Is it Ant-Man?... Is it Giant-Man?... NO!.. It's CAPTAIN HADRON!!!
As I take a quick break from frantically paint minis and scenery for PAW 2012 in just 19 days I wanted to do a quick post about one of my favourite characters in Pulp City.
(click pics for larger views)
Hadron is a Lvl 2 Hero Supreme. He is also a key member of the cities most heroic team, Heavy Metal.
With the powers of molecular control, Hadron can shrink down to almost insect size or grow as tall as a tower block. Although he still doesn't have complete mastery of his skills.
At a push he can also control the size and density of allies and enemies alike.
A nice in game factor of this model is 3 different rules cards. 1 for each size.
Not matter what the situation, Hadron will have something that can help.
If you would like to see his full rules then head over to the Pulp City Forums

The standard 32mm scale size model is stunning. Created by the team of Vicente, James Van Schaik and Vesa.
On a 30mm base, he is full of detail and has a very 'different' pose to most other models out there which makes it stand out even more.
But you cant look a Captain Hadron without Mini Hadron and Giant Hadron as well.

The first 10mm model I have ever tried to build and paint wasn't half as scary as I had imagined. A very clean copy with great detail made the job alot easier than I thought.
Now its time for the big guy.

Time for the shot you have been waiting for. (and the main reason I wanted to write this post)
My own copies of all 3 models side by side.
Now you can really see the difference between them. I have based all 3 on the same base toppers from Fenris Games. Well, Giant Hadron has the same topper in the centre of his base anyway.
When I found out about this Supreme I knew there was only going to be 1 colour scheme for me to use. Red, Blue and Silver. Inspired by Marvels Hank Pym. Otherwise known as Ant-Man and Giant-Man.
I will show you how that works out very soon.
Looking back at the start of this post, I mention I have been painting.
Yes I know some of you may be shocked and some may not believe me at all but its true!
See - \/ \/ \/ \/ \/ The current state of the painting table. Can you recognise any famous colour schemes?
That's long enough without a brush in hand.
