Hello Reader!

I’ve published a few articles here on the blog authored by friends of mine, who either ask to have their stuff published here or who are invited by me to share their thoughts on the blog.

 

I’ve recently done so with the “A Tale of X Gamers” articles, and also with the Warmachine starter box review.

 

Today’s post here is another guest article, this time authored by one of the good friends I’ve made in this hobby, even if we’ve only met in person once. He’s the guy who ultimately made it possible for me to get into the wargaming hobby, and especially into Warhammer 40.000: Joao Marcelo, or JM as he’s often called.

 

Without further ado, here’s his review of the Maki Games scenery pieces.

Hello Reader.

 

Today’s article is the Portuguese version of the one I published here yesterday chronicling my visit to Mantic Games in the UK.

Hello Reader.

 

Mantic Games. The name should sound familiar by now for anyone who’s into the hobby of collecting, painting and (or) playing miniature games and wargames as by now Mantic is the powerhouse behind not one, but six very successful crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter.

 

Kings of War; Dreadball; Deadzone; Loka (which is the pet project of Alessio Cavatore); Mars Attacks and Dreadball Xtreme have all proven to be very popular games which backed by thousands of gamers and miniature collectors all over the world have allowed the British company to amass the incredible combined sum of U$ 3.538.467,00 (three million five hundred and thirty eight thousand, four hundred and sixty seven dollars) through its crowdfunding campaigns and with plans for more game campaigns on Kickstarter soon, Mantic Games is eager to deliver more and they sure know how to please their fans, with lots of added value being the norm for their campaigns.

 

But those of you who have been in the hobby for a while longer might remember Mantic as the one time “Ugly Duckling” in the wargaming business.

Hello Reader!

 

I’ve recently had the opportunity of travelling once more to the UK and decided to take advantage of that to visit once more the city of Nottigham in England’s East Midlands.

 

Yes, the name might, and should ring a bell as this is the very same city whose infamous sheriff once troubled Robin Hood. Yep, that guy who, along with his band of merry men, stole from the rich and gave to the poor. His legendary status aside, Robin Hood’s figure is so intrinsically attached to the city and the Nottinghamshire county that his figure adorns the county’s flag and the welcoming signs to the county indicate that’s the land of Robin Hood.

Hello there Reader.

 

I’m quite often asked how one should begin in the hobby of miniature painting. The answer couldn’t be simpler: Buy some miniatures, good paints and a good brush and start painting. It’s really that simple.

 

Miniature painting, like any other skill, is an ability which we’ll develop over time with a lot of study and practice.

Hello there Reader.

 

Ever since I first talked about the first GW perpetrated Embargo I expressed an interest in exploring other wargaming options out there in the market, not because of some sudden “anti-Games Workshop rage” but simply because buying the models for what was my favorite gaming system was getting too difficult.

 

Well to add insult to injury it has recently transpired that from the 15th of June onwards I will no longer be able to purchase from my favorite online stores based on the United States or Canada as GW has once more seem fit to prohibit stores carrying their products to sell outside their countries (they won’t even be able to sell online).

 

It should come as no surprise to you then that my efforts in locating other nice wargaming systems have been doubled and in that search I’ve come across what promises to be a small gem in the making: Deadzone.
