Yep, 100% NMM, not a single metalic paint used
Been a while since I've painted Skull Crusher, but regardless, here's its (his?) crew, painted yesterday night. I miss one of them, unfortunately ( http://www.solegends.com/citmd/md02skullcrusher.htm , the one in the back, turning the wheel):

Well, went back to my parents place, I took the opportunity to take a few shots from stuff that deserved it (or so I think).
First of all, I've decided to pay tribute to one of my usual opponents, my big brother's bretonnian army, because his painting is very impressive:
The lord on hyppogriph and one of the pegasus knights (it appears I forgot to take pics of the others):
The hyppogriph used to be fielded more often during 5th edition, had the bad habit of going at high altitude first, and therefore got killed many times by my warboss on wyvern on the next turn, sending both it and its rider down to their doom My brother would insist that someday, it would survive and win the fight, and it didn't fit a knight to not be the first one in the air (as far as I remember, that oath was never fulfilled hehe)
The knights of the realm:
They used to fear my fanatics... Not so much now :/ but the spining loonies are still very useful against the pegasus knights, so they still serve a purpose.
You can also see the two sorceresses (one on foot, and one mounted) on each picture.
The Grail Knights:
Same deal as the KotR, really. Just a tad more scary, but honestly, when my gobs take a charge of grail knights, they can't really tell the difference... ouch!

Next up is the character on pegasus. you can tell because of the base...:
Then you got the men at arms:
As you'd expect, I don't mind them much... On the other hand, scattered on all the pics, you can see part of the archers... I hate these archers, these guys are a pain. I hate them more than the knights, I hate them more than the pegasus, they're aweful, they hurt, they move fast, they have long range, and they got fire arrows. And people complain about all knight armies, the fools, they don't know the true terror of the bretonnian army: the skirmishing flaming longbow ><
And the famed Green Knight (gorgeous model, and amazing painting, the picture really doesn't give it justice. I'm really a bit jealous of my brother's skills, sometimes):
And finally, an army shot:
As they would say in Bretonnia: voila
(on the pics, you'll also have noticed, maybe, my tobepaintedsomeday dark riders, and a black coach. I don't know if the black coach belongs to me or my brother, truth be told lol)

Woops, I forgot the yeomen:
They could have been annoying, but there's only one unit, so it's fine, they're just wolf fodder

Tell your bro his green knight is cool. I especially like the overgrown skelli and the freehand ivy pattern
Ok, now back to my stuff. I noticed I had never put pictures of my pump wagons... since here goes, first, the classic version:
I bought it on ebay, it was missing the front right wheel, so I had to make one from scratch. It shows a bit, I guess.
Then, the current one:
It's considerably larger, really. The piece of cardboard the classic one stands on is 40x40 (didn't have a free base back then, and I still use that, dunno why ), while this one is a perfect fit for a charriot base, as you can see...

A group shot, night gob themed (there's about a third of my night gob minis on that pic I think):
Since it's quite busy, for once, I allowed myself to put a large picture (there's going to be half a dozen like that following in the next days). Nothing new under the sun besides a couple gobs and squigs in the herder unit, I believe. Well, you get to see one of my half painted DoW giants, at least

I love your orcs man. The pumpwagons are very cool done, I love the models and the heap of little snotlings on it. Your brets are looking well too, but the orcs are better =P
Keep it up!
Cheers It's not my brets though, they belong to my brother, and, really they look waaaay better in flesh than on these pics.
Nothing new there either, just the opposite side of the shelf.
Also, a pic of my squig herd as it currently stands (I know it's not a legal setup, and sorry for the bad quality, took the pic with my celphone):
As I said before, there should be a couple new squigs and gobs in there (though you probaby can't tell ).
Oh, btw, if you're wondering why I'm posting those crappy pics, it's mostly for myself: most of my stuff is at my parents home (I don't live there), and I need some reminder of what I currently have, the setup of this and that, how many ranks did that unit have, and did I give my orcs HW+shield or two choppa? Well, I'm getting these pics online for reference and easy access whenever I need them. Voila.

Next half shelf:
Assortment of things you've seen, and things you haven't seen (but are not interesting, like the unpainted gobs of both kinds, or my old night gob archers with the old boring paintjob).
Then a herder team I finished painting yesterday:
With that team, the unit be comes legal... excepted I have more squigs to add... but I got a ****load of night goblin clubbers, they've been out of job for a while now, being recycled as squig herders should raise their spirits
Then final pic of my "classic" rock lobber, complete with crew, and a rather good quality picture, crazy:
Those orcs really are tiny, I put them on 20mm bases. The fluff is full of smaller orcs being bullied, I assume having the same job as a gobv counts
Rather fabulous way to put a rock lobber in an all orc themed army, they're actually orcs, they count as gobs, they're from the right kit, only thing I did is change bases. They even look right for the goblin stats, awesome.
And finally, a tiny something from the same period:
I got 3 of those... added to the current model, there's no way i'll be able to field them all, so the other two will probably serve for conversions. Since there's two different crew members though, I'll have the three crew serve as one crew. It'll be easier to use than the current version, smaller, right number of crew.

Second shelf, second half:
Yeah, so there IS something on that one, the goblin boss on wolf, been painted for ages, seems I forgot it (and he's in all my lists too, usually my general, lol). Note the "hairy" orc in the front, I like that mini a lot, it's rather fun. He's going to be a "goblin" champion in a common goblin unit.

Loads of things I've never shown on that pic, unfortunately (or not, most of it needs repainting), it's very blurry. The inly things actually game-ready there are the warmachines and the boarboyz bar one (and a couple lone models like the gob -see my avatar -or the shamans).

I got plenty more stuff where I live now (see http://www.cobraworld.net/nico/warha...thers/mess.jpg ), but that'll be for another time.

that is an amazing amount of minies looks nice
Why do you have to focus on the worst things?
So much green goodness...
I hope my own Orcs will be half as good.
