Since I was traveling in Brazil, I figured I’d see what the local meta-game was like. When we get a few games, will get some new battle reports setup
How did I find someone to play in Brazil?
Well I am already a fan of Mixed Martial Arts, and Brazil has some of the best fighters in the world so there probably have to be some cool 40k gamers too. So I googled and found the site below and got a quick reply from Estevão at the “The Painting Frog” on players in Sao Paulo specifically.
Introduction to the local community of players:
Silvio (Ork player), Sócrates <Ken> (another Ork player), Antonio Jorge <AJ> (dammit, ANOTHER Ork player & Nurgle Chaos Space Marines), and another Andre <Tocha> (Blood Angels, Tyranids & Deathwing).
I’ve been able to meet everyone but Tocha so far in a fun dinner, and then we got a game in last Saturday.
The Battle Report from Brazil – Andre’s Salamanders vs Eldar Saim-Hann (mine)
A very fun, very close game.
Overall these local guys are a great mix of incredible modelers & painters, and enjoy fun and well played lists. It is a perfect match for my play style. I very much appreciate the paint work, when we see everything on the board.
Example of some of the Modeling & Paint work by AJ, that is the original site in Portugese, or click here for a google translated version for english speakers.
