Content We Liked – 23/04/23

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

A model to surpass METAL GEAR. This is a sick conversion with a lot of well-used bitz to create something unique but recognisable at the same time. The head in particular is a sick as hell design.

An expertly painted piece with almost too many elements to fit into this tiny paragraph. There’s so much to take in – the banner freehand, the subtle modulation of colour with the creeping vedigris across the metals, and all elements of the diorama itself. (My favourite is the peeking squig under the rock.)

Just a sick fuckin’ Space Marine. I’m a loser when it comes to painting skin so seeing people pull off 5 O’clock shadows always amazes me. My fascination with how to paint dudes hair aside, this is an overall great piece.

On the topic of things I’m always amazed by — OSL. The intensity of the lava softly fading into that hot crimson fucking rocks, and its topped off by the harsh reflections of the crystals. You love to see it.

Speaking of things I love to see. Yakuza rocks. A ground-up sculpting job to deliver a fun as hell character from a fun as hell game series. Hell yeah.

One of my favourite projects to follow has been the Pride Marines, and it feels only natural I get the same enjoy from seeing Pride Sisters on top of that. Representation rocks.

This Week on Goonhammer

Another content-filled week, as Goonhammer reviews Giant Robots, both Gothic and Not-So-Gothic, big (and sometimes small!) lizards both fit for war in the Mortal Realms & on the Bloodbowl pitches, sprinkled off with some card-focused fun, as the Magic team review some new cards to take to tournaments and Robert tackles some Marvel Uno.
