for my kharn, i started with dwarf flesh as usual and then worked the highlights all the way up to a colour called vallejho pale flesh. alternatively, you could add some white to each level of paint, eg add it to the dwarf flesh, then elf flesh etc. and to get rid of chalkyness give the pale skin a very pale blue or purple ink wash. it also gives it a bit of an errieness.

I'll never really get over the fact that two of my old favorite GW colors were done away with: Pallid Flesh and Bilious Green.

I got so much use out of both of those colors.

Elf Flesh, while nice and light, looks way, way too healthy for some models, so I've tried mixing it with Bleached Bone before.

Mixed results, no pun intended.

i have a icy look on my sergeant as well, his skin is a a mix of thin 75:25 Space Wolves Grey and white mixed with a bleached bone and elf flesh mix, it took a while, but it worked out well. i add purple ink to some areas too, it does look good.

I must say the flash really highlights the flesh tones on him, doesnt stand out that much with normal light
