Wargamer's Q & A
Found this on the Angry Lurker's blog (see the link off to the right) and decided to have a go at it myself.
1. Favourite Wargaming period and why?
High Fantasy I think. Interesting since I don't currently play anything of that description but I do like it a lot!
2. Next period, money no object?
With all due regard to the previous question, 20th Century Arab-Israeli conflicts.
3. Favourite 5 films?
The Princess Bride
Star Trek II, The Wrath of Khan
Big Trouble in Little China
Joe Versus The Volcano
there is currently no #5
4. Favourite 5 TV series?
The Office (UK and US, both are equally great)
Star Trek: TNG
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
5. Favourite book and author?
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
6. Greatest General? Can’t count yourself!
7. Favourite Wargames rules?
Damn that a tough one. WHFB 5th edition probably.
8. Favourite Sport and team?
I love watching NFL football
No favorite team - it just leads to heartbreak
9. If you had a only use once time machine, when and where would you go?
I'd love to see pre-Columbian Tenochtitlan. Wouldn't want to stay there necessarily. Seems like one of those utterly fantastic and unbelievable things.
10. Last meal on Death Row?
Big filet mignon, rare. Loaded baked potato. Glenlivet 15yo scotch.
11. Fantasy relationship and why?
I'm already in it. My wife is my bestest friend ever.
12. If your life were a movie, who would play you?
13. Favourite Comic Superhero?
Superman. He's everything a superhero should be. He's super. He's noble. He's the ultimate good guy.
14. Favourite Military quote?
"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" Admiral Farragut
15. Historical destination to visit?
Since I have to just answer one, I'll say the Colosseum in Rome.
16. Biggest Wargaming regret?
Buying so damn many books for certain games. GW and Battlefront, I'm looking at you.
17. Favourite Fantasy job?
18. Favourite Song, Top 5?
Fool In The Rain, Led Zeppelin (entire Zeppelin catalog should be listed here)
You Don't Know Me, Drivin' N Cryin'
Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd
More Than A Feeling, Boston
O Holy Night, (Various, but when a top-notch singer does it, the song is incomparable)
19. Favourite Wargaming Moment?
Beating the undefeated Skaven army in a WHFB campaign many years ago. I marshaled my Lizardmen to a perfect storm of flanking, perfect timing, powerful magic and good fortune to utterly rout the filthy rats. Anyone who has played wargames knows that nothing ever goes to plan. Well that was my single game moment of everything going not just according to plan, but above and beyond.
20. The miserable Git question, what upsets you?
Whiners and crybabies. The stupid. High power bills.
