My name is Badger (harks from before the internet, well before THE INTERNET).
I came back to the hobby after a lengthy hiatus about 2 years ago. My friends and I have been mostly playing GW specialist games harking back to its and our golden era. Blood Bowl, Necromunda, Gorkamorka, Space Hulk, as well as some more obscure ones.
I first got into Warmachine looking for alternative Dark Eldar models and got sucked deeper and deeper. As a result my faction is Cryx although I have an urge to get some Circle or maybe Trollbloods. Cygnar, particularly Caine look pretty cool to me as well.
I do like to compete when I play but I am not so much into super tuned lists and micro-optimization. I kind of burned myself out with that playing WoW a few years back. I am a software developer by trade and had an application written to read armoury and give relative stat values based on simulated rotations.
I like to play what appeals to me, and that is not always what is considered the most ideal. I was the guy in Black Temple pushing to prove a Balance Druid was viable (I understand most falled flat doing that).
I really like the fluff behind the pirate side of Cryx. I am working on a Terminus conversion and have Skarre in the meantime for my tabletop. Terminus in the fluff and artwork seems like he can end worlds but I think the stock model does not portray that quite so well.
I like units like the Raiders, Witches, Revenants etc, even though I know a lot of people do not. I guess I have more fun taking units which I like for whatever reason, then trying to do as best I can with them, making that my competitive drive. I like the look of the NQ Skarre theme list as well with the living pirates.
I do not mind playing anyone, with any kind of list or motivation. Being pretty new I expect to lose a lot, and did last night. Sorry I have forgotten your name but thanks for the game. Whilst I lost I did learn a couple of things about my units and yours.
I will never rage quit and only a genuine emergency would have me stop (I understand you can save games in that case). Excessive smack talk and over compensation would likely annoy me but only result in preventing a rematch. I am in the UK time zone but with a wildly varying sleep and work pattern.
I am mostly looking for 15-25 point games as the 35 was a bit much for me to manage yet. Do not mind playing them though.
