Episode 22: 6th Edition Cometh

As Opy says, “5th Edition, we hardly knew ye … actually we knew ye quite well,” and aside from the ye’s, that’s the truth.  But, out with the old and in with the 6th Edition!  So begins our shift from rumors to facts and all the joy and pain and suffering that comes with learning everything you know all over again … huzzah!?  Before we drop 5th like a bad habit though, we give it a fond farewell, cover one last 5th Edition tournament hosted by Stomping Grounds and of course, the epic conclusion to our three part Battle Report miniseries.  Get some!

Episode 21: Wish List

It is the beginning of the end … of 5th edition.  It seems like only … several years ago … it all got started, but as Star Trek episode titles say, “All good things”.  But the future is coming!  What will it bring?  Ponies?  Candy?  Unicorns that eat ponies and poop candy?  ‘Cause that’s crazy and I’m not sure how I feel about it.  Anyway, with likely less than a month to go the gang here at Turn 8 thought it was a good time to express our greatest hopes and deepest fears … for 6th edition.  Some ideas are from the rumors (fake ones or otherwise) and some are Bill’s deep seated neuroses … err .. I mean, fresh ideas!  And of course, part 2 of our three part Battle Report Miniseries is here!  Farseer Ellysia and Kor’sarro Khan meet again on the field of battle, with decidedly different results from their last encounter!  Don’t miss it!

Build a Stormraven – Part 4 of 4: Icon Details, Applying Decals and Final Pictures

Stormraven Primed Wings offA note from the Editor: It is with great pleasure that I present to you a labor of love and wonderful tutorial from one of our new contributors, 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.


In this installment, I’m gonna go over the icons I used for extra decoration.  First off, the Stormraven comes with plastic relief icons of the basic Blood Angels “winged blood droplet”.  I used one of these on the front right of the vehicle, but I also had some left over Blood Angels icons from the Baal Predator kit.  You can also buy these icons separately at a bits store or eBay.

The first icon I’ll go over is the angel dropping blood from a chalice on the left wing.  For all the icons I used a white base coat to make the colors really pop and the fact that the colors were mostly whites and light colors.  I painted the scrolled portion and the angel’s garment Bleached Bone.  I kept the wings white and used Blood Red for the actual blood droplet.  I used Dwarf Flesh as a base for the face and highlighted with Elf Flesh.  For the gold crown I used Shining Gold and then a Burnished Gold Highlight.  After all the base colors were painted, I washed the wings with Azurman Blue Wash and then highlighted with Bone White.  For the scroll portion and garments and used a Devlan Mud wash and then Highlighted again with Bleached Bone.  I highlighted the blood droplet with Blazing Orange and then Skull White for the specular reflection.  I then used Chaos Black and a very fine brush to put in the text.
