Fighting the darkness with a flashlight
Well now that The 6+ Save is up and going I’m feeling rather hasty about posting something of meat. It’s seems I’m gonna be the only dork to run around with my name open to the world, so indeed I am Kenny Heater, a twenty something college student who has way to much free time and a hobby in which he strains his love/hate relationship with. This is my testimony.
My humble beginnings with Warhammer 40k stemmed from being a young nerd in love with video games and the such, Warhammer 40k eventually found it’s way to me, as a young teen I frequented my local game store at the time, one such called Game Cove, where I learned the secret ways of playing with toy soldiers of the future and their bitter struggle to always roll higher dice than the opponent. To say the least I was hooked at first seeing a hobby that was loved by others and second by knowing that my army would be “MY” army it would have my flavor something that no one else would have.
To say the least I bought what I could from my parents allowance at the time and began playing Imperial Guard, these poor men had no power armor, no super reflexes, no they had flashlights and they would fight the darkness with it no matter what and I too would join them in their eternal struggle. My first few months was just trying to get my army together and learning the game much better so I came by and watched often during tournaments and open play days. (BTW during this time some business junky came by and bought Game Cove and had it moved to a better location and renamed it, Pair A Dice Games ) To say the least I fought the tide of terrible that I was with my Guard at first untill I was decent eventually when I got my first job I began buying another army. Thus the Anime Space Commies that the Tau are became my next victim.
Buying Tau was only the first step I took as I descended into madness, eventually buying and playing Orks, Grey Knights, Space Marines, Chaos Daemons, Tau Again, Guard Again, Flesh Tearers and now my newest victim is Dark Eldar. As the armies passed so did life and when I hit college I began working at this store that had consumed my pay check, where I do so to this day as the Event Coordinator.
My play style is always how I want to play and what is most fun for me, no one can tell me different but I do take suggestion and I will continue on this way as well. Look in the coming weeks for my all female Dark Eldar army and it’s in progress and finished shots for an upcoming tournament.
