    Maybe you could tell us a bit more what exactly you want to do? Do you want to paint blood on weapons? Blood spatter on the ground? Blood stains on the armour?

    Keep the paint thin and try not to have too much pure red in the overall spatter....tends to make it look cartoony. If you're not squeamish, you might Google some sort of gory pic's for help.

    Have you tried looking at Jarhead's Gallery? He's the first painter who springs to mind for blood splatter! Also Talonicus recently uploaded a big bloated chap split down the front with mucho gore, worth a look too. If you can point us toward an image of what you're trying to achieve it would help.
    Otherwise, it's toothbrush time!
    Good luck, B.

    You can make spatter pattern using a stiff brush, or toothbrush, with a small amount of rather fluid paint on. Then flick the bristles causing a spatter effect. Try it out on a piece of paper or something first, so that you get the hang of how much paint to use etc. Like Mr Inacage said, Tamiya Clear Red can give you a great fresh blood effect. I usually underpaint with a very dark red and black in places and then cover all of it with the TCR. But, you can also mix TCR with a dark paint and put it on straight.

    I would say it very much depend on the state of the blood. Dry blood on a smooth surface looks almost like vynil matte paint while on a cloth it soaks in very well so you would keep the general shapes and contours just the coulours are pale and yellowish in the center and form a darker going on crimson colour on the edge of the stain. While wet blood is rather runny stuff like an alcohol or oil based paint. It only really gets thick after its contacted a hard cold floor so it will run in very predictable ways down an object so splattering a model may not be enought as splatered paint or ink may not run i the same way blood will so i would advice geting a spunge full of red gloss and beating it with a hammer in like a card board box and take pictures as it runs down it and imitate this in your painting. also wet blood is very shinny.

    Caligraphers crimson ink makes a good finish.

    I've never really played much with weathering & gore beyond the occasional touch of rust/verdigris. I tell myself the little knights I paint are all represented in a pre-combat stage but really, after all that effort, dare I splash on the blood or pigment powders? No, I daren't!

    So, inspired by this thread (& people's work that it made me think about) I texted my mate who works at the local model shop to see if they stock acrylic Tamiya clear red and whaddaya know, hand delivered last night, one pot of the aforementioned paint! Marvelous, what a service Of course I didn't get any painting done as we sat nattering for hours but should I ever complete my Pestigors, expect my WIP thread to develop a strain of gore splattered Snotlings in the near future lol

    Cheers, B.

    I'll join the chorus for TCR! With regards to the splatter pattern, check out http://cgtextures.com/ under the "splatter" section for some ideas on what various splatter/smear patterns would look like.

    *Sits quietly taking notes and then runs off to buy some TCR*

    As an aside, I remember the first time I ever tried blood splatter in my teens. No watering down, no subtlety, no common sense, I just gooped on the red paint. First game I played against my mates I was slightly upset by the 'wow, the red war paint looks different'.

    At the moment I use windsor and newton chestnut ink mixed with some GW scab red. It's a bit clunky though.

    if you are using gw only, maybe try mixing some chestnut ink and red wash. it should work ok

    I did think the hammer and sponge was a bit odd, why not just look at some real blood splatters?

    Try doing research and talking to Pathologists/Medical Examiners and Paramedics.
    Now some of them are really sick puppies.

    Generulpoleaxe did a description of taking Tamiya Red and using an old brush, loading it and then tapping the ferrule against a stick, or other old brush, to get the spatter effect to look more "natural".

    That and the tip from Jeremie was to water the mix down and blown fast and sharp (just like spitting without the spit coming out of your mouth) to force droplets from the brush and onto the miniature, this does give more of a gory effect and isn't that subtle unless your experienced with this technique.

    You can also add some blood colour to PVC glue to get a nice cartoony effect on weapons, etc... You'll need to add some water to the glue/paint mix to find the correct consistency. It's a cool effect
