You probably want something lighter than dark flesh, maybe start with graveyard earth, this is a good base colour for paler shades, and covers fairly well. I think a grey may look too cold for that shade of armour.

An Answer to your cleaved color question.

Basically just go buy the foundation paint called Dheneb Stone and your done.

I'd start it from a white spray, then use REALLY watered down Dheneb Stone-- remember, Foundation Paint is pretty thick. Highlight it with Bleached Bone and then Skull White on the extreme edges. Then, it's just a question of playing with inks and applying the appropriate brown, green, and red stains.

As a modelling note, I'd cut into their feet to make cloven hooves. Kind of fits with the name, and if nothing else, is very Nurgle-y.

legal altimatum (threat)

This is a quote from the book they hand out at GW "we will help you and provide you WITH PAINTING ADVICE" so all u need to say to them is ":threaten:tell me now or i will phone the manager to fire you!:angry:" cruel i know but its about grabbing life by the horns :biggrin: and they will be like :shok: "OK we will tell you but dont fire us please!" capish problem solved:).

The combo is catachan green/tentacle pink, 50/50. Add dheneb stone to flavor. Highlight with dheneb stone, and build up. Yes, yes there's a hint of pink in there. :wink:
