MoC Player’s Profile – DRed

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 DRed

What do you do for a living? And what profession would you have done if you were born in the 30th millennium?
I am a construction engineer. In 30k I would have been an eternal (sensei?), to know more than the others.

Where are you from? Are you member of a club (or regular player circle)?
I live in Avillard in Savoie (France).

Rather Horus or The Emperor?
The Emperor, he is so handsome!

What is your favorite 30k army?
The Imperial Fists, but I also like the Thousand Sons and the Alpha Legion because in fact they are loyalists.

How long have you been in the hobby?
More than 25 years ago, ouch … do not write that, say just 15 years as everyone … 😀

What aspects of the hobby do you like most?
Fluff, painting, modeling and creating armies.

Are you playing other games than 30k?
I play Warhammer Battle (but not AOS, it sucks).

Rather brushes or airbrush?
Airbrush because the finish is better.

How did you hear about the Medal of Colors events?
On Salaise Figurines Studio blog.

What would you recommend to those who would like to join the Medal of Colors adventure/community?
It takes organizing, memorizing the rules, preparing his army list and then making a painting schedule and sticking to it.

Do you have a Hobby-related anecdote to share with us?
Once I melt a Land Raider while priming it with an official GW paint can …

Que fais-tu dans la vie ? Et quel métier aurais-tu fait si tu étais né au 30ème millénaire ?
Je suis ingénieur en bâtiment. En 30k j’aurais été un éternel, pour en connaitre plus que les autres.

De quelle ville viens-tu ? Fais-tu partie d’un club (ou d’un cercle de joueur régulier) ? 
J’habite à Avillard en Savoie.

Plutôt Horus ou Empereur ?
L’Empereur, il est beaucoup plus beau !

Quelle est ton armée 30k favorite ?
Les Imperial Fists mais j’aime bien aussi les Thousand Sons et l’Alpha Legion parce qu’en fait ils sont loyalistes.

Depuis combien de temps as-tu commencé le hobby ?
Il y a plus de 25 ans, oula… ne mets pas ça, dis juste 15 ans comme tout le monde…

Quels sont les aspects du hobby que tu apprécies le plus ? 
Le fluff, la peinture, le modélisme et la création d’armée.

Joues-tu à d’autres jeux que 30k ?
Je joues à Warhammer Battle (mais pas AOS, c’est nul).

Plutôt pinceaux ou aéro ?
Aéro car il y a une meilleure qualité de finition.

Comment as-tu entendu parlé du mouvement Medal of Colors ?
Sur le blog Salaise Figurines Studio.

Que conseillerais-tu à ceux qui voudraient rejoindre l’aventure Medal of Colors ?
Il faut de l’organisation, potasser les règles, préparer sa liste d’armée puis faire un planning de peinture et s’y tenir.

Est ce que tu as une anecdote Hobby à raconter ?
Un jour j’ai fait fondre un Land Raider en le sous-couchant avec une bombe de peinture officielle GW…

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