1: How long have you been in the hobby?
Well, I wanted to start in 2004, but I did not buy my first models until maybe... 2007? It was a SM Tactical Squad.. Aah... Good old memories...
2: How important is Fluff to you, relative to other aspects of the hobby?
On a scale of 1-10, I would say that it is 9, maybe 9,5, dunno, but I also enjoy just using money on a hell of models, of which only 40% get painted as I turn my eyes on a new army or chapter...
3: How devoted are you to the works of the Black Library? By this I basically mean what compels you to buy/read one of their novels, do you pick them because of the races involved, follow certain serials, on a whim, etc...
Totally random purchases... I have bought two novels; Assault on Black Reach and Dark Adeptus, and gotten two others together with the White Dwarf value packs; Caves of Ice and Faith and Fire... And then I have also bought two amazing background books; The Liber Chaotica and the Sabbat Worlds Crusade... But I am planing to buy more, as I am getting even more into the fluff for every passing day...
4: How many codexes have you taken the time to read thoroughly, including older editions?
I will give you a short list:
5th: Codex: Space Marines
4th: Codex: Dark Angels
3rd: Codex: Daemon Hunters
3rd: Codex: Tau
3rd: Codex: Blood Angels
3rd: Codex: Dark Angels
My favorites of them are the last of them, cause I was really surprised to find them in the shelves of a local book store for a darn cheap price and in damn good shape, and the fact that they were probably the best read of them all!
5: Do you enjoy postiulating theories, pondering mysteries, and writing your own works to expand your enjoyment of the hobby?
Yes, I do, it is one of the most enjoyable things in the hobby!
6: If youa have anything further to add, feel free.
I am the Emperors most holy servant, so screw you, you chaos work shipping bastards!
