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
Draconian’s Teeny Tiny Itsy Bitsy Gollum

There’s miniature painting, and then there’s miniature painting. Never mind that painting so finely at such a tiny scale is a feat unto itself, but to have variations of skintone, bruises and dirt picked out is incredible. Wow.
Adam’s Crimson Keep of Kastelai Display Board

Display boards are one of those areas of the hobby that lets people really flex their skills and Nagash’s teeth this is a flex on a grand scale, especially when you consider what it must have taken to lug it to Adepticon and assemble it back together. We can only assume this starts blaring when you’re in its presence.
Muffin-Cold’s Doktor Otto Orktavius
u/Muffin-Cold via reddit
POWER OF DA WAAAGH IN MY ‘ANDS SPOIDERGIT. You’ve always gotta love an Ork conversion that throws subtly out the window altogether and this is one of those in the best ways. Maulerfiend tentacles are one of those evergreen conversion pieces that everyone gets to have fun with.
meevesonline’s Feudal Imperial Guard “Chimera”
u/meevesonline via reddit
Got to hand it to Imperial Guard players, when some of them get a great concept they grab it and run with it all the way. This is delightfully goofy and anachronistic in a way that absolutely works, almost Blanchian in its mashup of Medieval grime and Sci-fi grit. Bold choice to use increasingly rare Bretonnian pieces for the footsloggers too.
skert.01’s 2nd Edition Skorpekh Lord

Speaking of mashing up the old and the new, we have this utterly wonderful Destroyer Lord converted to resemble the ol’ scowl bots of the earliest post-Chaos Android Necrons. Lotta love with this one, capturing that era’s hand-sculpted look while managing to seamlessly blend in the CAD precise lines of the Skorpekh’s base skeleton (heh) along with the simple, striking and era accurate paint.
Lightning Count’s Gundam Repair Bay

Gunpla modellers are on another level I swear, ascendant god-hobbyists on a different plane to the rest of us. Lets not just paint a mecha to a gorgeously high degree, lets build an entire loading bay for it, complete with multiple forms of light rigging and a whole engineering team plus all the industrial kit they’d need. Stunning.
