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

Oh hell yeah. Some of the best stuff across all of Warhams is when it goes classic Swords & Sorcerery with that signature grim twist and this absolute belter of a conversion nails that vibe perfectly. An inspired project.
Speaking of deeply inspired conversions… wow, just wow. The amount of dedication just to build this concept let alone paint it to such a level to make it believable is about as intense as the prismatic blur is on your eyes. Big recommend clicking through and looking at the WIP pictures.
We’re always fans of adding LEDs and glowy bitz to miniatures, it really hits that ooh shiny core of the brain. The pulsating effect earns it extra points, we can’t wait to see this finished.
Taking a break from intense conversions to appreciate a neat and clean paintjob with some wonderfully crisp Black Templars. Particular stand outs from the freehand Templar mark on the helmet, the blends on the claws and the OSL from the flames. All around fantastic work.
Doing a lot on this army I've never even attempted before. Really happy how this one turned out. pic.twitter.com/67lomPZRoW

Goddamn. Not just managing to accurately freehand the iconic Creme Egg packaging, but even managing to paint in the crinkling of the foil itself. Supreme dedication to the bit.
(Also Creme Eggs suck, fight me).
