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.

Bespoke carrying cases are always a delight to see, especially ones that double as a display board. If this one doesn’t bring those cozy pub feelings nothing will, like a little portable Bugman’s Bar.
Oh hell yeah. While we’re highlighting this wannabe Tankbusta we really cannot recommend looking through Fabio’s entire Digganob project enough, with its fantastic use of Warcry and other assorted Chaos weirdos to bring Gorkamorka’s premier Ork cosplayers into the modern age.
Monty Python x Warhammer – Sir Robin the Undead from Warhammer
Alright, this is an acceptable level of Python. Beyond the chucklesome freehand on the shield we just really love the colour palate on this skeleton, a brighter more vibrant look than what you see from most undead pieces.
A really cool kitbash for the new Imperial Guard field guns that comfortably straddles the line between Militarium practicality and Mechanicum weirdness. Also have to give props to the paintjob on the crew, Olive green works really well on Skitarii robes.
Are Turnip28 players okay? Are you doing alright, do you need a sit down?
