Love that Orc flight-crew, Sinewgrab! Excellent! And the plane is perfect with them - there's something chunky and chopped down about it that just screams "Orc" - excellent selection. I think I said it elsewhere a few rounds ago that in addition to all the "obvious" things, like painting, basing, backdrop, and so on, one of the key, and often overlooked, aspects of an LPL entry is the selection of miniatures and vehicles. Sometimes, they go together perfectly, even though they might come from different ranges or manufacturers. There's a real skill in spotting what's going to go together well. I don't know if this plane is marketed as an "Orcy" plane, but if it's not, then spotting how good it would look with the crew was a stroke of genius (or, indeed, converting it to have that look was a masterstroke)!

Thanks!  The plane is actually the "Green Baron" model - I picked him up from an ebay seller about 2 years ago and never got around to finishing him until now.  I believe it was a limited run figure, as I have never seen it come up again, and he only had 3.

The rest are an old GW orc, a GW Snotling, and Kromlech Orc crew.  So much character in the figures...
