Content We Liked: 20th August, 2023

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

Spooky Season’s creeping over the hill, getting closer every darkening day, so lets start off with this stunning lord of the night. Regal, menacing, a little melancholy, the very ideal of Vampiric majesty.


Who ya gonna call? HELLBLASTERS!
by u/butters-chaos in Warhammer40k

Still spooky, though maybe just a tad less serious. A little. Won’t stop bustin’ making us feel good.


Know what else is spooky? Bugs. Space bugs at that. This Psychophage by theminiaturisa is mesmerizingly gross in its gorgeous use of UV paint and high contrast to really sell a translucent, bioluminescent take one of the most gnarly concepts the Tyranids have been gifted with in a long while.


Finishing off with another bug, kinda. Not really. But a very cool take on a Van Saar hover car. Some classic use of plasti-card is all it takes to turn the humble Ridgerunner into a futuristic street racer.
