    Never done this before but am very eager to try it out, the miniatures for Doom look way too good to pass up.

    Can you please get hold of the new Labyrinth figures & paint them for us. They arrive as a dull grey colour.

    I've been painting mini's for a little while now, but took a break, and recently got back into it.
    I've never thought to do that trick with the highlights. I usually just use a wash, over the color to define those 'folds' in clothing and such. But using your method and adding a wash would be really nice.
    I paint these just to paint them, and don't play any of the games, so that is helpful.

    Well done! Very detailed and helpful explanations and a you have a nice technique as well.
    However, i miss the use inks/washes here. Especially for Board Gaming Minis, they are far more time effective and very easy to use.
    Applying several layers and working up from dark to light colours seems too much effort. I use primer, then colours (brown for shoes, blue for jeans, etc.), then inks, done. Maybe, in case of heroes, some small highlights for dark colours and some details for eyes but the heads of boardgaming minis are sometimes so very small you'd have to paint an eye on a less than 1x1mm area. Possible? yes. P.i.t.a. to do that for like 70 mini-minis? Oh yes.

    … can i use just normal primer that's not made for miniatures ?

    Do NOT use the back of your thumb to whip off paint for dry brushing. Acrylic and miniature paint is very bad for you and can cause nerve, brain, and liver damage. A good alternative is a paper towel.
