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.

LED rigging a mini is always cool, but to do it on an infantry sized mini (okay, a Custode but it’s still infantry) and going beyond the typical eye-lens rigging? That’s top stuff right there.
The tiny miniature arms race is heating up, not only is teeny tiny Robocop a hell of a sculpt at that scale, but the shimmering reflective metal must have been a nightmare to pull off at that scale. Spectacular.
Hell yeah, we’re always gonna be fans of bringing the minor Xenos weirdos of the galaxy to miniature life and this is a slam dunk of a weirdo at that. Can’t wait to see more from this series.
Finally, validation that the Megadrive was the superior, Omnissiah approved gaming machine. Suck it Nintendaemons.

Doing everything I can,
Holding onto what I am,
Pretending I’m a Stormvermin
