Content We Liked: August 23, 2020

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

  • Marie AntoiNecron

    This is a very cool conversion that puts the new Necrons aesthetic to interesting use. Love the hand knives. Also, check out some of her other wonderful Necron conversions while you’re at it.
  • Paint Mimic
    PygmyPainting via r/minipainting
    This is a wonderful and well painted idea that is not at all going to give me nightmares.
  • Neil Hodgson’s Stealth Suit
    via Reddit
    An older image rediscovered on Reddit, this is one of the most impressive painted stealth suit effects I’ve ever seen. It just works so well.
  • NOVA Open’s Summer Raffles
    NOVA Open Charitable Foundation
    We were deeply saddened (but in complete understanding) when NOVA was canceled this year. However that doesn’t mean it’s all cancelled – now through September 6th you can buy tickets to their raffle for a chance to win wonderfully painted miniatures from artists around the world.
  • Cetrahead’s Angel’s Tears
    @PaulGil29481959 via Twitter
    The Blood Angels Angel’s Tears are some cool models and Cetrahead has done a great job with these.
  • Wujczak’s Mortarion
    @wujczak via Twitter
    This is another rad Mortarion. As someone who recently painted one, I can tell you that model is a lot of fun but a bit of a slog. Great work, Wujczak – love the color choices.
  • Ash McEwan’s Guide to Terrain Bases
    @Ash_McEwan via Twitter
    In one of the most useful hobby-related tweets I’ve ever seen, Ash lays out a guide to creating bases for several key locations in the 40k universe, including Fenris, the Planet of Sorcerers, Vigilus, the Martian Wasteland, and just the general ‘Eavy Metal basing scheme.
  • Mix & Sketch Ep. 3 – the Zorn Limited Palette
    MarcoFrisoniNJM via YouTube
    This is a great tutorial on how to use the Zorn Limited Palette for color selection on minis to achieve some striking results.
  • Feedback the Noise Squig
    @savage_ork_guy via Instagram
    Louise Sugden is finally trying her hand at sculpting and the results are ridiculously good. Her Insta was already a pro follow but be sure to check out the wip photos of the sculpt while you’re in there.
  • The Games Workshop Online Preview
    Warhammer Community
    In case you missed the preview yesterday, GW showed off all kinds of cool new stuff, including House of Iron, a new Warcry starter box, a new season of Beastgrave, and Night Lords terminators for Horus Heresy.
