Lock & Load Closing Ceremonies

Lock & Load year two is in the books, and it was a great show for staff and attendee alike. During the closing ceremonies awards and trophies were given to tournament winners and event winners and a heartfelt thanks was expressed to all those who made this incredible weekend possible. Naturally we want to acknowledge the amazing work of our own event manager Jason Martin and the workhorse that is our Quartermaster, Will Hungerford. We had dozens of committed Press Gangers donating their own time to help keep this event moving, and we can’t thank them enough. They’re fantastic! And finally, an EPIC thank you goes to the hundreds of WARMACHINE and HORDES players who traveled to Seattle from all over the world to spend the weekend playing, painting, and socializing over the games. We couldn’t ask for more excited and dedicated players! We look forward to seeing you next year!
