The Week Ending August 4, 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:

  • 40K Badcast Episode 54 – “I Have Painted Quite A Few Ork Taints In My Time…”
    The 40k Badcast
    Cha boy Dan Boyd and his partner in crime SRM are back this week with an excellent new episode of the 40k Badcast. This week Dan’s dispensing life advice, the boys do funny accents, and they talk about Guy Haley’s Dark Imperium.
  • Quick Plasma Effect – Dry Brushing
    Warhammer 40k Blog
    The Warhammer 40k Blog has a quick, easy tutorial for doing plasma coils and heat burn this week and it’s worth checking out.

    We’re already loving the hobby progress we’re seeing around Warcry.
  • Coda’s Painting Stream
    Gooonhammer’s Coda (known far and wide as being Cool and Good) has a Twitch stream where he paints. Stop by and check it out.
  • Emperor’s Spears by Canis Rex
    In case you missed Coda’s awesome look at the Emperor’s Spears in this week’s How to Paint Everything, we’ve fallen for the latest chapter to get an ADB book treatment. And Canis Rex’s spears are so very pretty.
