How did you get into wargaming?
When I was younger I found white dwarf magazines in the library.
When I was in my first year of high school I was friends with a guy who had codex's
How did you get into Tau?
he had the tau codex and they seemed nicer and I do like technology. Also a story in the codex about what a railgun did to the occupants of a tank.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
Don't forget to prepare for any possibility. Not having anti-air can be painful, lacking enough anti-vehicle can be devastating.
What is your Tau colour scheme?
Gold armour with blue fabric/joints for the main tau and elite Add to dictionary
Black armour with grey fabric for gue'vesa
Some units have different colour schemes. Shadowsun is purple and I have one completely pink set of breachers.
How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
Another blog linked to the article on positional play and after reading it I decided to stick around. I've been around for a few months but finally decided to join with 8th edition approaching.
What are the origins of your ATT username?
A book on marine biology and needing a username for a game that no one else had previously chosen
Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
Where and how often do you usually play?
I play at a store every now and then. Going to university has slowed me down from the previous once a week
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
I have a few elder and am slowly building a gue'vesa force
What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
I like going up against any army. Even the broken ones, in which case I craft a list to take it down. With the players permission of course.
What is your best and worst 40K moment?
Worst would be the few times I had no chance in a game
Best... nothing really sticks out. I suppose one early game had a single marker drone wipe out a unit of cultists was pretty good.
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
My littlest sister likes tyranids. The rest of the family don't really care beyond if I won the last game.
What are some of you other interests?
Do you have any pets?
What is your favourite band?
My favourite singer is Kate Miller-Heidke
