How did you get into wargaming?
Randomly stepping into a gw store an age ago... that was the beginning of the end
How did you get into Tau?
I've been playing some other 40k armies, been sitting on the fence for a while, but disliked 6th and 7th general rulebooks.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
"Thou shalt not whine", I guess.
What is your Tau colour scheme?
Plastic grey, typical of the I'ndecision sept.
How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
Last 30 minutes, seen it named on a facebook page.
What are the origins of your ATT username?
Roughly explained, Redshift is an astronomical phenomenon consisting in a shift in the light spectre of distant objects in space towards red due to expansion of the universe.
Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
Where and how often do you usually play?
Less than I would like, maybe 1 game every two months.
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
Imperial guard (never calling it astra militarum), space marines, grey knights, eldar, death guard. necron, adeptus mechanicus, imperial knights... both in 40k and battlefleet gothic.
What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
Still have to decide, never had a game with tau.
What is your best and worst 40K moment?
Best: Winning a 5th edition tournament thanks to an imperial guard sergeant killing in CC Kaldor Draigo. Glorious day.
Worst: Checking bank account after a 40k shopping day... ouch.
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
Mixed feelings, let's say.
What are some of you other interests?
Reading, travelling, swimming, gardening, preparing fossils...
Do you have any pets?
A cat, who loves attacking miniatures.
What is your favourite band?
Too many to pick one, arrrrgh! Possibly Iron maiden.
