The Week Ending April 18th, 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:
- Rhu’s Legio Vulturum Titans

Warhammer Community’s Rhu has clearly been busy during the lockdown, bringing this beautiful titan leagion to life.
- A diorama of Sam in Shelob’s layer (ARACHNAPHONES DO NOT CLICK)
@BlackMistSBG via Twitter
Posted in response to Warhammer Community’s request for middle earth picture, this creepy-as-all-get-out diorarama recreates a key moment from Return of the King.
- Fukukan Sage, a searchable FAQ app for iOS
Finding what you want across the many available FAQs can sometimes be a complete nightmare, and this unofficial app aims to bring them all together in an easily searchable format. Apparently contains “Infrequent/Mild Mature/Suggestive Themes”, so get hyped for that too.
- A beautiful, Harlequin themed take on the Visarch

You see fewer versions of the Visarch out there than the other two Triumverate members, and this version is especially stunning, using a palate of shaded pinks and purples to give an incredible lighting effect.
- Classic art given form as a Necromunda mini

Based off some classic Rogue Trader-era art, this is a very faithful interpretation of an old-school 40K mutant.
- A frankly mind-boggling freehanded Custodes Jetbike

It’s a slightly older post but we only found it this week, so we’ll allow it. Some simply jaw-dropping work using the panels of a FW custodes bike as a canvas.

Two Words. That. Cape.
- Worst Units in 40K Survey
