Pulp City Dr Mercury

After playing my first game of Pulp City a few weeks back I got spurred on to starting up my first few heroes to game with. Sorting through what figures I have in my collection I have seem to have a fair few members from the Heavy Metal faction.

Dr Mercury, Iron Train, Lady Cyburn and Nuclear Jones to name them. I have no idea how well they would work together yet as the new cards haven't been released. I will probably get a few more characters to flesh out the group and give me some more playing options. I think Nuclear Jones shall be next on the list to be painted.

I hadn't really browsed the Pulp City site much apart from the store. But I was searching for some pics the other day for reference material and there is a wealth of awesome background for the characters and denizens of Pulp City Dr Mercury's background is pretty awesome in itself and it inspired me to paint him up first. Click Me to Read More.. If you interested in any of the characters or faction have a click of the tags on the site there are some fantastic tales.

  1. Whilst trying hard not to sound like a broken record, Simon, that is a cracking paint-job and really does look like the model is made out of flowing mercury. Any chance you can let a humble painting Padawan know how you created that effect please?

    1. Thanks very much! Quite simple really. I just Primed with Army Painter chainmail. Washed all over with Army Painter blue tone. Left it to dry then highlighted/layered GW mithril silver (old hex pots). After that I just add a bit of the blue tone in the creases on the muscles and bits where I though should be shaded a bit more. The single Eye was a bit of an experiment which i'm leaving for now.

    2. Its probably coming across as shinier than it is in the pics as it being a bright metal its reflecting a bit but I suppose thats the point :)

  2. I thought the same as Blaxkleric - mercury or better sounding Quick Silver. The pose and all.

    1. I think a lot of the range are what you could call 'inspired' by a lot of popular comic heroes. :)

    1. Thanks Bryan I want the blue to make him seem more electonic rather than just washing with a black ink if you know what I mean.

  12. While I recognise that you have done a very good job of painting the figure I can offer no help about superheroes, as I know nothing about them.
