In Episode 110 of The Independent Characters we talk about the process of building missions in Warhammer 40k. Whether you want to create (or leverage!) the ultimate 40k Tournament Missions, or make a really exciting and fun narrative mission for your event or friends, this is the episode you want to listen to

We enlist aid from some of the best in the tournament scene at the moment to delve into their different (but somewhat similar) philosophies on mission design and what makes for a balanced experience. Reece Robbins (of The Las Vegas Open and Frontline Gaming) and Mike Brandt (of the NOVA Open and NOVA Open Charitable Foundatin) both join us to give us some insight into how the missions for their respective events were developed.

As usual we have our Hobby Progress and games played, which is quite extensive as we participated in a few events over this period of time!

That's not enough you say!? Ok then - how about we throw in a long interview with none other than Black Library author, and probably secret Chaos agent, Aaron Dembski-Bowden for good measure!? This is an amazing interview with insight into many things Black Library and his latest novel The Talon of Horus (on sale now!) without any spoilers.
