The Week Ending September 21st, 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:
- Chris Peach’s Duardin Forge Works
Wade Pryce via Twitter
Chris made a sick piece of terrain on the WarhammerTV Twitch Stream and it’s worth a look for inspiration.
- Azariah42’s Lizardmen T’au
Azariah42 on Reddit
A fun conversion kit-bashing Seraphon and Fire Warriors.
- Mike South’s Goliath ConversionMike South via Instagram
Another sick conversion. I thought this was an Ork vehicle at first. There’s so much going on with it.
- Lukapanache’s Sweet Minotaurs Lieutenant

Just a fantastic job painting and posting this model.
- 40K Bacast: Bonus Episode – Novacast 2019
Dan Boyd + SRM
The boys are back in town, and they’re talking about Nova. And also new space marines. Every episode of the Badcast is a wonderful treasure.
- Kwanchai Moriya Interview
Ding and Dent Podcast
Raf Cordero is the newest writer to join the Goonhammer team, and we’re crazy excited to have him on board. In addition to his killer Beastgrave review this week (see below), he’s also got a regular podcast over at Ding and Dent that we like. This week, Raf and co-host Charlie sit down for an interview with celebrated board game illustrator Kwanchai Moriya.
- Coda’s Painting Stream
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.
This week was absolutely stuffed with content. To the point where I’m definitely leaving stuff out in the list below. If there’s anything you missed, I’d recommend going back and reading it — it was all great stuff.

- The 2019 NOVA Narrative Event
