How did you get into wargaming?
Friend of mine dragged me into the local gameshop and said, "You're playing." I said, "Okay."
How did you get into Tau?
Started out with Space Puppies, decided I didn't do well with the C/C type, and then the Tau came out, the exact opposite of what I used. Fell in love with the everything for the Greater Good, as well as the general feel of the army in general.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
Never be afraid to ask questions on something, just do it respectfully.
What is your Tau colour scheme?
It used to be a fairly decent camoflauge scheme, then I got drawn in to do cityfight colors. But now that everyone is doing the Shadow Grey cityfight scheme in one form or another, I'm trying to decide on a better scheme. Currently I'm looking at doing a black-lined Codex Grey.
How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
Found a link to it on 40K Fight Club by TOnka's name.
What are the origins of your ATT username?
It's the name of my Shas'o, along with one of the main character's in my 40K fan fiction.
Where and how often to you usually play?
Depends on whether or not I'm on base. In England, I played at least once every other week, even managed to get to Warhammer World (GW world headquarters) in Nottingham a couple of times. Here in the states, I've played a lot less than I would have liked, but I should be getting in a lot of time while I'm home on leave.
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
Nope, used to have Space Wolves, but donated the models to be stripped and repainted as Black Templar for a friend's new army.
What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
Least Favorite: Ulthwe Strike Force
What is your best and worst 40K moment?
Best: In one game, three broadsides took down 12 tanks in four turns (playing IG Armored Company)
Worst: Deepstriking 12 Crisis suits, only 2 without plasma or fusion less than 6 inches from five Chimeras, and hitting with everything, and never blew up a single Chimera
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
They tolerate, but can't understand why I'm so addicted. My Grandparents think it's a little kids game. I've given up trying to explain. My wife just takes it in stride, and wants to paint one green. It's how I'm going to get her hooked
What are some of you other interests?
Paintball, Airsoft (when I get a chance), reading all sorts of sci-fi, driving fast, Dawn of War, and the occasional d20 Star Wars RPG. I'm also a big fan of the Society for Creative Anachronisms (recreating the past) and Amtgard (lighter version of the SCA with more fantasy, ie. magic involved).
Do you have any pets?
Bird and dog....both died while I was in England, so no.
What is your favourite band?
Linkin Park, Big & Rich, Montgomery Gentry, Limp Bizkit, Godsmack, Nickleback, 3 Doors Down
