BWD How-To Series: Wash Painting

So I’m back! I’ve actually been back for a month or two now, although in a slightly reduced format. Instead of weekly blogs, I’ve been posting on Instagram (go follow us there if you haven’t already). At least for the short term, Instagram and Facebook will be my primary method of posting progress shots and … Continue reading

The Lord of Iron

This week, we’re showcasing one of my all-time favourite characters in the Horus Heresy: The Primarch Perturabo; Lord of Iron and undisputed master of the IV Legiones Astartes:

MUST… OBLITERATE!

A quick update this week, rounding out the job lot that started with the Multi-Purpose Rhinos from last week’s blog. This week, we’re moving on to some infantry to go with all the tanks I’ve been painting recently, and we’re starting with a unit of Chaos Obliterators:

How-To: Gore

I’ve had quite a few people contact me privately to ask about how to do the gore effect on my Genestealers from last week. To that end, this week I’m publishing the inaugural BWD How-To blog focussing on different parts of the hobby we all know and love. This week, obviously, we’re going with gore … Continue reading

They Mostly Come Out at Night

This week, we’re revisiting my old Genestealer Cult, a force I started a long time ago, abandoned, and have now rekindled with the recent release of Deathwatch: Overkill and all the beautiful miniatures it contains. To start this force, I’m kicking off not with the Hybrids, but with the pinnacle of Genestealer evolution: the Purestrain:

Vorax Maniple Ρ-Κ-12

Continuing on with the Mechanicum archive this week, it’s time to introduce the agile melee death-machines of Cerberus Cohort, Vorax Automata Maniple Ρ-Κ-12: Created before the signing of the treaty that saw Mars and Earth reunited and the Great Crusade begun in earnest, the Vorax Class Battle-Automata was originally designed as a hunter-killer; loosed into … Continue reading

Thanatar Siege Automata Ω-Β-20

This week while I continue to power through a big pile of Flames of War minis on commission, it’s time to dig into the archives and visit a miniature I haven’t had the chance to show you yet; my Thanatar-Class Siege-Automata, Ω-Β-20. Designed as a mobile artillery platform to support the advance of smaller, more nimble … Continue reading

Getting Basic

Apologies for missing yesterday’s update. I was busy working on a super-secret project which I can now share with you: Brush With Destiny is expanding into the base-making business! Brush With Destiny’s base collection will begin with two themes: Dark Temple and Industrial Decking. The Dark Temple bases are crafted to look like the floor … Continue reading

Multi-Purpose Spartan

This week, it’s a miniature months in the painting; the colossal Spartan Assault Tank: An extension of the ubiquitous Land Raider armoured carrier, the Spartan was designed to carry more than double the number of troops a standard Land Raider could carry, permitting a full squad of ten Terminators to ride one accompanied by commanders or … Continue reading

Domitar Σ-Κ-7

This week, the Mechanicum units continue, this time with a Domitar-class battle automata, Σ-Κ-7: Widely considered the pinnacle of the Mechanicum’s research into Battle-Automata, the Domitar was the last type of automata to enter production before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy and the ensuing technological regression. Larger and swifter than the Castellax it served beside, … Continue reading
