Welcome to Hydra Miniatures!
Paint Racks Back in Stock
February 24, 2013
Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to organize your hobby area. Hydra Miniatures has received a restock order of the MDF paint racks from German manufacturer MiniaturicuM. These paint racks are precision cut using a CNC mill so there is no unpleasant burnt wood odor associated with laser-cut products. These paint racks are supplied unassembled, but are light and durable once assembled with wood glue. There are two types of racks available to choose from:
72 Bottle Standard Paint Pack
Standard paint racks can be used to store paint bottles from manufacturers such as Games Workshop, Foundry, Privateer, Press, and Iron Wind Metals (Partha Paint.) Each row is designed to hold 12 flip-top bottles or 10 of the larger GW/Citadel paint bottles.
40 Bottle Dripper Paint Pack
Dripper paint racks are used to store dripper bottles from manufacturers such as Vallejo, Reaper, or Andrea. Each row is designed to hold 10 dripper bottles right-side up or upside down.
Hydra Miniatures is the exclusive North American importer of these paint racks. Since the paint racks are heavy, they are expensive to ship. International customers are encouraged to order directly from MiniaturicuM. You can purchase the paint racks directly from the Hydra Miniatures online store.

New Product Spotlight: Xeno 15
Novmber 25, 2012
For the last few months, the staff at Hydra HQ has been infected with the 15mm sci-fi bug. While there are many exciting 15mm sci-fi manufacturers, we’ve decided to put our own spin on the genre with a comprehensive range of aliens—Xeno 15.
The first releases were sculpted by one of our favorite sculptors: Ben Siens, the “Monster Master.” The Akarr are a race of humanoid aliens who were formerly enslaved. After overthrowing their masters, they are now raid human settlements to bring human slaves to their homeworld. Their hunting parties are lead by the largest of their kind--the Akarr overlords.
The warriors of the Akarr are arranged into two types: Stalker squads (long range weaponry) and Razor squads (close combat). Heavy firepower is provided by Inferno squads equipped with particle cannons and heavy meson beamers.
You can see the whole range here. We hope you enjoy our new Akarr models and we are working on vehicles to support the range. We have two other alien races in pre-production and will be assigning these projects to sculptors soon. Stay tuned for more information about Xeno 15.
