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
Artis Opus’s Sunset Doom Scythe

Drybrushing is one of those techniques that gets a bad rap from more established painters, when it’s really a versatile tool that can produce some seriously effective results with a little patience, the gorgeous blending on this Doom Scythe more than testament to that.
Max’s Models’ Fluorescent Tzeentchian Horde

We love Tzeentch daemons that look like they’ve sprung right out of a blacklight poster and these are no exception. Particularly the iridescent Be’lakor tying every eye-watering colour of the army together in one.
Balint Kristof Varga’s Red Scorpions Characters

Red Scorpions are one of those chapter schemes that runs the risk of looking a little bland with its primarily grey/black/white layout with only splashes of yellow and red for contrast. This isn’t the case here, with a beautifully blended slate-grey that surprisingly pops along with some interesting colour blocking for a loyalist Marine.
Maverick Nicolson’s Unfortunate White Scar

Ivan Srijemsi’s Kitbashed Berzerkers

If there’s one small upside to the Khorne Berzerkers kit being literally old enough to buy booze and put a down payment on a house, it’s that it encourages some really creative alternatives by crafty hobbyists. These amalgamations of the newer Chaos Marine, Corpse Grinder and Khorne Bloodbound kits really strand on their own, with the Khorne Daemonkin-era paint scheme pushing them even further beyond.
A Different Ivan’s Grave Guard

Say what you want for square basing, but when you can get models to rank up neatly it really does look a treat, like these particularly spooky Grave Guard, rocking some glowing spectral eyes and the classic Empire Spearman lion shields.
A double whammy entry this week, with two different approaches for corrupting the Imperium’s angriest Emperor-botherer. The first an AoS-ification into a Mighty Lord of Khorne, complete with some Bloodbound lackies replacing the servitors and some beautiful sculpting work, the second one of the slickest NMM schemes we’ve seen for a strikingly imposing Iron Warriors Warsmith. We dig ’em both a lot!
