Robin Williams, 40K collector?
You've probably all seen the sad news relating to the passing of Robin Williams today. It might have been common knowledge to others but I hadn't realised that he had apparently been a collector of Warhammer 40K.

Prompted by this post by Wayland Games...

https://www.facebook.com/WaylandGamesLtd...0822257380

a quick search pulled up his Reddit AMA:

There are lots of other anecdotal stories relating to folk having encountered him at gaming stores.

Very sad to hear of his passing, he brought a lot of enjoyment to many.

Just the fact he named his daughter Zelda is a super-win Smile

It sort of reminds me about the story of the great Pagliacci.
