I use the Citadel paint system for Tanned Flesh. Bugman's Glow (Base), Reikland Fleshshade (Shade), Cadian Fleshtone (Layer), and Kislev Flesh (Layer). After this I apply thin layers of Seraphim Sepia and Agrax Earth Shade to pull the look back toward Brown from Pink. It has worked really well for me for the Pigs.

For the Flying pigs I might suggest the Rotting Flesh recipe. Citadel Rakarth Flesh (Base), Druchii Violet (Shade), Carroburg Crimson (Shade), thinned Rakarth Flesh (Base), Pallid Wych Flesh (Layer). After this I would apply thin layers of Athonian Camoshade (Shade) and Seraphim Sepia (Shade). The Camoshade is great for introducing some greenish brown that will mellow the Pallid Wych Flesh and make the whole model look like dead reanimated flesh.

Hopefully some of that helps.

Here are a few. I haven't done the Athonian Camoshade on my pigs as I haven't painted my Flying Pigs yet.

These were done with one or more layers of Seraphim Sepia, Agrax Earthshade, and Reikland Fleshshade.

That's mine.

I use AV Vallejo 70.835 Salmon Rose for base color, mixed with 70.928 Light Flesh for highlight and mixed with 70.958 Pink for shadow.

I don't have Gracie but I have piglets. Base - Ratskin flesh (Citadel) и Light flesh (Vallejo Model color) 50/50. Then I gradually added more and more Light flesh and some white in the end. Then I use Reikland fleshshade whith Lahmian medium in the ratio of 2:3. Then I painted a coat (I use light paint in light places and pure ratskin flesh in dark places). After that I use Druchii violet +  Reikland fleshshade + части Lahmian medium) in the ratio of 1:2:4. Well, I finished drawing some details - and the work is finished.
