Olá Leitor!

 

Se você acompanha nossas redes sociais já viu em primeira mão lá em nossa página no Facebook a nota anunciando que os produtos da Games Workshop vão voltar a ser distribuídos no Brasil por intermédio de um novo importador/distribuidor nacional.

 

 

 

Já estava na hora de condensar toda essa informação em um artigo aqui no The Painting Frog. Essa é a segunda vez que me sento para compartilhar com vocês a noticia de que a Games Workshop esta chegando no Brasil, em mais um capítulo dessa relação inconstante ao longo dos anos entre a companhia e a comunidade brasileira.

Hello Reader!

 

If you’re already following the blog’s social media channels, you’ve probably seen our note about Games Workshop getting distributed in Brazil again as it was published back in January on our Facebook page (if you haven’t yet, like our page there to keep up to date with our news).

 

 

 

So after publishing snippets for a while I felt it was high time I put all this information together on an article here on the “The Painting Frog” blog. This is actually the second time I put pen to paper (actually fingers to the keyboard) to write about Games Workshop’s products being made available in Brazil by means of a local importer and distributor, in yet another chapter in the relationship between GW and the local hobby community devoted to the company’s games.

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”.

Salve Leitor!

 

Com o artigo de hoje fazemos uma breve pausa na sequência de artigos da série “Visiting Britain’s Lead Belt”, deixando Nottingham por hora e visitando outra localidade da Inglaterra.

Hello Reader.

 

We’ll have a quick break on the series of articles chronicling my visit to the city of Nottingham and the wargaming companies based there to see something different today.

 

One the things I have learned over the years is to cherish the little things we take for granted, like well baked bread, popsicles and good quality ice-cream and even potato chips (no wonder why I’m fat right?). Did you ever run out of paint in the middle of a paintjob you were really keen on, so you had to dress up and make a quick trip either to the nearby Games Workshop store or your local friendly game store for that pot of Devlan Mud? Yes, I know you would relate. Ever imagined not having a store nearby to pick up your paint from?

 

What if I told you than when I run out of paint I have to wait MONTHS till I’m able to replace it? Sounds unreal right? Well, that’s the reality of us hobbyists in Brazil, as we have no local GW stores, and almost no existing FLGS carry paint and other hobby articles.

Hello Reader.

If you live abroad you probably know a couple of clubs devoted to gaming right? From what I understand in some foreign countries the associative spirit is encouraged from an early age, starting in schools which promote many “interest clubs” ranging from book clubs, debate clubs and math teams to varied hobby clubs and gaming clubs.

It’s no secret that clubs have a great social aspect not only promoting the interaction between members, and the opportunity to exercise their common interest, but also being a reassuring factor to members showing that no matter how “weird” your hobby/personal interest may be, there’s others out there who share your passion, even if it’s sock sniffing (ok, there might not be clubs around for THAT!).

Well, for some reason I can’t fathom clubs are not that common in Brazil. We do have tennis clubs pretty much everywhere (go figure right? Every small town I’ve lived in for the last 8 years had one) with their inevitable tennis courts and swimming pools, and we do have some schools which encourage its students to form student councils but the hobby clubs are almost non-existent in schools.

So it should come as no surprise to you that gaming clubs are a recent innovation in the hobby scenario in Brazil but fortunately more and more wargamers around the country are feeling the need to associate and clubs are appearing all over the country. We went from a single club scenario, the now extinct “Martelo de Guerra” (“Warhammer” in English) in Rio de Janeiro, to a multi-club one in the space of a few years.
