Started playing when I was little. My brother initially had orks so I had the Space Marines. Some reason I opted for Imperial Fists. My now beloved Orks initially didn't appeal to me as the orks looked cartoonish. I actually went into WHFB after uni. A gaming group I was playing with at the time gifted me some 40k orks when they became badass. I played a demo game and as soon as I was explained mob rule and had 50+ dice to assault I had a new favourite game! Then I had to collect a Space Marine force since that is the law of 40K – I went for Salamanders (cos green is good!)
What is the biggest highlight in your time doing the hobby?
The narrative I have forged for my Warboss. ‘Doktor’ Ferotous Bluddietoof. His lore is taken from his feats within the game - such as his brilliant feats of combat such single handedly killing Bloodthirsters, or Wraithknights.
What do you enjoy most about the hobby?
Looking at the battlefield with two fully painted armies (ideally not Tau) as it brings the lore of 40K to life for me.
If you could date one of the Chaos gods, which one would you choose?
Nurgle. He is the only non-evil chaos gods!
What do you enjoy most about the club?
The campaign as it helps add more epic lore for my characters. Also you get a lot of flexibility – such as betraying my allies!
If you had a club nickname, what would you like it to be?
Not really, but Austin calls me the ‘Troll King’
Who is top of your grudge list?
Gary Walker. I have a lot of grudges, but Gary is the only bastard who I have a horrific record against!
If you had any psychic power from the rule book and codexs, which one would you choose and why?
I would want any power, but to roll a double 6 and then fail Perils of the Warp. Wizards suck. I would want to do a public service and kill myself.
How do you feel about Tau?
Tau are an faction who need to be fucked on a tridaily basis.
What is your favourite game mechanic and why?
Assault. Many, MANY dice grin emoticon
If you were God-Emperor of Mankind for the day, what would you do?
Allow myself to be converted into some ork tech.
What is it like to be an All Scar?
Good! I still try and attend events, even though I have moved away from Leicester. There is nothing like the group where I live.
