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.
