- How did you find us.

I was surfing around online, looking through various 40k websites.

- Your location.

Newport News, Virginia, USA

- High School memories.

I was the band president :victory:

- Why did you choose that handle (name).

There's a Jeff Loeb/Tim Sale Batman comic trilogy - Haunted Knight, Long Halloween, Dark Victory - and one of the main characters is Gotham's DA (district attourney, not Dark Angel!), Harvey Dent. He's attacked in the middle of the mob trial for Roman Falconi, and half his face is burned off by acid. This makes for a character with a really interesting dichotomy in psychologies and, subsequently, motivations. Great character with a great background story...and if he has an astrological sign, I'm sure it's Pisces (which is mine as well).

- How long have you been playing Games Workshop Systems and Wargames in general

I began playing Necromunda in late '96 and moved on to 40k during 2nd edition in early '97. Way back at the start of high school I was an avid Battletech player, but I moved away from that when I started playing CCGs. Nowadays I just play 40k and Fantasy.

- Best memory during a battle.

Once during a game in 2nd edition, a 12" cyclone missle blast killed one of my own marine bikers, who collided with two other bikers in his squad, who in turn went out of control, barrelling into a giant mob of ork boyz; by the time the bikes had finished bouncing from ork to ork and finally exploded, they had killed 95% of the mob.

And another time, Mephiston got Quikening to go off with Combat Drugs, and he was able to charge all the way across the board, assault an ork battlewagon with his S10 force weapon, vaporizing it and killing 12 passengers.

- Favourite army.

Currently it's my Chaos army that has a heavy slant towards Slaanesh. But I have so many armies sometimes it's hard to pick a favorite. I just finished making an entirely Deathwatch-themed Space Marine force that looks pretty nice...and now it's time to paint them :(

- Regular gaming buddies also on the forums.

No idea if anyone I know is on here.

- Basically anything of interest to give us a better understanding of who you are and what you’re about.

I used to work as a game designer for Decipher Inc., working on CCGs, and I've traveled quite a bit to play them (and some 40k). I take a very competetive (but fair) approach to GW games that some people might not like.

Also, I have around 100,000 points worth of 40k armies (and only about 10,000 points of WHFB, sadly), and over the past 10 years I've owned every army there is. Currently I don't possess any Necrons, Orks, Dark Eldar or Tyranids... but everything else I have scads of.

- Why not include a picture?

I'll get there eventually, but I have to figure out exactly where my pics are and get the URL.

Nice to meet you!
And welcome to Heresy.
Enjoy!
Also...

LMAO for the story about the bike tennis that killed the ork mob!

Reminds me of a scene in Demented Cartoon Movie...
(2 stickmen lying on grass)
"Heh. Im bored."
"Me too."
"Waddaya wanna do?"
"I dunno."
"Ummm."
"Ummm... wanna play a game?"
"Sure, what game?"
"... I dunno."
"OH! I KNOW! Lets play, toss the h-bomb!"
"Yeah!"
(throw h-bomb to each other)
"WEEEEE!"
(one drops bomb. nuclear explosion)

I may have a few quotes wrong there, but oh well.
