As the lead blogger for the Age Of Sigmar Community team I thought it would be a great idea to recognize and interview members of our local gaming community. For our first interview I reached out to one of my favorite AoS players; Frank DeLoach. Frank and his clubmates are top notch players and amazing members of the community and I couldn’t think of anyone better to start with.
Without further delay here is the interview:
Name: Frank DeLoach
Club: We Slay Dragons (W.S.D. for short)
Home FLGS: Games Workshop Portola, Mission Viejo CA
Gaming Bio: Got into tabletop gaming in the 6th grade. Started with like 3rd edition 40k… back when Necro, Battlefleet, Gorkamorka… all that stuff was out. Took a long break through most of high school and some college. Then picked it back up about 6 years ago.. seriously only the past two.
Why Age of Sigmar?: Club mate of mine Ryan introduced me to it. It’s just so elegant & smooth game. Feels super modern. From the easy to learn, difficult to master aspect. All of the armies play super differently from each other.. really I think this is a great blueprint for people to rip off hahaha.
What is your favorite thing/experience?: Going to events.. period. I love playing at the club. But, just this past year I’ve made so many friends from around the country that I’m just always excited to see. It’s really the first time that I’ve instantly felt like it’s a nation wide family. Everyone is top shelf. Especially getting to know some of the dudes from GW HQ.
What army are you playing now?: Khorne Bloodbound! But I think technically I play Mortal Blades of Khorne hahaha that sounds silly. Blood Bound, Blood For The Blood God!
What are your future AoS plans?: Hmm… Right now, I’m deep into getting my Mortal Khorne finished for Broadside Bash at the end of the month… after that? Deamons!!! Just like, so many Deamons. I would like to do 2k of Khorne Deamons. Also been tossing a Nurgle idea around for a bit.. who knows, depends on how I’m feeling I guess!
Really the next army isn’t a big thought in my head right now, I want to get my Bloodbound dialed in… I’m going for a top ten overall finish at the ITC & Top Bloodbound this season.
