    Drybrushing vs Highlighting

    Hi Doug, Okay, that makes sense now, highlighting is an effect and drybrushing is one way to go about achieving it. Got it, thanks a lot! JR

    Drybrushing vs Highlighting

    Hi all, Epic newbie here! First post. :) I am reading up a bit on miniatures and painting some of my own, but a question arose. What is the difference(s) between drybrushing and highlighting would you say? I understand drybrushing and have had limited success with it, but highlighting seems a bit vague to me. Thanks to all! JR

    "How Did You Come Across Reaper Miniatures" Stories

    Hi I'm new to the forum and new to painting miniatures in general. I found Reaper Minis on Ebay and bought them and really liked them. Being a fan of plastic/resin figures already, I naturally gravitated towards these great figs. I have mainly painted 15mm figs up to this point but am now graduating up to 28mm figs. I have been painting figs for about 2 years and I have never played an actual RPG/game with minis to this date. I am just been painting away! Nice to meet you all. JR
