Hello friend... After some time exiled from DeviantArt, I`m finally back!

As you may know (reading my last journal), some damned thieves broke into my house when I was at the college and stole almost everything of any monetary value they could find. My veteran PC was gone, so as my digital camera, big ass monitor, electric screwdriver and tablet (weirdly they left my printer and an old LG smartphone that is shitty as it can be...). For my neighbour it was even worse, as he used to fix notebooks and PCs for a living.

So, long story short, my neighbour just gone away after having his clients computers stolen, and as I used to divide the rent of a huge house between me, him and his sister, I suddenly got alone with a house too big to manage and maintain... and only my smartphone (that was with me in the college at the time of the invasion) to link me to the world. Well, as my smartphone is a Windows Phone, I couldn`t install the DA official app (and the other ones are ridiculously shitty...)... Luckily the thieves didn`t stole my Warhammer 40k armies (they are probably quite more valuable than my old PC... but almost nobody knows tabletop wargames in this country...) or my robotic artificial lung (it`s faaaar more expensive than anything I had at the time! And yes, my organic lung is quite problematic, so I had to use an artificial one to sleep, but since my cat pierced it`s tube and I didn`t found any place that sells other like that, it was kept stored inside a special bag... and I just managed to deal with sleeping without oxygen for some years)

And to make shit stinks even more, the invasion happened right before the middle-semester tests, and in my college we use to have projects instead of "real" tests. And I had to write a lot of stuff by hand or in the tiny micro nano virtual keyboard of my smartphone...

At least the tests went out and I found a new, more safe, cheaper and more well placed house to move to. Right now it will be one week of living in the new house, and this is that very depressing/stressing time you have thousands of man-sized cardboard boxes lying around, dismounted furniture and plastic bags full of stuff and every time you start trying to put things in place, it looks like there are even more stuff to assemble and organize. Also with all the moving + buying new stuff (my old home furniture were all fixed into the walls, and brazillian walls are made of bricks and mortar, so I couldn`t take them with me, had to buy everything new...) cost me so much money that my bank account is in the infrared mode now...

Between these mind blowing unluckiness (I didn`t had any insurance or anything like that, so it`s even worse...), I managed to find a somewhat decent computer (Core i3, 6Gb RAM, 500Gb HD) for a good price (999R$, about 500 usd, but taxes are so fucking heavy around here that I bet it costs about 200 usd or less in US) and bought in 12 parcels... At least I will be able to write, make college homework, access internet and play some games...

As my laboratorium (painting studio/sculpture atelier/workshop/blacksmith) is a mess, with boxes and stuff all around me, don`t expect new deviations from me so soon... Just wish me luck, for I hope to put everything in it`s place before the end semester projects caught me by the neck...


Over the Hills and far away by orcbruto
Over the Hills and far away
So here are some pieces of scenery I've being doing lately. There was a bit of rage since sniper units have a long, long range, and some players called for more "tridimensional" battlefields, were they could hide behind some big stuff that blocked the snipers range... 

So I came across a huge mattress in a recycling bin and took it home. Mattresses pieces cut out look greatly like some rock formation or hill, and I "cloned" some of them using paper drowned in glue (papier mache I think it's called...). So these are the 4 first hills to come out of the production line =D

The palm trees were made with straws and the leaves with burned out flat cables from broken computers, and the tallgrass was made of pieces of rope (based on the tallgrass patterns that used to grow in my old house front yard... heheheh)

The Khorne marines and my custom-modeled daemonettes are there for scale 
Another White Scars sketch by orcbruto
Another White Scars sketch
Yap, still trying to make the White Scars wear some oriental-style armor =D

More or less based on my own Scars conversions... I have some still to paint, so I shall soon upload them here =D
Last Supper 40k by orcbruto
Last Supper 40k
A sketch for a project I'm cooking for some time... Painting the Last Supper from daVinci with the Emperor and the Primarchs. I think maybe I will go ahead with it in this vacations =D

From left to right: Kurze, Angron, Mortarion, Alpharius (or Omegon?), Magnus, Peturabo, Lorgar, Horus, Fulgrim, the Emperor, Lion, Rogal Dorn, Sanguinius, Roboute Guilliman, Vulkan, Ferrus, Corax, Jagathai, Russ and Omegon (or Alpharius?)
Corazon del Imperador by orcbruto
Corazon del Imperador
Usually Warhammer 40k uses latim, english, greek or germanic inspired names, so I decided to come along with some spanish-inspired imperials for my Dark Heresy campaign. 

