The Week Ending August 18, 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:

Coda streams at weird hours owing to being in Australia, but it’s worth your time to stop in on his stream when you can.
