Content We Liked: 27th November, 2022

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

Nerds who complain that Necrons just aren’t scary any more clearly haven’t seen Kannovaku’s Flayer Virus’d up force, draped in an entire sector’s worth of fresh skin from the looks of things. Particularly love the use of the McFarline Flayed one figures as the basis of some really neat Doomstalker conversions, an ongoing trend we’re keen to see keep going.


Goddamn. What can we say about this ode to the legendary opening movie to Dawn of War that can’t be expressed by simply gazing in awe at this piece. Incredible.


Kroot with a drum made out of a Space Marine helmet. from Warhammer40k

Way to play the Marine’s head like a bongo H’om’er!
He’s gettin’ a pretty good sound out of that guy!


Goddamn this Scythe of the Emperor is CRISP. The clean panel work, the sharp edge highlights. Peak of the ‘Eavy Metal style.


We here at Goonhammer fully endorse the glorifying of Tiny Dudes. We encourage the inclusion of these Small Guys in every model project you can think of. Accompanying these Lil’ Fellas with the DOOM (2016) soundtrack is further approved of.
