About Me
About Me
  • Name?
    My name is Max Youngquist
  • How old are you?
    32 years old
  • Where are you from and where do you live right now?
    I'm from Illinois, currently living in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
  • What do you do for living?
    I manage the accounting and tax departments for a large family office.
  • Since when are you in the Hobby?
    I became involved in the hobby during middle school and stayed involved in the hobby till high school playing Warhammer 40k. I took a break until my last year of college where I rejoined the hobby in Warhammer Fantasy 7th edition. From there I've branched out to T9A, AoS, Warmahordes, Battletech, and other miniature wargames.
  • How did you get into the Hobby and what have you done since then?
    I got into the hobby when stumbling upon the Warhammer 40k universe as a kid searching for books to read that would fill my thirst for sci-fi and fantasy at that point in time. Since investing in the hobby I've just enjoyed the ride to new armies, new games, and new friends.
  • Which armies do you play/possess?
    • Main armies: O&G, SE
    • Just delved into HBE since the 9th Age project
  • Why do you support the 9th Age project?
    I have followed the project for a while as a player and have resonated with the project, its goals, and evolution. The miniature wargame universe was ripe for a game and rules to fill the void that the end of 8th left, and the game path that 8th was on for RNF fantasy battle. While there are many great fantasy miniature games in the market when it ended and currently, this project fills a specific experience, complexity, development that others cannot offer.
