The Week Ending September 28th, 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:

The Badcast badbois are back discussing the new marine releases. They’ve got jokes!

- INQ28: Unfinished Business, Part 2
Eternal Hunt is working on a 28mm Inquisitor Ordo Xenos warband and like everything that guy does, it looks so good it almost makes me angry. Just fantastic stuff.
- 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.
- Hammer of Math: Iron Hands Vehicles
