Slaughtermaster and Firebelly ready for painting

My 40k Fight Club 2011 Painting Challenge projects for this month are an Ogre Kingdoms Slaughtermaster and Firebelly. I am trying to get an early start on them this month instead of waiting until the last minute like I did last month.

I have no idea at this time how I am going to paint all the meat hanging off the Slaughtermaster, I have never painted raw meat before. Anyone have any suggestions or tips?

I would do a layer of dark red (gore for GW) then a 50/50 with a bright red (blood for GW and fire for reaper) and wet blend those (or just layer Idk what quality!) and then do either an edge with full on bright red (aforementioned colors) or another blend layer of same color, with a red glaze to tie it together.

Then use either gloss varnish or tamiya clear red On certain Parts to show fresh blood!

Hope it helps!
