Although it’s a big internet out there, the Tabletop 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
There was a piece of art that I saw back in 1994 on the cover of a novel called Plague Daemon, the art was also used on the Realm of Cover book. The art was by Les Edwards. My photo is an homage to his inspiring work. #WarhammerCommunity #warhammer #nurgle pic.twitter.com/IkMQgKaore

This absolutely rules and we love it when people build homages to classic Warhammer art.
Goonhammer’s James Kelling, fresh off winning the Best Overall bracket at the GW Open Series Finale, goes on the Art of War podcast this week to talk about playing with his Craftworlds Eldar.
I love this incredible diorama – the concept on it is just fantastic and the way it tells the story of Kharn and foreshadows his eventual fate is just awesome.

This is such a cool effect and a cool idea. I’m not normally one for using fluorescent paint or doing similar effects, but this one works extremely well.
There is power in a union.
The scale and scope of this is very impressive and the whole thing is cool as hell.
