Episode 154 of the Independent Characters is all about Shadow Wars: Armageddon! Ok well maybe not ENTIRELY about SW:A, we have a bunch of 8th edition discussion in here as well as a couple of great interviews!

Our first interview, is with the Terrafirmer! They have a brilliant gaming table product that you are going to want to hear about and see (See show notes links below!)

We then launch into a discussion about Shadow Wars: Armageddon. A tremendous offering from Games Workshop, where the initial run of boxes and rule books sold out too fast! We go into the background the game is based on, some of its historical relation to Necromunda, and then talk about the rules and campaign system a bit.

We then launch into an interview with Matei Lungu (Or Matt as he is known!) about the Warhammer 40k scene in Bucharest, Romania. This is hopefully the first in an ongoing segment titled Warhammer 40k: Around the World, in which we talk to different people from around the world and compare similarities and differences to their gaming scene.

As a side note, Carl has been sidelined with some family issues and so we recognize some of the links didn’t make it into the show notes that should be there. We will add those in the next day or so on the Facebook page. We hope you enjoy!

Episode 153 of The Independent Characters brings you the conclusion of our coverage of Horus Heresy Book 7 - Inferno!

To help us out with this coverage we have once again enlisted Josh Sawyer on this episode. Josh is a member of our local gaming group and a huge fan of The Thousand Sons, and has helped us pour over this massive tome and has prepared extensively for this episode!

This episode we close out our coverage talking about the forces of the Imperium. Meaning the Space Wolves, Custodes, and Sisters of Silence.

Last episode saw us cross our 3 MILLION total download mark and we just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone who listens to the show. It has succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.

We hope you enjoy the show!
