going with it really depends on what you want to highlight it with.
most of the time i mix blood red with it in increasing amounts until it pure blood red for the final highlight.
i like to use VMC Vermillion too (just ran out of it though)
