Heresy Online user name:
None, thus far there has been no need. Heresy is probably the closest I`d call to home.
What motivates you when choosing to buy or build an army?
I`ve been called the xeno guy before, and that suits me just fine. I love playing xenos armies, simply for the fact that they`re not boring humans or whatever. I`ve tried building marine and guard armies in the past, but it just doesn`t hold the same appeal for me.
What motivates you to keep playing or participating in the hobby?
The art and creative side of it. I enjoy writing fiction, and 40k has a fantastic well of lore to draw upon and refine my technique. Also, the models these days are simply fantastic.
Do you play for fun or victory?
Fun. I have deliberately lost friendly games before simply for the sake of a cool visual or amusing ending.
What is your all time favourite Game System?
40k. I admit that WotR has a better mechanic and Fantasy is a more refined system, but it all keeps coming back to the awesome background for me. Sci Fi Grimdark does it for me every time.
What are your thoughts on the Grand Tournament scene? IS it good for the hobby?
Cannot really comment, never been interested and never attended.
What are your plans for the future?
Currently I work as a benchtop fabricator. In my free time I write and hobby. One day I hope to have my own work of fiction published and maybe be working as a designer.
What gaming clubs do you belong to or have you been a member of?
The Battle Pilgrims.
Which Race is your toughest opponent to face on the game table?
I have a pretty good success rate against most of my opponents. Probably Imperial Guard, though Eldar get an honourable mention.
What do you do when you're not online?
Either work or hobby. Or sleep.
Favourite sports team?
I still have hope that one day the Cronulla Sharks may win a premiereship in the Rugby League...
What armies do you play?
Xenos, one and all. Tyranid, Necron, Eldar and Dark Eldar, Tau, Orks and Daemons of Tzeentch.
Which system do you prefer and why?
40k, though I have played WHF in the past and have recently been dabbling in more specialist games such as Mordheim and D&D.
How long have you been playing GW games?
Eight or nine years? Maybe? I`m honestly not sure.
What's your favourite movie, book and song?
Eragon, Brsingir, and Numb.
Any pictures you'd like to share? (40k, family, work etc)
What is your greatest achievement that you're proud of?
I`m literate and can feed and burp myself. Oh, and I`m also qualified to operate a toilet. (Sadly I have little to really be proud of. Unless you want to count all I`ve accomplished on Heresy?)
How did you come up with your username?
Serpions are actually a type of enemy in the Final Fantasy video games. I later adopted the name as a working title for one of my writing works due mainly to the fact that it sounded like an amalgamation of serpent and scorpion. I based the alien antagonists in my story off this principle and have been using the name ever since. 5 is my birthday.
How did you find out about Heresy? What made you stay?
I googled 40k forums. Of all the ones on the first page, Heresy left the best impression, so I joined straight away.
You can take three things with you to a deserted island, name them?
A boat, an oar and a harpoon.
Other Usernames we may know you by?
I am Serpion5 here and on deviantArt. You may see me elsewhere as Ishtar5.
If you could change something about heresy what would it be?
What needs to change?
Favourite mini of any range ever?(pic if possible.)
The humble Tyranid Warrior.
What was the first ever model you bought or were given?
The humble Tyranid Warrior. Ah, nostalgia.
