Hello! My name is Vitor from the Vamos Ver no Pano Verde blog, and I’ve been into the wargaming world since 2007, having begun with Warhammer Fantasy and after a while being converted to 40K. I own a Bretonnian army of around 2500 points and around 2000 points of Eldar, I also own a few other gaming systems like Confrontation, Infinity, Flames of War and Carnevale. I was invited by Gereth to participate on the “A Tale of X Gamers” project where, over the course of a year, we’ll build a Warhammer 40K army for 6th edition.


Something which motivates me to collect are the models. I like gaming but, as far as I’m concerned, the biggest part of the time will be dedicated to assembling and painting the models and in my opinion the biggest attractive of the game is being able to play with all the miniatures painted on a painted table, but, in order to have that anyone interested will have to dedicate a lot of his time to the hobby.


The first thing to decide is which army will be chosen. There are many ways to make that choice, and that’s something extremely personal. I make my choice based on the models a given list has available to it, as I like to paint them. I’ve chosen Tyranids because I want an evil looking army, and I also find the look of the monsters cool. My list won’t be a competitive one as my focus definitely isn’t the game itself.
