Olá Leitor!

 

O ritmo de preparativos para o “Rumble in the Jungle II – A Missão” está intenso e na esteira de todos os outros preparativos acabei trabalhando em mais algumas peças de cenário para as mesas do evento.

 

Quem acompanha nossa página no Facebook, ou ainda nossa conta no Instagram, já teve algumas prévias dos novos cenários em que andamos trabalhando, e por conta disso algumas pessoas nos perguntaram como foi que conseguimos o resultado de envelhecimento (weathering) nos prédios cujas fotos andamos publicando.

Olá Leitor.

 

Esta é a versão em inglês do artigo sobre a técnica de pintura conhecida como “Técnica do Laquê” (“Hairspray Weathering” em inglês). Para conferir a versão em português você pode clicar o link.

 

Abraço e até breve.

Hello Reader.

 

Preparations for the “Rumble in the Jungle II – A Missão” continue very much like the series of famous Hollywood movies: Fast and furious.

 

In between all the miriad things involved in running a tournament I also took the time to work on some new scenery pieces to dress our tables for the event. If you’re following our Facebook page or our Instagram account you’ve probably seen a sneak peek of what we’ve been working on, and because of the photos we’ve published on the aforementioned social media outlets, we have received a few requests to share how we went about weathering some of the scenery pieces we’ve been working on.

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.

 

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.

Hello Reader.

 

Just a quick update today to let you guys know that The Painting Frog now has its own Facebook page.

 

I have been toying with the idea for a while now and it seems important these days to have a way of communicating more dynamically with one’s audience. In the case of the blog it makes a lot easier for readers to keep up to date with what’s being published without having to visit the blog every day.

 

The Painting Frog, now with 100% more Facebook.

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.

Hello folks!

 

Finally, we get to the last article in this series! I admit I am a little late, but that’s not without reason. My studies, mostly, demanded a great share of my time and I couldn’t leave this aside. When the texts and seminars were done, I could get back to the hobby.

 

The last unit added to the army is another Tactical Squad, with a lascannon and a graviton gun as special weapons, and with a plasma pistol for the sergeant. The unit was build around the marines from the Assault on Black Reach boxed set, with the lascannon being a leftover from the Devastators box and the graviton gun a bit purchased in separate, as were the parts I needed for the rest of the unit, such as the legs.

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.

 

We’re getting to the end of our participation on the “A tale of X Gamers” project here on the “The Painting Frog” blog. This time I decided to paint a bunch of miniatures at the same time as their color scheme is the same.

 

I’ve initially painted the Deathleaper and the Zoanthropes along with the Tervigon. After a while I painted the two Carnifexes and added the five Genestealers to the production line.
