Hello there Reader.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while now you probably know I’m a fan of thematic armies and scratch build models. The reason couldn’t be simpler as I’m a firm believer these bring variety and flavor to Warhammer 40.000 games.

Luckily there’s no shortage of good scratch builders down here in Brazil. Quite on the contrary, the adverse conditions we face in order to enjoy the wargamming hobby (like the infamous GW Embargo) propels a lot of us to try our hand at scratch building our scenery and models.

I often mention Antonio “AJ” Jorge as one of the masters of scratch building in Brazil, not only because his scratch vehicles are one of the reasons I started trying to collect an Ork army, but also because I’ve had the privilege of painting a few of his pieces (which were posted on the blog a while ago here and here). We certainly have other masters like Socrates “Ken” Kentaro,  Geraldo “ the Orc Grandpa”, and Arthur “Arhurt” Bobany but now I have to add a new name to my list.
