My Bio:

Creator of THWG, Worlds best tSport commentator, Based in Nottingham UK. Massive collection of armies but 2018 i am playingAOS - Chaos Dwarves  40k - OrksI like castle builds and im a gamble gamer

Gaming style:

Big risk big reward, its my bedroom technique too.

I prefer combos and utility to a more traditional efficient list. Trying out the fringe edge competitive lists and polarizing my army can also be what I like to do. I'm also a confidence gamer. Full of guts and bravado but really its all a bluff. 
I have a long way to go to fully understand my gaming style but looking forward to the journey.
