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
Lets start this week’s article off the right way, by being utterly revolted and queasy. This Great Unclean One/Blight Drone/Arachnarok mashup is already pretty disgusting, but the HAIR. The HAIR. Goddamn what an insanely genius idea to push the vile factor right over the edge. Papa would be proud.
Y’know what Scifi needs more of? Big round robots. The kind that look like they’d be great huggers even when they’re crushing human skulls underfoot. Some real Urbanmech/Baymax energies y’know? A good thing then that rokksville has our back with this extremely sweet custom Automata, with all that top-heavy energy we need.
We haven’t checked in on theWarsinger in a while now. What are they up to? Oh nothing, just this heavily converted Be’lakor looking like the last phase of the most ball-crushingest Dark Souls boss around. And to think this piece isn’t even finished yet, we can’t imagine just how eye-watering it’s gonna look when it is.
Buen domingo, buena gente! Vengo a contaros que en mi pueblo, Torelló (Barcelona), ha ganado el Carnaval una carroza presidida por UN TIRÁNIDO gigante. El Lore de @warhammer cada día es más popular! pic.twitter.com/mxYSnAyEBT

It’s Carnival season across the Latin speaking world right now. It’s also apparently the penultimate stages of a Tyranid invasion in Barcelona. In all seriousness this MASSIVE Screamer Killer parade float is an incredible piece of work, winning first place in the town of Torelló. Now this is the kinda party we can get behind.
Finishing off our usual deluge of Warhammer goodness with a dip into the cardboard side of Tabletop Games. As Commander has slowly rose to become the most popular format of Magic, Wizards of the Coast has seriously ratcheted up their game when it comes to the preconstructed decks they sell, both in sheer amount and the actual contents of those products. Youtuber Angry Green Jellybean brings us a mathematical breakdown of every precon deck produced for the format since 2011, examining the data to find what Magic’s designers consider the platonic ideal structure for a Commander deck, and how they think the format should be played. A really interesting watch.
This Week on Goonhammer
