The only one I know of is the water pot in the masters brush set.

I think I saw a bolter round pendant on the Black Library website.

The question is: Who'd ever wear the damned thing?

Did anyone here actually buy the Master's Paint set? I have always wondered if it was worth the price. Or is it just another gimmick (although I always liked the look of the Bolter Shell Water pot).

i have one of the bolt shell pendents and wear it regularly. Its not that heavy although i wouldn't try to run with it on cause i'd probably take my own teeth out!

The masters paint set was rather over the top, the fact that it actualy contained 'brush soap' to wash your brushes in your replica bolter shell...

And the 'bolter shell' was just a standard brass pot we have loads of at work...

In the USA, people who preordered the 4th edition rulebook got either a laser-cut rubber keychain (of the 40K logo), or a metal replica bolter round. The round was the entire round, not just the casing.

People who pre-ordered in the UK got nothing as usual, except a kick in the chin over the price.

Surley not...

I remember an article way back that showed you how to make a vindicator demolisher cannon shell, if you can find that you could make your own bolter shell using the same principles.

What's even more amusing is that it isn't even 0.75 calibre, I know, I've measured it (begin with the nerdorama that is measuring replicas for their accuracy....:p).

Have you ever used brush soap? Try it. You may actually be impressed at the difference it makes to your brushes. You can pick a tub of it up from any decent art supply store.
