These four bases make up two squadrons in Victory without Quarter. This number of bases basically makes a Regiment, although you could still add another squadron to make a large Regiment.

Speed painting Orcs
Below, woodland scenics paint, these paints can be easily mixed together to form various washes. Not just browns but greens for armour, this I use for my Elves but it also looks good on orc armour too.

Brush Bristle Pikes
What I love about the look of the plastic pikes is the spear heads.These are the the ends of the bristles flattened with pliers, then cut to shape with scissors. You can even take the pliers a flatten a small length under the spear head too, this looks good as the brackets that run down the shaft of the pike. Another nice touch is the slight curve you get sometimes on the plastic bristles, this looks very realistic and mimics the way a long pike will sometimes look. Easy to make and the results are better than metal I think.
The length of the pikes I cut to 80mm, this was done by copying the metal shop bought ones.
