For these I started with the Reaper Bronze Skin Tone as a base with a little Golden Highlight adding in to bring back a little warmth. Since they were looking a little pale at the end I applied a final glaze of Liquitex Transparent Burnt Sienna, an acrylic ink. So far so good. I didn't have any problems with paint adhering to the Badger Stynylrez thinner so that's looking like a winner so far. I haven't managed to rub any off the minis at this point but then I really didn't try to hard either. The Burnt Sienna has a bit of red in it and as Banshee says "red is life".
