Content We Liked: 12th May, 2024 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

We featured the Gamma Silo Rotatory diorama a few weeks back and we haven’t been able to sleep since, as the conflux of Train Brain and Warhammer Brain rages about in our skulls, the deep yearning to build a giant grimdark railway in our basements filling our hearts with longing. Well at least this thirst can be slaked a little by this super rad interview with the diorama’s creator, and some amazing shots of the thing in action.


A super neat little post that really helps illustrate the difference different finishes make to the surfaces of miniatures, and how our paint adheres to your Space Marine’s face once you’ve slopped it on. And honestly just super cool to see a high def close up of our tiny soldiers.


Honestly we’d hang out with the bear as well. He’s like a big shaggy murder carpet, and he won’t try to tell you how Joe Rogan is the greatest mind of our generation before choking on his vape.
