Dr. Mathias's Into Space! Retro Sci Fi thread
« on: July 14, 2016, 01:14:15 AM »
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 ;) )

a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

That looks brilliant!  The aliens look just the bad guy from Major Matt Mason!  One of my fave childhood toys!

Beautiful colours - the transitions on that panther; sublime.

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 ;)

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.'
