Episode 66 focuses on how to develop your own background and history for your Warhammer 40k Army. We throw out some ideas for character development and give you our thoughts on the "Do's and Dont's" of fluff creation in the Warhammer 40k Universe.
The topic of this episode, which is very subjective at best, will surely evoke some strong reactions as to what people think is and is not "cool" for background material. We certainly don't think everyone will agree with us. One of the great things about the Warhammer 40k Universe however, is that it is so large that really anything can fit in it!
Additionally, we announce the winner (and runner-up) of the Custom Army Background Contest, and discuss theirs, and other entries!
A longer than usual hobby progress and games played segment is included at the start of the show.
We hope you enjoy!

We recommend downloading the episode as opposed to listening through the site. We seem to hit some type of process limit on days we release the episode, but it only affects people listening from the site directly.[podcast]http://www.theindependentcharacters.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/The_ICs_Episode_66.mp3[/podcast]
