The Big Picture: Looking back at the 2014 Spanish Nationals

 Metagame or “meta” for short is one of those words you will probably encounter while playing any game with a competitive component to it. It’s also a word that has several meanings within any game. In most cases it refers to a strong team or strategy on either a local, national, or global level.

Discussing the meta is often a mechanism to either stagnate or stimulate growth in a community. In some cases people look at event results and take them as the absolute final judgment of what teams or strategies are good or bad, which can stifle creativity. At Lock Check we believe that while some teams are powerful, nothing is unbeatable against solid play and critical thinking and with that we often find ourselves experimenting with more unorthodox pairings. We’re not Hipsters, we’re Pioneers! With that being said I’d like to look at the Spanish National championships that have happened recently.

Make Some Dark Hero Summons

I love the figures from the Dark Heroes expansion.  So much so that I couldn’t wait to play them with their summoned units, so I had to make my own.  First I’ll start with the easier sculpts and move on to the more advanced forms.

Krosmaster Storage

Storage.  While not a complete sentence is a complete and complex idea that can be a major factor in our favorite game du jour: Krosmaster.  There are many things that need to be considered when trying to store all of these wonderfully painted and produced miniatures, not the least of which include: price, mobility, portability, dimensions of the models, and model safety.  With this, my debut post, I would like to talk about what I went through and, more importantly, what came out of my own deliberations on the subject.
