Content We Liked: April 4, 2021

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

  • Doomed Encounters: How to Lose at 40k blog
    Brent has written a nice article about losing games at 40k and how to play when you roll up to the table and your chances of winning range from “slim” to “none.”
  • Ricki Smith’s Eidolon of Murder

    This is an amazing conversion and I love the little backstory behind it.
  • Some amazing Armigers

    The work that has gone into making the undercarriage of these Armigers look great is just insane. And they do look great.

    This is a very cool LotR-adjacent conversion with some great skin shading.
  • James Lynch’s Wight King
    @SpongiePaint via Twitter
    Are you sick of drab, dark wights that look like they’re having no fun being dead? Then check out this wonderfully colorful take on them.
  • James Karch’s Quartered Marines
    @spikyjames via Twitter
    Quartered marine schemes are always impressive, and James has done an amazing job with this one.
  • Sophie’s Sand Mash Tutorial
    @sophiesaurus_rex via Twitter
    Sophie walks us through a great tutorial on how to great a textured paste that’s great for adding bulk and texture to terrain.
  • Tita’s Dark Angel Terminators
    @i_titam via Twitter
    The Heresy Dark Angels Terminators models are just excellent and Tita has done a great job with these.
