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
This new mathammer web app calculates average results of one unit attacking another but also allows you to save profiles, apply modifiers to rolls, add effects like Blast and Tesla, and it’s completely free. Great stuff.
