Re: Using Mobs in melee

Thanks for the reply. This does seem to make mobs too dangerous, out of proportion to their cost, in my opinion. As an example to see how this works, say 6 punks with knives charge Judge Dredd. They can all get into contact because they do not have to charge in a straight line. Then each punk would ...

Re: Using Mobs in melee

Direction of Push Back in melee

P.16 of JD Miniatures Game says that the direction of push back after a melee is 'directly away' from the winne If I have two figures in melee on an elevated walkway, which is only wide enough for one figure, does this mean that the winner of a melee cannot in fact push the loser off the walkway?

Zombies in melee

In the JDMG rulebook on P86, the zombies have no weapons listed, nor can you buy any for them. In melee, therefore, do they count as having 'Fists and Feet'?
