Episode 182 of The Independent Characters brings you a new series we are launching…

In the 41st Millennium there are those who stand out among all others. Shining beacons of light or blackened embers of darkness. In this new series entitled ‘Champions of 40k’, The Independent Characters take an in depth view of several of their favorite heroes in the game.

In this episode we explore the lore around each of them and what makes them qualified to be counted among the greatest of their kind. And in true ICs fashion, we go deeper. We look at how their model represents them, how they function on the table as well as how they compare to their fiction!

This first episode will explore several ‘Heroes of The Imperium’. We will pick our favorites and dive into how they have helped to turn back the tide of Chaos and Xenos alike.

After all of that, we have an interview with Teras of Geek Nation Tours, who describes some amazing new tours they have set up for the miniature gamer, role-playing gamer, and general geek enthusiast!

Stick with us as it’s a great episode. We hope you enjoy this new series as much as we are excited to bring it to you!

Episode 181 of The Independent Characters brings you our 2018 wrap-up episode.

Let me just first say that if you do not like our Hobby Progress segments, we apologize, because this one is extra long, coming in at nearly an hour and a half as we talk about our 2018 commitments, where we succeeded or failed, and then make new ones for 2019. There is also quite a bit that was accomplished over the holiday break by everyone and we go into detail about all those... including a few tangents here and there.

Then we launch into the 2018 Warhammer 40k review! We go over every release from Games Workshop, Black Library, and Forge World, with a sprinkling of 3rd party releases thrown in here and there. We love these episodes because it really boils down to our opinions on a lot of things here.

We hope you enjoy the episode as well!

PS - Yes we also realize that at the very end we forgot to mention the Primaris version of Marneus, his guards and the new Black Legion Commander...
