About Me
About Me
Name: Calcathin

How old are you? 30+

Since when are you in the Hobby?
20 years in the hobby, I started in last year of school when I was 18 years old. That was straight into the last bits of WHFB 5th Ed and that glorious box of Magic. I'll never forget the 5th Ed WHFB Magic Phase box became obsolete a couple of months after I bought it...

How did you get into the Hobby and what have you done since then?
Got introduced into the game by my best friend, who happens to be a good ECT-level player, and been playing regularily since then. A great portion of my games have been against him and our wargamming group, and I have occasionally participated in local tournaments.

Which armies do you play?
My main army was, is, and will be Highborn Elves. I also own a small Ogre Khans army, but find myself always preferring to spend time in the hobby doing stuff on the HbE models

Why do you support the 9th Age project?
It is the better ruleset to play with my R&F squared-based miniatures, has an active community with whom to engage and the feedback provided by the community is evaluated by T9A organisation when considering army book updates.

What is your personal role in the 9th Age project team?
During 2018 and 2019 I was ACS for HbE army, and for some time in this period also was Advisory Board member.

I have now recently (early 2021) joined the Essence of War design team; this is the T9A ruleset aimed for both for entry-level players into T9A Wargamming and for more seasoned T9A players who are looking for a lighter and quicker (60-90min) game experience.
