Although it’s a big internet out there, the Tabletop 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.

Absolutely gorgeous gradients on these XV8s, with a poppy orange that absolutely snatches your attention towards them. Amazing work, backed up with some stellar complimentary colours.
Some insanely detailed banner work here that has me finding new little things the more and more I look at them. Absolutely boosted by the highlighting on the folds to really make everything stick out that much more.
Squigs. In. Spaaaaaaaace.
Sick use of Green Stuff to create an absolutely unique Beastboss, with some very cool theming, topped off with bitz galore. This entire page is a sculpting goldmine, full of strange gribblies and conversions. Check it out!
Creative use of the blank visor space to tell a quick, dirty grim-dark tale of some poor fuck-o getting in the way of the Glorious Four-Armed Revolution. Freehand and storytelling go hand-in-hand to elevate models, and this executes both perfectly.
Slowly but surely I’m working along the shroud, I would love to have it all the blue completed tomorrow#Warhammercommunity #warhammer40k #warhammer40000 #gamesworkshop #hobbypainter #paintingwarhammer #miniaturepainting #vindicareassassin #operativeunbralsix #wip #warhammerwip pic.twitter.com/6YBfBFphDQ

Fucking. Wow. Continuing the talk about Freehand and elevating your paintjobs, this is a rad as hell effect that takes it beyond. Pictures like these make me forget that there’s supposed to be a sniper this kit came with.
Space Marine kits from all kids provide fantastic fodder for conversions, and it’s good to see people making use of the Primaris range to spice up their HH armies. Excellent work on the popping blue against the grimey white as well.
This Week on Goonhammer
Another spread of Reviews this week, with the review of the two new Battletomes for the Hedonites of Slaanesh and the Blades of Khorne, along with a review of the new warscrolls. On the 40K end, Dylan & SRM have reviewed the new JoyToy Imperial Fist & Kommando Figurines, Norman & Rob review the Armies of Vashtorr, and a Hammer of Math on how disappointing our favourite Spindly Boi Vashtorr is.
To top it off, for all you 5e, we here at the Turn Order team have given you a lovely list of TTRPG alternatives to try so you can finally break free.

Outside of the Warhammer sphere, Summer covers how to better pilot your armada to success with only a picture of an onion, Infinity has some new profiles for your (possibly) favourite set of neo-catholic weirdos, and for all your rank-and-flank nerds out there, a helpfully illustrated article on how to better maximize your mooks potential on the battlefield.

Marc from the Historicals team has written a wonderfully helpful article on the wonderful world of rigging, and how to make it as modular as you’d like. Great stuff.
