Hello everyone!

I'm Patrick AKA StabbyMcKill and I'll be joining you all here on the forums as the community team's fresh mea- I mean, Intern! 

 

Like a lot of you, I started playing the game a few years ago because of my lifelong passion for military history and armored fighting vehicles. I don't consider myself a competitive player by a longshot as I buy vehicles because of my historical interest more than anything else, that being said I am actually making an attempt to find my way out of tomatoville and get better at the game overall. 

 

Where are you from?
I am a military brat so I lived all over the world growing up, but Austin, Texas is home.

 

What’s your favorite tank?
Panther family, Ausf.D-G, Bergepanther, Jagdpanther and all the developmental prototypes. I have had a love affair with the vehicle since I was little that carried on into my WW2 reenacting, model building teen and adult years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Little me at the Imperial War Museum, London circa 1996 and the start of a lifelong love affair. 

 

 

Favorite video game?

Rough question to be honest. I've been essentially an exclusively PC gamer all my life and some of my all time favorites (irrespective of genre) include: Red Orchestra, Doom (all of them honestly), Close Combat series, Fallout, Mechwarrior (all of them), Wasteland, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Battlefield 2, Quake III Arena, Call of Duty 4, and more. 

 

 

Okay, so what are you playing right now?

I play a lot of Flight Sim X, X-plane and recently Flight Sim 2020 to stay fresh on instrument flying, procedures etc. as I am a private pilot (finishing my Instrument and going on to my commercial hopefully next year). For fun apart from WoT lately I've been playing a bunch of Rising Storm 2, Homeworld Remastered, and DCS.

  

Pineapple on Pizza?

Someone needs to make it illegal. Sorry not sorry.

 

Hobbies?
In addition to gaming, flying and military history related activities, I am an avid tabletop wargamer and miniatures painter (Warhammer 40k specifically), I have a passion for cars and bikes, collect firearms, play airsoft and am a burgeoning competitive shooter. Relatively an open book so feel free to ask away.

 

 

Platoon?
Any time! I am fairly alone in terms of people to play with apart from co-workers as most of my gaming group has moved on to other things, but I am always more than happy to play with you fine people.

Don't mind this guy.  ^^^^  He's not the same unless he gets to post a QB video.   :D

 

Welcome to the community, Stabby!   Hopefully that name isn't inspiration borne of a reading of this forum!  :ohmy:

Welcome to your new role on the WOT forums ...

 

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

 

You must be cautious

I've been playing and painting since '99 and currently play Black Templars, Death Guard, Iron Warriors and am building Flesh Tearers at the moment. I also run a small commission painting business on the side, mostly for my buddies in my gaming group.

Welcome to the forums
We've got fun 'n' games
What happened to the camo I bought
Stabby? they all look the same
We are the people who can't find
anything we need
But we got the money, honey
We got your disease

 

Bundle
Where the hell's my bundle?
Watch it bring you to your
Knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome, Stabby;

 

Cool that you are a pilot, I flew professionally for 42 years, beginning at 19, I was a part-time primary flight instructor during my University years... and 42 years later, I retired as a 747-300 Captain.

 

If you have any questions or just wanna talk planes, gimme a holler anytime.

Oh yes my friend.  No ouch.
