I'm robbobobo, long time lurker but I decided with 8th Edition just around the corner and all the buzz it's created here that I'd finally sign up and join the Cadre.
Real first name:
How did you get into wargaming/Tau?
When I was 15 I bought two games on special: Killzone and Fire Warrior on PS2. I played Fire Warrior to death (almost 100%, just two more 'A' ratings. Never touched Killzone) and enjoyed the setting and the race so much that I dived into the tabletop game.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
Fluff it out before you crunch it out.
What is your Tau colour scheme?
I have a T'au force based on Dawn of War: Dark Crusade and I'm currently working on this scheme as the T'olku sept. http://www.40kforums.com/vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=20191&d=1394767801&thumb=1
What are the origins of your ATT username?
I practially use it everywhere. It was a random thing and is often misattributed to the anime Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.
Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
Yes, I have.
Where and how often do you usually play?
Usually at GW stores or at a monthly meet up at a mate's house.
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
I own Tyranids from Hive Fleet Kraken, a Colette du Bois crew from Malifaux and a vanilla Aleph force from Infinity. Does Kingdom Death: Monster count?
What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
Favourite - Necrons. Sibiling rivalry has a large part to play here. Least favourite - Blood Angels. Blergh.
What is your best and worst 40K moment?
Best - A Fire Warrior Shas'Ui hits and wounds a Greater Deamon of Slaanesh in combat after his squad gets wiped. The wound triggered Daemonic Instability and caused it to explode. This was back in 4th edition.
Worst - A unit of Lychguard with Warscythes managed to walk from table edge to table edge, surviving the trip with 8 models left, then proceeded to wipe the floor with Tau blood. My brother was truly favoured by the dice gods. This was back during 5th edition.
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
"At least he isn't spending his money on drugs." My dad, 2011.
What is your favourite band?
