I finished up a few Hydra Miniatures 'Retro Raygun' figures today, and because there will be some more figures from this genre coming down the pipe in the foreseeable future, I figured I'd better go ahead and make an 'ongoing thread' in the popular LAF manner.

First up is the Empress Xenovia and her Alpha Panther:



Along with some Zenithians. Hydra only has three of this faction available right now. They were pretty fun to paint.





Plus a couple images from a ways back, that I don't recall posting here on LAF:





Next up will be some robots (after a bit of Darkest Africa, in a different thread of course Wink )

Beautiful! I'm a sucker for that retro sci-fi rayguns and rocket ships vibe. The first pic has had me heading off to track down the Alpha Panther. I need that model Wink

Stunning and inspirational!

I am taken by the scenery you've used. I think the glass structures are an absolutely smashing idea.

Crikies, Matt, those are awesome!

I went to Hydra's site, and see he had the good sense to put your images up right away.

I never noticed the 'panther' before; impressive fig made wonderful by your brush, of course, but does add greatly to the terror of the cruel 'ladies.'
