Content We Liked: 3rd March, 2024

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 off with some of the sickest Non-Metallic-Metals we’ve seen. The armour and decoration of this Daves to Darkness weirdo are outstanding on their own, but by applying the same principles to the non-metallic areas Flame On Miniatures ties the whole look together into a slick graphic novel style that really stands out.


It’s always cool as hell when people take up the challenge of creating new Xenos species for 40k’s galaxy and goddamn, this lizard alien from Nathaniel Mills really nails it with a pretty seamless blend of the newer Seraphon Saurus Warrior and Votann Hearthkyn kits. We’ve seen similar things done before in the past with the old Saurus kit and T’au parts but the far crisper detailing on the newer Lizzers and the chunkier aesthetics of the Votann pieces really make this one and his buddies in the thread stand out big time.


No comment, what more could we say that pictures cannot?
