It all depends on what what you want to accomplish with the black. Personally I basecoat in black, do a highlight with Dark Reaper (Yes the flat surfaces, not the outer lines) and do a Nuln Oil wash afterwards.

Dark reaper is a blueish grey, and it gives it a nice hue without making it too bright. It also breaks up the usual "I draw lines on everything" trend that I personally think looks a bit too cartoonish.
