About Hydra Miniatures

Our Philosophy

Hydra Miniatures is the manufacturer of unique fantasy and science fiction miniatures. Our business model is governed by three guiding principles: create unique ranges of miniatures, design figures that are easy for gamers to assemble and paint, and offer top-notch customer service and communication.

Sounds good. But let’s tell it like it is.

We feel the market is flooded with Tolkienesque fantasy miniatures—orcs, dwarves, and elves. The same goes for sci-fi bodybuilder commandoes in power armor fighting H.R. Giger-inspired xenomorphs.

Frankly, we’re sick of it. And who needs yet another miniatures company creating the same thing you’ve seen a hundred times?

Our mission is to break away from these clichés and create never before seen figures that no one else is doing. Figures that fire your imagination and inspire you to new gaming possibilities.

Next – form, fit and finish. So many figures are a pain to assemble and paint. Our miniatures are designed with the gamer in mind. Castings are quick to assemble and appropriately detailed to make them easy to paint. You get your figures on the table quickly so you can spend more time gaming.

Finally, we believe that communication is essential. So we’ve set a very high standard of customer service for ourselves. We hope to avoid mistakes through good communication and high standards of quality. However, if we make a mistake, we pledge to correct it as soon as possible—no hassle, no fuss! And hopefully website features like downloadable catalogues with actual-sized photos will help gamers make informed decisions about our products and eliminate some of the typical errors other miniatures manufacturers have encountered.

In short, we’re going to be the absolute best at what we do. And your experience with Hydra Miniatures will keep you coming back for more.
