    Bruteopolis Terrain Wave 4 - Design Notes
    Hey guys! I thought I'd share some of the design philosophy behind the new release.

    The Bruteopolis Range has expanded with thirty 28-35mm new terrain kits. Brutalist inspired, the range so far aims to balance Scale, Flexibility, Gameplay, Durability and Simplicity.

    We also discuss the collaboration with Alex from 52 Miniatures for his new fantasy and sci-fi terrain table, and share some of his progress pics!

  • Weathering steel and rust effects paint guide.

    This blog covers two easy techniques to achieve a rust effect for your terrain - The first using an airbrush to build up successive layers of rust colours, and the second using special rust effects paint.

    The metallic paint that rusts uses an acidic solution and a little help from water to create...Real rust! This technique is especially useful for Necromunda and post apocalyptic games like Gaslands, but is easily applicable to all wargames.
