Hello Reader.

 

The Rumble in the Jungle event was born from an idea that always seemed rather far fetched to me: organizing a wargaming tournament where I lived.

 

Today, after the most recent edition of the “Rumble in the Jungle” the idea might not sound so out of place, but back then when it first occured to me it was difficult to believe that anyone would come to Cuiabá (the capital city  of the State of Mato Grosso, pretty far from the main city centers in Brazil) to play a wargaming event, especially twice. I couldn’t be happier to be proved wrong

Olá Leitor.

 

Toda essa história do Rumble in the Jungle começa com uma idéia que sempre me pareceu maluca: “Um dia vou organizar um torneio lá em casa!”.

 

Hoje, depois da mais recente e bem sucedida edição do evento essa idéia pode nem parecer tão doida assim, mas, lá atrás quando ela me ocorreu pela primeira vez era uma coisa meio difícil acreditar que alguém se interessaria em vir jogar um torneio de wargame em Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, ainda mais duas vezes. Ainda bem que eu estava errado!

Hello Reader.

 

Preparations for the second Rumble in the Jungle event “Rumble in the Jungle II – The Mission” are well underway as me and my friends in the “Clube Cuiabano de Wargames and Boardgames” (CCWB – our local war gaming and board gaming club) continue to work on the new projects we’ll feature this year to welcome the participants for another weekend of gaming and fun.

 

As the event’s date draws ever nearer (it will happen in the 23rd and 24th of July 2016 in the city of Cuiaba in Brazil) it’s inevitable to look back and remember how enjoyable and rewarding it was to host the event and gather friend around the cherished hobbies of war gaming and board gaming.

Salve Leitor!

 

Os preparativos para o “Rumble in the Jungle II – A Missão” continuam a todo vapor. Tanto eu, quanto os amigos do Clube Cuiabano de Wargames e Boardgames (o CCWB) estamos envolvidos em vários projetos para receber os participantes para mais um final de semana de jogatina e diversão.

 

Às vésperas do novo evento (que acontece nos dias 23 e 24 de julho em Cuiabá/MT) é inevitável olhar para trás e relembrar do 1º Rumble in the Jungle e o quão prazeroso e recompensador foi reunir diversos amigos em torno do hobby dos wargames e boardgames.

Hello Reader.

 

Today’s article is an alert to other hobbyists in Brazil, warning them to stay away from a shady company called “Legends do Brasil” that has been conning people out of their money here, selling RPG supplies, board games and wargaming models.

 

This might not be of interest to those of you living abroad, hence why I’m only publishing the Portuguese version of it.

 

Hope you understand it.

 

Over and out.

Salve Leitor.

 

Assumir que se fez papel de idiota é sempre doloroso, mas espero que você possa aprender um pouco com o relato a seguir. O artigo de hoje vai ser, infelizmente, um grande “wall of text” ou como é corriqueiramente conhecido, um “textão”, mas acho importante que o blog se posicione com relação ao que a Legends do Brasil vem fazendo ao longo dos anos por aqui.

 

Se você não quer ler tudo, já resumo pra você aqui logo no inicio a mensagem geral do texto: Não compre na Legends do Brasil, ou em nenhuma loja de propriedade do Sandro Viviani. De maneira alguma. NUNCA! (conforme edições realizadas neste artigo em 05/05/2016 e posteriormente em 05/04/2017 o Sr. Sandro Viviani já abriu pelo menos duas novas lojas, a primeira delas chamada “Aventuras Épicas”  (NÃO COMPRE COM ELES TAMBÉM!) foi apontada aqui na edição de 05/05/2016 e hoje 05/04/2017 foi introduzimos uma nova nota para alertar que a loja “Giant Heroes Jogos” é a mais nova loja aberta pelo Sandro Viviani, logo, evite dores de cabeça e NÃO COMPRE NESSA LOJA.

Hello Reader.

 

Yes, I know… let me save some face and skip the apologies for not updating recently and get straight into today’s post, which for you English speaking Reader is, unfortunately, another apology.

 

So let me get that out of the way: I apologize in advance for making today’s video content only available in the languages it was recorded in (Portuguese and Spanish) but the video was not only very long (meaning a lot of extra time to work the subtitles in it) but also because my grasp on the Spanish language isn’t great, certainly not nearly good enough for me to translate accurately what was being said by our “maestro”.

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.

 

Continuing our sequence of “Road to Mordheim” articles today’s article focuses on the creatures I knew I’d have in the Warband ever since I decided to have a Vampire Counts Warband, and as the title of this article implies, no I’m not talking about vampires.

 

If you’ve read my first article in this series you know by now my Warband focuses on a Strigoi vampire, sent to Mordheim at the behest of a more powerful “master” for some reason we still don’t know.

 

In the Warhammer Fantasy background Strigoi vampires are bestial creatures, little more than ravening beasts, often called “Ghoul Kings” because of their association with these famous fantasy creatures.

Hello.

 

Vitor here from the “Vamos Ver no Pano Verde” blog with another article for the “A Tale of X Gamers” (AToXG) project.

 

This is my one of my final articles about how to collect a 1500 point army for the Warhammer 40.000 game. As I write this article we’re now nearing the end of my participation on this project, but not the end of my Tyranid collection which I think will only grow from now on.
