Yes, that why I suggested Windows backup for free, it has all you need, for free, as a backup application.

If your NAS supports iSCSI Target then set up a series of LUNs for your VMs.

Attach them via iSCSI to the VM and use that disk as a destination for Windows Server Backup.

We have been deploying on Hyper-V since 2008 RTM. Believe me when I say this: We stopped using WSB years ago for a _very_ good reason. It's a real pain.
