Default Making Blood

Hi Chaps and Chapesses,

Im looking for a way to create fairly realistic blood. I need it spurting out of limbs and dripping from mouths etc. I dont have Maya fluids, im running 5.01 so i have Mental Ray if that makes any odds.
If anyone could get me started or point to any useful tutorials on the net it would be greatly appreciated.
Im a bit of a neewbie/intermediate so dont go too complex on me

Thanks in advance.

I would use blobby particles from emmiter or surface depending on the FX you want.

I've tried to render blobby particles, and other particles using Mental Ray but they dont render, im guessing this is a limitation in Mental Ray?

So....i've made a sphere with a bloody material on it and used the instancer (replacer) to emmit the sphere. Would this be a valid way of doing things?
Im doing a Zombie cutscene and need something for when they pull arms and legs off etc.
