It's time to announce Member of the Month for the month that was September 2013.
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.
Heresy Online user name:
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?
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

High quality utility knife

Other Usernames we may know you by?
If you could change something about heresy what would it be?
