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
A Hymn of Serpents’ Nighthaunt Chronomantic Cogs
@AHymnofSerpents via Twitter
One of the coolest things in Age of Sigmar spaces is seeing people take the generic Endless Spells and give them a specific faction twist to fit their armies. This one goes an extra mile by cannibalising a cheap pocket watch, some spare spooky bois and a sick saturated neon paintjob, we love it.
Will of the Hivemind’s Psybrood

Speaking of cool neon paintjobs, spikes of bright pink energy punctuate the wonderfully patterned chitin of these Tyranid ‘thropes, lead by a simply but effectively converted upright Maleceptor. Exceptional space bugs.
Holy Fireman’s Dark Mechanicus Warpsmith-Tyrannis
@TheHolyFireman via Twitter
I’m sitting at my desk, putting together a Lord Discordant’s Helstalker and thinking to myself “man, this would be an amazing base for some super cool Dark Mechanicus weirdos. I glance up to my monitor to refresh Twitter and bam, this absolute beast of a mashup appears. Not only an effortless twist of Cawl and the Helstalker, but a wonderfully grubby and gross paint scheme punctuated by this week’s secret phrase, bright neon pink highlights. Fantastic.
Marco Frisoni Just Straight Up Dunks On Everyone in Under 4 Hours

Goddamn. The entire new Rotmire Creed to that high a standard in under 4 hours. Marco’s just styling on us at this point, but at the very least is merciful enough to leave us this video on how understanding colour theory can massively change up how you approach painting miniatures.

Warcry Heart of Ghur Review- Core Rules and Models: Did you know it’s been 3 years or so since the release of the original Warcry set? Time flies when you’re battling for the Everchosen’s favour huh. Join Raf and Fowler as they crack open the new starter box and examine what a new edition means for Age of Sigmar’s skirmish spin-off.
Goonhammer Reacts- Warmachine MkIV Announcement: Well that came out of nowhere. After floating dead in the water since the fumbled release of MkIII, Privateer Press suddenly announced a brand new reinvigoration of their flagship game with a near Age of Sigmar level overhaul to its rules, factions and setting, and our resident Warjack touchers are here to discuss what this might mean for the once mighty game.
