We’re almost two thirds of the way through the March to War 2019 challenge, so let’s see how things are shaping up. Mike Well, as standard, I’m starting to panic that I’m not going to complete this challenge. It’s March on Friday, and I don’t feel like I’m two thirds of the way through my… More March to War, part 3

Reiver face mask Many moons ago, the fluff for the Space Marine Chaplains had their wearing the bones of their predecessor, including the skull – the Emperor only knows why they had such odd skulls, but there was… More How to: Paint Primaris Space Wolves, part 3
If you’ve not read part one of this tutorial, head here to see how to paint the armour.

After two months of hard hobbying, how have we all got on with our Hobby Guilt challenges? Who has made progress, who has got distracted and who will be painting the same stuff well into 2019? The answer is, all of us, actually! If you would like to check our first post to see the… More Hobby Guilt Round-up 2018
In this video I’ll be painting up A Primaris Reiver for my Space Wolf Kill Team. It’s a pretty basic paint job, but looks great on the tabletop. The video starts with the miniature undercoated in Army Painter Wolf Grey (which is pretty much identical to Citadel Russ Grey – my eyes can’t tell the… More Video ‘How to: Paint a Space Wolf Primaris Reiver
Welcome to the first part of a short guide to show you how to paint up Space Wolves. The miniatures in this tutorial are all Space Marine Primaris Intercessors and Reivers, but the principles are the same if you are painting up normal sized Space Wolves. In this part, we’ll be covering the armour for… More How to: Paint Primaris Space Wolves, part 1
Welcome to another exciting (?) instalment of Hobby Guilt, where the chaps at the Brush and Boltgun try and work through some of the unbuilt and unpainted miniatures that litter our hobby spaces like dead leaves litter the streets at this time of year. Rob: Over the past two weeks there’s been limited hobby time,… More Hobby Guilt 2018 – Part 6
As a bit of a change from the greenskins, in this video I’ll be painting up one of my Space Wolf Kill Team. It’s a pretty basic paint job, but looks great on the tabletop. What does everyone think of the Primaris miniatures? It’s the first I’ve painted and I found it really nice to… More Video ‘How to: Paint a Primaris Space Wolf
Hello and welcome to another post in our lovingly titled Hobby Guilt series.

If there’s one thing that I really like about having space marine armies, it’s the option to have a company standard, flying the colours of the company, or the chapter, depending on how many are left. It’s one thing that I really like to spend time painting, because if the company standard looks good, then… More Carrying the Colours
If you’ve not yet read part one of this, posted some time ago, you can find it here. From where I left off, I’ve done a number of things with the miniature to get it to the point you see below: Shoulder pad: Painted around the Space Wolf logo with Citadel Averland Sunset base, then… More How to paint Space Wolves part 2: Geigor Fell-Hand painted as Bran Redmaw, Wolf Lord
Battle damage on miniatures can be something you either love or hate on miniatures. I used to hate it, reasoning, why would you want to paint a figure well, then make it look battered. R Kid’s Black Templars look stunning, as they are pristine, armour polished and not a chafe in sight. Nowadays I like… More Painting Basics: Battle Damage
The Brush and Boltgun has had a little makeover! That’s right, we’re pleased to promote and show off our brand new, shiny logo. Made by Rob (I cannot draw – no seriously!) we think it shows off everything that Brush and Boltgun is about, but in a nice, simple, easy to recognise package. Rob has… More The Emperor’s New… Logo?
For about three years, I spent my time collecting Space Wolves. I liked the Vikingness of them, and the Chapter’s colours too, so, I amassed a battle company, and chose Bran Redmaw to lead it. Now prior to starting them, there wasn’t a Bran Redmaw miniature, so I’d constructed one from the plastic Space Wolf… More How to paint Space Wolves part 1: Geigor Fell-Hand painted as Bran Redmaw, Wolf Lord
