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
- Dave Latham’s Indomitus Blood Angels
@DaveLatham1978 via Twitter
There’s a ton of cool models in the Indomitus box and I applaud anyone who has managed to finish the full set of them. Also there’s an Impulsor here. Good stuff.
- Eric’s White Scars ATV
@Col_Festa via Twitter
I’m generally not a fan of the marine ATV model but the pant job on this one is so good it makes me rethink that. The whites are sooooo smooth and the weathering gives it an awesome almost cel-shaded look.
- Rapid Tabletop’s Van Saar Assassin
@rapid_tabletop via Instagram
In advance of the release of House of Artifice, RT has done a fantastic job converting a Genestealer assassin into a Van Saar unit.
- Grey_knight_Paladinx’s space shark daemon prince

This is a truly FINTASTIC conversion with a JAWESOME paint job. Great stuff.
- Den of Imagination’s Slaanesh Knight
@doiStudio via Twitter
This is a wonderful conversion with some great painting detail that just screams “ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?!”
- Marc’s Shadowseer
@marcdediego via Twitter
Marc has done a great job with this model and the custom big pink swirl around it makes for a great effect and a striking piece.
- MechaLab’s Squig Riggers
@mecha_lab via Instagram
These are some wonderful floaty boys and if you haven’t seen MechaLab’s conversion work making a bunch of Goblin Kharadron Overlords with Squig balloons, I highly recommend you click through and see it for yourself. It’s just wonderful stuff.
- Tyberos, the Red Wake Conversion
@blightforge via Instagram
This is a really sick conversion of Tyberos using the Abaddon model as a base.
- Museum Quality Train Station TutorialLuke Towan via YouTube
Some of our crew are dangerously close to falling down the model trains rabbit hole. The upside is that you get the occasional awesome piece of content from that world, like this video showing how you can make a museum-quality terrain piece of a model train station.
- Tyrat’s White Scars Librarian
@Tyrat_VI via Twitter
This is a great conversion of a White Scars Stormseer that uses parts from the Judiciar to create a great Samurai look.
