Check out my red & black Wolverine - I used Citadel Dwarf Flesh for a base coat and then dry brushed Elf Flesh over that - the result was pretty nice if I say so my self.

My only beef with Citadel is that it's not a very rugged paint - it wears too easily. I got a set of Vallejo because it's supposed to be much tougher and the colors pretty much match the Citadel stuff.

I've also heard real good things about the Reaper's line of paints. ratboy has done some great stuff with Reaper's.

For the customs I've made, I've usally mixed one called "peach" with one called "sand" to get a good skin color. I'm cheap. I get cheap paints and mix them.
I'm sure the more expensive paints are awesome, but I've had great luck in using super cheap paints.

I use premade skin tones. From Testors I've used a Centaur Flesh from their Fantasy Arcylic line. From Gameswork shop I usually use Elf Flesh and Dwarf Skin for shading. Tamiya has a good flesh tone also, but I really haven't used it a lot because I can't stand the smell of Tamiya paints.
