Leatherface Joe by orcbruto
Leatherface Joe
Not much to say about this dude. He is named Joe, wears a mask made of leather (to cover some serious leprosy) and likes to kill people. Also I tried some extreme highlights in this one =D
Ivan Toxic by orcbruto
Ivan Toxic
Back to the heresy! 

So, here is another of my Nurglish cultists, a hitman named Ivan (yes, I took from "The Hitman's Guide to House Cleaning", a very cool crime/humor story =D). Ex-self though chemistry, ex-apprentice of techpriest, ex-medicae student and ex-chemical manufactorum worker, his hobby is to try and test new and awful ways to melt people down, mixing acids, radioactive waste and a good sort of dangerous biochemicals, then spraying it at some poor idiot and taking notes about the results. 

Recruited to serve the Devourers and Nurgle, he became a great teacher and an even better executioner, explaining (enthusiastically, with live examples) to his fellow cultists how to mix innocuous cleaning products to get violent corrosives, exploding gas clouds and poisonous fumes. The number of cultists seem to be diminishing, but their morale is surely improving!  
2014 Elections by orcbruto
2014 Elections
Just joking around with the two candidates for presidency in Brazil's 2014 elections. As they are very very in character for the 41st millennium, I decided to make some versions of them in the Grim Dark future of Warhammer 40k. 

In the left, representing the Worker's Party, the actual president running for reelection, Dilma Roussef, or Dilmar The Mistress of Skulls. She is known for just vanishing with hunger, malnutrition and extreme poverty in the country (now only those top models can die of starvation around here...), kept the unemployment at a minimum level and made our economy stronger. But her party is well known for having partaking in some dozens of corruption scandals lately, and she herself is not very charismatic, in fact she looks always angry, ready to burst into a Berserk frenzy and tear someone with her bare hands. 

Also throw in the mix her past. With 14 to 15 years old she was one of the most feared terrorist and guerrilla rebel against the dictatorship that controlled Brazil at the time, and got a extensive curriculum of bombing campaigns, sabotage, kidnapping and guns blazing firefights with AKs in the middle of the jungle. Also she got captured and was brutally tortured for almost ten years, until she escaped, only to surface after the end of the dictatorship, with a graduation on Economy and a PhD, working as minister in the time of the last president and making tons of enemies with her blunt and raging way of dealing with anything and everything. So, doesn't it look like the background for some Khornate Sister of Battle? She get more balls than most politicians I ever heard of...

In the right corner, representing the neo-liberal yuppies, is Aecio Neves, or Aecion The Inhalator (just remembered Eliphas the Inheritor XD), ex-governor of the state of Minas Gerais. He is best known for drinking and driving, being too drunk to drive, being too drunk to talk, snorting copious amounts of cocaine, getting to hospital with cocaine overdose, dating supermodels, snorting too much cocaine and beating the supermodels, and appearing at almost all parties, raves, festivals and any place with alcohol and (probably) cocaine and models... Also he left the state he was governor with a huge debt, the lowest salaries in the country and is being prosecuted for corruption, besides his personal helicopter being confiscated by police with half a ton of cocaine inside. Ah, also he used public founds to build a freaking AIRPORT at his uncle's farm, so he can bring cocaine from other countries with more tranquility. 

For some unknown reason (Slaanesh sorcery, probably), half of the country or so seem to think the lost brother of Charles Sheen is the ideal president for the country. Most brags about how much the Worker's Party got into corruption scandals, just plainly hate Dilma and her "Catachan" past, or, more strangely, just think it would be nice to get back the party that bankrupted Brazil three times in a row in the 1990's, just for a "change of air". Masochism? Probably. Slaanesh? Sure! 

If I'm not wrong, there are still two weeks until the voting day, and I would surely choose Khorne over Slaanesh this time XD

As a disclaimer, I don't own any politician, and the base images of Khorne and Slaanesh marines were just taken from Google Images, and belong to Games Workshop. And yes, I'm thinking into making a miniature of Dilmar for my Khorne army XD
Hunchback Hugh by orcbruto
Hunchback Hugh
Some people collect cards, some other collect miniatures, but Hugh collects deformities. He born semi-retarded, with legs too short, shoulders too broad, face too ugly and a spine too twisted. His mother died at his birth, some say she just died of disappointment after she saw the freak she put in the world. Hugh's father was a Imperial Soldier, and died soon after his son has born, devoured by some Tyranids in another sector of the galaxy. Alone, the little monster was raised by his depressive uncle and his blind and sick aunt, mostly being trained to work as a slave to both of them, performing most of house tasks as soon as he was grown enough to.

