Fantastic ! So happy you’re fitting well in the team and that what transpires through the videos is legit and not « acting ».

I’m down for more Q&As. I loooove behind the scenes stuff (I’m not the only one). I see great potential for a new « Insider » segment. A guided tour of the studio, a live « what ya doin’ ? » on a normal « not shooting » moment, etc. I think it would be popular.

I tried to copy/paste a link to the GI Joe wiki, but the mobile app won’t let me paste here. Jinx can be found on the GI Joe Wikipedia page. I doubt many people would remember her. I’m about as old as nerds get. I had the 80’s action figure. She was one of my favourites.

Hey Jinx! Thanks for the update, great to hear you’re living the dream. It’s been an epic few months!

Let us know how those tournaments went. I love hearing Spider talk about his 5 and 1 streaks to the top tables, but as someone else who just starting out in the competitive scene, it would awesome to to hear how a ‘mere mortal’ (for now) is experiencing them and how you prepare etc…

Keep all the great vids coming, the whole team is great, love hanging out with you peeps!

Jinx! Once again, congratulations. You’ve added a great new dynamic to the team and, as you said, I am sure you’re encouraging a bunch of new players to the game who may have felt otherwise excluded.

So glad you are enjoying the journey; looking forward to where you, and TT, go!!! 🔥👊🏼

You are a great addition. My son age 16 had always been interested And watched my games with friends but he never took the plunge till Chef joined and motivated him into Necrons. You have now motivated my daughter age 12. She never had seen women play. Now she has 500 points of Sisters and I’m filling for Bankruptcy with all these miniature armies. Thanks Jinx lol 😂
Welcome to the team though!

Thanks for the insightful video Katie! It’s no exaggeration to say that you had some pretty big shoes to fill and it’s a testament to you and the team how quickly you have got to grips with things and it feels like you have been around forever! You’ve been doing great in both playing and presenting and I am sure you will continue to improve as time goes on. It’s amazing to have a female presenter on the channel too – as you say it can only help to inspire others to take up the hobby and make it a… Read more »

I must say Katie, you really have won me over. You had big shoes to fill after Bone left, but I really enjoy watching your journey: to see how you develop your play, your interaction with the team and as an entertainer. Its interesting to get these players perspectives like this video, and Id think it would be interesting to see you host a few interviews with the group. Maybe get some insight in how the pandemic have impacted all of you and what the status quo for each and every one is. Anyway, keep up the good work! Btw,… Read more »

I’m really starting to enjoy this sit down and talking content from you guys. As much as I enjoy watching the tabletop games, sometimes i dont have enough time to sit down and watch a full 2 hours so these videos are a nice change of pace. Especially the codex breakdowns

I think Jinx (or Jynx) is a very cool nickname. You old school nerds out there might remember the name of Snake-Eye’s student in GI Joe. (Way back when 😆) Her code name was Jinx. I think she was the red ninja, if I remember right… Anyway, old man nerd tangent aside, it is a very cool nickname, held by very cool characters in the past, and I think it suits you just fine.
But that’s just one old nerd’s opinion.

You’ve been a wonderful addition and we’re so happy to have you!

As a side note, these videos are great. I love 40K and the games, but what makes me stick around and sub is the presenters and personalities. I don’t have anyone to play with in my little backwoods area in the USA so it’s fun to feel like I’m apart of the hobby still. Thanks guys! Cheers!

Thanks for this update Katie, you’ve fit in really well with the team. Since you joined my daughter, who is 7, only watches videos with you in, sometimes Beard, but she has shown more interest since you joined. I never have made her take an interest in the hobby, but I talk to her about it when she shows an interest, since you joined she now wants her own army and is currently slowly learning how to paint. Thank you for being yourself and being that opening up of another possible interest for a little girl in a world where… Read more »

Awesome job Katie! Can certainly testify to how difficult it is to play a game and be on camera etc. Hopefully meet you next time I’m up!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Your comment about feeling at home in the 40k community really resonated with me, as someone who can struggle a bit with social anxiety. The 40k scene is the most welcoming, lovely place.

I think you’re doing a great job! You fit in seamlessly with the others. You’re “hello friends” in the intro, is such an inviting way to get the episode started. Happy you’re part of the team.

Hey, blink twice if Spider is forcing you to say all those nice things… we’ll send help!
Love the video, and as I said in the past I think you are doing an awesome job and you are a perfect fit for the team. Looking forward to the future of TTT, I’m sure it will be great!

awesome addition to team – absolute win all round – fab use of the ‘Rob Sob’ – but if Chef doesnt get a ‘fwenderino’ tee-stirt as a secret santa present i will cancel my subscription (i obviously won’t – but i feel it’s that important) – thankyou for your insight and I am so glad you can see the positive impacts you’re having just by being you! keep up the fantastic work and I look forward to seeing what is to come from you and the team (although i have to ask if you were employed in time to play… Read more »

My fingers were crossed that whoever got the role would be someone like Jinx who really embodies the future (or at least the future I want!) of the hobby. Really showing that balance of playing competitively and well, but also still having fun in the process, not to mention allowing women and girls to feel represented in the hobby. And it is endlessly funny seeing Jinx get in Beard’s head every single game.

This is such a cool little backstage video, thanks Katie / Jinx. At the end of the day 40k is really just a game, but as a fan of the hobby and tabletop tactics it’s great to get more of a serious and personal update like this. Especially cool to hear how people have been reaching out to you about feeling inspired to take part in the hobby, I hope warhammer only continues to grow in that direction.
