Content We Liked: July 17, 2022

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

MechaLab’s Looted Gunhauler

Feels like an age since the big Kharadron conversion rush shortly after their release, but here comes MechaLab with an absolute banger, with the heavily modified Mangler Squig as the dirigible balloon being an inspired piece of hobby.

Speaking of fantastic sculpting in a conversion, Pax_acrylica’s highly stylised Mechanicus Automata is a gorgeous piece of work, particularly the fluted helmet and Romanesque shield. Amazingly grimdark.

Words really can’t capture the sinister majesty of this piece nor the rest of thepolysmith’s work, just click through and marvel.

Joseph Saunders’ Painting Tik-Tok

The most magnificently shot cinematic crime against the hobby we’ve ever seen. Bravo.
