Hey everyone, Im just writing a new post here because I forgot to fill out the new member sheet when i first posted and I kinda just presented my army list instead. Something I was informed is frowned upon but as that thread is now locked for some reason I thought I should post my profile here.
Real First Name= Christian
Age and Gender= Male 19
Occupation= student, with all the part time jobs that includes
How did you get into wargaming?= I actualy started with the starcraft video games, when I found out they were based on a tabletop game I had to check it out. It helped that two of my friends were already into it.
How did you get into Tau?= Two reasons. First I thought they looked awsome, Im really into mecha anime and the battlesuits called out to me
Second, their unbalanced army seemed interesting. By unbalanced I mean their complete dedication to ranged combat at the total expense of melee abilities, I thought it would be a nice contrast to my friend's melee lovin ork army.
What would be your second piece of advice (after "read the freakin' rules") to a new Tau player?= Well other than reading these forums a lot I would say just start playing games to find out what works and what dosn't. For example I use a full team of gun drones as a fast attack slot, some people here have said it's a bad idea but not only are they a great harassment unit but they constantly supprise me by taking out things I only expected them to dent.
They have been working for me and thats all the reason I need to use them.
What is your Tau colour scheme?= Im going for an urban camo scheme with grey as the main armor color highlighted with occasional pannels of space wolves grey. The sept color is blue, my favorite color.
How did you find this site/the old site, and how long have you been a member?= I was just looking for a good Tau forum, since every race in 40k seems to have one, and I stumbled accross this site. I havn't been a member more than a few days.
What are the origins of your ATT username?= It's actualy the real name of captain Char Aznable of the original gundam anime, Casval Rem Deikum, I just threw some Tau style anunciation into it.
Have you reviewed the ATT Member Primers?= Yes
Where and how often do you usually play?= At my local Chimera Hobby shop and every two weeks or so.
Do you have any other armies, for 40K or another system?= I have a vanilla-marines codex for my personal marines the Star Dragons. They're descendents of the Salamander chapter and realy like using Dreads.
What is your favourite and least favourite army to play against? Well i only regularly play against necrons and orks, the necron player has never beat me, I give him credit for being a good sport though. The ork player I have trouble with since the only thing I have that can handle his E'avy armor, FNP, Cybork Warboss and Nobz is my Shas'O and his fireknife team. Hes also realy cocky about his win streak so I'm looking forwrd to beating him someday soon.
What is your best and worst 40K moment?= The Best was definatly my shield drone team killing the Warboss in melee without loosing a drone
he still wants me to add some spikes to the drones so he can figure out how they killed something in melee. The worst moment was a 2v2 game where my pratner completly fell apart and I had to fight of the orks and necrons by myself. Needless to say it didn't go well.
What does/do your family/significant other/friends think about your 'funny toys'?= Family dosn't pay them much attention, no G at the moment, and my friends like them.
What are some of you other interests?= Im a huge DnD player and am into Star Wars The Old Republic.
Do you have any pets?= No
What is your favourite band?= Don't realy have a favorite, not much of a music guy.
So there you have it, hopefuly this was a better introduction than my first post and things will be smooth sailing from now on.
