an Ape Biker Gang (okay, okay, I admit, that one is an addition made purely for myself!)
Now that's awesome.
There's something cool about the ape gangsters at a fundamental level. Still have fond memories of the original GOMC-1 team, as led by 'Sir'*.
The idea of a biker force just makes it better.

Understand that I'm not advocating violence.
I'm just saying that it's highly effective and I strongly recommend using it.

Nice idea on the bikers but Zombie Bikers (seriously!!) not going to be top of my list Iam afraid in my opinion this idea is a bit off. Would love you to do a U-Turn and maybe decide to do the Neon Knights instead.

FWIW I am totally sold on the idea of zombie bikers in MC1. Visually the only ones that I can think of right now are the crowd that the ABCs smushed on Mars about fifteen years ago. Different continuity I know, but cool anyway.

Heh :lol:

Its how I feel about the whole KS now too actually. The deals available hit a tipping point over the last few days that represent really good value if you can afford them. Good stuff :)

Whats next Matt/Mongoose? You are losing valuable pledging time :)

We really did not think the last stretch goal would be passed last night - but you guys rallied behind it and shot past it! Our grateful thanks for that.

So, in the last 20 hours or so of the Judge Dredd Kickstarter (finishes a little after 9:30am Saturday morning, UK time!), I think we have time for one last stretch goal!

If we can count on your kind support to take this project up to $95,000, we will add three of the Judda to Council of Judges, Sector Chief and Chief Judge levels. Perfect for teleporting into the Hall of Justice and creating havoc with Mega-City One Judges!

However, that is not all. We will also add another model from the same storyline, albeit one half world away - Oz Judge Bruce, mounted on his trike! Bruce and Trike will be added to Sector Chief and Chief Judge levels.

Once again, many thanks for your kind support thus far, you are making the Judge Dredd miniatures game into what we always hoped it could be!

I pledged for a Council of Judges, but as an old GoMC1 player, I own a lot of the old boxes. In the KS Comments section, you said that we'll be able to swap 4 boxes for a Manta.

Is that for real ? If so, I'll be very happy !
Please forgive my bad English as I am French.

We almost have the last stretch goal broken. For a $2000 original goal, it's raised 46x that amount. Ya know, ordinary kickstarters and ordinary people usually don't make this kinda stuff happen,

Yeah, that's pretty much how we've dealt with goals so far.

Thanks to all at Mongoose for this – I am so pleased that the JD range has had this amazing boost. I really hope that many of the backers are new customers for you that buy more and more from future releases and push the range to where it should be.

I originally thought this wouldn’t prompt me to accelerate my buying and I’d wait until they were released. However, when I saw it live I decided to back it as a Wally Squad, then as a Street Judge, then a little more, then Council of Judges and ended up backing as a Sector Chief. That’s pretty much my minis budget for the year blown in one go - but boy is it going to be worth it! I’m really looking forward to the next rules updates as I want to wet my appetite for all the goodies coming my way.

And now, time to let my refresh button have a rest and prepare myself for months of painting…

Many congratulations Matthew to everyone at Mongoose Towers and I look forward very much to seeing all the models come out and putting them on the table. All we need now is a kickstarter for a new version of the Dredd RPG (not that I am hinting much, well yes I am :)) and we are laughing :)

Great work young man your lawgiver really did fire true!

A few questions before I fill in my reward questionnaire:

How do I let you know what I want for the additional amount I've pledged over and above my Wally squad pledge?

What will be in the Dark Judge box? Just the 4 Dark Judges?

Can we see the different versions of the Pat Wagons before we order?

How many bikers in a boxed set?

Thanks.

Congratulations to Matt and Mongoose!!!!

I just wish I could have afforded to pledge more (or add after the fact LoL).

Expect my continued support!

I expect they will contact you more personally if you don't have a simple one level pledge in place.

Anyway, it was good run. Better than I expected so kudos to Mr. Sprange and the rest at Mongoose for harvesting like the mutant pirates of the Black Atlantic! Arrr!

If you have made more than a simple pledge, fill in the form then email Matt msprange@mongoosepublishing.com with the extras (or swaps) you wish to make.

Hi guys,

Well, the Kickstarter finished at a much greater peak than we ever expected - thanks you one and all for your support in this.

Now the work really begins!

I am collecting all your surveys and emails, and items have already started to ship out. I will apologise now, as I will not be very vocal over the next week or so, but know that I am busy beavering away on all your bits and pieces!

Drop me a line if you have pledged for extras, and I'll mail you back if there are any issues.

Otherwise stay tuned to announcements here of funky new models, book updates, and stay by your letter box for goodies!
