The Week Ending May 2nd, 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

This is a fantastic paint job and it really makes the model stand out. It also solves the problem the GW studio model has where Ghaz’s head gets kind of lost by virtue of being too dark.
