Outstanding level of detail on those Nomads. I just started getting into Infinity and chose this particular
faction. My colour scheme is going to be orange instead of red.
Any suggestions on the orange colours from Vallejo I should use to achieve a similar transition or level
of finish?

Thanks mate! Orange is actually super easy to buff to extra juicy, sexy and detailed. One thing though – you gotta aim that airbrush well and leave some spots dark so that finish layer will have a transition to work with.
I would go about Orange like this:
German Red Brown – all,
Scrofulous Brown – mid-spots of armor, to create nice transition,
Bonewhite – just points here and there, small dots of paint,
Hot Orange – again entire thing. Might want to add flow improver even 1:1 and be careful not to overpaint. Better few thin layers than one solid.
Outline edger with Elf Skintone. (I don’t know if all Elf Skintones seem a bit rosy-yellowish. Mine does. If your’s not, mix with just a tiny little bit of Hot Orange.)

I have painted a lot of stuff like this, but not Infinity miniatures to show examples – but I actually plan to make a step-by-step tutorial for this in the future. For now – see the couch in this picture for reference of how juicy and edgy it is:

Just gotta translate shading to much smaller surfaces on regular minis – but you can treat entire armor plate front like a single surface etc.
