Real first name: Philip

Age and gender: 27, male

Location: Berlin, Germany

Occupation: Student (Psychology)

How did you get into wargaming?
The videogame "Dawn of War" and a close friend of mine played a role in it. But I was always interested in warhammer and the Tau in particular.

How did you get into Tau?
I'm a huge boardgame fan, and for a game (Mansion of Madness), I wanted to paint the boring grey figures. So I had some colors since then and thought: "Hm why not try painting a Tau Battelsuit?"

What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
Have fun with them! And think about playing Farsight-Enclave...they have the suits and are red!

What is your Tau colour scheme?
Well Farsight-Enclave. :smile:

How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
I jointed yesterday. I wanted to learn more about playing Tau, because until recently, I was just contend with painting them.

What are the origins of your ATT username?
Ehhh, so I am also a huge Batman fan and wanted to name myself "the Batman". But since so many peopel are doing that, I named myself after a prison in the Batman univers. I know it is strange too! :D

Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
Of course!

Where and how often do you usually play?
Until now just once against my friend who brought me into the hobby. And I lost against his Space Marines. :(

Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
Not yet. But I would like to play Black Templars or Dark Angels in the future!

What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
Orks and Orks.

What is your best and worst 40K moment?
Best: I killed 3 Terminators with a Riptide in a singel shot!
Worst: Commander Farsight got killed in that game by a single lucky shot of a Venerable Dreadnought. :fear:

What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
They like it.

What are some of you other interests?
Boardgames, Videogames, Tennis, inline skating, People, Netflix, Films, Books, Guitare

Do you have any pets?
No.

What is your favourite band?
Saltatio Mortis (a german medieval rock band!)

Indeed welcome to the forums, DoW was a fun game and I enjoyed modding in my Scythes of the Emperor space marines.

Never got a chance to play the newer tau friendly versions though.

Look forward to your input on the forums :D
