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

- Sergey Gybin’s Dark Angel Breacher

This is a beautiful paint job with lots of wonderful heraldic details. I’m a sucker for checker patterns on marines armor, though.
- Slow Painter’s Weirdboyz

These are some great conversions that really show off some cool effects. Also I’m just dumbfounded by the idea of taking a Yncarne model and using half of it for a Weirdboy conversion.
- Oliver Spaeth’s Custom X-Wing
@Oliver_spaeth via Instagram
This is an insanely detailed paint job on a model that’s smaller than you’d think. The freehand pilot is a fantastic additional detail.
- Karl Kopinski Sketches
@karlkopinski via Instagram
Karl’s a great artist whose linework I very much admire. He’s been in the hospital recently, but that hasn’t stopped him from pushing out some rad sketches. He’s a pro follow on Insta.
- Gavin Garza’s Blood Raven
@gavin_painting_models via Instagram
The level of detail on this model’s face is amazing and Gavin’s done a wonderful job with the little weathering details on the armor.
- I don’t know what this thing is but it rules
@totally_not_panicking via Instagram
This is an incredibly inspired conversion using a Kingdom Death spell model and the end result is one of the creepiest, most interesting models I’ve seen in a while.
