|Apollo, Jenny Quantum, Midnighter|
Heroclix figures are usually around 3cm in height, making them between 1/43 and 1/45 scale (also known as model railroad scale). The game that these pieces are used in is a grid-based board game - there are hundreds of game pieces available from dozens of different franchises. While I'm not a board game person, the variety of character figures that are available means that I have picked up several none-the-less.
The three figures that I'm looking at today are Midnighter, Apollo and Jenny Quantum in their Authority/Wildstorm-era incarnations. In those days this trio was a family - Midnighter and Apollo were de-aged with DC's new 52 revamp (the characters are now in their early 20s), so obviously now they're no longer a middle-aged married couple with a teenage daughter. Jenny, being the spirit of the 21st century, had to keep her same-as-the-century age, although her character was changed quite a bit as well). Of course all of that means that I'm hopefully that they'll release new versions of these guys as well!
