Giant Killer Robot






I am a sucker for Flash Gordon/ Dan Dare pulp SF stuff so I was instantly drawn to the Retro-Rayguns range from Hydra Miniatures available in the Uk from Wargames Emporium.

I tried a new technique with the base of my Giant Killer Robot. I covered it in Tamiya textured paint, pavement effect, and sparingly sprinkled synthetic snow and chalk chips on to give a moon surface effect.

The robotwas sprayed with Humbrol metallic brass which is exactly the same tone as the old Citadel Shining Gold. Very useful for touching up after washing with Citadel brown.

  2. Hi John, I was looking at Hydra minis yesterday. Must say I am VERY tempted. I hope you have more to show as It might just tip me over the edge.

    Nice job it looks good.

  3. That looks great! Very "Iron Giant". I have always liked this mini, but somehow never gotten around to procuring one
