Content We Liked: April 17, 2022

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.


On the Internet at Large

Carsten’s Ash Wastes Weirdos

We’re pretty universally hyped for the Ash Wastes expansion and it looks like we’re not the only ones. Particularly love the extra-leggy Sentinel and the clever mashups of Genecult and various ganger bitz.

Roman’s “Rain of Vengeance” Diorama

There’s plenty of dioramas out there recreating scenes from Warhammer art, but rare quite so literally. Roman’s piece perfectly captures the composition, colours and aesthetics of something you’d see on the glossy pages of a Codex, here rendered quite literally spilling from the frame. The wounded Marines fighting on and the various servitors and cherubs mixed in amongst the Astartes particularly evoke some wonderful 3rd Edition vibes.

Pinno’s Roman Legion

Its one thing to brag you’re painting this Legion, or that Legion. It’s another to paint a quite literal Legion. These Victrix Romans are fantastic, complete with auxiliaries and even little supply wagons, particularly the detailing on those iconic shields.

Pax Acrylica’s General Radagon, the Red Wolf

You know what’s cool? The Voystroyan Firstborn and the Valhallan Ice Warriors. Know what’s also cool? Guard Commanders who look like they could wrestle a Terminator into the ground. So in walks the kickin’ rad-ly named General Radagon, the Red Wolf in this sweet little conversion from Cursed City’s Radukar and we can’t help but swoon.

This Week on Goonhammer

The April 2022 40k Balance Dataslate

After our fevered prayers, gnashing teeth and possible blood sacrifices, GW finally saw fit to drop the much needed update to the Balance Datasheet. Did it save us from our literal Clowncar meta? Did Sisters get their much needed divine intervention? Will Custodes players cry and whine no matter what? (Yes) Check out our coverage and find out.

Ruleshammer 40k- Armour of Contempt: One of the juiciest parts of the dataslate was the inclusion of a brand new cross-faction rule for our Power Armour-clad yahoos. With so many questions about such a big change, Ruleshammer is here to examine this durability boost and how it’ll work.

Goonhammer Blood Bowl Review- Norscan Rampagers: After their accidental tease a few months back due to a wayward Yhetee, the Norscans have returned to Blood Bowl with a freshly revamped roster and we were lucky enough to grab a early look at their rules and the swanky new team box.

Chaos Gate: Daemonhunters- Hands-on First Impressions: Since its announcement last year, we’ve been eagerly anticipation the revival of the classic Chaos Gate with this new iteration. Graced with access to the newest demo, Cambell “SRM” McLaughlin takes a gander at how the game stacks up in its pre-release state.

Malifaux- How to Gain Grounds and Influence People: Our Malifaux coverage returns with a look at Malifaux’s equivalent of Matched Play rules and how to make the most of the Strategies and Schemes at your gang’s disposal.

Commander Focus- Enshrining Life: Y’ever wanted to beat someone to death with a shrine? Y’ever wanted to bring a shrine back from the dead then beat someone to death with it? Those are very specific desires but Commander Focus is here to show you how to do it with Kamigawa’s most unusual archetype, Shrines.
