JBW: Hey Robert, Thanks for taking the time to talk to me. So how did you get into 40K?
I got into 40 about 4 years ago when i was looking for a table top game to replace the void getting out of Classic Battletech left. i had seen 40k in the hobby stores many times, but never tried it out until then.
JBW: What other Games/ Systems do you play?
I own a Xbox 360, and i play a lot of shooter/action adventure games. I also have recently started playing Star Trek Attack Wing. on occasion I’ve been known to play Magic the Gathering and Netrunner.
JBW: Do you have other 40K armies? Would you mind giving us a quick list of them?
At the moment I have two other armies I’m currently working on besides my Tau. Tyranids and Raven Guard
JBW: In your opinion what do you think makes a good tournament player?
Someone who doesn’t take it too seriously. i think every ones main focus should be having fun and enjoying themselves.
JBW: What excites you about tournaments, or what do you expect from an organized event?
Playing against new opponents is what I find to be the most exciting part of it. There is no way to know what to expect, so all you can hope for is that you’re prepared.
JBW: How are you planning or prepping for this event?
I have been planning and preparing for CAGE for the last 3 months. there is a group of 40k players that show up every Saturday at The Foundry, and we all try to make competitive lists. so after several months of practicing with the CAGE format i was able to come up with a list that really works for me
JBW: Say there was someone reading this who wants to try and qualify for the 2015 Cage Match at their local store. What advice would you give them?
I would tell them to keep playing and to try new units or options if others are not working out. but the main point is, you have got to stick with it
JBW: Well thanks again for doing the interview.
Sure. It was a pleasure
