Episode 191 of The Independent Characters has us doing a deep dive into the ideas, fiction, fact, and fantasy that spawned the lore of Warhammer 40,000. If you hate long episodes, this one might not be for you as it is over 4 hours of content. But that's what the timestamps below are for!

We include our usual Hobby Progress section and then we leap into an interview with none other than Miniwargaming Dave (or Chaos Dave as some call him!). We discuss some exciting things he has done lately and the new Mini Wargaming Bunker you can visit!

Then we leap into the main topic of the show for about an hour and a half of solid conversation.

This is followed up by an interview with Kat and Caleb from CK Studios where we discuss the entry for the NOVA Open Charity Foundation. An amazing Warlord Titan assembled and painted by some of the best in the industry. Find out how it can be yours!

You may also notice fewer advertisements this episode. Thanks to our Patreon we are dropping most advertisers with two exceptions as we move forward. Tablewar and soon, Miniwargaming. We hope you enjoy the show.

Episode 190 of The Independent Characters has a return to our Show of Force series - and this time it's all about The Insidious Curse... We take a deep dive into the horror that is The Genestealer Cults!

To help us out with this, we have brought in our resident Genestealer Cult player, new guest host, new member to our gaming group, AND new 40k Player (since January!), Matt Bruner! He is a long time friend of Jodys and we think you will love him as much as we do! We kick off the show getting to know Matt, then launch into a lengthy hobby progress and games played section with Jody talking a little bit about his experience at the Boise GT. You can hear even more about that on the Splintermind Podcast (link below).

Then it's time to launch into our coverage of The Genestealer Cults. What an amazing army this is! While the concept isn't new, the army IS, and you will hear all about it here.

Finally we have a short interview with Facebook Group fan-favorite Jeremy Wood. If you aren't a member of the group, you are really missing out on some incredibly work Jeremy does with his dioramas.

Then it's time to say goodbye as we close out another episode. We hope you enjoy it. We couldn't figure out why it was taking so long to record... until I put it together and it is nearly four hours of content!
