Hydra has released their new Empire of Marduk "Princess Azeemah", which I had painted for them a couple of months ago. Fun mini to paint!

You always seem to nail these minis with your awesome style!

She's a beauty!  :-*

So much to love in this thread.... but the Imperial figures, especial the Princess are sublime.

Thanks all :)

The Hydra Valkeeri were miniatures I purchased for no reason in particular, other than they looked great and would be fun to paint. Here I am now with dozens of Hydra Retro Raygun miniatures and three factions (still need to paint some robots)!

Bummer about the limited availability in Europe. I can mention it to the guy who runs Hydra, for what its worth.

Looking forward to seeing your robots, they're a great looking set of figures (and incidentally the ones I'd like to get). If you do happen to get a chance to mention it, you never know!
Cheers

It has been a while, but Hydra sent me some of their upcoming releases for painting... Belus, High Magus of Marduk and some Dragonmen, all for the Imperial Faction of the Retro Raygun game.





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

That is a cool looking force you got there. Loving the Retro Raygun minis and your paint jobs!

Always loved the Retro Raygun idea and aesthetic.  Not many good figure lines out there, but Hydra keeps knocking it out of the park.  Especially when coupled with your awesome paint work.

Great job all the way through this thread!

Wonderful work Doctor. I have to say, the Belus figure with that staff and the colours you have chosen for him makes me want to pick him up for my Haradrim.

Thanks everyone :)

Great painting, especially on the “Treens”.

Not going to lie, I hadn't heard of Treens before :)
I'll have to do more digging into that franchise!

Wonderful work Doctor. I have to say, the Belus figure with that staff and the colours you have chosen for him makes me want to pick him up for my Haradrim.

As I was working on that guy I was thinking in terms of 40K, either a Navigator or Astropath, or some sort of elementalist in fantasy. Hadn't even considered LotR but I can even see that. Hydra minis run a bit tall fyi!
