I am Hu Jin Tau. Well, that's my pen name, my name is Will Lewis and I have just assumed the reigns of responsibility for the Warhammer Tau blog. But in no way does that mean I "own" it.
Responsibility and ownership are two very different things. This blog is owned by the team that publishes articles on it and to the members who tune in to read those articles. I am simply responsible for making sure it all runs as smoothly as possible and that the lights stay on. Oh, and I take the blame when something breaks.
We are Tau, but who am I?
I am an avid Tau player, but I also play Black Templars, Vanilla Space Marines (which look very much like my Templars), Eldar, Lizardmen, and fun, unsanctioned skirmish games with Kroot. I've even started a Tyranids army, but I'm pacing myself on that because all my "play money" right now is ear-marked for my beloved Tau and Kroot. And from the looks of things, with a new codex, a new supplement, and another two books on the way, I'm not going to have any extra money for Tyranids for a while. After all, my kids still need to eat, and plastic sprue casserole tastes like crap.
My non-GW armies include Protectorate of Menoth (Warmachine), the Directorate (Firestorm Armada), and Dragon Lords (Uncharted Seas). I am not a magic or card games player, but I am starting to get a jones for the Game of Thrones LCG. I also like board games (Relic, Talisman, Descent, Carcassonne, Settlers, and Advanced Civ, among others). But I'm not much for video games --that is until the new Space Hulk game comes out.
I am a school teacher by day, algebra, applied technology, graphic design and computer applications. And I help out in my local game store (LGS) every chance I get. My LGS is Discordia Games in Bremerton, Washington, (near Seattle) and our store and customer base totally rock. Pop in and see for yourself some time.
I read a lot, couple of hours per day, if I can. I follow Naftka, BoLS, 3++ is the New Black, and several other blogs, and I feel compelled to comment on some of those blogs fairly often. I also read a lot on Advanced Tau Tactica, Kompletely Kroot, and several other Tau-oriented websites. My moniker and avatar (above) are the same on all of the blogs on which I participate, so you will all know me when you see my posts. I developed it in Photoshop so it is relatively unique.
So that's what I'm bringing to the mix. I hope the other Warhammer Tau authors will drop biographies when they get a chance. To our founder, Adam, and to our previous manager, David, fair winds and following seas, mates! We'll try to keep 'er right.
Please stay tuned, we have some great articles in the queue, and I think you're going to enjoy reading them.

About Warhammer Tau
Warhammer Tau is a group of wargamers who feel that they have a little something different to offer other Tau Empire, Kroot, and allied players... even if it's just a starting point for discussion! Our goal is to produce at least one article per week to inform and encourage the Tau and Warhammer gamer community. For the Greater Good, of course!
