About Me

Resident math nerd, printing tech priest, and overall giant human. Kevin's been playing 40k since 2nd edition, back when everyone could bring a Vortex Grenade and you could murder an entire Imperial Guard army before Turn 1. He spends more time thinking about army composition and mathhammer than actually playing. He's a moderately good — but extremely lazy — painter who loves kitbashing and using 3D printing to make new bits. Kevin is the primary author of the “Hammer of Math” regular series on Goonhammer, which updates every Monday.
