Episode 170 of The Independent Characters has us discussing Adepticon 2018. It was through the generous purchases of listeners such as yourselves that we were able to make it possible for all of us to go and meet with various guests that you will hear over the next few episodes (including this one!)

After a lengthy Hobby Progress section we will move into a discussion about Adepticon 2018. This is followed up by three separate interviews. The first is with Dave Taylor in support of his Armies & Legions & Hordes kickstarter. You should really check this thing out as it only has a couple of days left as of this recording. Then we move into an interview with Uncle Atom of Tabletop Minions fame to speak about his companies app 'Gamefor' which you may find interesting. And last, but certainly not least, we have an interview with Teras of Geek Nation Tours

We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 169 of The Independent Characters continues our four part series looking into each of the Chaos Gods. This episode, we are covering Slaanesh.

While this Chaos Gods future is somewhat up in the air at the moment, we have high hopes that GW will embrace the deity for all it is worth, and in all aspects. We think you will enjoy this Chaos Resurgent episode!

We also include in this episode two different interviews. One interview is with Colin Ward, from Legalized Mischief Productions and the other is from Kat & Caleb of CK Studios. We think there is some great information in both of these pieces.

We really hope you enjoy what we have for you in Episode 169!

Episode 167 of The Independent Characters brings you about two and a half hours of overdue entertainment! This episode we are focusing on our new four part series; Chaos Resurgent. In this series we will discuss all aspects of each of the four Chaos Gods. To get us started we have Nurgle. We will do a 'Deep Dive' into all things Nurgle, from the concept of the God themselves, all the way to their worshippers and how they are best represented on the tables of Warhammer 40,000.

The episode is well overdue as a result of Carl getting quite sick over the last few weeks. But we are back in action and back on target. We have already laid out plans for our next episode.

We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 166 of The Independent Characters comes in at around three hours as we go back over all of the releases from Games Workshop of 2017 and complete our annual retrospective.

During our Hobby Progress section you will get to hear how much of our 2017 Commitments we failed to accomplish and what we did instead.

Then it is on to two full hours of discussion around releases and what they meant to the game of Warhammer 40k, the community, and the company.

We hope that all of you are having a wonderful holiday season and we look forward to seeing you in 2018. Thank you for listening all throughout 2017. We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode 164 of The Independent Characters is late. Super late in fact. Let us explain:

As you will hear in this episode we have an interview with Steel Wool - a video game company working on a great new game for Warhammer 40k. Unfortunately, we also talked a lot about this interview and its contents. Their announcement was subsequently delayed due to… reasons. As a result, we could not release the episode or even just remove the interview and release it on time, and in fact released it out of order (Episode 165 dropped a few days ago).

We apologize for the delay and we have learned our lesson to never again tie an episode to a PR Announcement of a release!

So with that out of the way, let’s talk about what this episode actually contains! First we have a fairly long and meandering Hobby Progress discussion which also weighs in on a few new announcements from GW and other thoughts and ideas about the community.

We then move into our (delayed) interview with Steel Wool about their new Betrayal at Calth video game! Trust us when we tell you that this thing is VERY cool. Listen to the interview and you will see why.

We then have an interview with returning guests Kat and Caleb of CK Studios. They have some amazing events coming up and we get some insight into what they have going on.

Last but certainly not least, we have a short discussion about our home campaign The Permutation of Arasys, which we have been playing through. We talk about the structure of the campaign, how it is going so far, and what our expectations are going forward.

Again we apologize for the delays in releasing the show, but we really hope you enjoy what we have for you.

Episode 165 of The Independent Characters is a super-sized, nearly four hour episode! The first thing you need to know though, is that this episode is being released in ADVANCE of Episode 164 as a result of a PR announcement tied to that episode which was delayed. This forced us to delay the release of 164, so we hurried up and released 165 as soon as we could. This episode is our Show of Force covering the Grey Knights!

(I know. It's confusing.)

To help us through this episode, we have brought on two guys who are incredibly passionate about the Grey Knights. Aaron (also known as Magneto) and Adan. I want to thank them very much for joining us on short notice so we could get this episode out to you guys and not make you wait even longer for Episode 164.

Our Show of Force episodes are some of our most positively reviewed content - but just when you think it cannot get any better we top it by bringing on Aaron Dembski-Bowden and Geoff Hummel to complete our Forbidden Lore segment on Black Legion. Aarons follow up to Talon of Horus! It's an hour long interview full of spoilers and fanboy gushing, but we think you will enjoy that!

Thank you for your patience as we have dealt with this fumble of timing. We hope you enjoy the show.

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.
