Catching Up: Goblins

Nobody can escape Orks & Goblins and they can be a nice distraction every now and again.
A horde of them came with the 7th ed. fantasy starter set, so i came up with a theme for them to keep them interesting to me. 

These goblins and troll come from the "Republic of GreenSkins", they saw the empires form of government and figured they could do better.
 The tribes that make up the Republic nominate senators to represent their wishes. 
Standard Ork &Goblin ways are used to obtain positions and settle arguments over politics, they do have a particular fondness for settling things with a shield to the head though. ( <-- started by a goblin no doubt. )

The theme is heavily inspired by the Republic of Rome. Each unit has similar colors to easily identify them.  The picture are from most recently painted to oldest.
The banner needs freehand but i have no idea what to put on it so it stays blank for now.
( I see a black horse on the right. ) [ goblin most of ate it. ]
                                                               ( ^ <---- Dat leer! )
( Brite orange is bright. ) [ Brite = Bright in English]
[ Trollololololololol ]
Happily named the flying troll. He stood in as a gyrocopter many a time. 
( He's a little crazy. goes well with his face being out of focus. great job there. )
i think i did very well with the cloth, considering i only used two colors.
( You just had to bring attention to that didn't you. ) [ What, What, in the butt. ]
First goblin i painted and i still feel satisfied with it. I also really like the model for some weird goofy reason.
( He rolls that way. )  
I've been painting goblin skin with only dark angels green and scorpion green. I feel it turns out very well if you water down the scorpion green and pull irregularly over the darker green where light would hit it. 
The dark spots crated by the irregular pulling help blend in the highlighting and create muscle lines.
