The Week Ending January 25th, 2020
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:
- Warboss Kurgan’s Fallen Knight

This is just a really excellent conversion and paint job using the new Mephiston as a base.
- Tom Kirk’s Skulls Daemon

This thing is just metal as hell. You can never have enough skulls.
- BertyJA’s Titanicus Chaos Warlord Titan

This is a really cool conversion that pulls bits from a ton of different models in the Chaos 40k range.
- The Ninja Finger’s Grandmaster Voldus

Love the paint scheme on this one as well. Great colors, love the decision to go with white armor.
- 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.
