Content We Liked: 6th August, 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

Lets start this instalment with something simple, clean and crisp. You could mistake this fantastic Sternguard Veteran for one of ‘Eavy Metal’s own, it looks straight out of the Codex in all the best ways. Absolutely Guilliman approved.


Xun’bakyr, the Mother of Oblivion

And then at the complete opposite end of the scale… damn. A strikingly gory spectacle, managing to look regal and horrific in equal measure, feminine without slapping a pair of robo-tiddies on her. Nightmarish in the best ways.


The OrksWagon. BoomDakka Snazzwagon X 1:32 VW Beetle.
by u/smokealbert in Warhammer40k

Now this is shiny and chrome! Or at least rusty and ded spikey. A classic conversion idea brought to life spectacularly with a modern paintjob and seamless conversion work.


Didn’t want my Warchanters to look the same, so I tried a little kitbash idea. C&C welcome!
by u/Y-Berion in ageofsigmar

Keeping up the Ork-y energy, another really cool conversion that really shows off the power of perspective when it comes to modelling. From the angle of the average gaming table this Warchanter is really gonna stand out from such a simple but effective piece of remodelling.


By the Emperor what the hell is that. It’s wonderful don’t get us wrong, a quintessentially Blanchitsu figure but damn, we’d be watching it from the corner of our eye at all times. Disgustingly cool.
