Deadzone Dossiers – A Deadzone Anthology

Yesterday saw the release of Mantic Games’ Deadzone Dossiers – A Deadzone Anthology short story anthology.

April Hobby Challenge: Roboute Guilliman Week 3 Update

Well, the end of the third week is upon us, and it brings with it a feeling of dread that I’m going to be painting Guilliman for the rest of my life. Or at least for the next week and a bit. I’ve made a fair bit of progress since last week, and I put it… More April Hobby Challenge: Roboute Guilliman Week 3 Update

Guest Post: Khârn The Bloody by Stuart Barker

This week for something different I have invited Stuart Barker along to Brush and Boltgun to write a guest post for us. Back in February, Stu’s gorgeous paint work on Khârn the Bloody was featured by Forge World themselves, and I though it would be an excellent opportunity for him to showcase the model and tell… More Guest Post: Khârn The Bloody by Stuart Barker

Custodes Contemptor Dreadnought Work in Progress

I have always liked the idea of the Adeptus Custodes, the mysterious protectors of the Emperor. I never believed that we would get models for them, let alone to awesome range of vehicles and upgrades that Forge World are putting out. I just had to get myself some to paint and game with, even without… More Custodes Contemptor Dreadnought Work in Progress

Triumvirate of the Primarch – Unboxing

With our Robot Guilliman Monthly Hobby Challenge which started on Saturday, I thought it’d be a good time to show the box and all the hobby goodness contained within for anyone that hasn’t yet had the chance to see it. The arrival of a primarch in Warhammer 40k is something that people have discussed for years,… More Triumvirate of the Primarch – Unboxing
