Making my fixed, starting with the bottom bracket

Thanks to the guys on the forums I just disassembled (and successfully reassembled) my first bottom bracket, it was on a newer Specialized. Now that I have the knowledge I am going to start working on my fixed gear. These are some photos of the frame and cranks. Looking to see what type of tools i'll need to get this job done.

Thanks is advance!

Cottered cranks. These are a PITA to work on.
