Andy Smillie and Pete Foley from Games Workshop can often be seen on WarhammerTV or promoting the Games Workshop hobby and working to bring you the best versions of Warhammer 40,000, Age of Sigmar and other Games Workshop Games possible. Andy is also a Black Library writer.
Adam (or Atom Smasher if you watch his videos) is a life-long nerd, starting with D&D in the fifth grade and moving to tabletop wargaming in the early 1990s. He was the U.S. Correspondent for Beasts of War, covering conventions like Gen Con and Adepticon from 2010 to 2013, when he decided to leave and start his own channel. Through his combined loves of wargaming and video production/filmmaking, he’s grown his YouTube channel Tabletop Minions through well-produced quality tutorials and gaming advice. Adam is an iffy painter at best, but is pretty good at the basics and likes to explain those techniques to new painters in his videos.
Carl Tuttle is host of the highly successful Independent Characters podcast and has a long history of gaming and pod-casting to share.
Dave Nordquist of MiniWargaming fame is a long time hobby enthusiast, independent filmmaker and gamer. He brings a wealth of information on community driven hobby success as well as YouTube best practices and experience.
