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”.

Do check it out today if you missed it by any reason.

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 there Reader.

 

I know it’s been a while since my last update but that doesn’t mean I have been idle. Quite on the contrary, I’ve been producing a lot in the hobby front, and that’s exactly why I have decided to surf the inspiration wave while it lasts to produce as much content as I can.

 

So fret not, new articles, reviews and showcases are coming.

 

For the time being I’d like to share with you something that’s been in the oven for a good while now, but that I found the time to work on while working on another video.

Hello there Reader.

 

This is a quick post Just to let my readers know we have published a new episode of the “Papo de Mesa Podcast”, the Brazilian podcast about wargames, board games miniature painting and collecting and other “nerdy” topics.

 

This week’s episode is about the 1st PAPOCON, the first event/encounter promoted by the “Papo de Mesa Podcast” in order to meet and game with friends and listeners of the show (we did write about it here on the blog the other day).

Salve Leitor.

 

Uma das coisas legais que fiz relacionadas ao hobby no ano que passou foi ter ido visitar o Clube Paulista de Wargames por ocasião da 1ª Papo de Mesa CON (ou PAPOCON como eu gosto de chamar o encontro).

 

“Como assim? Que diabos foi essa PAPOCON e porque eu não fiquei sabendo dela?” Consigo ouvir alguns de vocês perguntando, sem entender que conversa é essa de PAPOCON e tentando lembrar se você ouviu falar desse evento ou não. Deixa eu contar essa história do começo.

Hello there Reader.

 

One of the great hobby related things I did last year was attending the first “Papo de Mesa CON” (or simply PAPOCON as I like to call it) in Sao Paulo/Brazil.

 

You may be wondering now what am I talking about as I had never mentioned it here and I do tend to give my readers fair notice about any events I’ll attend in case any of you guys want to join in the fun. If you read this blog regularly you know by now that I’ve started hosting and producing a podcast show with my good friend “Ultra”Marcos (from the “Chumbo, Plastico, Tinta & Pincel” blog) called “Papo de Mesa Podcast” (which would roughly translate as “Tabletop Talk” in the English language), a show produced in Portuguese language (so it might not be of interest to some of my English readers) thus aimed at the gaming communities in Brazil and other Portuguese speaking countries given that very little hobby content is available in our native language.

Hello there Reader.

 

As I said yesterday, I had completely forgotten to post here on the blog about the second part of our “Papo de Mesa Podcast” about Warhammer 40.000.

 

This week we have published the final installment of our 40K episode in which we wrap up our (very) informal conversation about this fantastic game produced by Games Workshop.

Hello Reader.

 

I’ve been so caught up with my real life issues that I forgot to post here the latest episode of our “Papo de Mesa Podcast” show.

This episode is the second part of the 6th episode where we talk about Warhammer 40.000 and you can download it on our podcast’s blog or watch it through the embedded video further down on this post.

Hoje temos mais um Relatório de Batalha (Battle Report) aqui no blog. Desta vez acompanhamos um embate entre Eldars (capitaneados por mim) e Orks (comandados pelo Marcelo – cujos artigos do “Tale of X Gamers” você pode acompanhar aqui).

 

 

“Com os olhos da mente o Farseer observava as fortificações abandonadas. Sua visão aqui era como a de um pássaro perscrutando do alto as construções deixadas para trás quando os humanos recuaram. Não havia mais o que proteger, e agora, sem função, os postos avançados de guarda e monitoramento aguardavam em silêncio por novos ocupantes.

 

O planeta havia mudado muito. Os humanos não hesitaram em destruir toda a rica cobertura vegetal nativa com agentes químicos para negar aos Tyranids a biomassa de que necessitariam para ampliar as forças do enxame. Foi mais ou menos na mesma época em que as plantas morreram que as pedras em formato de crânio surgiram, brotando do solo como sementes malignas brotando após a primeira. E então vieram também os Orks.
