Ive never made a model, but plan too. As far as I figure, use 3d studio max, it has a lot of tutorials as well as animation tools(Character studio) But if your like most people who cant afford such programs, I always look at 3d modelling magazines because they sometimes have cd,s on the cover with demos and out of date full version programs. I have no idea of your modelling experience so just in case you dont know it http://www.3dcafe.com has a few tutorials on game character modelling, as well as the basics.
