Two Games Workshop games? Well GW typified my teenage gaming preferences.
Jonathan 'Fuzz' Martin- Fuzz was my school friend and regular gaming buddy through my teens, we'd game together most weekends (and most days during school holidays), playing most of the games GW sold at that time. He introduced me to Space Hulk and in my first game I remember rolling eight '1's and pretty much rage quitting. We never played it again, and during the summer after his first year at uni I had a phone call to say he'd commited suicide. I'd love to play another game with you good buddy, and this time you can be the Marines.
Horatio Hornblower (if fictional falls under the "otherwise" category), otherwise Horatio Nelson, and preferably one against the other. They could teach me a lot that would be useful in this game, I am certain.
