[Lo's Lowdown] Introductions Galore!

My name's Loquacious, and I'm part of what's being lovingly (or mockingly) referred to as "Team Awesome".

What is Team Awesome? It's a bunch of folks that love the hobby, wanting to help make the community better, stronger, smarter, faster... ("we can build it!") or something equally cool like that. We all have something really valuable and interesting to add to the mix here at MWC, and we hope you enjoy what we've got in store for you!

What do I bring to the table? How am I awesome? I'm not the magnet pro, like Lantz. I am not part of a massive super online store, like Justin. I'm not crazy talented in the painting/modeling/conversion/hacking department like Matt or Martin.

Me? I'm Loquacious. I run a blog called World of Wonder and write for the guys over at HOP once a week about being a new 40k Player. While I'm new to 40K, that doesn't mean I don't have serious wargaming props. I came into the hobby the hard way, as a second generation kid learning with the old beardy dudes oft-referred to as grognards. My dad's a hardcore SSI & Avalon Hill player, who taught me ASL and made me weep at those itty bitty chits and all the darn movement. I've played Napoleonics, Historicals, WWII aerial games, Westerns (Desperado, anyone?) and a fair bit of Warmachine/Hordes. I'm more than passing familiar with Confrontation and Malifaux and have finally drunk the 40K Kool-Aid and joined the fray at the FLGS I happen to own.

I've been gaming for over 25 years, with a little experience in a lot of areas. I'll be talking twice a month about some of the cool modeling, painting, conversion and terrain products available on the market. Please let me know if you have any special requests or have questions about anything coming down the pipeline. I'll be glad to investigate and report what I find back to the community!
