Hi all, would you guys be interested in seeing the return of this gallery?

We tend to have a good laugh and the pics tend to be suitably dire, we can either release all of them as they come out or just the ones featuring EPICentre staff.

On a related note, we keep talking about having a bio's page where we get to know all the people who work with the EPIC fan scene. This never quite makes it (I am one of the guilty peeps) for several reasons, but having received an email this morning that pretty much interrogates you, I thought it might be worth adding a few questions to it, then sending it to the EPICentre/EPIComms staff members and perhaps putting up the results, possibly with a picture on the respective website?

Sample questionnaire - a good source of general knowledge perhaps? We can remove offensive questions at this point and add some EPIC related questions (EG: How long have you been playing EPIC?
What armies do you collect?
What is your favourite army?
What is your largest army and how many points is it?)

Okay here's what you're supposed to do... copy (not forward) this entire
e-mail and paste it into a new e-mail that you can send. Change all of the
answers so that they apply to you. Then, send this to a whole bunch of people
you know *INCLUDING* the person who sent it to you. The theory is that you
will learn a lot of little known facts about your friends. It is fun and
easy.

11. Have you ever told a secret you swore not to tell? Yes, but it was either that or jail. Don't ask.
12. Do looks matter? If you have them, 'yes', if you don't, 'no'.
13. How do you release anger? Play Grand Theft Auto - with cheats.
14. Where is your second home? Rather not say...
15. What was your favourite toy as a child? My 925 child typewriter - very 1950's
16. What class in school do you think is totally useless? R.E. - I can't be saved.
17. Do you have a journal? No
18. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Nooooooo....
19. Have you ever been in a mosh pit? Oh yeah, rock on!
20. What do you look for in a Man or Woman? Personality, wit, intelligence, kindness and generosity and FUN.
21. Who is your favourite singer? Michael Jackson.

Hi!

I'm guilty too. I bring this up quite often and then dont follow through.

One of the things of the original Epicentre was the list of short bios with a picture.

We should do it.

Personally I think that rather than spending valuable painting time filling in a rather pointless questionnaire, the answers to which virtually no one will read, it might be better to encourage people to model, paint and game and tell us about that.

I am not interested in the last person you spoke on the phone too, it's not even biographical.

I would rather see models that people have painted, converted.

I would rather see pictures and descriptions of games people have played.

If you want a bio, fair enough, but keep it short, simple, relevant.

Spend time painting and gaming.

And drinking.

Especially with odd goth girls.

Hi Guys,

Personally I think that rather than spending valuable painting time filling in a rather pointless questionnaire, the answers to which virtually no one will read, it might be better to encourage people to model, paint and game and tell us about that.

I am not interested in the last person you spoke on the phone too, it's not even biographical.

I don't mind saying it, but...

JIMBO is right again!

Let's keep biographies short and gaming-related like the old ones we had on Tuffskull's site.

I like all of you guys, but I'm not really interested too know whether you smoke, what you favorite finger is and the like. I'd rather know about your gaming interests and miniatures collections.

Aye, aye, Cap'n Jimbo! :)

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Hi!

On the old epicentre we had a picture and a few demographic data lines.

I thought it was good enough.

Well, mr. webmaster DID propose to change the meaningless questions to gaming-related ones...  :)

But I too think the questionnaire should be a LOT shorter.


You sure you're ready for this? Me on the left...


Didn't know you were in the Adeptus Arbites...  :O
