Content We Liked: 2nd April, 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


Kicking off this week’s showcase with a wonderful throwback to one of the most iconic Black Templar illustrations in the franchise. Not only is that classic Marine updated with a bit of Primaris flair and some tenacious Necron foes, but the subtle crosshatching on the banner to give it a hand-woven look is simply exquisite.


Hitting to the opposite end of the scale with this next piece as Emma Svensson unleashes her lurid, ultra-saturated style on this Chaos Knight Abominant. We’d kill to see what this thing looks like under a blacklight.


Heldrake with a Warpfire base!

Keeping up the Chaos streak with a piece that’ll hit some flashbacks to 6th edition with a Heldrake modelled mid-bombing run. This is a beautiful study in contrasts between the muddy, muted rust of the beast itself and the fluorescent flames pouring from its maw, insanely cool.


A clever little video for our next entry, showing how to model a simple but striking spark effect for weapon impacts, broken electronics or what have you, using basing tufts and some careful brushwork.


CereberusXt has been crushing it the last couple of months with their pride flag Marines and this entry for the Progress Flag is no exception. Holy shit those blends on the armour especially, and the clever little decisions on how to work in all the flag’s designs upon the Ancient’s banner.


Something a little different for our last two entries this month, starting with a rare treat as Jason Rainville takes us through the process of being commissioned for and completing a piece of art of Magic: the Gathering, in this case the utterly stunning “Storm the Seedcore”. There’s some incredibly poignant thoughts for anyone looking to reflect upon and improve their art and we highly recommend a read.


I have an attitude problem with this game, and I want to fix that.
by u/Benthenoobhunter in WarhammerCompetitive

The second of our little subtheme of self-reflection is this thread from r/WarhammerCompetitive, where a user makes the important steps in how they approach their mindset towards the game and other people playing it. There’s some very excellent advice in here upon how to become a more positive and less toxic player in here… as well as some prime examples on the kind of stuff the OP wants to self-improve away from. Another recommended read.
