Re: Some rules q's (judges in The Mall scenario + more)

In Judge Dredd there is capital punishment. So if the crime fits, yes. Very rarely used. That I can recall offhand, of all Dredd's foes only Orlok, Kraken and Lazarus Kohlrabi have been executed after capture, the former after an unusual public showtrial. Recently PJ Maybe was scheduled for executi...

Re: Rogue Trooper Kickstarter - First Vehicle Unlocked!

Nicely done, Matt. Very tasty, very tempting. I haven't pledged yet (keeping my powder dry in the hope some cash turns up in the next week-or-so), but some of the drivel on the backers-only comments section on the Kickstarter is starting to make it hard to hold off... I particularly like the "make a...

Re: Rogue Trooper Kickstarter - First Vehicle Unlocked!

I'd agree that some character-model bonuses at Kapitan would make things more enticing for people to get on board, especially seeing as pledging at that level might only get you some Rogues, two vehicles and one squad. And let's face it, once you were in at Kapitan, you'd start thinking about gettin...

Re: Official New Model Thread

If you take a gander at the latter half of the incredible Day of Chaos storyline (1743-1789), you'll see literally dozens of different blocks' Citi-Def units in full gore-drenched colour, busily murdering each other for multiple gut-wrenching episodes as MC-1 dies a slow horrible death. The follow-u...

Re: Presidential Guard Robot Gang

Splendid! When Spikes and Hammerstein (retconned into the Battle of Armageddon after the '95 movie, so there are bound to be a few Mk IIIs in that junk pile) show up all you need is a Tweak and you're all set.

Viable New Factions for future boxsets...

Okay, so we can all produce long lists of the characters we'd most like to see made as new miniatures (Maria, Dirty Frank, Aimee Nixon, Judge Beeny, Call-Me-Kenneth, Nimrod... need I go on?), and the Kickstarter has made huge inroads into fulfilling many long-held dreams of minis collectors. However...

Re: Official New Model Thread

So, the Dark Judges are no-more ... Well Death's cronies were out and about as recently as this summer just gone, and as their spirit forms are now in the 'care' of a psychopathic mass-murdering genius I'm sure it won't long 'til they're out again. Max Normal's been back in the Prog very recently i...

Re: Official New Model Thread

Is there ANY chance that the Specialist Judges might include Wally Squad figures that could pass as Jack Point (a Simp) and/or Dirty Frank (a.... Dirty Frank)?

Re: Looking for Ideas - Walter the Wobot

Been thinking about Walter's possible role in the game. Strip-wise Walter's main role has been to save Dredd's tight-booted behind (he saves Dwedd in the Hall of Justice during the Apocalypse War, and triggers the booby trap in Wowdy Yates after Narcos' Doomsday), as well as a general irritant. I wo...

Re: Other 2000AD Games

Top choice for me would be Dante - a huge variety of factions, terrific retro-futuristic uniform designs for the Romanovs and Makarovs, with Dante himself and the Rudinshtein Irregulars, his mother's Pirates, plus all manner of (always-popular) Animal-men, Vampires, Amazons and Aliens. Just crying o...

Re: Judges of the World

Ideally for me it'd be: Luna-1 Marshal (original version, not the Breathing Space one) Emerald Isle (Spud gun to chips!) Hondo (male version - just a great design from MacNeil and McCarthy) Banana City (Cuidad Baranquilla is one of my fave Dreddworld locations) Texas City (love the hat) Oz (love the...

Re: (Ahem) Rulebook Update

Perhaps there would need to be some sort of balancing control to prevent over-use - something like the Arrest requirement. Maybe a Judge can't order his Lawmaster to take independent action if there is another Judge within 12", or take a shot if he himself was able to? After all, dispensing justice ...

Re: Judge Dredd Miniatures - Not Included in Box Sets

Also Inspector Inaba and the three Brit-Cit judges models (and of course the various singles floated in the Kickstarter). Damn, I completely missed the fact that the Gorilla Gangster wasn't in the Ape Gang set, lovely model, there was a Troggie Pledge I could have added. Ah well, will have to make d...
