Content We Liked: 27th August, 2023

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

Starting this week’s article off with a cultured, artistic bent as John Blanche discusses some of his most iconic pieces from the Warhammer franchise and beyond. A seriously fantastic watch, cannot recommend this one enough.


We’ve been getting into our British Folklore here at the Goonhammer offices, and the announcement of a range of minis based on the rural-inspired art of Sin Eater Illustrations with this rendition of The Green Man has seriously piqued our interest. We can’t wait to see more of this range.


It’s been an incredible release weekend for the new Cities of Sigmar book for Age of Sigmar, with some stunning renditions of its accompanying new plastic minis. But once again Emma Svensson grabs the top spot with this fantastically lurid Cavalier. A riotous clash of purple, pea green and sky blue in a diamond pattern, an utterly mad scheme rendered expertly. We love it.


If there’s ever a link we post here that we recommend you click on through to it’s this one. Nathaniel’s animal-mutant army is delightfully grotesque, one of those armies we only pray we get to see in person. Especially the Hogryns.
