Content We Liked: August 9th, 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

  • The Trailer for Exodite

    Exodite is an upcoming fan film featuring what looks to be fifth sphere expansion T’au taking on the Eldar and it looks cool as hell.
  • Gabriel Thorn’s Sergeant Jovan

    Sergeant Jovan here has had a long day. Great work on this one, love the weathering on the greaves.
  • Dan’s Space Wolf Bladeguard Veterans
    @sheriffonothing via Instagram
    One of the coolest things about the new Bladeguard Veterans is seeing all of the conversion work people have been doing to make them fit into other chapters. Dan’s conversions here using 30k bits are really great.
  • NOVA Open’s Summer Raffles
    NOVA Open 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.
  • Jason’s Death Scars
    @Waaagh_Ghazkill via Instagram
    Jason’s done some great work here on his White Scars successors chapter.
  • Matt G’s White Scars Bladeguard Veterans
    @Storm_of_Chogoris via Instagram
    Another sweet BGV conversion. Matt has done an incredible job matching his to the White Scars aesthetic with replacement shields and topknots.
  • Spored to be Wild
    @Sughammer via Twitter
    Louis Sugden is at it again, this time painting an old Goff Rocker model with an incredibly rad 80s paintjob.
  • Crimson Fists Bladeguard Veteran
    @astartacus via Instagram
    There’s less conversion work on this BGV than some of the others, but it’s a fine paintjob with a very cool shield and the color scheme is very sharp.
  • Fred the Skorpekh Destroyer

    Fred is a wonderfully gross Skorpekh Destroyer that is in the process of being corrupted/corroded by Nurgle and I am extremely here for it.
