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.

This pair of sicaran tanks are a perfect balance of crispy clean and weathered – and just look at those checkers!
Hello, #WarhammerCommunity. For my first tweet I’ve decided to post the mini I’m most proud of, my kitbashed Emperor’s Children Daemon Prince. I’m excited about joining a very wholesome Twitter community ?

Gareth’s first tweet has a beautifully saturated daemon prince painted with perfect pinks and purples. And as a bonus it’s killing the best (worst) legion. Greg please don’t read this.
Got the whole Possessed gang here, finally done! Absolutely love these models. Although for now I need a short break from my Chaos Marines ?#warhammer40k #WarhammerCommunity #PaintingWarhammer #warmongers pic.twitter.com/XwgOeFu6uh

These possessed are another brilliant example of using bright saturated colors on Chaos models. We love how they step away from the more subdued tones often found in Warhammer.
The sculpting and painting on this Imperial Vice Admiral are just impeccable. A fantastic custom character for a Necromunda campaign.
This flying robot murder baby is going to give me nightmares for weeks. The fantastic use of parts from multiple lines and great colors creates something unique yet fitting perfectly into 40k.
I can’t resist showing off Imperial Fists, especially something as well done as this Leviathan. The mixed in Templar Brethren colors, the weathering, the basing, the OSL, it all comes together into something spectacular.
For the budding game designers among us, or just people who want to add a little more nuance when talking about game design and balance, this 15 minute video looks at how designers have solved 11 different problems.
