As well as painting miniatures for fun, both Mike and I are also published authors, and I’m pleased to say that one of my short stories, Junkerstown, is in the anthology. My story follows a team of pathfinders who… More Deadzone Dossiers – A Deadzone Anthology

Painting Basics: Bone

Hello there. In this post, I’m going to be showing two slightly different ways of painting bone on miniatures, one is really quick and easy, the other is slightly longer, but also pretty easy. Firstly, the very easy method. For both versions, the only paints you’ll need are: Citadel Rakarth Flesh, Citadel Ushabti Bone, Vallejo… More Painting Basics: Bone

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

April Hobby Challenge: Robout Guilliman Week 2 Update

So we’re now at the end of the second week of our hobby challenge and it’s about time for an update.

Well, a week has passed since we started the challenge of painting up Roboute Guilliman, the recently returned Primarch of the Ultramarines, and there still seems to be a long way to go.

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
