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
Manifested Minis’ Blood Bowl Sponsor Ads

Blood Bowl wouldn’t be Blood Bowl without its painfully puntactular sponsor names and these stadium ads are the perfect blend of excellent hobby and groan-worthy wordplay.
This is a new podcast, but a worthwhile addition to the crowded space. we never knew we needed an hour-and-a-half examination of the parallels between Charlemagne’s empire and the Imperium of man.
Col_Festus’ Converted Sanctus

A simple and effective conversion for a more subdued take on the Genestealer Sanctus, pushed above by a striking paint job. We particularly love the Alien Nation-esque head spots.
Kit Bash Cat’s Meditating Wraithseer

An inspired concept for a conversion with an inspirational motivation behind it. An wonderful way to mark your progress as a hobbyist and a person. We love it.
Pavel Barnev’s Jiggly Marine Animation

(Flashing lights warning for our photosensitive readers out there.)
We adore this wiggly lil’ Smoosh Marine and can’t get enough watching him bound his way into the fray, along with some of the crunchiest Bolter action out of any piece of 40k media.
Alexy Potorochin’s Flesh Tearer Portrait

We need to feature more artworks on this column, especially to the level of this piece which amply captures the brooding menace behind the Blood Angels’ problem child successor.
Wee Model Painter’s Oil-Painted Cityscape Timelapse

Now this is some next level combination of hobbies, with Wee Model Painter using their traditional painting chomps to create a background cityscape for their Titanicus board.
DD Builds’ Warlord Titan
@DatXDiver via Twitter.
Holy hell. The FW scale Warlord has always been an eager canvas for people to flex their artistic muscles but this is next level. Even the blue panels are inlaid with free-handed patterns once you look closely. A walking, laser-spewing art installation if there ever was one.
