Episode 16: End of Days

D-Day approaches!  For me anyway … and really I guess it’s W-Day, but whatever, the point is this is the last episode before yours truly is bound by the shackles of love.  As such there will be a little bit of a longer hiatus between episodes 16 and 17 (expected to be three weeks instead of what would be the usual two) so get your Turn 8 while it’s piping hot!  Today’s episode is back to basics with our usual bag of tricks, no special segments and therefore it’s a little more bite sized for those that enjoy a shorter show.  Also, we finally reveal the details about our Blind Fight, so tune in!

Plus don’t forget the usual great content including news and rumors and the Rules Of Engagement …

Build a Stormraven – Part 1 of 4: Interior and Assembly

Interior viewA note from the Editor: It is with great pleasure that I present to you a labor of love and wonderful tutorial from two-time guest host, Andy!  This complete tutorial features his fantastically painted Blood Angel’s Stormraven which he slaved over in the beginning of 2011.  The original tutorial, which can be found on Andy’s blog, was delivered over nine parts.  Andy has been gracious enough to recreate that tutorial here, slightly condensed, for you, the Turn 8 audience (also, it gives some better exposure to his work … win/win!).  Please enjoy and feel free to leave our man a comment or two.


The Interior:


Ok, so I’m FINALLY posting my walk through of the building and painting of my Blood Angels Stormraven.   So,  obviously I unsprued things and filed down all the mold lines etc.   I decided to actually paint the inside of this thing (for some reason).   First I black primered the interior (not the outside).   Then I used Boltgun Metal to pretty much coat the entire interior (Space Marines aren’t into interior design so much).   I used the Black Ink (not Badab black, I have an old bottle of the stuff and its MUCH stronger than Badab Black)  with a half water half ink mix and washed the hole interior.   If you have Badab Black, just use that straight up with no dilution.  Then i did a dry brush of Boltgun Metal again to get rid of the “watermarks”.  For the walkway ramps, I also did a wash of Devlan Mud to show where the Marines would trudge dirt and grime everywhere when they embark and disembark.

Next step, I used Scorched Brown on the leather seats and highlighted with Bestial Brown.   Gold parts were based with Shining Gold, highlighted with Burnished Gold and then a little bit of Mithril Silver on the corners and points. Read the rest of this entry »
