I'm working on modelling this guy, and would like to know how to best sculpt the limbs to show muscle tone. So far I've used the latice tool a bit and the sculpt geometry tool a lot.
Are there any techniques people use that are particularly effective besides those I've listed?

Actually that's the problem we've been having for a few years here. There are tons of threads about some great tutorials, but a lot of them date back to '02 or '03, so some of the ones I have needed have been old links that don't work anymore. Perhaps whenever some people have time, we can update them all. I'd be glad to help if someone would like me to (just PM me what you'd need me to do to help update the lists). :)
