Hello Reader!

 

Playing miniature games is always our escuse to meet, so, as usual, with Marcos coming to visit Brazil it was high time we organized something to get together with our friends in Sao Paulo and play a couple games.

 

Last time we had Marcos around we held the 1st PAPOCON, the first meeting from the do Papo de Mesa Podcast (the podcast me and Marcos host) held at the “Clube Paulista de Wargames” (the Sao Paulo wargaming club), so it was natural to think about holding the 2nd PAPOCON this time… but the hard truth is that the podcast isn’t being published as often as we’d like as we’re struggling to find the time to record and edit new episodes, so calling this meeting a PAPOCON was almost like salting our own wounds .

Olá Leitor!

 

Jogar bonequinhos é sempre a desculpa que usamos para nos encontrar, então, como de costume, com uma nova visita do “Ultra”Marcos ao Brasil é claro que tínhamos que organizar algo para nos reunirmos.

 

Da última vez rolou a 1ª PAPOCON, o primeiro encontro do Papo de Mesa Podcast (programa do qual somos hosts) sediado lá no Clube Paulista de Wargames, então era natural que tivéssemos a 2ª PAPOCON… mas a verdade é que o Papo de Mesa Podcast anda estacionado diante da falta de tempo para editar e gravar novos episódios, então chamar esse encontro de PAPOCON parecia meio despropositado.

According to the bets being placed this article should see the light of day sometime around 2017, but in order to contradict the naysayers I’m publishing it today, little over a month after the Rumble in the Jungle was held. I do like to contradict prognostics.

Hello Reader!

 

This is the article everyone could see coming from a mile away, but it ended up taking me more than a year to write this. It seems I’m perfecting the art of taking a while to write articles here on the blog.

 

Joking aside I do have a gestating period when it comes to writing articles like this. While some are born in the spur of the moment and seem to write themselves in a flash, others take their time inside my head, and this apparently is one of the latter.

Salve Leitor!

 

Este é o artigo que todo mundo sabia que eu teria que publicar aqui, mas que levou mais de um ano para nascer. É parece que eu estou me aperfeiçoando cada vez mais na arte de me enrolar para publicar novos artigos aqui no blog.

 

Acontece que cada artigo aqui no blog passa por um período de gestação, alguns são concebidos e nascem muito rápido, outros parecem estar sendo gestados por um elefante e esse foi o caso do artigo final da série “Visiting Britain’s Lead Belt”.

Hello!

 

We’re here with my last article for the “A tale of X Gamers” series created by the “The Painting Frog” blog.

 

We get now to the end of this journey which has been unfolding for more than a year, during which I collected and painted these figures for the Warhammer 40.000 game. On this last step of the road I have completed the painting process of 36 Termagaunts which I needed in order to properly field the Tervigon without making use of proxies.

Hello Reader.

 

I will often mention in articles here on the blog and on conversations about the hobby that miniature painting is a skill to be learnt and practiced like any other ability.

 

It should come as no surprise that the internet is today one of the largest repositories of information about pretty much any subject the human mind might be interested in, and miniature painting wouldn’t be the exception to that rule. There’s online forums devoted to the subject, written tutorials published on blogs, video ones uploaded to Youtube, so it is only a matter of sitting down in front of the computer screen and do some research before finding a way to teach yourself that new painting technique.

 

But what should one do if the internet is down and the painting muse has been ringing those bells inside your head? Call me old fashioned but I’m a huge sucker for books. There is some intrinsic form of magic about handling tomes of knowledge, and a very special kind of magic when the book is about miniatures.
