Hello friend! 

Well, after a succession of unfortunate events, and the refuse from my computer to access DA, I'm finally back...

So after wishing a Merry Christmas/Yule/Winter Solstice/Saturnalia/Sol Invictus (late's better than never...), I'm here to wish you a good 2016 too. 

My 2015 was a very convoluted and insane year... First burglars broke into my house while I was away and stole my PC, tablet and almost everything electronic... then I moved to a new house, more well protected (in fact this one looks more like a WWII bomb shelter than a house...XD), bought a new PC (far less powerful...) and kept on... 

Then an elementary school crush I had while I was 12 years old appeared from the void and we started dating... She is quite wonderful, looking almost like Princess Jasmine from Disney, with chocolate-colored skin, big eyes, fit body, long black hair... and for some six months I was believing my love life was finally solved, with a princess by my side and romance in the air... Until early December she decided to end everything without any cause, just decided she didn't wanted me anymore and jetpacked away from the relationship... 

Also for Brazil the year has been quite chaotic... Some dozens of corrupt politicians decided they wanted the president away and inflamed the people against the government... Suddenly a lot of fascist, neo-nazi, stupid white men, rednecks and rich dudes appeared from nowhere and started some sort of ideological war around here, supported by crazy dudes that miss the Cold War and the 1960's dictatorship, and the year passed with Facebook flamewars raging on, protests against the government, protests defending the government, media tycoons manipulating news, protests for coup d'etat, protests against protests, corrupt right wing politicians asking for impeachment, insane old dudes making insane claims... For me as historian it's most infuriating to see a lot of retarded imbeciles misquoting classical writers, hallucinating definitions of political theory, rallying other with hate speech and distorted data... I feel like living in 1938's Germany these days... ¬¬

In a microcosm, friends and family members have started to turn against each other because of political views, some dudes that were my "bro's" just became deadly enemies, verbal and sometimes even physical aggression became common, even inside university grounds, from professors to students or vice-versa... Everything seem so unexpected and nonsensical that is hard to choose your words or discuss anything in a public space without attracting the attentions of extremists that believe a bit too much into conspiracy theory (here we call them "Coxinhas", fried chicken legs, that are very cheap and you can find almost anywhere...).

So I hope next year this mad wheel of changes stop rolling and some good news come to stay...

Nurgle Obliterators Failcast by orcbruto
Nurgle Obliterators Failcast
More failcast models adapted to serve Papa Nurgle and bring smelly destruction upon the galaxy! =D

Nurgle Mutilators Failcast by orcbruto
Nurgle Mutilators Failcast
With a lot more pieces that came out of my failcast (I tried casting a custom-made Mutilator/Obliterator as a multi-part kit, with 6 torsos and 12 arms, but almost all pieces came out missing parts, with gigantic bubbles or too deformed to assemble... So I took a lot of epoxi and sculpted them for my own armies =D) I decided to convert some to Nurgle as well, and them they are (the first 3). 

I took a lot of inspiration with some gore pictures I saw on 4chan, pigeons run-over by cars (everyday a lot of them die like that in my street, usually because they are too fat to fly away and too dark for drivers to see...) and my own garbage bin (that lately became infested by fly larvae, that disgusting stuff that looks like rice moving around... XD).

I think they got quite good, and Papa Nurgle would be very proud of their larvae-infested corpses XD

More Khorne OBs Failcast by orcbruto
More Khorne OBs Failcast
Three more Khorne Obliterators I converted from a test cast that gone wrong... most of them came out missing parts of the torso, head, legs, arms, and I re-sculpted them =D

Despite my recent uploads (that are usually stuff I made at the beginning of the last year and just now had time to upload), I'm getting quite used to sculpting miniatures, and progressing very, very fast in my skills. By now I can say I'm sculpting a lot better than the average RPG miniatures you find around (that D&D First Quest ones, for example) and even better than those old days green plastic army men XD

As my sculpting skills get near to the GW standards I harbor projects of starting a small miniatures industry (like those Heresy Miniatures, Scibor Miniatures...) and sell resin models by the internet. So now, parallel to my training as sculptor, I'm trying to learn to cast minis, and for my guinea pig test subjects I sculpted a trio of customized Obliterators (that my friends nickname "OBs", because of the Blood for the Blood God and all XD) and cast them as a multi-part kit (hands separated from the bodies).

As I imagined, my first casts were a failure... the mold was not very good and my test subjects came out missing parts, with lots of bubbles and stuff like that. As I keep trying to upgrade my casting skills and get to some molds and the proper way to inject resin to get a good result, I decided to not last the failed experiments go to waste... 

Just some bits of "grey stuff"(Loctite Durepoxi) and a bit of modeling and my Khornate Army got some new recruits, straight from the Warp =D (Big Grin)

I really appreciate a honest "review" and critics on these guys (and the next ones I will be uploading shortly)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the fluff Obliterators are a bit different from the Mutilators, as they are created by some kind of warp virus and usually hang around in their own private mercenary bands and don't worship any specific Chaos god... But why? Basically they look more like two flavors of the same "Chaos Ice Cream", just one specializing in melee and the other in ballistics, with the same appearance and idea (soldiers fused into their gear and producing their guns/weapons randomly from their own flesh)... What if some Khornate terminator just happened to be around when an Obliterator sneezed and then became infected by the virus? Would him give up the Blood God and abandon his warband to be a mercenary? Really? 

What if some Dark Lord of the Chaos legions decided to imprison a bunch of Obliterators and have their soldiers rubbing themselves into the monster's organic fluids in order to spread the virus and build a squad of loyal god-fearing OBs? Don't seem like something an evil bastard would NOT do... XD

So them come the Blood Wolves Obliterators, created from the vicious experiments of the Warlord Drake Blackwolf with captured Astartes and imprisoned Obliterators, this ones "hired" as soldiers and then shackled in the depths of Drake's warships, being constantly drained from their blood fluids (mostly blood, because Khorne!) and tissues but left barely alive, to be drained again afterwards. The fluids are them fed or injected into captured Astartes, in the hope of them catching the Obliterator virus. The ones that doesn't die in the process are brutally tortured and locked into cages, chained to the starships, and exposed to the raw Warp, outside the Geller Fields reach.

The few to survive sometimes becomes Obliterators themselves. The new mutants that are broken enough to obey Drake's orders are kept as soldiers, beside the Mutilators, created in similar fashion, and the ones that become too insane or mutated to be of any use are returned to the depths to provide more virus to be fed to new prisoners...

I don't know if you're interested but I've got a link to the site which sells some of the 40K civillian vehicles. Their specialty is mostly pinup versions of various 40K races but they're all quite cool and well made and they have a small (but growing) collection of civilian vehicles: wargameexclusive.com/

No worries :D Personally I got a Chaos cultist (the sores on her legs are pretty detailed), a Sororitas nun which I use as a priest, with some kind of flame-thrower spear and holding hands with a little girl, a female Commissar, a female Tech Priest and a Mechanicus cyborg which I'm not sure what she is but she's cool XD
