Although it’s a big internet out there, the Tabletop 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

 

Emma Svensson’s creations grace this page for a second week in a row with this stunning Bowling Ally Carpet Heresy Marine, even giving us a blacklight shot of those wonderfully nostalgic patterns. You can just smell the stale fries and feel the clatter of the pins in your back teeth.

 

Possibly one of the most unlikely army ideas we have ever seen, if anyone had “Bretonnian Genestealer Cult” on their bingo card you’re a liar. Its incredible how well kits produced almost two decades apart work well with each other, creating some seriously unique weirdos.

 

Chaos is… Funny…

Another one for the “ideas we’d never thought we’d see” scoresheet, with a Carnival of Chaos flavoured Beastmen horde. There’s a spectacular range of miniatures from across Warhammer Fantasy/Age of Sigmar in this single army, all topped off with a statement making paintscheme. Whoop whoop.

 

Oh hell yeah, it feels like an age since we featured on of BlackBeardMiniatures’ inspired conversions and its time to rectify that. This utterly Orky mashup of Mawcrusha and Machine deserves to be beheld, an absolute unit.

First squad for the homebrew complete…
by u/Aki11-28 in Warhammer40k

 

We’ll always love unique and weird Homebrew Chapters/Warbands/knitting clubss and damn do these Marines make a statement with their custom skull-like helmets and very unique uniform scheme (particularly the off-center stripe over the breastplate). Spectacular.
