Heroclix Borderlands

Stuck between Casual play and Meta play and not really home in either. This is a podcast about those wandering souls who find a home in neither. How can we survive and thrive in this game we love. I open my journey to share with you.

Episode 004 - Fashion Week (What is your style?)

This week I talk about the evolution or overtweaking of my WKO team. My thought process on what is effective on the team and what i am just bad at playing. Also, I discuss the styles of play (fashions) that can be found in heroclix. Find out which fad is in vogue now (according to me) and what could change soon. Finally, I share my awesome (maybe not) Riptide build. A new figure to design for next week is presented. lostinclix@gmail.com or ColossusTN on HCrealms.com
