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
- Stealth Suit Phasing out of holding position

I will never get sick of the cool camouflage effects people do on stealth suits. It’s one of the coolest things about the T’au faction.
- Arcane Rubber Hobby’s Insane Diver Diorama

This is one of the coolest dioramas that I have ever seen, with an amazing lighting effect triggered by adding a magnetized seagull to the top of the model. Just ridiculously cool shit.
- Tom Hutchings’ Librarian

Tom has done an insanely good job painting this Blood Angels terminator librarian. I love the bright colors on it.

Ivan’s done a fantastic job painting Valerian and Aleya recently and in this thread he talks about his method for painting golden armor. Pro click.

The paint job on this turret is great, with some really smooth dark gray shading.
- Primaris Kevin’s Van Saar

Our own “Primaris” Kevin (of Hammer of Math fame) has his own Twitter where he posts minis. Recently he’s been working on Van Saar.
- RogueShader’s Assault Intercessor
@RogueShader via Twitter
The shading and weathering work that have gone into this model are insane and the results are gorgeous. I’m looking forward to RogueShader painting Abaddon.
- Another rad Kharadron Overlords Airship
@anamnesisstudio via Twitter
I never get sick of seeing cool Kharadron Overlords ships and this thing is massive.
- Dana Howl’s Skorpekh Destroyer Lord
@dana_howl via Twitter
Dana’s insane two-year hobby streak continues with some wonderfully pink Necrons and an excellent Skorpekh Lord.
- Rob Hawkins’ Verminlord
The Skaven don’t get enough love – the Verminlord is a great model and Rob has absolutely done it justice here.
