Hello!

 

Well guys I’m back to my Tau Army. They’ve been on hold for a couple of months now and I blame that on “adult life”, being too lazy to work on them and my disappointment with 40K, however, the new edition and the experimentation with some new lists brought me some victories and with those an injection of renewed encouragement.

 

So we’ll begin with my Tau commander. It is a Forge World models (I forgot exactly which one), that is really imposing and while painting it I wanted to steer away from the yellow, as I wanted him to stand out on the battlefield. I didn’t take a picture of it with his accompanying drones, but they share the same red/white color scheme. The base uses my idea of an invasion being conducted on a desert world whith some crystal deposits sprouting (they’re used as fuel for vehicles and guns). Showtime!

Hello folks.

 

Going on with the project I’ll continue with my troop choices for this post. After agreat deal I’ve purchased enough used miniatures to assemble two 12 man Fire Warrior squads and a 6 man Pathfinder squad.

 

I’ve also managed to buy me my second Devilfish after a couple of pretty frustrating auctions.

Hello there Reader.

 

We have recently published an article here on the blog about a friend’s scratch built Titan for the Warhammer 40K game, more specifically for Apocalypse games in which it will be used as a Reaver Titan.

 

Redenctus in all his painted glory.

 

I can’t say I was surprised at how well received that article was, given that I found his work nothing short of amazing, and we did get a few questions about the building process behind it as people wanted to know what parts were used and so forth.

 

I think nothing would be fairer than letting the creator of “Redenctus”, my friend Ton Furegatto, explain a little bit about the creative process behind it in a quick interview. So let’s get to it.

Hello there Reader.

If you’ve been following this blog for a while now you probably know I’m a fan of thematic armies and scratch build models. The reason couldn’t be simpler as I’m a firm believer these bring variety and flavor to Warhammer 40.000 games.

Luckily there’s no shortage of good scratch builders down here in Brazil. Quite on the contrary, the adverse conditions we face in order to enjoy the wargamming hobby (like the infamous GW Embargo) propels a lot of us to try our hand at scratch building our scenery and models.

I often mention Antonio “AJ” Jorge as one of the masters of scratch building in Brazil, not only because his scratch vehicles are one of the reasons I started trying to collect an Ork army, but also because I’ve had the privilege of painting a few of his pieces (which were posted on the blog a while ago here and here). We certainly have other masters like Socrates “Ken” Kentaro,  Geraldo “ the Orc Grandpa”, and Arthur “Arhurt” Bobany but now I have to add a new name to my list.
