MoC Player’s Profile – Gritche

Article in English (top) et en français (plus bas)

Medal of Colors is a growing community of miniatures wargamers which like to play “fun and friendly battles on nice battleboards with fully painted armies”. We wanted to highlight these Medal of Colors’ Members and their individual Hobby story. During the latest Medal of Colors – Horus Heresy 2017, we asked them a few questions and we will share with you their answers for the next few days.

English Gritche

What do you do for a living? And what profession would you have done if you were born in the 30th millennium?
I’m an engineer, project manager. In 30k, I would have been a Blood Angels Remembrancer.

Where are you from? Are you member of a club (or regular player circle)?
I live in Lyon (France) but I am from Ardeche. I’m in the “Armée des Chauves” group (TN: Army of the bald guys).

Rather Horus or The Emperor?
Emperor, whatever happens, I am a loyalist.

What is your favorite 30k army?
The Blood Angels are my favorite even though this time I play World Eaters to change.

How long have you been in the hobby?
I’ve played 40K for at least 10 years.

What aspects of the hobby do you like most?
I love painting, Lore and get trolled.

Are you playing other games than 30k?
Not much except for wh40k especially with the new 8th ed.

Rather brushes or airbrush?
I’m rather airbrush. With some lessons, you can quickly get nice effects. It’s faster and easier to have better quality.

How did you hear about the Medal of Colors events?
I took painting lessons with Rémi (Salaise Figurines Studio ) and I had already attended to the Medal of Colors – Horus Heresy 2016.

What would you recommend to those who would like to join the Medal of Colors adventure/community?
Come, it’s a lot of fun!

Do you have a Hobby-related anecdote to share with us?
So many! Lately, I airbrushed a layer of white paint but there was still a little bit of red in the bucket of my airbrush and I ended up with a pink Spartan…

Que fais-tu dans la vie ? Et quel métier aurais-tu fait si tu étais né au 30ème millénaire ?
Je suis ingénieur, chef de projet. En 30k, j’aurais été une Commémorateur pour les Blood Angels.

De quelle ville viens-tu ? Fais-tu partie d’un club (ou d’un cercle de joueur régulier) ? 
J’habite à Lyon, mais je suis originaire d’Ardèche. Je suis dans le groupe de l’Armée des Chauves.

Plutôt Horus ou Empereur ?
Empereur, quoiqu’il arrive, je suis loyaliste.

Quelle est ton armée 30k favorite ?
Les Blood Angels même si cette fois je joue World Eaters pour changer.

Depuis combien de temps as-tu commencé le hobby ?
Je joue à 40K depuis au moins 10 ans.

Quels sont les aspects du hobby que tu apprécies le plus ? 
J’aime la peinture, le fluff et me faire troller.

Joues-tu à d’autres jeux que 30k ?
Non quasiment pas à part wh40k surtout avec la nouvelle V8.

Plutôt pinceaux ou aéro ?
Je suis plutôt aéro. Avec quelques cours, on obtient rapidement des effets sympas. C’est plus rapide et facile d’avoir une meilleure qualité.

Comment as-tu entendu parlé du mouvement Medal of Colors ?
J’ai pris des cours de peinture avec Rémi (Salaise Figurines Studio) et j’avais déjà fait le Medal of Colors de 2016.

Que conseillerais-tu à ceux qui voudraient rejoindre l’aventure Medal of Colors ?
Il faut venir pour le fun.

Est ce que tu as une anecdote Hobby à raconter ?
Plein ! Dernièrement, j’ai passé une couche de blanc alors qu’il restait un fond de rouge dans le godet de mon aéro et ça a peint mon Spartan en rose…

Here are the pictures of the World Eaters army he played at the Medal of Colors – Horus Heresy 2017.

Gritche is one of our MoC veterans as he was already there last year at Medal of Colors – Horus Heresy 2016. Noteworthy, last year he played Blood Angels and he decided to do a brand new army for this year and succeed since as you’ve seen he played a World Eaters army this year. An army a year, that’s impressive!
