    Seeing as Hasbro aren't being very forthcoming with the identity of the third Rainmaker Seeker i thought i would
    come up with one of my own.

    Bio
    Another product of Shockwaves twisted experiments & able to control one of earths greatest resources Hydrostorm is a crazed cackling force of devastation.


    Abilitys
    Hydrostorm is able to create blasts of extreme high pressure water Called "Hydroblasts" crushing any who dare to cross his path.
    Able to fire missiles charged with bursts of 20,000 volts of electrical energy wich combined with his "Hydroblasts" can cause utter devastation to friend and foe alike.
    In jet mode subject has a top speed of mach 2 whilst in the air and 100mph whilst underwater.


    Weaknesses
    Subject is barely rational at the best of times making him a brutal but unfocused opponent



    Hydrostorm was painted with Games workshop Acrylics (mainly Hawk turquoise & fortress grey)
    I gave the missiles a sharper point by well,er putting them in a pencil sharpener.

    This is fantastic. I love random made up background seekers. The paint work in both modes is top-notch, and the camo pattern completes it. Great character too. Awesome job.

    This guy is awesome. Paint is superb, as always, but the bio sets him off nicely. Thanks for the pencil sharpner idea, not sure that it'll still pass the federal toy regulations though :thumb 

    I love the arctic camo look

    I really like the camo design on Hydrostorm! It reminds me of the Israeli forces sky camo they used on their Mirages in the eighties! Superb job!:thumbs2:
