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

Ash nailed the look they were going for here (light effects underwater) – I can’t wait to see the finished model.
- Me-U’s Space Marine Petting a Catte

- Ben Komets’ Ratling Tank

A project a year in the making, this tank is equal parts amazing and adorable. Big Metal Slug vibes from this thing.
- Leonard’s 40k Train
@LeonardDime via Twitter
The second 40k train built from terrain kits the account has shown, and just wonderfully well done. Reminds me a lot of the Ghost Train from FF6, actually.
- Christof Keil’s 3rd Edition Black Templars Diorama
@k03rnl via Instagram
Just amazing work bringing this Blanche classic to live. The “Last Stand of the Crimson Fists” first edition cover has been done to death but you never see a recreation of the third edition cover. This rules.
- WarhammerTV’s Guide to Painting Darker Skin Tones
WarhammerTV via YouTube
A great video tutorial on tackling some skin tones that hobbyists might be less familiar with painting.
- VictorQ’s Banshees
@VictorQuesRamos via Twitter
These are cool models and Victor has done a good job making them appear appropriately ghastly.
