I am an avid tabletop wargamer on the cusp of 30 living in Chicago. Although my gaming group is small, I try to get in as many games as I can and have experience dating back to some time around 1992. My current interests include Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy, Battletech, and Shadowrun. In the past I have also played Warmachine, D&D, and a whole host of other pen and paper roleplaying games. I am currently a short while away from being considered part of a common law marriage and am pursuing an MBA while funemployed. In addition to being a huge nerd, I play drums in several bands and boast a CD/Record collection that dwarfs some record stores.
Enough about me, though. What is Dick Move? A tough question indeed. Many months ago I had a dream. I wanted to set out and create a site where I can let members of the tabletop wargaming community with an online presence know just how fucking stupid they can be. Fan inspired units and rules, flawed tactical advice, narrow-mindedness, a lack of writing skills, and so on are all fair game for my derision. The creation of this blog brings my dream to fruition and gives me a much needed vehicle to say what I can’t say elsewhere. Here, I can speak the opinions I have in the way I want and in a manner that would likely get me banned from other sites.
I will not now, nor likely ever, present myself as a master of the gaming arts. To do so would be pretentious. My strategies are not always sound. My lists often lack development. I cannot paint at the Golden Demon Level. I often end games drunk enough to nearly damage my carefully painted miniatures. In short, I have all of the flaws of most human beings and recognize that I will never be perfect.
What I can promise, however, is that I will bring some of the worst that the wargaming community has to offer into the light, and will do so in the least constructive way possible. With that, I present “Dick Move” and a hope to entertain and enlighten you for some time to come.
