About Me
About Me
Name:
Nathan "Nathan Young" Young

Where are you from and where do you live right now?
I'm from near London and live in the North of England, near Durham.

What do you do for living?
I work as a web designer, social media and crowdfunding consultant and board game designer.

How long have you been involved in wargaming?
I've been wargaming since 2005, playing warhammer fantasy, bloodbowl, mordheim, twilight struggle, commands and colours etc. I play a lot of board games, particularly euro games such as 7 wonders and dominion and LCGs such as netrunner and doomtown.

How did you get into the Hobby and what have you done since then?
I remember always walking past Games Workshop as a kid and loving the beautiful models inside. Eventually my budget could stretch to buying some miniatures and then I started playing their game. I left for a while but rejoined to play a few end times games. With the death of WHFB, a group of friends tried to re-engineer 8th, but then I found the 9th age and signed on. Recently I've played some X wing, which is also really fun.

Which armies do you play?
Saurian Ancients (2k), starting to learn Orcs and Goblins. Play a bit on UB.

Why do you support the 9th Age project?
I want to play a ranks and flanks fantasy game with epic storytelling and tactical (but fun and occasionally random) gameplay. It's great that it's a community project, because we can have fun in the creation as well as playing of it.

What is your personal role in the 9th Age project team?
I am a member of the background and art team, which I would really recommend becoming part of. I have loved being able to help shape the world around the rules while keeping the flavour in line with a medieval/renaissance fantasy game.

What are your hobbies outside the 9th Age
Outside of the dice-o-sphere, I am a committed Christian and parody rap artist. I like reading sci fi and fantasy books and playing ultimate frisbee. I don't have a beard, but live in harmony with those who do.
