ABOUT ICARUS GAMES

Greetings, my name is Anto, and I run Icarus Games. 

I've always loved playing tabletop games. I was 11 when I was first given my first tabletop miniatures, and I've loved everything to do with the hobby ever since. 

 

Eventually, my love of miniatures became a business, and Icarus was born. We provide design services for other companies in the industry, including concept art, 3D miniature sculpting, and rules writing/consultation. 

 

We've worked with over a dozen companies to make more than a hundred miniatures since we started. 

Storytelling has always been my other passion, so it was inevitable that eventually I would start playing Dungeons and Dragons

I played off and on throughout school and university, though our campaigns never lasting more than a few sessions before fizzling out. 

So eventually I decided the only way I was going to get the long-time game I'd always wanted was to step into the Dungeon Master role. 

Now I make videos every week to help other people be better dungeon masters and game masters and have more fun with their friends. 

Q&A

What were your first miniatures? 

 

I started with the Lord of the Rings: Battle Games in Middle Earth magazine. I collected LotR minis for a couple of years before I moved onto Warhammer 40,000

 

What armies do you collect/play now? 

 

For Warhammer: Age of Sigmar I have a Nighthaunt force, and for 40k I have had many armies over the years but always end up coming back to the Space Marines, specifically the Imperial Fists. 

 

Who was your first D&D character? 

 f

I played Ser Barnston Weatherby III, a Fighter/Knight. He formed a tight bond with a tiefling named Gregory. Gregory would go on to be a PC in my campaign, and Barney became an NPC. 

 

What edition of D&D do you run? 

I run Pathfinder RPG. I cut my teeth on 3.5, played in several short-lived campaigns, and then when I decided to DM I picked up PF. I've played several other systems, but always end up coming back to PF because I love its mechanical depth. 

What is your favourite biscuit? 

Chocolate Hobnob, no contest.