After the tragic death of his foster parents, the hunchback tried to enlist in the Imperial Guard, but was denied numerous times after some basic physical and psychological tests. So he started wandering the lower levels of his Hive City until he got word of some "other" guard that could accept a freak like him. A guard to the "All-benevolent All-father Nurgle". 

Today he works, happily, as another grunt in service of the God of Decay. Constant exposure to the Warp have grown a round and pulsing tumor at his left arm, right behind his triceps. Hugh says that the big and strange ball of meat sometimes "speak" to him. But he also likes to eat poo and burn money, so nobody really believes or care much about it... 
Helther and Skelther brothers by orcbruto
Helther and Skelther brothers
I remembered Mad Max 3, and the "Master and Blaster" duo of a stupid giant and a smart dwarf that used to fight as one, so I decided to make something like it, but, to please Papa Nurgle, with siamese twins...

Two heads, three hands and only one body, this guy(s) found understanding and love only in the underground cult of Nurgle, so they decided to give it back, with extreme prejudice to the enemies of the cult. Helter (the head on the right) controls both normal and strong arms, and it's a capable fighter, while Skelther (the left head) is a criminal mastermind, but controls only a underdeveloped and twisted arm that barely reach the body's waist. Both legs can be controlled by any of the heads, and when they fight or disagree about something (it happens often!), they both start trying to take more control of their legs than the other. For unadvised people, the two-headed brute seems to be dancing or walking in circles when it happen...

Hello my friend!

Last time I wrote I was about to start trying my luck at sculpture, more specifically 28mm scale space fantasy guys (read Warhammer 40k)!

Well, my Overfiend is not out yet... I finished him but left him naked and I'm not in the mood to make his ork armor... buuuuttttt this "guinea pig" warboss gave me a good place to try and test many different materials, techniques and ideas... 

As I am re-painting my Chaos army (as you may see in my latest deviations), I took a time to produce a couple of Chaos Spawn, sculpted from scratch, and they came out quite acceptable. Not as detailed as I had envisioned, but good enough to strike fear to the heart of the enemy (and players, the one I painted already made his debut at the tabletop, and received the nickname "Monstrão", "Big Monster" XD). As the fluff of my Khorne army have them as ex-Vylka Fenryka turned to Chaos, I decided to make their Spawns looking like some weird giant lupine creatures, more or less like the Beast of Gevaudan from the movie Pact of the Wolves (My favorite movie ever! Go watch it! It's Matrix style fights + Medieval fantasy + Hot actresses + Boobs + Weird ass monster!), and soon I shall post them here for critics/suggestions/striking fear to your heart... XD

Now I bought a box of Fire Warriors that I found lying around in a toy store (again, people there had no idea what the fuck Warhammer 40k was...) and got the idea to make a Merc army, mostly to use as allies in big fights or killteams in small Kill Team skirmish. My idea was some renegades similar to Farsight revolutionaries, fighting for the "Greater Payment" rather than "Greater Good" XD

Initially I got the idea to try making some kroot heads and using them in the Fire Warrior's bodies (Because kroot are awesome, and their fluff is a lot more interesting than the Space Soviets Tau XD), but then I got some Durepoxi (the closest to Green Stuff you can find here in Brazil... it looks similar, but it's grey =D) in excess, and to not lose it, I decided to try my luck at some torsos... And now I'm working at ten Carnivores and four kroot Knarloc... I never read the Tau Codex and I don't know much how both of them shall work at the tabletop game, but at Dawn of War the kroot were my favorite race so far.

By now I have them all ready but naked... I still not sure how to outfit them, but as my table and props are mostly desert themed, I'm thinking at giving this guys a bit arab or turk look. I'm still unsure if I go for a more 1001 Nights style or to a WWI and WWII desert troops... I was planning to make some Khorne renegade Guardsmen in a arabian style, and now I'm not really sure if I want the kroot to look much like them... 

Another idea I had is to go for a more black african look... But there are so many millions of different cultures in Africa that I'm not sure about where to start looking at... 

So... does someone have any idea or suggestion? I promise to upload them soon =D

I want one too.  I put a lot of thought into the mechanics and how this could be feasible, just so it looks a little more convincing on the page.
