Episode 120 of The Independent Characters clocks in at almost three hours to make up for the last short episode.

Carl is joined by Jason Mullins of The Overlords Podcast as well as Michael Dunsmore from our local gaming group for a lengthy discussion about how to get involved with Horus Heresy Gaming (also known as 30k).

We take some time to talk about some of the fundamentals of 30k and what our approaches were to getting into it.

We have a pretty lengthy hobby progress and games played segment this episode - which as it so happens, coincides with the overall theme. We talk about some of our 30k games played in the last couple of weeks and some things we have learned. On top of that Aaron shows up to surprise Carl with a going away gift, the likes of which he could not believe. Thank you so very much for all those who contributed and who listen to the show.

As it turns out, we now have a copy of Imperial Armour: The Siege of Vraks in hand, and it is virtually impossible for us to end the show without covering that one... so we have extended the show another episode before we close the door. Our suspicion is that Horus Heresy Book 5 is going to release before the end as well... so we MAY end up extending it even another episode... we shall see!

Episode 119 of The Independent Characters is a short one (at 2 hours long!?).

Carl, Adan and Justin spend some time discussing their Hobby Progress and Games Played before we move into the main topic of the show.

We spend a good amount of time talking about Carls visit to the 2015 Las Vegas Open and everything it entailed. Additionally we spend a few minutes discussing the current state of competitive Warhammer 40k.

We also have a short discussion with James Hakola (aka: Mr Dandy) of none other than Wargamma.com. We find out what is going on with Wargamma as well as the answer to whether Mr. Dandy really does like chimichangas!

With only four remaining episodes of The Independent Characters, we plan to make the best of them! We hope you enjoy this one.

Episode 118 of The Independent Characters is our long awaited Show of Force: The Angels of Death!

Carl, Adan and Justin spend some time discussing their Hobby Progress and Games Played before we move into the meat of the show.

You may or may not realize it, but The Space Marines are a pretty large part of Warhammer 40k (who are we kidding? You know that!), and so this Show of Force takes quite a bit of time to go through. Even with the length of this episode, we are still only scratching the surface of the most popular army in Galaxy!

Additionally we get none other than Douglas Johnson of Tablewar fame to join us, and talk briefly about the Tablewar offerings.That's great and all, but you may not realize Doug is also an incredibly accomplished Warhammer 40k Tournament player, with multiple GT's under his belt and several appearances in the Top 16 at the Adepticon finals. Doug also happens to be a huge fan of Space Marines and spends some time with us talking about them in competition.

With only five remaining episodes of The Independet Characters, we plan to make the best of them! We hope you enjoy this one.

Episode 115 is finally here! Bryce and Adan join Carl to discuss the 2014 Warhammer 40k Year in Review. And what a year it was! We had heard late LAST year that Games Workshop was going to be moving even faster than 2013 and we don't see how anyone could have predicted the pace and sheer amount of releases that took place!

We cover every aspect of Warhammer 40k releases, from Games-Workshop, Forge World, Black Library, Fantasy Flight Games and others. So prepare yourself, because this is going to be a long ride.

And just when you think it couldn't get any more incredible, Loopy from Masters of The Forge, and the master of our hearts, joins Carl to announce the winners of the 2014 Hobby Progress challenge!

All of this and the usual Hobby Progress and Games Played segments make for an incredibly long episode. We hope you enjoy it!

Happy Holidays.

Episode 113 of The Independent Characters is full of Chaosy Goodness!

Once we get the hobby progress and games played out of the way we launch into a lengthy discussion and review about Imperial Armour 13: War Machines of The Lost and The Damned! With both Justin and Carl being very excited Chaos players, we take an in depth look at this book.

Then, when you think you cannot handle any more Chaos, we open fire with Forbidden Lore: The Talon of Horus! To join us for this coverage we bring in none other than Aaron Dembski-Bowden himself AND the return of Geoff! Warning: SPOILERS ABOUND in this coverage! So if you haven't read the book yet, you may want to skip this section until you DO read it!
