Hello Reader.

 

Well, it seems that in light of all the recent articles published here, the word on the street is that I don’t paint miniatures.

 

With this blog being called “The Painting Frog” there has indeed been a shortage of painting related articles, something I’ll try to remedy today.

 

One of the things I have been trying whenever I sit down to paint is to step out of my comfort zone, and lately that has meant experimenting with the airbrush. I’ve owned one for a while now and used it with some degree of success in the past to paint a small force of Ultramarines and also on the first of the Saim-Hann Eldar I’ve painted.

How’s everything folks? Montagna here again to share what has been going on. THis month I won’t fullfil my promise as I decided to write a little bit about where to purchase GW miniatures.

For those of you unaware of it, in the last few years we have had some trouble in purchasing miniatures for our armies given GW’s new trade policy which forbid major British resellers from selling their miniatures outside the European Union.

 

If you search here on the Painting Frog you will find the very opportune writings of brother Estevao about it at that time. But that’s in the past so let’s focus on today.

 

Unfortunately there isn’t an official distributor for GW products in Brazil, no matter what some think: There ISN’T. For years we depended on the occasional importer but the fact is that hobbyists are the ones who do most sales and incentive to the hobby in Brazil, through the online forums. I’ll cite Warhammer Brasil and Clube BoS here as those are the ones I visit most regularly and also where, with a little cara and checking the reputation of the sellers, it is possible to find good deals, avoid problems and save some time.

How’s everything folks? Montagna writing here and as this is my first post I believe some sort of introduction is in order. My name is Leonardo Colombo, but my friends call me Montagna. I work as a bank employee and I’m a natural born gamer. I’m a complete addict to games be they electronic ones, board ones, strategy or role playing ones. I came across the fantastic world of little plastic figures back in 2009 and on the very same year began collecting Space Marines and got completely hooked by Warhammer 40K.

 

Since then I have invested time and money into the hobby, but being honest, I’m a frustrated and ineffective artist so most of my miniatures are assembled and primed at most.

 

I admit being more interested in the game itself and its history, or as we call it: The fluff.

 

Having said that, I now officially begin my participation on the “A Tale of X Gamers” here on the “The Painting Frog” blog with my first article and its considerations.
