End Game!

I know it's not very nice to post two days in a row, as the readers will not have time to see or comment the first one.
However, as this post is the continuation of the precedent, I decided to do it.
Here comes my human team for Dreadball: Gaviões Dourados.
While I was painting them, I don't know why, but I thought about the cartoon 'Silver Hawks'. As the yellow looked like a MNM gold (pushing a little, I know), and as Gaviões (hawks, in Portuguese) is the name of another very famous association of soccer supporters (rival to Mancha Verde), I came up with that name (however, the color scheme has no relation with the colors of Corinthians team).
Not one of my best works, but one of the fastest (all ten models in less then a day).
Mission accomplish: all the miniatures of the Dreadball box are ready.

First kick

At the last week game day at the club, I did a farewell party to say goodbye to my friends from the club (even if I'll be in the next two game days).
I was very happy to see the room crowed with very good friends that shared very good games in all those two and half years.
They kindly offered me two royals gifts: a Dreadball game, and two factions of Bushido (both in English, so I can play with my new friends in Brazil).
So, in order to say thanks, I started right away painting them.
I started with the Dreadball, and now I present you my Orx team.
I thought to seek inspiration in the Brazilians soccer teams, and so a chose a to honor my brother using his favorite team colors (Guarani, from Campinas).
So, I came up with this green and white scheme, that a first look very odd (green clothes for Orx?), but in the end I'm very satisfied with the result.
For the team name, I'm not sure yet, but thought of Mancha Verde (a famous association of soccer supporters for the Palmeiras team).
However, for the human team, I changed my mind about using the brazilan's team colors (they are all the same, with black/white, green/white, etc) and chose to make my own color scheme. They will not take long to show up here (I hope they will be ready till next Friday, so I can play with them at the club).

Fiends of Chaos

To celebrate my silver medal in the Army on Parade, I got a new acquisition for my Crimson Slaughter army.
Actually, is 2 in one: a Forgefiend/Maulerfiend.
The miniature is magnetized so I can field one of the two fiends.

Maybe it's one of my last paint job for some time. I'm moving back to Brazil, so all my material will be in boxes crossing the Atlantic till the end of this month.
However, I'll try to put some news as possible, like showing my Tyranid Hive (all preparations done, just need to start painting).
