Yeaaaahhhhh!!!

After a long and depressing time, things seem to get quite better... In fact they got better so suddenly that sometimes I feel like I'm in a dream or something like that. 

Basically I moved home (after my old dwelling got looted by bandits) to a wonderful Krieg-esque bunker near my college. The house is awesome, with a big garage (that I turned into my studio, as I don't have a car...), two living rooms (a small library and my PC room), a bit kitchen, bedroom, one toilet and a great area for washing clothes (with a internal open-air space), and it doesn't have windows (in fact it have just one, between my bedroom and the internal patio, but since it faces inside the house, it doesn't count much) as the house is "compressed" between two other buildings. The roof is quite high (almost 4m tall) and surrounded by electric/barbed wire, and sunlight only goes inside by some glass roof tiles. Also the front gate is a solid metalon door with two padlocks (by the inside) and the garage is separated from the house by a steel door that runs sideways (also padlocked), so I guess any thieves might need a bulldozer to get inside (or some C4...)

I took a looooong time to organize the new house, and also bought a new PC (Core i3, 6Gb Ram, 500Gb HD), pretty basic compared to my old one, but better than having to answer e-mails, Facebook and DA in the cellphone. The moving (with all the new furniture I had to buy, since my old house furniture was joined with the walls) and the new PC gave me a quite sad debt, and I will be some 6 months at least without any extra expenditure (about 3k us$ debt, I'm paying some 300 us$ per month...). But it's worth!

Also my life changed from a cop movie to a romantic film quite fast. When I was 11 to 12 years old I had a school girlfriend/crush called Laiz, we used to go to the same school, but she moved to another one after a couple of years and, since in the 1990's there was no cellphones, Orkut, Facebook or anything like that, we lost all contact overnight. After some 19 years away, she managed to find me at Facebook, we went out to meet each other and - SURPRISE - we restored the dating XD

Yap, now I got a girlfriend (yeeeeaaahhhh!!!), and a very beautiful one (she is quite similar to Disney's Alladim princess Jasmine... tanned skin, long legs, long black hair and quite fit). There has being a looooooong time without dating (and all those sweet stuff of giving flowers, chocolates, saying "love you" and watching series together), but seems that finally my bad luck had gone away... 

Also I'm having some good results at sculpting 28mm miniatures... I hope soon I get good enough to start selling them =D

Ork Riders 2 by orcbruto
Ork Riders 2
After I mounted my Nurgle Ogryns I ended up with a lot of heads, some hands and a couple of spare arms, so I decided to boost my Iron Waaagh!!! a bit. 

Despite the official lore doesn't account for orks riding squigs into battle, I decided to build some (count as ork bikes) because the idea seems very, very funny, cool and "orky". Imagine some 100kg+, 2m tall green brutes trying to ride some 1,00m tall ball of meat with a huge huge maw full of teeth, and also beat or shoot their targets before their "mounts" bite someone's leg off... XD

Except for the heads and most hands with melee weapons, everything else was sculpted by me... 

This time I bring you a closer view to Gurk Bigtuzk (a bit inspired by Warcraft aesthetic, with two enormous tusks hanging at his shoulders), famous slayer of big monsters with huge tusks (he claims the tusks at his shoulders were taken from a Bloodthirster, but some claim the daemon was already dead when Gurk got to his teeth...) , mounting the "Smiley", a champion face-eater squig...

And also Sork Da Squigboy, the most daring ork ever to ride a squig. Really, he always chooses the most wild, vicious and jumpy creature he can lay his ork hands on, and always carry some trusty grenades (really some IED, mostly unexploded human ordnance that can go off at any minute...) in his belt and some ork country song in his maw... XD

Thanks for the fav! What did you think of my paint skills in 15mm? I looked a bit of your work and its quite nice, too dark for me and a bit glossy (although that's probably the flash, I hate taking pic of the minis @__@ they never get right) but overall I liked that good work!

Thanks! =D

Yap, photos are hard to achieve with cheap cameras... sometimes the flash makes it all glossy, sometimes it's too dark and you can't really see anything... XD

Hummmmm... do you mean my opinion about your miniatures? 

Well... they look quite good, but the Space Marines seem to be too "solid color"... Try mixing a tiny bit of the paint you used with black (or green, for red paint) and then water it and apply to the parts of their armor that are facing down, and make the same thing (but mixing with white or yellow for the red paint), water it and apply to the parts facing the "sky"... it helps to create a sense of "3D" and lightning to the mini =D
