The Week Ending November 2nd, 2019

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:

  • Episode 60: Ignorant Grox-Fondlers
    The 40kBadcast
    Dan and SRM are back this week with a new episode of their podcast, taking about regional ice creams, poop, and 40k books.
  • Hatty’s Halloween Great Unclean One
    @hattsandsocks on Twitter
    By far our favorite Halloween conversion, the paint job on this Great Unclean One is just fantastic and we love how it evokes the season, right down to the dead leaves on the base.
  • Pete Allison’s Warmongers Progress
    @runebrush on Twitter
    We really like the work Pete’s been putting in on his Warmongers units, especially this very sharp-looking warlord with scythe and spirits.
  • John Ashton’s Fulgrim Shoulderpad
    @The_John_Ashton on Twitter
    *slaps roof of shoulder pad* You can fit so much freakin’ detail in this thing
  • NIcholas Vogt’s FIrst Claw
    @vogt_nicholas on Twitter
    We’ve already talked about our love of converting book characters as 40k models, and Nicholas’ First Claw is one of the best examples we’ve seen. Just phenomenal work.
  • Ricki Smith’s Midnight Queen Conversion
    A fantastic conversion with a very cool concept for the base, showcasing a floating character and terrain surrounding her.
  • Rhu’s Lancer Knights

    If you aren’t following the insane work Rhu’s been doing with his renegade knights armies, you’re missing out. Just some insanely good work going into these.

  • 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.

On Goonhammer:
