The Week Ending January 11th, 2020
Although it’s a big internet out there, the Warhammer digital universe is pretty small and spread out. In Content We Liked, we take a look at the articles, videos, podcasts, and products that caught our eyes or were noteworthy during the prior week you might have missed. Here’s what we liked this week:
In the Wild:
- The 40K Badcast, Episode 64: This One’s For the Horn Dogs
Dan “The Sex Cannon” Boyd and SRM
The badboys have another episode already, this week talking about uh… *checks notes*… feet and ska. That seems on-brand for them.
- Lounging Nagash Conversion

This sick conversion shows that sometimes even Nagash likes to kick back, throw on some Mastodon, and relax with a good book.
- Huge Sisters Basilica
Sword ‘n’ Steele via YouTube
A crazy amount of time and effort went into building this impressively large church using the Sector Imperialis terrain kits. The kind of project we all wish we had the time and space to do ourselves. Great work.
- Pete Rees’ Sokar Pattern Stormbird

An impressive amount of work on an impressive model. Pete did a fantastic job with the weathering.
- Dee’s Paint Filled Hell Hole
A cool blog with lots of very impressive painting work, particularly if you’re a fan of Imperial Knights.
- Clayton’s Mechanized Warlord Titan
@imstillclayton via Twitter
Mechanizing titans is always cool, and we can’t wait to see this one when it’s finished.
- Andy’s Thunder Warrior
@oftheaett via Twitter
A very cool Thunder Warrior conversion. We’re still waiting for one of these guys to show up in Blackstone Fortress.
- The Secret to Painting Eyes
@Squidmar Miniatures via YouTube
A wonderful tutorial on what I find is easily the most stressful part of painting a minature.
- Coda’s Painting Stream
Coda streams at weird hours owing to being in Australia, but it’s worth your time to stop in on his stream when you can. He recently did a near 24-hour marathon stream with the new Sisters of Battle box.
We’re back on our normal schedule, reviewing new books and preparing for LVO.
- Here Come The Sisters of Battle!
With Sisters finally getting their full release, it’s worth revisiting the reviews we’ve written for them, which we’ve collected for you in one handy post.
- Goonhammer Hot Takes
We saw a number of surprise releases this week, and every time that happens, we’ve got a Goonhammer Hot Take, to tell you about how the changes relate to you.
- Slaves to Darkness Battletome Analysis
by Ellarr and SRM
We’ve got an in-depth look at the relatively new Slaves to Darkness book this week, analyzing every unit, spell, and artefact.
- Roads to LVO
Several Goonhammer Authors are prepping for LVO now. Follow along with them as they try to finish their armies and perfect their tactics.
- Horus Heresy Legion Overview: The Ultramarines
LordTwisted continued his Legion Focus series, looking at the Ultramarines.
- The Narrative Forge: Campaigns: Painting Narrative Armies
by Tyler “Coda” Moore
Coda continues his series on Narrative armies, talking about how to plan and paint them, and how to tell your story by showing.
- The Fabricator General: Building Your Own Carrying Case
by Charlie A and other authors
The crew talk about how to build your own carrying case, and several methods for doing so.
- Necromunday – New Scenario Generator Tables
by Merton and Dan “SexCannon” Boyd
The boys followed up on their scenario work by creating some new generator tables that are likely to create a more fun set of campaign experiences.
- Hammer of Math – Smash Captain Thunderdome Part 2

Kevin returns to the perhaps the most important topic of all – how do you build the nastiest hammer (or hammer-adjacent-implement) wielding hero/villain in the 41st Millenium.
