Hello! We are Artel "W" Miniatures - group of artists, sculpters and designers, mostly from Russia, producing collectible resin miniatures for wargames, tabletops and RPGs. Our motto is: "Awesome miniatures for awesome people!". So - welcome, Awesome Ones, check what we made for you and your games and collections!
"Hydrophilia" is a tabletop skirmish wargame with miniatures in 32mm scale, that takes you and your opponent to a dystopian alternative future inspired by classic cyberpunk and action films of the 80s and 90s.
The game is a confrontation between two small squads . Each player has a set of fighters with various weapons and skills. Players perform all possible actions with one miniature and pass the turn to the opponent. The mechanics of individual figures vaguely resemble modern remakes of X-Com or Shadowrun computer games. All fighters have action points that can be spent on movement, shooting, and various tactics unique to each fighter. The player who successfully completes the mission wins the game .
The mechanics are easy to learn, but have a high replayability, thanks to the variety of missions and various combinations of soldiers in the squadron, which, in addition, can be changed by amplifiers, giving unusual properties. This allows you to discover something new in the game again and again.
One standard game lasts 1 - 2 hours depending on players’ experience.There can be two or four players, but in the second case, most missions have to be played 2 on 2.
Currently, three factions are available: the forces of the Government, the criminal Syndicate and the Nishimura Corporation.

We are the team of artists, designers and casters working together for the common goal which is to make our resin miniatures full of character and thoroughly detailed. Although the company was established just two and a half years ago, we have by now released quite a lot of minis and sets warmly accepted by the community from around the world. Artel “W” Miniatures has always been driven by the strongest intention to produce awesome miniatures for awesome people. We are striving to breathe life and personality into our creations to make them special - either in a game or on a collector’s shelf.
Starting this year, we also produce and distribute an English-language version of the Russian cyberpunk wargame “Hydrophilia” created by Alexei Kozlov. This tabletop skirmish wargame with miniatures in 32mm scale takes players to a dystopian alternative future inspired by classic cyberpunk and action films of the 80s and 90s.
