Hello there Reader.

 

I went home to spend the weekend a couple of weeks ago and invited a few friends over to share a few beers and roll some dice. I still haven’t gotten around to understanding how the new Eldar Codex works (and to be honest I don’t know where it is), so I just sat down to watch two Space Marine armies blowing each other to smithereens as Valter’s Black Templars tackled Ton’s Blood Angels.

 

I should say that watching their game unfold was a very good reminder of how Wargames are meant to be played: On a table with beautiful terrain and painted armies!

Hello Reader.

We published a while ago a review of one of Warmill’s MDF scenery kits, the Outpost Kit.

If you missed it back then you can click this link to check it out and see all I had to say about it back then, before checking the video on today’s update.

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.

Hello Reader.

It’s time for another battle report here on the blog. This time we’ll follow the latest conflict between my Eldar and Marcelo’s Orks (which you can read about on his ToXG articles here on the blog).

“With his mind’s eye the Eldar Farseer could observe the abandoned fortifications. Floating high in the air he shared the birds’ view of the buildings left behind when the humans retreated. There was nothing left here to protect now, and without that, the outposts which once guarded and monitored the planet’s riches were left behind and now waited for new masters to defend.

 

The planet had changed drastically. The humans, true to their kind and abusive methods of war didn’t hesitate to employ chemical agents in order to destroy the once abundant plant life that covered the entire planet trying to deny the Tyranids the vital biomass they needed to engorge their swarms. It was about the same time that the plants died that the skull shaped rocks started sprouting like evil seeds after the first rain. And then the Orks came.

Salve Leitor.

 

Acabei levando bem mais tempo para escrever este artigo do que eu esperava, mas, quero crer que a demora tenha valido a pena.

 

Já tem um tempo que escrevi pela primeira vez acerca de minha vontade de experimentar um novo sistema de jogo e compartilhar toda a experiência com vocês através do blog.Uma de minhas preocupações em relação a essa nova experiência eram os cenários principalmente porque o jogo que escolhi, o Infinity da Corvus Belli, possui uma temática e uma escala bastante diferentes dos demais jogos que eu já colecionava e assim o meu acervo de cenários não seria tão útil para o novo jogo.

Hello there Reader.

 

Writing this article took me a lot longer than I originally anticipated (sorry about that Harry!) but I want to believe the end result I’m presenting you here in this review is well worth the wait.

 

I wrote here on the blog a while ago about the idea of tackling a new wargaming system from scratch and sharing my experiences along the way with you Reader from this blog. One of my biggest concerns were the scenery pieces given that the game I chose to begin with, Infinity from Corvus Belli, has a very different scale and atmosphere from the other games I already collected (namely Warhammer 40.000) and thus my collection of scenery pieces wouldn’t suit the new game.
