    Go to the skins section and find any Lich/Blood Mage skin and you'll see the correct path on the download page.
    Example: astro_Hero_BloodElf

    If you go to the link I posted, you'll see that there's nothing that tells the import paths. If it did, I wouldn't be having a problem

    If you have the model file, you can check the path by using MDXPather.

    There is no model. It's just the skin

    These are the paths for Kael and Kel'Thuzad:

    Textures\Hero_BloodElf.BLP
    Textures\HeroLich.BLP

    Note: At first, the Kel'Thuzad skin might not work properly. Go to the Kel'Thuzad's "Art - Model File" field in the object editor and put ".mdl" in the end of it, or you can uncheck "The Frozen Throne" from the "Art - Model File - Extra Version" field.

    You might want to download Mago's Model Editor, because it contains an MPQ Browser, and there you'll be able to select the standard units and check their textures/skins paths via Texture Manager.

    :hohum:All custom Lich/Blood Mage skins use the same path. That's why I said you should just find any Lich/Blood Mage skin and just copy the import path. If that's too much work, BloodSoul spelt it out for you.

    Huh, interesting. I was thinking that they would use Kelthuzad, Kaelthas names, since those are the names of the files

    They use the same textures as the standard Lich and Blood Mage. Kel'Thuzad and Kael are just names they have in the campaign.

    I found a few more in those folders that I might want to use. Especially the Guard skins and maybe the knight. Would I just do Textures\Footman and Textures\Knight?

    There are 4 guard skins in that folder. What if I wanted to use more than one?
