Warhammer Fest On Sunday the 13th May, Mike, Dave , Chris, and I headed to the Ricoh Arena in Coventry to attend the second day of Warhammer Fest (Games Workshop’s annual event). The arena itself was set up almost identically to last year, with the Forge World sales area at one end of the main… More Warhammer Fest 2018 Review (Picture Heavy)
Hello and welcome. Today I will be demonstrating how to get the coal black armour finish for Pre-Heresy and Horus Heresy era Iron Hands. For my Iron Hands, I wanted that oily, coal black machine look that Forge World achieved with their display models. It looks complex, bu it’s actually quite easy to achieve. You… More How to Paint Heresy Era Iron Hands – Part 1 (Legion Colours)
Hello, Today I’m going to show you how to do the silver basecoat that Forge World use for many of their Horus Heresy Space Marine Legion colour schemes. (Forge World have given out painting guides for most of the Horus Heresy legions (If you don’t have them email and ask) and a lot of them… More Forge World Horus Heresy Silver Basecoats
Welcome back to our continuing series on “How to Paint Heresy Era Iron Hands.” In this section I’m going to look at how to paint the eye-lenses on your Iron Hands. This method can also be used for any lights on equipment or vehicles. For my Iron Hands I’ve gone for blue lenses as this… More How to Paint Heresy Era Iron Hands – Part 5 (Lenses)
This year’s summer hobby challenge was painting primarchs Ferrus Manus and Horus the Warmaster. The Forge World models are incredibly detailed models worthy of any painting challenge. Here are our results: Each week we posted updates on how were were getting along with the challenge. If you’d like to read them to see how we… More Summer Challenge 2017 Roundup
The end is nigh! Finally we’re at the last post. As I type, hoping that my finger doesn’t pop open and leak blood over my keyboard, I’m doubly pleased that I’ve reached the end of painting Horus. I’ve really enjoyed painting him, and the added bonus is that both Mike and I have a fully… More Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week Final Update
After the long and drawn out stair affair of last month, I wanted to paint a little more fun this week, and cracked on with Horus. Now I’d finished the tassets and his head, so continued working on the bronze colours of the armour. Before I started the bronze, I went around the whole miniature,… More Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week 7 Update
I know I keep saying this, but I feel like I’m getting nowhere fast with this model. Check out last week’s update to see where we got up to so far. As you can see, it’s slow going. But I suppose it’s important not to rush a model that’s this special. I wanted to make… More Summer Hobby Challenge: Ferrus Manus and Horus Lupercal Week 6 Update
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
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?
It’s arrived! I’m going to be spending the rest of the evening reading this. I’ll post up a proper review sometime soon. We’d also like to announce our new Twitter and Instagram profiles. Both share the name Brushandboltgun.
Welcome to our new blog! We’ll post some information up here shortly.
