Strong arm helps with ttm. so trees are the most reliable "flingers" in the game from start.

I missed it the first time... Nice to get an inside view of what happened there...

ditto, great read and many people do not realise the personal sacrifice that we can take for granted here, the man should be commended for all his efforts Smile

I loved his interview on 3 die block, and I loved his interview for the GLN. He certainly has been living interestingly, and loves the hobby so much he even created Impact!

Technically Tom didn't create Impact. Wink Though it was close Smile

Impact! basically started when Ewan McKerragher sculpted a figure for use with his personal Norse team as a Snow Troll, and posted it on TalkBloodBowl. Such was the quality of the sculpt and a lot of people expressed an interest for Ewan to get the figure cast so I remember speaking to him on MSN at the time and he decided to get a group of guys together to start a company, Tom joined in very shortly after (and I almost ruined it by my unique Irish humour, but we soon got back on the right foot!)

I remember some of the early proposed names (Impact was the first name to be proposed!) but Moonshine Minis, Unity, Bootleg and even Tinpot minis was bandied about! Razz

Most of the people who started up Impact! (Valen, Evil_Git, Ewan, TiMuN) have all left and its now Ramsay McPherson (Norse) who is the sole original member along with Tom, and they recently got a new guy Chris Adkerson (mrinprophet) who I am painting some stuff up for and is a nice guy!
