i took a first go at highlighting and i'm very pleased with how my flag turned out, but there is something about the highlights on my goblin-'flesh' that doesn't feel right. So i was wondering, wich places on this miniature's skin SHOULD i highlight to make it look 'genuine real'. Seems an odd question yes, but i don't know myself
should i do the knockles too? then it seems like one big highlight, wich makes the higlight no highlight anymore (in my opinion ffcourse).
So plz help me out here :p
when i did my goblins mate i used about 10 different layers from knarloc green shaded with black and dark green ink 50/50 up to a mix of goblin green/badmoon yellow 50/50 making the highlights smaller and smaller on the most prominant parts such as the nose, chin, lips, check bones etc. heres a link for you to have a look see if that helps you

If Mr Dee's advice doesn't help, can I suggest you get one of these:
Games Workshop Online Store - How To Paint Citadel Miniatures
Between the two you should be in highlighting heaven.

then prehaps just go with a one layer and one highlight then mate, as the skin is already dark try one layer of snot green followed by a highlight of goblin green mixed with a little bad moon yellow maybe at 90/10 ratio or perhaps just scorpion green, not sure how it would look prehaps try it on a mini that isnt the standard bearer as thats a nice looking standard and would be a pity to ruin it trying out new techniques. but as i said in my earlier post highlight the "raised areas" so the bits that the light would hit the most such as the top of the nose, end of the chin, cheek bones, eye brows, knuckles, on my gobos i even made highlights on things that werent actually there such as the tendons in the hands etc to give a more realistic look but i think that would only look good if you went with the layers not just one highlight
tx for the replies all!
and another question (so i don't have to make another thread):
what do you guys use to 'protect' your minis?
some sort of spray?
