    So I thought I'd share some pictures of my work from 2014. I think O&Gs are really cool and have a lot of character to them, so I side-tracked from my skeleton production line to paint something fleshy and different.

    Contents:
    Page 1 - Night Goblin Shamans, Night Goblin BSB, Fanatics, Night Goblins w/hw, Night Goblins w/sb, Black Orcs, Savage Orcs, Boar Boayz w/spears, Savage Orc Shaman, Black Orc Boss, Black Orc BSB, Savage Orc Boss, Night Goblin Boss on Great Giant Squig, Mangler Squigs.
    Page 2 - Squigs.
    Page 3 - Squig Herders, Night Goblin Bosses.
    Page 4 - Squig Hoppers, Squigs, Squig Herd, Army Shot.


    Feel free to comment, constructively criticize or ask for tips/colour schemes. Cheers and enjoy. :thumbsup:

    I really like your clean painting style! And a nice pattern of colors you've chosen. Especially orcs are kicking me atm ;)

    Rolling through 2015 so quickly it seems and I'm still a fair way from reaching my goal of completing my first army. Those zombies and skeletons are itching to get out of their boxes! Just finished these guys:

    Farmer! How have I not commented on this plog yet? Your magic-barfing gobshaman is awesome, and that War Boss is So Boss.

    @Adam_Barrow Cheers man! A very conversion limited army (except for one of the savage orcs with a skull-fro and a few night gobbos) as I was happy with most of them the way they are. Thanks for your comments :thumbsup:

    @Adam_Barrow You got it. I'm still not 100% sure on some colours for my VC yet and am determined to get these guys done before starting on something else. I've got 10 savage orcs (currently being painted), 18 squigs, 6 herders and 5 hoppers. Oh, and a night goblin boss. About 6-8 weeks worth I reckon.

    I really like the orc Shaman from the second post, it gives off a kinda crazy feel like something from majora's mask xD Also that armoured squig and armoured warboss look amazing too great job! I had already forgot how much more varied fantasy O&G were compared to the 40k counterparts.

    That's an awesome looking army! OnG are my 'spare' army, I look forward to tidying them up one day...

    @Crystal Thanks! It's crazy, the amount of options with OnGs are insane! Would love to see some forest goblin infantry though as I'd like to do an army based on spiders and feather-wearing goblins one day.

    @Dragonet Cheers buddy, They started as my spare army too but then developed into much more than that! VC on the horizon though...

    @Crystal @Hellion Nox That's actually the cool thing about VC, that we play guys that bring back the dead to life. In theory we could create most of our units from more or less anything in the warhammer fantasy universe...

    @Farmer7574 So clean painting! Your highlights are awesome. Are the night goblin archers partly converted, or does GW supply the boxes with "arrow-hands"? Because that pose provides some much needed touch to otherwise "boring" models.

    @Sessioni I'm unsure about goblinsbut I know Orc Arra boys come with hands that look like they're going to throw the arrows as opposed to using a bow

    @Sessioni Cheers buddy. Small conversion work in that archer unit, mostly giving all of them quivers and some fanatic box head swaps for a little bit of diversity.

    The hand options for NG archers are: left bow, right quiver, 2-hand firing pose. I chopped a netter's hand off and cut the hands off the quivers to attach to their robes as I decided I want every model in that unit to have a quiver (an archer without arrows is just plain wrong!)

    Another 10 bite the dust. That's 30 savage orcs done and just a bunch of squigs, herders and a few hoppers left to do. Ah, and another NG boss which won't take much time.

    These photos turned out a little odd, I used my desk lamp and it was sunset outside ... magic hour maybe.

    Here they are:
