Hello Folks.

 

This is my 5th article from a series about “A Tale of X Gamers – ToXH” where I’ll build a 2000 point Ork army for the Warhammer 40K game.

 

On the previous month I finished panting my Warlord, Ghazghkull Thraka. This month I haven’t painted anything new, but I do have something to share with you readers. One of these days when I went for a game on Gereth’s house something really unpleasant happened.

 

Ever since I began gaming, I had always transported my miniatures in a regular box, without any sort of protection. The models were loose inside the box.

Hello folks.

 

This is my fourth article from a series about “A Tale of X Gamers – ToXH” where I’ll build a 2000 point Ork army for the Warhammer 40K game.

 

On the previous article I presented my full army list and miniatures set. I’ve opted to purchase all the miniatures I’d need to build my army on the first months of the project, which will allow me to start playing games right from the start with my battle brothers.

 

Now all that’s left to do is painting.

Hello folks.

 

Continuing the series of articles of the “A Tale of X Gamers” – ToXG, I’m back to relay to you my experience on my third month of the challenge of building an Ork army of 2000 points for Warhammer 40.000.

 

Last month I finished painting the miniatures from the Assault on Black Reach basic box (20 Ork Boys, 5 Ork Nobz and 1 Warboss) and also finished assembling the ones from the Battleforce, the Lootas, Big Mek and extra Boys purchased off Ebay.

 

This month I have received some new items bought on Ebay to increase the army. Thus I’ve spent my free time assembling and organizing the new army.

Hello there Reader.

 

It’s not like I’ve only been toying with Chaos Space Marines for the ongoing “A Tale of X Gamers” series of articles. I do paint and work on other stuff and today’s post is about my latest work.

 

You’ve probably seen some Black Templar’s models here on the blog before. Most of them were painted for a friend’s army to which I’ve been asked to paint a few additions to. Valter, the friend in question, has asked me to assemble a couple of Rhinos/Razorbacks for him as additions to that army, and while assembling them I felt like painting a bit and so, completed this Rhino over the course of two days.

Hello guys.

 

Continuing the series of articles for the “A tale of X Gamers” – ToXG, I come forward to relay to you Reader me experience during the second month of this challenge of building a 2000 point ork army.

 

So, before we go on, a quick recap: On the first month I’ve painted 16 Ork Boys and 3 Deffkoptas from the old 5th Edition Starter set, Assault on Black Reach, which total 231 points.

 

The plans for my second month were to finish painting the miniatures from the AoBR box and to purchase some new units and that’s exactly what happened.

Hello, my name is Caco, actually that’s not my name but I prefer being called that instead of Carlyle.

 

I’m 40 years old and have been into the miniature and model making hobby for at least 20 years, however it was only 5 years ago that the hobby managed to grow to a certain size in Brazil allowing us to better enjoy all aspects of the game. That coupled with an economy that allowed international purchases through the internet and the hobbyists in an age range of 25 to 50 years, already financially settled, allowed us to follow the international new releases with little to no delay.

 

Based on that and with the arrival of Warhammer 40K’s 6th edition I decided to accept the invitation of my friend Estevao (the owner of the blog) to assemble a completely new army from scratch in the light of the new rules brought by the 6th edition. A mission given is a mission fulfilled so I accepted his invitation and will write here each month about the progress I’ll make in acquiring new models, assembling, converting and painting them.