My previous campaign was focusing on the total clusterfuck of invasions in planet Meteora, a giant super-earth like planet mostly desertic and quite invaluable for the Imperium, as local wildlife (some megafauna worm-like creatures) produces some biologic compounds used to fight aging, and keep most of the old dudes of the Imperium young and healthy for thousands of years (any similarities with Dune are not coincidence XD). 

Meteora was invaded by three chaos warbands, the Blood Wolves, the Devourers of Flesh and the Thousand Prodigal Sons, just before a Hive Fleet and a Waaagh!!! reached the same place. And seems like Eldar also have their elven fingers on it. Imperial Guard and Deathwatch tried to fight the invasions and were quite successful at disbanding the Hive Fleet (due to the brave characters), but ended up wasting their troops and getting disbanded themselves... But when the fight was in it's peak, they broadcasted a general help plead through their Astrotelepaths, and it was answered by the Corazon del Imperador, a enormous prison colony/penal legion/spaceship. 

At the present the Corazon just sits in the orbit of Meteora, and the characters, now Ordo Hereticus acolytes, were sent to discover why the ship isn't fighting the enemies of the Imperium yet... 

The Corazon was originally built out of dozen of badly damaged starships recovered by the Adeptus Mechanicus after the Yaet Crusade, in M38. Being too precious to just melt down or throw away, and too fucked up to repair, the ships got welded into each other by the local Magi into a huge half-space station/half-ship construct, and the family Santanna, faithful and powerful east-Ultramarian Imperial Navy officers, were allocated to the ship.

Out of the ship charts, the Corazon was used as mobile warehouse, transport ship for the Legio Titanicus, fortress and flagship, as well as Black Ship for the Inquisition. In M40 a great rebellion engulfed some dozen systems at the Yaet Expanse, and the Corazon was used as prison/concentration/extermination camp for both the rebels and any imperial forces that surrendered to the enemy or refused to fight. As it took centuries for the Administratum to run a census and assign the prisoners as penal legion, most of the original offenders died of old age, and their offspring made the deep hulls of the ship into their own homeworld.

The Administratum saw the Corazon del Imperador as a good vessel to store prisoners and heretics not bad enough to be assigned to death penalty (or so bad that death would be a mercy), and the ship became an official penal colony, with IG personal and Commissars assigned to organize and deploy the troops at batlefields across the Imperium.

The ship now houses the 894ª Penal Infantry, the 206ª Mechanized Penal Infantry, the 928ª Penal Engineers and the 108ª Penal Atmospheric Airforce Wing, and is, by itself, a heavy spacecraft capable of laying wast to many enemy vessels and also bombard atmospheric targets. 
Rubric Marines by orcbruto
Rubric Marines
So, here a sketch I was doodling at my college. I tried to made a image of the Rubrics as more "egyptian-like" marines, mixing some ideas from Stargate movie, egyptian art and Tomb Kings from Warhammer Fantasy. 

All was drawn and painted with pencils, with some shading done in Photoshop

Yeah, I noticed there is a German flag at his loincloth... At first I just tried to test the color scheme of the Thousand Prodigal Sons (the 1000 rebels that followed Ahriman after Magnus the Red kicked him out of the Sorceror's Planet), with a black skirt/loincloth with red and yellow flames at the base... But after I was done I realized the German flag also have the same scheme... so this is problably "ThothFritz, the Stabsunteroffizier of the Nile"
