Episode 163 sees The Independent Characters return after a short delay due to illness of one of the guest hosts. When we come back though, we come back strong! This episode is an extended "Warrior Lodge". The Warrior Lodge segments are a moderated discussion about topics which are relevant to the Warhammer universe and community in which we all participate. To help us through this episode, we have three special guests who have joined us on previous episodes. Colin, Jody, and Josh join Carl to talk about topics which have been on our minds and possibly the minds of others throughout the community. Then we launch into a special interview with Ross Watson. You may know the name from all of the work on the RPG Warhammer 40k games from Fantasy Flight Studios. Ross is working on a new Warahammer 40k RPG, called "Wrath and Glory" with a brand new publisher. We get a bit of the inside scoop on what is going on with this new game and what we can expect! We hope you enjoy the show.

Episode 161 of The Independent Characters brings you our latest episode in the "Show of Force" series. This time it's The Angelic Host! More commonly known as The Blood Angels. To help us out with this episode, we have brought Chris Morgan from the Forge The Narrative Podcast and Brian Harvey, who is just starting out with a Blood Angels army, from The Splintermind Dark Eldar Podcast! Additionally we have a remote interview with Paul Murphy, Chris' co-host on Forge The Narrative. Be warned that these types of shows tend to make people buy armies. We're just saying... We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 160 of The Independent Characters covers part 2 of our revisit to the question “What army should I play?”. We hope you are relaxed or have a lot of painting to do, because this episode clocks in at over four hours! Back in Episodes 42 and 43 we ran two linked shows which explored each of the faction (on the surface) and sought to answer just that. At the time, the show notes were so long the hosts decided it would be better to break it up into two episodes. One which was an Imperial Edition, and the other which was a Xenos Edition. Those are some great episodes, but that was all the way back in 5th edition and SO much has changed since then (and some things have stayed the same!) that we felt it was time to update this series. We aim to provide you the definitive guide for looking at all your choices for Warhammer 40,000 armies and making the right one for you. This is part two of these revised episodes, the Xenos and Chaos Edition. On top of all of that great content, we have our Forbidden Lore Segment near the end of the show. This is an hour long discussion with Black Library Author John French about his latest book, Horusian Wars: Resurrection! I was lucky enough to be joined by Geoff Hummel, our original co-host for this great interview. WARNING: Spoilers abound in this episode though! If you are interested in reading this book - you may NOT want to listen to this interview until you have completed it. We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 159 of The Independent Characters revisits the question “What army should I play?”. Strap in because this is a long episode with some great pieces! Back in Episodes 42 and 43 we ran two linked shows which explored each of the faction (on the surface) and sought to answer just that. At the time, the show notes were so long the hosts decided it would be better to break it up into two episodes. One which was an Imperial Edition, and the other which was a Xenos Edition. Those are some great episodes, but that was all the way back in 5th edition and SO much has changed since then (and some things have stayed the same!) that we felt it was time to update this series. We aim to provide you the definitive guide for looking at all your choices for Warhammer 40,000 armies and making the right one for you. The first of these episodes, the Imperial Edition, is this one. But don't worry, we are going to follow up episode 159 with an updated version of the Xenos Edition in episode 160, by the end of the month. Additionally, we have a couple of AMAZING interviews. The first is with Jes Bickham of the Warhammer 40k Design Studio! We ask him a bunch of questions around the development of the game and gain some insights into what the thinking was on many of the questions that have arisen since it’s release. THEN we talk to Dave Taylor, who tells us all about the NOVA Open Charitable Foundations efforts to raise money for those in need, and how you can get a chance to win some amazing prizes by helping out. We hope you enjoy the show! Time Stamps: 0:00:00 - Show Intro and Host Introduction 0:08:45 - Workbench and Hobby Progress 0:58:50 - Which Army should you choose?

Episode 158 of The Independent Characters see us discussing the evolution of the Warhammer 40,000 lore. We have seen the timeline move forward a bit and we spend some time talking about what that all means. Taking a look at the various factions and what the impact of the changes are on each of them. Additionally, we have an interview with Jay Wilson. He was the original creative director for Dawn of War 1. We spend some time talking about that much beloved video game and how it all came to pass.

Episode 157 of The Independent Characters provides you with our further impressions of The New Warhammer 40,000! (aka: 8th Edition) Now that we have had time to play many, many games of The New Warhammer 40,000, we feel a little more qualified to give you our opinions on the game. Recently someone stated on our Facebook page that it seems as though all we do is talk about how much we love Games Workshop. Well if you are that person, and that bothers you, you may want to skip this episode. Once we go through the regular Hobby Progress and Games Played sections, we get down to our continuing discussion of the game, the changes, and what we think it all means. Then, in keeping with the show spirit of making you feel like a part of our gaming group, we pull in four other players from our group and have some discussion with them about their opinions and thoughts on the game. All in all it makes for some pretty interesting and entertaining discussion. Then, just when you think it's over, we have an interview with painter, artist, renaissance man, Caleb Wissenback. Caleb has just passed over to Carl the Chaos Reaver Titan he was commissioned to paint, and the results are incredible! So incredible, we brought Caleb on to share how the whole process worked. We also have some discussion about kicking Adan off the show. You will have to listen to find out why. We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 156 of The Independent Characters continues to explore our early impressions of The New Warhammer 40,000, but the main focus of the show is about how to bring new players into the game. With the release of the new edition, the time couldn't be more perfect for people to join the community. The game is easier to learn than ever, but contains enough depth that older players are returning in droves. After a fairly long hobby progress section, we go over some thoughts and ideas on what you can do to help ease people into playing Warhammer 40,000 and not scare them off! We hope you enjoy the show.

Episode 155 of The Independent Characters provides you with our first impressions of The New Warhammer 40,000! (aka: 8th Edition) While not a totally in depth look at the game, we provide an overview of how it works and what our initial impressions are. We are certain there will be more to come as we get to play more! We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 154 of the Independent Characters is all about Shadow Wars: Armageddon! Ok well maybe not ENTIRELY about SW:A, we have a bunch of 8th edition discussion in here as well as a couple of great interviews! Our first interview, is with the Terrafirmer! They have a brilliant gaming table product that you are going to want to hear about and see (See show notes links below!) We then launch into a discussion about Shadow Wars: Armageddon. A tremendous offering from Games Workshop, where the initial run of boxes and rule books sold out too fast! We go into the background the game is based on, some of its historical relation to Necromunda, and then talk about the rules and campaign system a bit. We then launch into an interview with Matei Lungu (Or Matt as he is known!) about the Warhammer 40k scene in Bucharest, Romania. This is hopefully the first in an ongoing segment titled Warhammer 40k: Around the World, in which we talk to different people from around the world and compare similarities and differences to their gaming scene. As a side note, Carl has been sidelined with some family issues and so we recognize some of the links didn’t make it into the show notes that should be there. We will add those in the next day or so on the Facebook page. We hope you enjoy!
