Content We Liked: 30th July, 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

Lets kick this week off with some stunning Black Templars taken from the Leviathan box, with some clever conversions and kitbashing to not only make them feel more Templar-y, but in cases to turn them into totally different units and loadouts. Simple but stunning.


King Crabs are a fantastic canvas for some more detailed painting, all that large flat surface is a premium in a lot of Battletech designs and this Sword of Light KC makes real good use of its… carapace? Carapace.

This is also a Creb. A mighty Creb.


Meddlers’ Miniatures brings us this fantastic way to get smooth, high contrast blends quickly, in this case using sponging instead of airbrushing but applying similar principles. This looks slick as hell and we’re eager to try it ourselves.


Victory (Based on the work of Boris Vallejo)

(NSFW warning for album-cover horniness)

This is a miniature. No seriously, you might look at that first pic in the gallery and think “oh someone uploaded an old Vallejo piece” but no, that is a miniature. A full diorama of Boris Vallejo’s Victory. Honestly we can’t believe it either, even with the side views. Next level.
