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

This pair of Bad Moons big meks are wonderful – it’s a smart idea with a great concept and solid execution. Great paint jobs too.
- Making Necron Terrain

EonsofBattle has a great video on how to make Necron terrain, with free STLs and designs for download to make it easy to print the pieces yourself. They also build everything with traditional hobby methods, and do some cool comparisons between the two.
- Emilio’s Blanchitsu Tithe Collector

This is a really cool conversion piece with lots of great details and in true Blanchitsu fashion it’s also very gritty.

This is a great tutorial video on how to make a billboard that in this case has been repurposed and converted into a watch tower. There are a lot of great techniques on display here.
