Content We Liked: October 18, 2020

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

  • Louise Sugden’s Goff Rockers

    We’ve linked to these before during the WIP phase, but it was well worth it to come back to the completed project. The detail and conversion work on these is fantastic. Especially the speaker squig.
  • The Void Dragon, decked out in chrome
    @Paledaemon via r/Warhammer40k
    This is by far the best paintjob I’ve seen on any C’Tan, let alone the Void Dragon. It’s just an incredibly slick look and I love everything about it.
  • Vilitch the Curseling
    @hou_jae via Instagram
    I’m a sucker for good linework, and hou_jae does some great work. Vilitch is a character that doesn’t get a ton of love, so it’s cool to see some cool art of the character.
  • PaintVagrant’s Spears of the Emperor Assault Intercessors
    Mini Fights!!! via YouTube
    We’re big fans of the Spears of the Emperor on account of they’re in some pretty kickass novels. PV has done a fantastic job with these Assault Intercessors and making them fit what we’d imagined.
  • Zealsight’s Sanguine Blade Guard
    @zealsight via Instagram
    One of the best things about having a ton of bespoke chapter shields in Horus Heresy for stuff like breachers and Blood Angels is that it means we get to see a ton of sick Bladeguard Veterans conversions using the shields. This Sanguine Blade Guard Veteran is one such example, with a great paint job. Bonus: Check out the Flesh Tearers one they did.
  • Pegastyx takes on the Mega Gargant
    @pegastyx via Twitter
    As soon as we saw the Mega-gargant, we started wondering if Pegastyx would do something with it and we weren’t disappointed.
  • Krazy_Doug’s Deathwatch Lieutenant
    @krazy_doug via Twitter
    Now that the Deathwatch get Lieutenants, we’ll get to see more cool models using the 341 primaris lieutenant models GW has made. Krazy_doug’s is particularly cool, with some great face details and some clean armor.
  • Rictus’ Nurgle Conversions
    @Rictus40k via Twitter
    Some models are beautiful. Others are stunningly gross in a way that’s captivating. These fall into the latter category, a collection of wonderfully gross conversions that look like you wouldn’t want to touch them with bare hands.
  • Kirioth’s Necron Overlord
    @kirioth via Twitter
    This is a really cool conversion idea that makes the Necron Overlord model even creepier – the long, spindly legs make for something incredibly unsettling to look at.
  • Samurai, Daimyo, 1750
    @Alina.arth via Instgram
    This samurai has been painted to a wonderfully high standard, and the detailing on the cloth and face is insane. I feel like regularly puts on a clinic on how to paint fabrics.
  • Christian’s Imperial Fists Outriders
    @geltbalthasar via Instgram
    These IF Outriders have some impressive detail, and I’m a sucker for weathering on yellow paint.
