Content We Liked: December 27, 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. 

Things We’re Excited For

Paint Crusade 2021

If you’re looking for something to watch in the new year, consider checking out Paint Crusade on Twitch. Paint Crusade is a collaborative live streaming challenge setup by The Hobby Room and Coda_Paints Twitch channels.

Taking place over an entire weekend, each Paint Crusade is a hobby-based challenge. The first crusade challenge was to “Paint half of the Indomitus box in 24 hours”, with Ceri on The Hobby Room team completing a massive 22 models to team Coda‘s equally impressive two models.*
On the 2nd to 3rd of January, join us for the 3rd crusade, the two channels will duke it out once again, attempting to paint trying to paint as points as they can, with each 500pts scoring ‘a lap’.


The Las Vegas NOpen 2021

Goonhammer will be part of the upcoming Las Vegas Nopen, a special stream event organised by 40K Stats Centre that’s going to bring together some of the world’s finest players in a unique style of RTT on 29th-31st January. With many people across the world still locked down, this event promises to make sure one of the biggest weekends in the 40K calendar stays special, and keep us of us entertained while stuck at home, all while raising some money for charity. Stay tuned for more on this event on Goonhammer in the future.


On the Internet at Large

    This is a great paintjob that both shows a great way to paint snakeskin/scales and also dark skin. Fantastic work on some great models.
  • Alex’s Magnetized Kill Team Board

    This is a really cool idea and almost makes me want to play some more Kill Team. Almost.
  • Em’s Silent King

    The Silent King model is a huge pain but the results are definitely worth it. Em’s done a wonderful job with the model here, including some amazing fade work on the Menhir.
  • Ash McEwan’s Gargant

    In the same way that painting the void dragon will get you a quick ticket to CWL, so will painting a Mega Gargant. Also this one rips and the cartoon shading effect is cool as hell.
  • Rodge’s HeroQuest Orks
    @RodgeRules via Twitter
    Rodge has done a great job painting these 30 year-old minis in a way that shows off how well they hold up even after all this time. I love the orc skin shading and the purple blades.
  • Catpipe’s Lego Imperator

    This is a really cool and ambitious project and it’s exactly what it sounds like.
  • There’s No Place Like Home
    @sious69 via Twitter
    This is an amazing diorama with great colors and a ton of detail. Just a ton of great stuff going on.
  • Mjg’s Death Company
    @Mjg_Paints via Twitter
    I think this guy is missing the skin on his face? The model is equal parts amazing and terrifyingly creepy. Great stuff.
