The Week Ending May 16th, 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:

One Really Big Thing:

Holy crap! Yesterday Games Workshop announced a new edition of Warhammer 40,000 along with loads of information about their strategy for the next year, which looks to include a massive new Necron release (new Warriors! The Silent King! New Spider Lychguard-looking things!) and of course, new primaris marines (now with chainswords!). You can read all about it on Warhammer-Community and read about our plans for covering 9th edition here.

    Yeah OK that 9th trailer was cool but this is the best 3D animated video featuring marines to release this week and I will not brook any arguments to the contrary.
  • I Just Want to Love Constructed Magic Again
    By Bryan Gottlieb, StarCityGames
    A few of our crew are Magic: The Gathering players going way back and while I don’t agree with all of Bryan’s points, this is a well-constructed article and I like the process behind it and what he’s proposing.
  • Kogan, Minotaur Warrior

    Outstanding paint job and wonderful freehand work on the shirt. This mini knows how to ROCK.

    What a lovely conversion. Man, that guy’s popping up everywhere. Also, they posted a tutorial.

    Don’t tell anyone this but if you want ADB to notice you, all you gotta do is convert and paint a mini of a character from one of his books. That guy loves that shit. I mean, we do too, especially if you’re gonna do as good a job as this.
  • Industrial Waste Facility Terrain Tutorial

    This is a great tutorial and the result looks fantastic. Building terrain is the most fun part of the hobby, I swear.

    We promise it’s not the stupid frog that CHUDs like. Instead, it’s a lovely piece of art showing a Crimson Fists Lieutenant.
  • Brian Jensen’s Deredeo Dreadnought

    Love the color on this Salamanders dreadnought, and the flames and lava base are a great touch.

We started things off with a bang this week talking about Harlequins, then just kept pelting readers with content until they demanded we stop.
