Rune sets for tanky people?

I feel most comfortable with pseudo-tanks, i.e. not specifically a tank but really effective if built as a combination tank and support. Hence, Amumu.

Thing is, the only runes I possess right now are crit-based (thanks, 25 x T1 garbage Roulette!) Which is handy when I get a combination CDR, AS, and HP Janna with defensive masteries (Eye of the Stormed, Fortified turrets that splash = lulz) but nigh-useless for Amumu, one of my more played heroes. I've bought three flat-HP quints, too (but can only use two at the moment with my level.)

What's more important? Stacking armor, stacking mage resist, regen, HP, what? Or is it reliant on the champ? (Again, referencing Amumu, I'm tempted to get CDR runes just to let him throw out bandages and curses more.)

On Amumu? I suggest the following: Red Health/lvl or something (up to you), Yellow Dodge, Blue CDR (one per level, everything else flat) and Quint Health. It really differs depending on the champion.

I would look into getting magic resist runes, as those are harder to come by in items, whereas armor is easy (and not completely necessary in every game).

Heh i play a lot of different tanks, Shen, Singed, Amumu, Rammus.
I just stack health, cant go wrong with that.

Regen, CDR, Armor/Magic pen. Health Quint.

Has yet to do me wrong.
