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
Few things will get you on this list faster than a recreation of classic ‘ham art with modern miniatures and modern painting skills. This owns so hard, MARINES OU indeed.

We need to start featuring more non-miniatures forms of art more often, especially if they’re at the calibre of this ode to everyone’s favourite boxy boiz.
Consistently impressed and terrified at the quality of freehand people can achieve using a canvas as small and awkward as Knight armour plates. Simply incredible.

Just about any hobbyist will tell you that Orange is one of the most obnoxious colours to slap on a mini, so we’re big fans of this super citrussy Battle Brother.
We’ve seen a few takes on turning the Umbra-6 Vindicare into a full-sized statue diorama but we love this one in particular for its clever use of a converted Sister of Battle McFarline figure as the statue from the neck-down.
