Episode 137 of The Independent Characters takes us back to some basics. And by that we mean basic tactics.

After a lengthy Workbench and Games Played discussion, we get into a two part segment on Basic Tactics with Jody and Jason. This covers each phase of the Warhammer 40k game as it is played on the tabletop.

After that, we figured we would kick off an ongoing segment on Basic Tactics about each army. We of course, start with the Space Marines.

For more advanced players of Warhammer 40k, some of this information may be redundant. But we have found that going back to the beginning, sometimes reminds you of insights you may have overlooked. Either way, we hope you enjoy the show!

Don't forget to listen to the end after the credits to learn about our new contest!

Many gamers feel like they have always had that novel inside of them, if they could just get the time to write it all down...

Episode 136 focuses on what it takes for your submissions to Black Library to get noticed. Who knows, maybe you could be the next great Black Library author! To help us out with this we have brought in three experts:

Guy Haley is probably one of the most prolific authors in Black Library to date. He writes more short stories and novels than just about any other author today. He also provides us a wealth of information on what the "Do's and Dont's" are when submitting material or pitching ideas, from an experienced writers perspective.

We also speak with Justin Hill, one of the newer authors for Black Library (but by no means a new author!) about his experience in getting his foot in the door to write Warhammer 40k fiction.

And finally we speak to the legend himself, Nick Kyme. Not only an author for Black Library, but first and foremost, one of the editors behind the portal that Ahriman himself searches for! As an editor, he and his peers are the literal gatekeepers to what does and does not get published by Black Library. He provides a wealth of information about what should go into your pitch for a story, and more importantly what should NOT go into it!
