Real first name:
Age and gender:
-Redwood Valley, Ca
-Utility Custodian for the school district
How did you get into wargaming?
-I was interested in the hobby for years but the initial investment was a bit steep for me. Luckily I had a surprise influx of expendable cash so I decided to take the plunge.
How did you get into Tau?
-The aesthetics of the troops drew my initial interest when I was picking an army. The thing that won me over though was the fluff. I like the idea of having a variety of aliens in the same army and the T’au support that vision.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
-Be an enjoyable opponent, don’t let your mood sour someone else’s enjoyment of the game.
What is your Tau colour scheme?
-Black cloth, dark blue armor with silver accents, light blue lights/lenses and orange markings
How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
-While I was researching interesting projects my Google searching often lead me back to this site. I started lurking during 6th edition when I made my initial investment. After a long hiatus from the hobby I finally joined on November 8th 2017.
What are the origins of your ATT username?
-It is the name I use for characters that I pour myself into to feel more immersed in a game. The first notable Talo was a DnD character that I made a few years back. I already have a model lined up for the Warhammer version and he will likely be a proxy for Darkstrider.
Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules?
Where and how often do you usually play?
- Despite having the supplies for years I have yet to finish my army and play. I often seem to get stuck in the planning phase. I will likely play at my house or a friend’s until I have a good grasp of the rules then I may venture into our local comic shop.
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
-Once the T’au models I have are finished I intend to make a small fighing force of Tzeentch daemons and Death Guard.
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
-They think they are great. Though I think they get tired of hearing me gush over the fluff.
What are some of you other interests?
-Video games are the biggest draw for me and often occupy my free time. I’ve played casual Magic off and on for about 15 years now; nowadays it is almost exclusively EDH. I have a fair number of heroclix but only play on rare occasions. I love to craft stories but I rarely am motivated to write them down. It will likely be years before I ever finish my DnD campaign.
Do you have any pets?
-Yes I have an Orange Baboon Tarantula, a couple cockroaches, a few stickbugs and a playful cat named Mufasa
What is your favorite band?
-If I had to pick one it would be The Presidents of the United States of America, I always smile when one of their songs starts playing.
