Content We Liked: 5th May, 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

Lets start this week’s column off with a piece advice. Wanna guarantee yourself a spot in this roundup? Make some Orks with an absolutely delightfully wacky theme. This Rukkatrukk (Space) Buggy is kickass enough, but you’ve gotta click through and see the rest of this insanely cool Astro-Ork army. Damn right inspired.


With Age of Sigmar releasing it’s own Musclebunch yesterday, lets say a prayer that one day the Catachan Jungle Fighters will receive the full glowup they truly deserve. Until then, lets enjoy these seriously cool kitbashed Catachan made from the World Eaters Jahkal kit, particularly the squad sgt rocking a goddamn chainglaive.

It’s a damn shame that this one won’t embed, but this is one Facebook link you won’t regret clicking on. Converted Necron units? Own. Limited colour palates? Own. Glowy weird energy effects? Own. This whole Command Barge? Whips serious ass.
