Episode 140 - Show of Force: Disciples of The Machine God

Post by cvtuttle » Mon Sep 12, 2016 9:50 am

Episode 140 of The Independent Characters continues our Show of Force series. This time it is the Adeptus Mechanicus and Skitarii forces that we cover in depth!

To assist Carl, we have brought on two members of our gaming group that play the AdMech and Skitarii forces. Michael and Colin are both very strong painters and players. The wealth of knowledge between the two of them will providde insights that we are certain you will find entertaining.

Because we have a new guest on the show, he lets slip with some language you wouldn’t normally hear on our program. It’s nothing too terrible, but I felt we should warn you up front. It’s for this exact reason we carry the explicit tags on all of our episodes.

We hope you enjoy the show!

Does the story of the Mechanicum mention them fighting xeno's? Seems I only hear of them fighting human armies only.

There are plenty of encounters between Mechanicus forces and xenos. In particular check out this series by Graham McNeil:

Not many comments on this episode, but I *really* enjoyed it.

Like, glad I just gave away a Dune Crawler I won at a tournament because I don't need *another* army enjoyed it.

And I've gotta agree with the rant on weathering. I'm all for weathered figures, but there should be a reason for the weathering. Slathering rust and oil stains on everything isn't necessarily any more "realistic" than not, especially for revered and carefully maintained relics. My personal pet-hatred is rust effects on Drop Pods.

Chipping? Sure. Scorch marks from re-entry? Got it. But rust?. What the hell are your Tech Marines doing that your high-speed orbital insertion missiles are rusting.

Excellent show. Made me want to bear down and finish my army (right not I only have an allied force completed). I must say that the Independent Characters Podcast keeps me going in the hobby. Keep up the stellar work.
