MoC Player’s Profile – Killboum

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 Killboum

What is the origin of your nickname?
It dates from my first Counter Strike LAN.

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 Certified Public Accountant. In 30k, I would have been a little scribe who follows a Magos of the Mechanicum.

Where are you from? Are you member of a club (or regular player circle)?
I live in Nice. I am the founder and president of the Nice Wargame Association. We organize several wargames events in Nice and its surroundings (FIJ in Cannes, Tag Team in Mouans Sartoux, etc).

Rather Horus or The Emperor?
Rather Emperor, but it depends as I like the Word Bearers.

What is your favorite 30k army?
Raven Guard, it was my first army at 40k and I also wanted the 30k version.

How long have you been in the hobby?
I started at 15, so it has been 18 years.

What aspects of the hobby do you like most?
I like two aspects: the game because I love playing, I am a big kid and also the social side because I like the contact with others.

Are you playing other games than 30k?
In addition to wh30k and 40k, I also play Warhammer Battle 8th ed, Necromunda, Mordheim and Kings of War.

Rather brushes or airbrush?
Neither of them, because I have les and less time to paint, so now I have my mini pro-painted! Otherwise, my favorite technique was dipping.

How did you hear about the Medal of Colors events?
By Matt (SimpleAsWar) with whom we were in high school together. At the time, we had founded together with another mate (Bastien), the Nice Wargame Association which continues to exist since, through several events on the French Riviera.

What would you recommend to those who would like to join the Medal of Colors adventure/community?
Get started! These events are a great way to meet a lot of players in a different mindset than traditional tournaments.

Do you have a Hobby-related anecdote to share with us?
I would always remember a game in which my opponent managed 36 2+ saves in a row. I think he had sold his soul to the devil. Worse, in addition, he was an Alsatian!


français Killboum

Quel est l’origine de ton pseudo ?
Ca date de mes premières LAN à Counter Strike.

Que fais-tu dans la vie ? Et quel métier aurais-tu fait si tu étais né au 30ème millénaire ?
Je suis Expert Comptable. En 30k, j’aurais été un petit scribe dans la suite d’un Magos du Mechanicum.

De quelle ville viens-tu ? Fais-tu partie d’un club (ou d’un cercle de joueur régulier) ? 
J’habite à Nice. Je suis le fondateur et président de la Nice Wargame Association. Chaque année, nous organisons plusieurs événements wargames dans la région de Nice et ses environs (FIJ à Cannes, Tag Team à Mouans Sartoux, etc).

Plutôt Horus ou Empereur ?
Plutôt Empereur, mais ça dépend car j’aime beaucoup les Word Bearers.

Quelle est ton armée 30k favorite ?
Raven Guard, c’était ma premiere armée à 40k et je la voulais aussi en 30k.

Depuis combien de temps as-tu commencé le hobby ?
J’ai commencé à 15 ans, ça fait donc 18 ans.

Quels sont les aspects du hobby que tu apprécies le plus ? 
J’aime deux aspects: le jeu car j’adore jouer, je suis un grand gamin et aussi le coté social, car j’aime le contact avec les autres.

Joues-tu à d’autres jeux que 30k ?
En plus de wh30k et 40k, je joue aussi à Warhammer battle V8, Necromunda, Mordheim et Kings of War.

Plutôt pinceaux ou aéro ?
Ni l’un ni l’autre, car je n’ai plus trop le temps de peindre et du coup je fais peindre ! Sinon la technique que j’aime bien, c’est la lasure.

Comment as-tu entendu parlé du mouvement Medal of Colors ?
Par Matt (SimpleAsWar) avec qui on était au Lycée ensemble. A l’époque, nous avions fondé ensemble avec un autre pote (Bastien), la Nice Wargame Association qui continue d’exister depuis, aux travers de plusieurs événements sur la Cote d’Azur. 

Que conseillerais-tu à ceux qui voudraient rejoindre l’aventure Medal of Colors ?
De se lancer ! Ces événements sont un super moyen de rencontrer pleins de joueurs dans un état d’esprit différent des tournois classiques.

Est ce que tu as une anecdote Hobby à raconter ?
Je me souviendrai toujours d’une partie lors de laquelle mon adversaire a réussi 36 sauvegardes à 2+ d’affilés. Je pense qu’il avait vendu son âme au diable. Pire, en plus, c’était un Alsacien !

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

Killboum is one of our MoC veterans as he basically attended to all the Medal of Colors ever (Horus Heresy 2016, Inq28munda 2017 and Horus Heresy 2017). In addition to be one of the smartest wh40k player I know, he is also a great Tournament Organizer and gives a lot of his free time to animate the wargame community on the south of France. Big thanks for that!
