Welp, Christmas is over and now it’s back to the content mines.
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
Marc Masclans paints faces

Marc does fantastic work on faces, and the end result is often indistinguishable from a painting. It’s worth checking out their semi-tutorials here.
Chris Burwood’s Stormcast Eternals
@BurwoodChris via Twitter
Chris has done an incredible job on these Stormcast Primes, which are loaded with detail and character. The blue looks great.
Nathaniel’s Sampson Heavy Mining Rig
@Natman1982 via Twitter
I absolutely love the work that’s been done into converting up this Genestealer Cults Shadowsword. It looks incredible and the way it mixes the baneblade and goliath kits is just great.
Coconut Crab Leviathan Tutorial
Catgut Painting via YouTube
The brown-and-orange “coconut crab scheme has become very popular since people first saw it, and since then there have been a lot of folks trying to figure out how to do Hive Fleet Leviathan versions. This tutorial walks through the process.
Gonders paints a McFarlane Space Marine
@Gonders via Twitter
I love seeing the work people put in to these larger marines and the amount of additional detail and weathering they’re able to accomplish. Gonders has done an exception job with this Intercessor.
Mattias’ Sword Brethren
@midtoneminis via Instagram
This is some incredible work, with some amazing detail and shading on a mini that is ostensibly just clad in black armor. Love the face and pose.
@Col_Festus via Twitter
The new Lokhust heavy destroyers look great and really just beg the question why we didn’t get new regular destroyers. Festus has done an amazing job with these and the staging on these photos rules.
Nikos’ Meka Squighogs
@Just_Nikos via Twitter
These conversions are coming along very nicely, and I can’t wait to see the finished product. It’s a sweet idea.
This ridiculously cool Heldrake
@Sekaino118 via Twitter
I absolutely adore this heldrake. The fire effect on the wings is fantastic, and it gives the whole thing a glowing, otherworldly look.
