Aly was born in “The North “a long long long long time ago, he left school at the age of 17, before most other people were born.
He then started a career in Cartography, drawing most of the world as we know it today. Having run out of ink and paper Aly decided to take up a career in Dwarf chiselling, this having been a long time hobby he picked up while drawing Norway for the Forestry Commission.
Finding Games Workshop lying beside the river Trent in a place called Snottingham he joined them as a full time designer in 1893, his great age ensuring he was a senior designer from day one.
In his time here he has made everything at least twice.
Aly still works for Games Workshop and now spends most of his time working in the virtual world where he also listens to Death Metal, Country and Western and Jazz.
When in the physical world Aly is co-owner and co-designer for Great War Miniatures and the sole owner and designer of Shiny Toy Soldiers and Little Britons.
