Hydra Miniatures is going to be releasing a new ruleset called Retro Raygun for their Sci-Fi Hydra Miniatures line.
Hydra Miniatures is pleased to announce that we are entering the editing and layout phase for our upcoming rules, Retro Raygun: Action Adventure in the Atomic Age. These rules are the second system to take place in Hydra Miniatures’ “Retroverse,” and feature the same background and characters as our acclaimed War Rocket rules.
Like War Rocket, the Retro Raygun system is chartless, has no record keeping and minimal token usage to keep the table from getting cluttered. Retro Raygun features alternating unit activation to keep both players involved in the action. In order to capture the cinematic feel of the pulp sci-fi era, all action is elegantly resolved by a special opposed dice mechanic known as the Raygun Roll-off.
Retro Raygun will feature complete force lists for the Galacteers, Robot Legion and the Valkeeri. In fact, our ranges for these three factions will be completed in time for the release of the rules, so fans who collect our Retro Raygun miniatures can start playing right away.
The rules will also feature a brief history of the “Retroverse,” eight special objective-based scenarios, and a Cosmic Bestiary so you can include alien creatures like the Aquaclops and the Slishians in your games. The full-color rulebook will be released in August 2014, and the retail price is yet to be determined.
