The Week Ending July 6, 2019
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:
- Badcast 53: Fulgrim’s Quest for Sexual Perfection
The 40k Badcast
Around these parts, we Stan the badcast. This week Dan and Clampuff talk managing relationships and hobbying, which Primarch couples would be extra kawaii, and Dan won’t shut the fuck up about his stupid wedding. Did he throw his now-wife’s instructions to not go to the Taco Bell Cantina on their wedding day out the window and enjoy the forbidden pleasures of a Baja Blast Margarita? Only time will tell!
- BREAKING NEWS: Another Primaris Lieutenant!
The GW social media crew have gotten pretty good at this whole “making good content that’s funny” thing since 8th edition came out, and this week they’re back with a sneak preview that is definitely just a Lieutenant and not a bunch of new Primaris units at all.
- The Hobby Room (Tuesday)
The Hobby Room

- Warhammer 40k Tactics: Genestealer Cults
Nick had a really good write-up recently on Genestealer Cults tactics and how to use their ability to hide information from the opponent well. There are probably multiple books you could write on using these guys well, and Nick’s article is a great place to start.
- The New Maelstrom Rules and You, Part 2

- Tactica: Necron Monster Mash
This week, Wings looks at the new C’Tan spam list that’s become such a graveyard smash and dives into how to build it, play it, and beat it.
- Skorpius Dunerider Analysis
Ellar’s first Goonhammer post is a detailed look at the new Skorpius Dunerider, including how it rates against various targets and how it might be best put to work in the field.
- Your Legion Sucks, Part 3
by TheChirurgeon and ANAmal.net
The boys are back with more “jokes” about which legions are the best and which legions are the Ultramarines.
