I'd also say Andy Chambers for this one.
But also I'd give a little credit to Jake Thornton who always played with decent armies in White Dwarf and at least threw in alot of interesting rules and product plays during his editing period. By the Mid-1990's "Before the Interwebs" White Dwarf was THE source of information about the game, I remember seeing a Dwarf on the front which caught my eye and made me open it. Inside I see these amazing models and battle reports and loads of information about what things did: Thats what got me into the game: though seen through nostalgia goggles I always remember them (the WD's) from that period covering all kinds of stuff and being "great" and really helping the hobby achieve it's success.
I'd also say Paul "Fatbloke" Sawyer who despite being largely scorned, was the familiar face of the White Dwarfs I used to buy as a kid. I won't ever forget the issue with his White Scars army and thinking "OMG White is so cool!".
