Meet the gamers behind the mics.
Favourite Army: Tyranids
The eternal hobby butterfly. Whilst Dan’s true love will always be Tyranids, he just can’t helped but be distracted by amazing models and cool new rules. A big fan of heavy skewed but awesomely themed army ideas, such as a Space Marine army comprising only Bikes and Dreadnoughts in 5th, an almost-all-Genestealer army from 6th and his “everything has to have a jump pack” Blood Angels list from 7th edition. During 8th edition he has been concentrating on his Sons of Medusa Primaris army, but is always on the look-out for the next project…
Favourite Army: Adepta Sororitas
Steve is a narrative gaming guru and can often be found poring over pages and pages of lore, planning whole armies off one small snippet of background. A fan of mad conversions, characterfully-themed armies and forging a narrative, Steve also hosts Realms at War, the UK’s biggest and best narrative gaming event for Age of Sigmar.
Favourite Army: Adeptus Astartes
Ben is relatively new to 40k, but brings a brand new perspective to the established lore and a whole host of prior tournament expertise from Age of Sigmar and WHFB. Ben also runs Blood and Glory, an annual gaming convention in Derby, UK which hosts hundreds of gamers across 40k, 30k, AoS and so much more.
