Real first name:

Age and gender:
31M

Location:

Occupation:
IT Engineer

How did you get into wargaming?
Through seeing weird looking models lying around at a friends house at a tender and impressionable age

How did you get into Tau?
Fell in love with them when the very first teaser was revealed in White Dwarf.
A new 40k race was intriguing, and I absolutely fell for the aesthetic

What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
Don't look at other people's lists first, find the models you love and try to work them into a list of your own.

What is your Tau colour scheme?
Turquoise, with orangered and white detailing.

How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
Long time lurker, so long that I dan't remember how I first found the old site.
With a new edition of 40k, it's time to break a long hiatus (since 4th edition!) and get back to rolling dice and taking names.

What are the origins of your ATT username?
A name I've used online for a number of years in different games, starting with WoW.
It's a nicely fitting Tau name too!

Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
Yes!

Where and how often do you usually play?
Local gaming club and FLGS mostly, I love my local GW too but I don't get to play there much.

Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
A couple of AoS armies, but Tau have been my only focus in 40k for many years.

What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
I love playing against anything! My favourite opponents though are those who put the time and effort into painting and designing thematically though.

What is your best and worst 40K moment?
My best: Rolling those dice for the first time.
My worst: Probably failing those rolls.

What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
My SO has been instrumental in getting me back into the hobby, my friends are mostly nerds too and my family has always been supportive of my passions.

What are some of you other interests?
There are ..other things?
Seriously though, I love my job. I work with IT infrastructure management at a University, the people I meet and the whole working environment is a dream.

Do you have any pets?
Not right now!

What is your favourite band?
Hard to say, probably Daft Punk.

Great to have a veteran Tau player join up on the "Orbital" - used to play WoW myself on Nagrand server, great fun with a like minded guild. Great to hear you have that in your direct next of friends and SO :)

Look forward to your thoughts and modelling on the forum!

Also, Daft Punk! Nice! :D
