Content We Liked: 10th September, 2023

Although it’s a big internet out there, the Tabletop 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.


On the Internet at Large

Starting this week off with an ice-cold piece to cool us all down, with this utterly gorgeously realised skeleton warrior, rendered in a frozen look inspired by the iconic cinematic for Wrath of the Lich King. We can’t wait for the guide to this one to see how it was done, from the eerie reflections in the metal to the charred and aged look of the bone.


We’ve seen some cool uses for the broken statue from the Warhammer+ Vindicare but damn if this one isn’t downright inspired, as if pulled right out of a Blanche illustration.


We’ve featured these sky-faring Skaven before and we’ll keep doing it because this project is delightfully madcap. The spluttering warpstone-ridden smoke, the listing to the side because of Boneripper’s sheer weight, just… everything about it, superb.


Taking a break from the Deeply Concerning turnip28 figures they’ve graced this page with before, manglingminis brings us these very old-school feeling Ents, constructed from beach driftwood and other natural materials. Right out of pre-film LotR illustrations, right out of the park incredible.


Finishing off this week we have another piece of oldschool cool with… I mean look, it’s the Gun Wizard. The Gun Wizard. There’s no way in hell we wouldn’t shove this in your face because this model speaks to us on a spiritual level. Look at it, look at it!
