Farewell to The Independent Characters: Warhammer 40K Podcast

ticThe End Times have arrived, the final episode has dropped, so we bid farewell to The Independent Characters. I’ve found most 40K podcasts to be annoying, full of stupid jingles, songs, skits and shoddy quality, so it’s a real shame that these guys are throwing the towel in. It’s understandable though, most of us are adults and are fully aware how real life takes over, and scheduling becomes impossible. This wasn’t a news, tournament and tactics podcast, these guys really got into the hobby aspect, fluff and background, so try and check out the Show Of Force episodes about your favourite faction.

So, a massive thank you to Carl and the gang for all their hard work over the years, and making my commute more enjoyable. Check out the last episode here, their Facebook page, and also their forum with its ongoing Hobby Progress Challenge

Choosing A Legion: Ultramarines, with Cpt America


Ever tried blowing your nose whilst wearing the fists of Ultramar? Neither has Roboute.

Following on from Greg’s Q&A on the Rout, we have our first reader submission here, with Zachary’s Ultramarines with a twist, so, without further ado;

First up, can you let us know who you are?

 I’m Zac, Cpt America on most 40k and 30k forums, and I live in Detroit, Michigan.  I’ve been playing Warhammer since 1995.
Would you consider yourself a gamer, painter or more geared toward the book aspect of the heresy? 
I like to think of myself as a bit of all of those, but not particularly the best at any.  I do well enough at gaming to put up a good fight and get a win here and there and enjoy tournament settings to a point.  I’m a decent painter, but I’m still learning new techniques all the time.  I also greatly enjoy the background and stories set during the Heresy.

The Spartan, bane of hobbyists the world over.
