The Week Ending January 4th, 2020
Happy New Year! 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 63: Daves to Darkness
Dan “The Sex Cannon” Boyd and SRM
The badboys of the 40k podcasting world are back, talking about 2019 and looking ahead to 2020 in another hilarious podcast.

In this massive four-hour episode, the ICs talk about their highlights and lowlights of 2019, and what they’re planning for 2020.
- CheekyChechen’s Fire Warrior
CheekyChechen via Reddit
A cool Fire Warrior inspired by the artwork for the old PS2 game, which you may remember us subjecting Jon Bernhardt to a while back.
- Aspiring Champion with Hand Flamer
SomeLengthiness via Reddit
We really like the work SomeLengthiness put into this. It’s a clean conversion and we like the paintjob.
- The Most Satisfying Hobby Moment Ever
Darren Latham Miniature Painting YouTube Channel
- Kill Team Quartus
@DamienPedley via Twitter
Damien’s wonderfully painted Deathwatch Kill Team just ooze character and reminds me why I started doing Deathwatch in the first place.
- 2nd Edition Blood Angel
@Two_Thin_Coats via Twitter
We’ll miss Duncan’s work with Games Workshop but we’re eager to see what he does next. His classic 2nd edition Blood Angel was a fun send-off.
- Jake Ozga’s Nurgle Daemons and Traitor Guard
@Ex_Profundis via Twitter
Jake’s Daemons and Traitor Guard are wonderfully gross.
- 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 kicked off the new year with a bunch of retrospectives looking back at the year that was.
