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
Zeal Sight’s Argel Tal and Cyrene

If there was ever a model that might tempt me into Heresy’s resin-dust crusted grasp it would be Argel Tal’s possessed majesty, and Zeal Sight has done a hell of a job with this rendition. Double kudos for the custom mini of Cyrene, which dodges the risk of crowding the base with some careful positioning and a complimentary pose, giving a certain theatrical flare to the pair.
Craftsman Jono’s Body Horror Tyranid Kill Team

Sometimes you’ll see something in this hobby that’ll make you go “What the hell is that?!” in the best way, and these uncomfortably pallid and fleshy Tyranids are exactly in that category. The more you look, the more wonderful uncomfortable details pop out, simply fantastic.
Bob’s Hive Fleet Tiotl Parrot Tyranids

And at the complete opposite end of the Tyranid horror scale, these feathery fiends are one of the most out there concepts we’ve ever seen for a ‘Nid army, yet it works on so many levels. Can’t help but worry it’ll take more than a box of crackers and ruining your wallpaper to satisfy these birbs though.
Bard Jaskier’s Lego Ogre Kingdoms Diorama

Want a guaranteed way to get onto CWL? Lego renditions of Warhammer every time. Particularly love the massive custom-built Ogre figure, the rounded plates giving the impression of an mighty Ogorish physique, and the varied looks on the unfortunate “ingredients” and the Gnoblar trappers.
James’ Spirit of the Mountain (with Corgi)

From the moment it was revealed, the Alarath Spirit of the Mountain centrepiece was always gonna be one of those models that painters would go crazy for, and James’ rendition here is no exception. The simple but effective reposing, the beautifully subdued palate and the complimentary basing really tie the whole thing together into a tremendously evocative piece.
Also there’s a tiny Corgi and it’s just The Most Precious.
Weasel Minis’ Fences

Look I don’t know what to say for this one, these miniature scale interlocking fences are just neat as hell. Why don’t we see more fences in our Sci-Fi and Fantasy wargames? Surely the Imperium has fences made of skulls somewhere. The Historical gamers are ahead of us on this, we can’t allow a fencing gap.
