Hullo, guys, gals, and plastic folk (not Nicki Minaj),

My name is Kenny, Ken, Kenneth, or as I used to call myself: Kentastic. I'm a college student, currently enrolled in a Community College which, conveniently is only a 30-minute drive from my home, and I love Lego. Adore Lego. Cherish and worship Lego. Loved it since I was a wee Mini-Ken, and today that love has never once faltered.

Now I've heard of this Brikwars thing and I've been following it in-and-out over the past 2-3 years. I scrolled through the site and the pages of core rules and past battles, and soon I was hooked. I'm slightly familiar with table-top gaming since Magic: The Gathering and Warhammer are sold in the same gaming store I sometimes visit, though I never found myself wanting to buy Warhammer figures. Magic is an addicting enough hobby, and since I already have mountains of Lego at my disposal, why not hop in on Brikwars? So here I am.

Enough blabber, I've probably said too much already. I'll just go through the list like a good chap.

- Yes, I still live with my mother. These days I'm lucky to just have the money to pay off my car every month and fill up the tank.
- I come from my mother. HAHA. I'm so hilarious. Anyway, I'm from a tiny little town in Pennsylvania. I've actually been in the same neighborhood my entire life so far.
- My quest is, at least metaphorically, is to conquer mine enemies of plastic (Once again, not Nicki Minaj), and earn my place amongst the ranks of Brikwar-folk. Or just... to hang out and talk Brikwars.

~On a more serious note, my 'quest' is to become a 3D animator of some sort.

Anyway, that's me. Looking forward to become a part of something I've wanted to legitimately become a part of for a while now.

* - Who are you?
Sometimes I don't know who I am, sometimes I'm me, sometimes myself takes out me and reigns supreme, but most of the time I am simply anonymous..

* - Do you live with your mom? (Trust me, this is important)
Yes, 22 going on 23, but can't afford to live anywhere, been job hunting for roughly 4 years now.

* - Where do you come from?
Middle of nowhere(no, I mean it, there's a bar nearby called 'Nowhere?')

* - What is your quest?
thought wargaming with Lego was cool, so came to check it out and plan on posting up my battles to come(using heavily modified Warhammer 40K rules, since they are perhaps the best template to work from, will I post them here? doubt it, not sure how it goes with posting rules your your own game)

I am AZKAMAT, Commander in Chief of all military forces, land and space, of the great Federalist Party of our wondrous homeworld Buttsylvania, and all forces derived thereof. I discovered Brikwars back in March, and have been playing ever since. I actually am not a lifelong fanatic for brick...er...'scuse me, brik toys; I only just got hooked back on Lego almost 2 years ago. I never even liked them that much in my child hood. Anyway, my passion is ranged infantry combat, and my armies and the battles they fight greatly reflect this. I modified the rules so that the average assault rifle shoots 30 inches; a .50 Cal Barret, 60 inches. Alas I'm also a rather horrible builder...to make an understatement.

Yes, yes, I live with mom and dad still. But I seriously doubt Warhead would want the FBI...

Like, for serious? South Carolina. Right outside Charleston...In the middle of nowhere.

To destroy the delusional and naive Utopian forces of Urinatus, seize AssCrapistan and annihlate its alien population, and spread Lady Liberty's message throughout our 3-world star system (And perhaps the universe, in time) by means of bayonet, lead, rocket, and M1 Abrams Tank.

I have no concept of what the significance of that is. But I take your word for it.

Not really, if you have entire room floor spaces to play on like I do. There's an entire gym room in my house that is never used. The 60 inches for the snipers is the longest currently used, and gets ate up fast. Also, I use a big skill and mobility penalty for sniper rifles. Use of 5, firer must be still, and there's also a big penalty for shooting close range targets. On top of that if it's a big sniper the user gets a -1 inch movement penalty and for every consecutive shot gets a -1 skill penalty. If I play on a table or other confined space I shrink the ranges back down to regular size, though.

I came up with these extreme range rules after I decided it seemed retarded for a few orks with axes to close with an MG nest over open ground because the range was limited to 10 inches. So I tripled the ranges listed in the rule books, and now melee combat is almost totally unheard of.
