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
- Vylka Fenryka Bladeguard Veteran

This is an extremely cool BGV Space Wolves conversion and I can’t wait to see it finished. I’m always in awe of people who can do lots of custom green stuff work like this.
- Heather Armstead’s Minis
@the_real_iron_hand via Instagram
Heather is a trans-humeral dominant arm amputee learning to paint with her off hand and a prosthetic arm. So far, she’s killing it. Also, she posts pictures of cats on her insta. It’s good shit.
- Hyper Neon Iron Golems
EpicDuckStudios via r/WarCry
This loving tribute to late 80s/early 90s action figures reimagines WarCry iron golems as colorful Playmates action figures. It’s great.
- Master of the Universe WarCry terrain
@airbornegrove via Instagram
While we’re on the action figures kick, check out this insanely great MotU-inspired WarCry terrain. Love the idea of fighting over Castle Greyskull or Snake Mountain.
- The Carcosa Club’s Jungle Board
@nocturnal_brush via Instagram
This sick jungle terrain board is exactly the kind of thing I aspire to create for my own tables. It’s beautiful but also functional.
- LE’s Heresy Era Dark Angels Terminator
@1927822LE via Twitter
This is just a really nicely painted 30k Dark Angels Terminator. Great NMM effects.
- Gonders’ Khornate Chaos Knight
@gonders via Twitter
I’m a sucker for cool Chaos Knights – it’s such a good model for conversions. Gonders’ is light on the conversion aspect, but the paint job is insanely good. Be sure to look at the photos full size to see the freehand detail.
- Battle-Damaged Marine with a carved-out helmet
@BhmDhm via r/Warhammer40k
This is a great conversion and I’m still in awe of the work it must have taken to have a space marine helmet cut away to show the face underneath.
- Owen Patten’s Twitter Feed
@Owen_Patten via Twitter
Owen’s a GW miniatures designer responsible for designing the Zone Mortalis/Necromunda terrain. His feed is full of great tips and tricks for assembling and converting the terrain and it’s a pro follow.
- The Slaughter Chaos Warband
@gate_eternity via Twitter
This creepy warband is coming along very nicely.
- Dimosxls’ very cool Foul Blightspawn
@Dimosxls via Instagram
This is a great paint job – the glass effects here are just excellent.
- Nikki Kolls’ Space Wolves Bladeguard Veterans
@nikkikills via Twitter
We started with SW BGVs, we’re ending with them. Nikki’s got some very cool BGVs here, with a simple and clean look we can appreciate.
