If you are a fan of this game, try to spread the word, as the last Kickstarter drive this company tried (their first attempt), tanked.

Didn't realise they were doing a kickstarter. I found their stuff the other day, when I was looking for the old Citadel minis online.
I have a copy of the old RPG, but I've not played the skirmish game.
Have to try and get some of the guys down geek club into it!

Pre-painted miniatures aren't my thing, but through that link I discovered the Judge Dredd wargaming rules are free! Now to convince my friends to give it a go. :D

You are correct, you need to paint them, or get someone else to do it ;)

I've pledged on this - not much , unfortunately , but I want a Manta anyway so this kills two birds. I want them to succeed so we can have the Dark Judges made. Still to come , hopefully - Lawmasters and Pat-Wagons  :o

I have no interest in the game but I'm kind of tempted (muststopbuyingstuffgrrrrr) by a miniature or two. They're all just wee plastic things, yes? Anyone understand this stuff better?

No , not plastic , but this wondrous substance called metal!!
There's loads to choose from - I don't have them all yet but am working on it. Can't paint for toffee but I don't mind them raw , as it were. They've come a long way since the Titan figures of the early 80's...

Am I missing something or is it actually cheaper, thanks to the free postage, to get the miniatures via the Kickstarter.

I think when I meet the Wizard I'm going to ask for some willpower  :( ;) :)

For any who do want their minis painted by someone else, here's a shameless plug for my mini painting service! XD

Just had a look at your FB page and the ones on there are very good! What is your charge for an average figure , say? You can PM if you like.

My judge squad, finished today after arriving at the weekend.  A rough effort, so maybe an expert wouldn't have been a bad idea.



The models are of a fairly decent quality, with a good weight to them. Some of them have a bit of a rough finish - one of my street judges doesn't fit into his stand, so he'll need to be filed down a bit - but on the whole, they're worth getting. 

Now, to construct a lawless city out of cardboard...
