Re: Traveller: Learning Skills/Character development

Just another very vaguely related question about skill development/character generation: is there a maximum level to which skills can be raised? Reason I ask is that I recently rolled up a Judge for the Judge Dress RPG who, through a freak series of coincidences ended up with Law: 6. Is this usual? ...

Re: Judge DeMarco & Psi-Judge Anderson - Shipping Next Week!

Not really, I was always under the impression that that was going to be the case. It doesn't bother me, so long as I get my stuff :D Exactly. Long as my miniatures arrive eventually I don't need Mongoose to hold my hand, stroke my hair and tell me I'm special in the meantime. And I'm really not fus...

Re: Viable New Factions for future boxsets...

I'd like to second the mobsters thing, especially as they're a pretty common enemy for Judges in the roleplaying game.

Re: So what did you think of Dredd?

I wouldn't write it off just yet; some films get a new lease of life on DVD (especially ones with favourable critical reaction and, most crucially, strong word of mouth). A lot of people wait til DVD with an unknown (to them) quantity : )

Re: Official New Model Thread

Now I'm thinking blue and yellow (two colours which qualify as suitably bright but don't clash and aren't so garish as to make me queasy). Maybe purple and yellow - then they can look like a bag of rhubarb and custards.

Re: Official New Model Thread

I think you're right about earthy, military-type tones being too subdued for MC1. As much as it makes me wince, I think I'll probably have to incorporate some bright colours in there somewhere. Perhaps a good compromise might be that thing you mentioned with bright accents/piping on selected parts -...

Re: Official New Model Thread

Speaking of people being hopelessly behind the times, I recently came to the realisation that every single Dredd story I have which features Citi-Def units in action is in black and white; I don't have the faintest bloody idea what colour scheme I'll be painting my Citi-Def squad when it arrives!

Mega City Archives

Hi - just a quick question; was wondering if anyone could tell me why the Mega City One Archives series (Lawbringers, Lawbreakers etc..) don't seem to be available to buy in hard copy on the Mongoose site? I have them from Drive Thru in pdf format but would really like to get print versions as they'...

Re: New Models Previewed on Planet Mongoose

Hm. Looking back at the aforementioned Ron Smith stuff and; wow, he sure did like to do that a lot, didn't he? I'm not really a fan of this "cowboy" look and feel it detracts from the whole personalised,trusted sidearm-which-never-leaves-your-side-and-is-coded-to-your-very-DNA thing but obviously th...

Re: New Models Previewed on Planet Mongoose

I was wondering if I'd ever seen a Judge use two Lawgivers and then lo and behold; in the 'Father Earth' story Dredd has a Lawgiver in each hand near the very end (in the biotanic gardens - it's a long shot but still clearly visible). I'd assume that maybe a Judge might have a backup weapon kept at ...

Re: Looking for Ideas - Walter the Wobot

Beats me. I was just gonna use him to stand in for any generic, vaguely anthropomorphic robot in the Judge Dredd roleplaying game. Maybe he could supply Judge Dredd with a limited number of rerolls per game (like he needs them) by giving him a nice hot, steaming cup of synthi-caf if he comes into ba...

Because a proper H-Wagon would be HUGE!

So no full-size Strato V on the horizon then? :wink:

Re: Specialist Judges

No, I understand that a Judge has to have at least one four-year term on the streets before he/she chooses a specialisation. What I was curious about was if a Judge wanted to, say, do a term on the streets, go into specialist training for a year, and then do another four-year term on the streets bef...
