Judge Dredd - The Villains

As mentioned in my last post, I needed to make a start on some of the villains of Mega City One. So first up is Nero Narcos. A lovely model, already ordered some robots to back him up.

Next up is the assassin Orlock. The handy thing with this guy is he can work with Nero above. I tried to keep the look of a Sov agent.

The next figure doesn't really need an introduction, Mean Angel. Look forward to trying him out in a game.

It is a shame that Warlord do not yet produce the rest of the Angel gang. I've had a look on Ebay for the old Mongoose and Citadel sculpts and they seem rather pricey.

The last of the bunch is an old Citadel figure - Sleazy rider. The original bike has long since been lost. I did some modifications on an old Ork attack bike. I took off the guns and raised the seat. I'll be able to use him as either a block ganger or mutie on a bike.

The last model I completed is a car for my Citi Def. Picked this up from Annecotis workshop. Will definitely pick up a few more.

With the table set up I'm going to have my first run through of the game to get the hang of the mechanics.  I'll post some  pictures of the game later.

Street Judges

This is the latest set I picked up from Warlord games. 5 additional Judges with some optional weapons. With these I only really need to add Judge Anderson.

I've got them here positioned in from of a couple of fast food joints I picked up from TTcombat. I also decided to take a group photo of my Judges for Sector 47. Just need a Sector house for them.

For some extra scenic pieces for my games I picked up some vehicles from Anecottis Workshop. They were originally released for Infinity, but will fit in. I picked up a pack each of some single seater cars. There is also a larger model I need to finish for the Citi-Def.

I added a Judge to one if the photos for a scale comparison.

Now that I have plenty of the good guys,  I need to make a start on some of the villains.

Judge Dredd

Well I just had to do the man himself. Judge Dredd, he comes both on foot and mounted on a lawmaster. The lawmaster is much bigger than that of the cadet, a very nice model. I've also kept the rider seperate for ease of use during games. Not sure if I will use him as Dredd in all games, as can just use him as a standard street judge.

I also picked up the Street Judges boxed set. It will provide an additional 5 judges for Sector 47.

As an aside I also completed the 3 figures from the Block Ganger reinforcements. These are metal figures instead of the plastic/resin of others in the range.

I've got a couple of MDF terrain pieces to finish off while I am waiting for an order for more figures.

Judge Dredd - Citi Def

Painting has continued with my latest project. This time it's the citizens who form the Citi Def units to protect their Blocks. The first set is the basic 6 troopers. I went for a Blue/White uniform.

I do like most of the poses, quite dynamic but still a little cartoonish in keeping with the range. To bulk them out I also picked up the Re-inforcement set. This provides an extra trooper, sniper and heavy weapon trooper.

Pretty happy with how the camo turned out on the snipers cloak. So that's 9 figures for my Citi Def. Just need to think of a suitable Block name.

So now I need to wait for my next delivery of figures. I picked up some reinforcements for my Block gangers and the Judge Dredd model. In the meantime I have a MDF shop and some eateries to build for the tabletop.

New Project - Judge Dredd

After completing my ww2 Germans, I fancied a change in direction. Looking around I picked up the Judge Dredd Starter set from Warlord Games.  Also got a Cadet with Lawmaster bike. I was always a fan of the 2000AD comics as a child.

The figures are in a softish resin, but clean up well. So after a couple of days work they are nearly done.  Just need to sort out how I want to do the bases.

First up the judges. The starter set comes with a street judge and a rookie.

Of course I'll have to get Judges Dredd and Anderson to fill out the ranks. There is also a set of Street judges as well.

Next up is the perps. You get 8 figures with a mix of weapons.

There is an expansion set for these to provide an additional 3 gang members. I may even dig out some of my old Necromunda figures as extra gangers.

I've also picked up the 2 expansion sets for the Citi Def to keep me busy over the next few days. I also have an order in for some terrain for the table. Just not sure when I'll actually get a game in.

WW2 Germans completed

Feeling rather chuffed with myself as I've managed to complete my first project of the year. Not bad considering I only started in February after the Vapnartak show in York.

The final addition was an AT gun to add a bit of punch. It also helps to fill out the support options and provides some flexibility.

There is an additional infantryman added to the crew as the gun only came with 3 crew, but you need 5 for Chain of Command.

After this I decided to add a few more extras for my games. First was 3 Jump off Points which are integral to the game. These were made from spares in my bits box.

I also had an old Lledo truck left over from my VBCW collection. This got a quick makeover along with 3 haystacks I got from Warbases.

So what next! I've got 2 more haystacks to do and wouldn't mind an additional Panzerschrek team. Now just got to wait for my new project to arrive.

WW2 Germans nearing completion

I've made a few more additions to my winter Germans for Chain of Command. First up is an extra Junior leader and 4 more riflemmen. All plastics by Warlord games.

Next up was another support option, the Stug III G. This was a plastic kit from Warlord. I went for a white washed look to fit in with the rest of the army.

All I have left to complete is an anti tank gun with crew and 3 jump off points. Not bad for 2 months work.

I also added a couple of extra terrain pieces for the table. An animal pen and barricade.

I've now got to decide on opponents. The club seem to have most of the allies covered. No one has the Rusdians yet and they would suit a winter setting. Time to make some plans.
