Episode 159 of The Independent Characters revisits the question “What army should I play?”. Strap in because this is a long episode with some great pieces!

Back in Episodes 42 and 43 we ran two linked shows which explored each of the faction (on the surface) and sought to answer just that. At the time, the show notes were so long the hosts decided it would be better to break it up into two episodes. One which was an Imperial Edition, and the other which was a Xenos Edition.

Those are some great episodes, but that was all the way back in 5th edition and SO much has changed since then (and some things have stayed the same!) that we felt it was time to update this series.

We aim to provide you the definitive guide for looking at all your choices for Warhammer 40,000 armies and making the right one for you.

The first of these episodes, the Imperial Edition, is this one. But don't worry, we are going to follow up episode 159 with an updated version of the Xenos Edition in episode 160, by the end of the month.

Additionally, we have a couple of AMAZING interviews. The first is with Jes Bickham of the Warhammer 40k Design Studio! We ask him a bunch of questions around the development of the game and gain some insights into what the thinking was on many of the questions that have arisen since it’s release. THEN we talk to Dave Taylor, who tells us all about the NOVA Open Charitable Foundations efforts to raise money for those in need, and how you can get a chance to win some amazing prizes by helping out.

We hope you enjoy the show!
