Question, can a highlighter be used for miniatures?
Short answer: NO
Long answer: It rubs off when dry, even if mixed with mod-poge it rubs off. And even if it did not, when it dries it turns to normal light yellow and loses its hilighternessity.
Fluor paints I have tried not only look better in normal light, but glow in that blue ultraviolet light as well.

Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
So here she is:
and here is a close up of her eyes. Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly. From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology. I never had these issues back in the eighties.
Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres. This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
So back to the painting table! Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!
So here is the latest finished mini. What I originally wanted was for her to have a pale-wood colour to her skin, as if she was the inside wood of the tree coming out through the bark. So I basically wanted her to look like bare lumber. Unfortunately she turned out looking like nicely tanned human skin and I didn't want her to look like a naked human lady hanging out in a tree. So then I tried to paint her a little darker and paint some wood grain on her but then she looked a little like a tiger. So instead of getting hung up on her and stalling out I decided to paint her flesh green and move on. So I like how she turned out and on this mini I did some highlighting instead of calling her finished after the Strong Tone wash because someone called me out on it recently. So this one is for you, @Sanael
