The Week Ending March 28th, 2020
Although it’s a big internet out there, the Warhammer 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. Here’s what we liked this week:
In the Wild:
- The Warhammer Community Adepticon Preview
With Adepticon cancelled, the GW studio preview was completely online this year, showing off all kinds of new models and exciting releases. If you missed it, it’s worth going back to see.
- Michael Hanns’ Amazing Barrels Out of Bond Diorama

Michael’s Adepticon Golden Demon entry would have been absolute fire. The only thing we don’t love about this amazing diorama is the goofy movie scene that inspired it.
- Alarielle the Everqueen by Kitbashermagos
@kitbashermagos via Twitter
This is one of the most complicated and awe-inspiring kitbashes I’ve ever seen. Cant’ wait to see how it turns out, but I’m also glad I don’t have to be the one painting it.
- Small Grot on a Stick

We all deal with isolation differently. Some of us do more work. Others watch TV. And some blessed others like Wib Johnson do this. Trust me when I tell you that this jingle is gonna be stuck in your head for a week.
- Lord of Blights OSL Challenge
eBay Miniature Rescues via YouTube
EBay miniature rescues is a great channel overall, and worth your time to follow. This OSL challenge is particularly good, and the result is impressive.
- FrothyKat’s Jazzercise-Themed Untamed Beasts

As a child of the 80s, I absolutely have no problem with the recent trend of completely rad 80s-themed models. FrothyKat’s WarCry band is is ridiculously cool in the best way. Like a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper filled with doodles of murder.
- Anna – Red Rose Wargaming’s Skaven warband
@RedRoseWargames via Twitter
Huh. Two weeks in a row we’re featuring Anna’s work. This week it’s her Skaven warband for Warcry, who are giving out some dubious advice as it relates to plagues…
- Alberto Lana’s Primaris Chaplain

A very slick Chaplain paint job with a great photo.
- Dana Howl’s Evolution of Choice
