Now that I've got many models under my belt, paintwise, I want to learn some more advanced painting techniques. Currently, the only technique I can do is drybrushing and, while it's damn useful, want to learn more as well. So, can anyone here point me to a good guide on more advanced painting techniques-highlighting, shading, etc? Any help would be much appreciated.

There are quite a few articles on this site. You will also find numerous articles on the web on various artists site. Cool Mini is good for finding artists styles that you like and sometimes they have their own website you can visit from their gallery. I have a few articles up on my site (as well as in the article section on this site). You can also try a few yahoo groups dedicated to painting - such as Mini Painter and MasterClass Miniature Painter
You will find that most Miniature painters are very nice and will be more than willing to help you with any questions you might have. The best thing is to elaborate on what you are trying to do and ask specific questions!

Once you have mastered that then you may want to consider wet blending.
Start with Dr fausts and link out from there, you should find plenty of articles
well, my reply is: grab a brush, your bit box and your colors, and start painting everything. just to see how things turn out. today i learned to fabricate Space Marine Force weapons out of scrap parts of my Cold One Chariot and sprue parts i carved. Cant just leave so much plastic lying around
the besy idea is to experiment, and learn new tech. but if you come up with something new, tell us
The codexes of all the armies contain certain specific techniques on painting. Like in Codex: Tau they tell us what STIPPLING is.
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
