1. Favourite wargaming period and why?
I'm going to have to say modern to near future. Currently, everything I paint is to play a modern day zombie game, but I also like the though of gang warfare without the zeds. In the back of my mind I also wouldn't mind a bit more futuristic combat, but I'm not ready for that yet.
2. Next period, money no object?
I'd probably like to have a go at something similar to the Hundred Year War. I don't know a lot of the actual history involved there, but I do love some well painted knights on horseback doing battle. I also sometimes plan to tackle a Warhammer Chaos Warrior army, just because I like the look of them. I've never played Warhammer though.
3. Favourite 5 films?
Shaun of the Dead
Lucky Number Slevin
Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
4. Favourite 5 TV series?
Game of Thrones
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Sons of Anarchy
5. Favourite book an author?
The Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series by George R.R. Martin. I picked these books up about 10 years ago, and nothing has compared since. I am very happy that it is now an HBO series as well.
6. Favourite General? Can't count yourself!
7. Favourite Wargames rules?
Though I have't played it yet, I suspect I'll be a big fan of All Things Zombie. I am looking forward to the solo aspect of it mostly. Rules that I have played and been a big fan of include Heroscape and A Song of Blades and Heroes.
8. Favourite sport and team?
The only sport I really watch is hockey, eh. And the team I follow is the Pittsburgh Penguins.
9. One use for a time machine, where do you go?
Probably back about 20 years so I could get in on the bottom floor of Google (and/or something like it) and reap the benefits.
10. Last meal on Deathrow?
Snow crab, pepperoni pizza and Vanilla Coke.
11. Fantasy relationship and why?
Jennifer Tilly, because she seems like a wholesome, down to earth girl...
12. If your life were a movie, who would play you?
I'm not sure, probably some nameless extra on this straight to DVD flop.
13. Favourite Comic Superhero?
Very unoriginal here, but since I'm not super into comics I'll say Batman. And that is purely based on movies, since I haven't even read Batman comics.
14. Favourite Military quote?
"In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed." -George W. Bush, 2003
15. Historical Destination to visit?
Not sure. At one point I used to want to visit many historical destinations. But at this point in my life, my preferred vacations include tropical islands, sany beaches and lots of rum.
16. Biggest wargamming regret?
Not getting into it sooner. I always figured I couldn't take part because I was not a painted. Well I'm still not a great painter, but I enjoy it. I imagine if I had jumped into the hobby in my teens, I'd be a good painter now and have a lot more experience.
17. Favourite fantasy job?
As a member of the unemployed at this point, I'll say any job is a fantasy job.
18. Favourite song top 5?
Coma White - Marilyn Manson
Las Cruces Jail - Two Gallants
Fortunate Son - CCR
19. Favourite Wargamming moment?
Anytime I'm actually playing with someone is a good moment, I think.
20. What upsets you?
Very little. I don't like being upset, so I don't let many things bother me. Of course horrible human behaviours bother me, but I am not really exposed to that on a day to day bases. I'm pretty happy and laid back.
Well that about does it. I've really enjoyed reading these on everyone's blogs, so I hope at least some of you enjoy mine.
