The Week Ending January 25th, 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:
- Terry Pike’s Gorgeous Wraithguard

These are just lovely and we can’t wait to see the finished project.
- Kirsten Williams’ Mounted Sisters

A lovely paintjob on an inspired conversion using the Genestealer Cult Magus model.
- Paint a Start Collecting Box in 8 Hours Challenge
Squidmar Miniatures via YouTube
The Squidmar crew are taking on the ludicrous challenge of assembling and painting an entire Start Collecting box in 8 hours. They used Flesh-Eater Courts for this one.
- Chaplain Dreadnought Conversions
Lou Rollins’ Personal Blog
With all the controversy around Chaplain Dreadnought conversions at LVO this week, it was cool to see someone doing something proactive about it. Lou’s conversion looks great and can be made with spare parts.
- Evil Hat Productions’ Notes on H P Lovecraft
@EvilHatOfficial via Twitter
We like the Cthulu mythos but Lovecraft was a reprehensible, racist piece of shit and too many modern works and companies that adapt or use his works skirt around that. It’s refreshing to see Evil Hat take a strong stance on it and be more than willing to tell people that if they don’t like it, then they don’t want their money.
- The Warhammer Stats Engine
A very cool stats and visualization tool for Warhammer
- 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.
With the LVO 40k GT happening this weekend, most of our 40k-related thoughts turned to LVO. But it’s not the only game out there.
