Content We Liked: October 23rd, 2022

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.

On the Internet at Large

This is one of those cases where our trite commentary cannot come close to aptly describing the sensation at looking at these incredible feats of miniature weirdness. Just behold and marvel.

Continuing the amazing trend of the Mega Gargant kit being the perfect canvas for some of the most elaborate and out there conversions around, we get this Mega Plaguebearer ready to make his grumbles your village’s problem.

The HH White Scars range is, without exaggeration, one of the best to ever come from that studio and paintjobs like this only reinforce why. Incredibly restrained and selectively intricate at the same time, utterly menacing with martial might.

If there was ever a trend in miniature painting that rightfully continues to endure it’s dirty yellow with black/white Ska checks. And for good reason, it owns.

A fantastic lil’ costuming hack just in time for Goth Christmas next weekend.


This Week on Goonhammer

Goonhammer Reviews

Warhammer Underworlds: Gnarlwood Box Set Reviews- Another year another season of Underworlds has rolled around, with the Chaos Weirdos of the Gnarlspirit Pack squaring off against the spooky bois of the Sons of Velmorn to kick off the war for the wildlands of Gnarlwood.

Darktide Closed Beta: Goonhammer First Impressions– Fatshark’s eagerly anticipated spin off of the ratsmashing good time that was Vermintide dropped the second of its closed Betas last weekend, and a bunch of your very own Goons were lucky enough to be counted among the Rejects, bringing you their first impressions from the depths of the Hive.

A-Case Kane Magnetic Case Review– Magnetic cases are increasingly becoming a popular trend for miniature transport over the traditional foam. A-Case was kind enough to send us their new Kane pattern case, a modular monster of a thing capable of carrying entire armies. Is it worth the extra effort?

Hammer of Math 40k: The Cost of Overcharging (Imperial Edition)– Now to be clear, you should Always Be Overcharging because not Overcharging your plasma is a coward’s move, but for sake of argument what would happen should you Overcharge a little too hard?

Battletech: Unit Roles– Our Battletech coverage continues with a look at the more tactical aspects of the game, including what roles your Mechs can bring to your Lance/Star and what Mechs might fill said roles best (Urbie, every role).

Other Cool Stuff
