Bring On The Big Guys!
Powerhouses are the 'big guys' of the Supreme world. Within the new rules they have a pretty much unparalleled capacity to lay the smack down on whatever gets in their way.
Powerhouses are now generally to be mounted on 50mm bases; players retain the option to keep them on 40mm bases, but base size has added meaning in Pulp City now. However, those 50mm bases can provide a real advantage as in the new system the Opposed Roll has been replaced by the Action Roll.
However I recently decided i needed to make the upgrade permanent, so I have painted up a set of new bases with which I plan to remount the 3 50mm base Powerhouses (Six Feet Under; Father Oak; and Apebot); Giant Hadron is a special case who at 80mm base is the 'big guy of big guys'.
Now I am just hoping that the good old super glue bond is not too good; why is it whenever you want something to be loose with super glue it is stuck tighter than anything, while models you want to last fall apart with a mere sideways glance?
