Default September 2013 Member of the Month


It's time to announce Member of the Month for the month that was September 2013.

Stella Cadente

Stella Cadente joined Heresy Online way back in December of 2006 and is often considered one of the forums most blunt and negative members. However far to few also realize that he is a superb painter, with a number of his works available to be viewed in Modeling and Painting.

So if you don't normally frequent Modeling and Painting we urge you to do so and see for yourself the quality of Stella's work.

And on that note, congratulations Stella Cadente for being selected as the September 2013 Member of the Month.

Real name:

Heresy Online user name:
Stella cadente

Main Army:
Mishima corporation

Midlands, shrooshire

Personal Website:

What motivates you when choosing to buy or build an army?
The physical appearance of the models, the background of the army and who plays which forces in the local area

What motivates you to keep playing or participating in the hobby?
Release of new products and systems, local gaming group and the background of both sci-fi/fantasy systems and historical systems

Do you play for fun or victory?
Fun and fun alone, if the end result is also a victory, then great, but I have no interest in sacrificing my opponents fun for the sake of victory, I consider it childish.

What is your all time favourite Game System?
Currently warzone resurrection, I enjoy many systems, but don't have a singular one that I rank above all

What are your thoughts on the Grand Tournament scene? IS it good for the hobby?
Depends on the system, if we refer solely to 40k then my answer is NO, certainly not, GW admits their system is not a competitive system, so it alone does not work, I also feel the tournament scene damages the hobby because players fix themselves on competitive play, reducing the use for imagination, experimentation and good sportsmanship.

What are your plans for the future?
In terms of gaming, I want to collect 1000pts of mishima, capital, Bauhaus and brotherhood for warzone, I also want to increase my fleet for Starfleet battles and am now starting to slowly get into star trek attack win, but its going to be difficult.

In life itself, to simply find a job, earn .600 a month, and just finally feel secure.

What gaming clubs do you belong to or have you been a member of?

Which Race is your toughest opponent to face on the game table?
Starfleet battles: Orion pirates

What do you do when you're not online?
Read, walk, watch DVD's, sometimes (but rarely) play on Xbox, paint, wargame and search for work and apply for work

Favourite sports team?

What armies do you play?
Mishima, Federation, Klingons, Napoleonic Netherlands, Japanese navy

Which system do you prefer and why?
Warzone: the freedom and cinematic experience is far more rewarding to my "beer and pretzels" type of gaming, the rules are also allot better than any alternatives available

How long have you been playing GW games?
I played 40k up until end of 4th, I quit at 5th due to expense, the attitude of GW towards customers (especially veterans) and the attitude of the players, who have become more childish, argumentative, unimaginative and care only for victory at all costs.

What's your favourite movie, book and song?
Red Cliff
The art of war
Gunslinger girl Il teatrino soundtrack


Any pictures you'd like to share? (40k, family, work etc)
None currently, anything New I add to the painting section

What is your greatest achievement that you're proud of?
I have no achievements in life that I am proud of

How did you come up with your username?
It's the title of an episode from gunslinger girl, Italian for Falling Star, I just liked it.

How did you find out about Heresy? What made you stay?
Google, and the freedom to be rather more blunt and honest compared to shitholes to B&C and wankseer

You can take three things with you to a deserted island, name them?
Fully charged satellite phone
High quality utility knife
High strength tent

Other Usernames we may know you by?
King tiger

If you could change something about heresy what would it be?
The amount of competitive discussion and the attitudes towards more casual gamers, who's opinions never seem to count for shit

Favourite mini of any range ever?(pic if possible.)
Any Napoleonic officer from Perry miniatures, due to the freedom you have painting an officer and the attention to detail

What was the first ever model you bought or were given?
Space marine biker at the age of 6

Nonsense is our Salvation

Holy crap! A Warzone player?!

I mean, congratulations!

I may pick your brain at some point about the merits of Warzone resurrection. I played the first 2 editions and still have a sizable Dark Legion army (and a few bits and bobs from other megacorps, mostly Capitol I think.)

The biggest merit is that the models are sexier than kiera knightly and liv tyler wrestling naked in a pool full of chocolate while while two seperate teams of cheerleaders cheer them on before breaking out into an intense tongue wrestling session.

Congrats Stella, your work is definitely worth recognizing.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
