Welcome to Hydra Miniatures-The Leader in Retro Sci-Fi




Hydra Releases Three Special Edition Miniatures
April 11, 2016

Hydra HQ has been swamped by Real-Life, but we are finally digging out. We are pleased to release three miniatures in the "Special Editions" section of the Hydra Miniatures online store. Although we no longer carry Fantastic Worlds rulebooks, we continually get e-mails about Buster Gordy and Xurr the Exalted. We decided to re-release them along with our convention exclusive Commander Mudpie, a figure of Hydra game designer John Douma wearing his Galacteer cosplay outfit from Gen Con.

In other news, Hydra is working on new 32mm forces for Retro Raygun, designing a new fleet (or two) for War Rocket, and working on Atomic Tank, a game of land battles set in Hydra Miniatures' Retroverse. The first public demonstrations of Atomic Tank will be held at Gen Con 2016.

Again, we'd like to thank all our fans for their support and we hope you enjoy these re-released figures.


New Products: Zenithian Troopers and Alpha Panther
November 25, 2015

Greetings, cadets! We are excited to release our first codes for the Zenithians—the Saucermen from the Seventh Dimension.  These extradimensional clone troopers first appeared in War Rocket, but are now available as 32mm figures for our Retro Raygun game.

In addition, the Valkeeri leadership receives much needed support in the form of the Alpha Panther.  Considerably larger that a standard Stygian Panther, this alien predator is the vicious protector of Empress Xenovia.  This large, imposing miniature measures 62mm from head to tail.

Here is a link to our new releases:

New Product Spotlight: Valkeeri Controllers and Stygian Panthers
Novmber 28, 2014

Valkeeri Controllers

Valkeeri Controller AValkeeri Controller B

We are pleased to introduce the Valkeeri Controllers and the Stygian Panthers. Centuries of technological and psychic development have allowed the Valkeeri to master amazing mind control. These powers enable the Valkeeri to effectively deploy great beasts and even mind-controlled human slaves in fierce combat. The favored creatures of the Valkeeri Controllers are the speedy, sleek alien panthers known as the Stygian Panthers. These cat-like creatures are the size of an earth panther but have unusual features that denote their alien origin. The Stygian Panthers originate from the deadly jungle world of Stygia VI

The Valkeeri Contrllers were scculpted by John Winter and consist of two variants armed with stun whips and Valkeeri raygun pistols. The Stygian Panthers were sculpted by the talented Ebob. All of these new releases are available in the Valkeeri section of our online store.
