Good to see that one of the liscencing agreements is that Tharg gets the final go-ahead, that way no crap gets sifted through.

How big are they, height-wise?

Hi Tu-plang,
I think you may have missed my post on this thread further up (13th from the top) which has the exact dimensions near as damn it to Slaine, Ukko and of course Hammerstien. Dredd stands the same sizes roughly as the last miniature around 2.5 cm tall. All the models have an intergal base, unlike those from Games Workshop where the figure slides into a plastic base, and Slaine, Ukko and Hammerstien all have their names emmbossed on the front of their bases.

Will have a full review of the models and painting guide on Dredd Times as soon as I finish them.

Hmmm.

Looks down to Jackson's usual standard.

For those of you interested in such things, there's an excellent debate on the current state of Foundry Miniatures and their ludicrous postage charges etc here.

I hope Foundry are going to release some Judge minatures with the Judges using Lawgiver MKII's as so far both of their Dredd minatures have had Lawgiver MKI's. I'd also love to see a Judge minature armed with a Widowmaker.

Fans bitching about how the product isn't as good as it used to be, slagging off the company, complaining about the price and workers revolting...

All eerily familiar

Incidently they did have many good points, too expensive, crappy postage deals and having to wait till they've got about eight packs ready before they release them for general consumption..  

Wave goodbye to just over two quid a figure, say hello to ?4-?8.50 a figure.  Though I appreciate they are bigger in size.

That said, very nice figures and I do want them, but the above issues just induce hand wringing and wailing while I decide whether I should get them.  I think thy would tend to put off anyone but the most fervant.

Hmm.....considering the Judge Dredd RPG has been out for several months now, I do think that Foundry are being very slow releasing minatures for it. Where the heck are the Judges on Lawmasters? All we've had so far are two Dredd figures, and wasn't one of them a limited edition only release?

IIRC Games Workshop was much quicker at pumping out minatures when they had their Dredd RPG going back in the 80's.

I now have multiple 2000AD Preview packs to sell at ?10 each including postage.

The preview pack contains Judge Dredd, Slaine, Johnny Alpha, and Mean Machine.

I also have 1 spare Hammerstein and 1 spare Slaine+Ukko, so these will go to the first person/people to email me who also want a preview pack.
