Holiday Sale Preview: Valkeeri
November 25, 2013
Greetings Cadets! We are pleased to reveal some previews of the new Valkeeri miniatures that we’ll be releasing during our annual week-long Holiday Sale starting this Friday, November 29th. These new Valkeeri are overdue additions to our Retro Raygun range of heroic 28mm (32mm actual sized) retro sci-fi miniatures. The first preview shows our dynamic Valkeeri Rocket Sled model co-designed by Phil Beauchamp (sled model) and John Winter (pilot). The Valkeeri rocket sled hull is cast in resin with metal pilot and sled parts. It is supplied with an acrylic flight rod and base to complete the illusion of flying over your gaming table. The pilot model is multi-part and includes 3 right arm and 3 head options for added variation.
In addition, we are finally releasing the first two Valkeeri noble characters sculpted by John Winter. The Valkeeri Princess (left) is a one-piece casting that exudes sensuality and power befitting of a princess. The Valkeeri Empress (right) is a two-part casting and is in a regal pose with her royal scepter outstretched. Does it shoot a death ray or mind control beams for enslaving men? It’s up to you.
We will also have two additional models for sale as well. The Galacteer Engineer finally makes his debut for Retro Raygun. Add him to your Galacteer squads to repair machines or disable mega-computers. The Vardu Warrior from our Primal Dawn range is a giant flower creature attacking with dried plant weapon. Who says flowers are wimpy?
We hope you like these new releases and look forward to your orders during our Holiday Sale starting this Friday.
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.
