How did you get into wargaming?
next step in my table rpg learning curve (previous step was D&D 3.5ed and 4ed)
How did you get into Tau?
I ran torough researches of statistics, lore, to-win ratios and choosed the one who visually appealed me the most
Seen that we will be the last getting a new codex, this means a harder challenge to new Tau players. Easiest way of winning doesn't fulfill my accomplishment-sense.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?
Dare new ideas/tactics!
What is your Tau colour scheme?
mostly vomit brown as shown.
How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?
After developing my own ideas/tactics I searched the web for a serious forum where to cross-check what I thought with what has been done over the previous years.
What are the origins of your ATT username?
THT is the abbreviation of our "allround clan". 5 people with same hobbies and interests, spacing from motorcycle riding, videogaming, softair, and now warhammer 40k!
Shadow is my 10years long online nickname.
Have you reviewed the ATT Member Primers?
Where and how often do you usually play?
Up to now my home and 2-4 times per month.
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?
What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against?
I only managed to play against Necron and Tyranids. I developed survivable tactics against 'nids, but I am still struggling against Necrons. My experience so far is mostly theoretical.
What is your best and worst 40K moment?
Best: teaching a good Mont'ka lesson to those Necrons
Worst: they weren't listening...
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?
My girlfriend understood the mechanics behind such games and that my "funny toys" aren't for children. Her 7yo daughter will paint some kroot for me. I just hope they don't end up being an "hello kitty carnivore armada" of some sort!
What are some of you other interests?
sci-fi in all it's forms (I am a proud member of the 501st Vader Fist), gaming in general.
Do you have any pets?
What is your favourite band?
Classical music in my opinion fits best, along heavy metal, while imagining our railguns shoot.
