Tale of 4 Gamers Player Profile – AJ
Here is the fourth of our player profiles for our Tale of 4 Gamers participants. Hope you enjoy and any questions please just give us a shout!
Hobby Background: I have been involved with miniature war gaming since the late eighties on and off. After taking a break during my late teens and finishing university I worked for Games Workshop for 11 years across the UK and Europe. That time really helped me understand how to paint large armies to a deadline.
I was very involved in tournaments as well and generally pretty productive. After another short break I am now heavily involved in both the GW and wider miniatures hobby and run this blog and display my painting projects on social media as DiesIraeMinis.
Army Choice: Celestial Lions
Why did you choose this army?
I wanted to try new 40K so went with the new army. I think in gaming terms I would prefer a different force but there was also a lot of consideration made to time. I have a lot on the o and Space Marines are easy to paint.
Any plans regarding painting and modelling?
Honestly? Because it’s easy to paint. I wanted to paint the new Primaris marines and after looking at a few schemes settled on this as it will be pretty quick. I wanted something a little different but the fact that I could still get some third party transfers helped.
I have converted a Techmarine in MKX armour purely for aesthetics but most of the conversions if any will be subtle and little reposes or kit bashes. I may look to add some other bits later but for now a lot of the stuff from Dark Imperium plus a few other squads.
First 25 power: Originally I had intended this to be 2 Intercessor squads, a Hellblaster squad and a Gravis Captain but this could change…
