Two sets of goodies for the Rogue Trooper Kickstarter today!

First up, as you will already know if you have been keeping an eye on our Comments page, we have made some tweaks to our stretch goals and rewards, following suggestions made by, well, all of you. To summarise;

1. Venus Bluegenes is now a free model to Kapitan level pledges as well!
2. If we unlock the Lazooka teams, Kapitans will receive one team free, Majors wil receive two teams free.
3. Also, if the Lazookas are unlocked, we will be sending a Sister Sledge model to every backer of Sergeant level or higher!
4. Snipers are still free to Kapitans and Majors.
5. We have added the Hammerfire Pillboxes as a stretch goal and, if achieved, a Pillbox will be sent free to every backer of Leutnant level and higher.

Second, we have just updated the Rogue Trooper rulebook and have added a whole new chapter! During the Judge Dredd Kickstarter, we became aware that more than a few of you were pretty much intending to refight the Apocalypse War - it was pretty obvious by the number of Sov Judges, Citi-Def and Mega-City One's finest you were asking for!

We have been toying with the idea of making this kind of epic fight 'official,' and finally broke down today and added the ideas we have been working on - you can now fight the Apocalypse War using the Rogue Trooper miniatures game, as we have added Mega-City One and East Meg force lists! For a truly bizarre game, you might even consider fighting Mega-City One Judges vs. Norts, or East Meg Judges vs. Southers!

We have also added new rules on city fighting, intended to reflect how truly vicious this kind of warfare is. Perfect for the Apocalypse War but, of course, there is plenty of fighting in built up areas of Nu-Earth as well, so feel free to use those rules for Nort vs. Souther confrontations too!

Now, we predict that the first response to the MC-1 force lists will be 'where are the rules for Med-Judges/Anderson/Sky Surfing Chimps?' (closely followed by 'where are the Sov Rad Sweepers?...').

As with the rest of the rules revolving aroudn this Kickstarter, we want to give you chaps enough to play with (you already have the rules to match Holocaust Judges against Sentenoids, which can only ever be an interesting match up!), and then continue to add and tweak following your comments and suggestions. So, if there is much interest shown in this side of the game, more will be added.

As to the second response, well, perhaps we will look at another Kickstarter in the future for Rad Sweepers, as that is a BIG model!

If anyone is looking to get into the Apocalypse War in any half-serious way, we have also added a small selection of Judge Dredd sets to this Kickstarter which you would be welcome to add and combine with the Rogue Trooper sets on offer.

It has occured to us that, maybe next year, we should perhaps look at doing some sort of combined '2000AD miniatures game' that will feature both skirmish and battle level gaming, and cover both Rogue Trooper and Judge Dredd (and, who knows, maybe some other comic strips as well!). However, that is just an idea scribbled on the back of an envelope at the moment, and we need to get the individual components of such a project sorted first.

So, you have our open invitation to come on in and get involved with some tasty 2000AD gaming, and let us know what changes and/or additions you would like to see, to the skirmish rules and those covering battles, to Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper.

One way or another, the future looks bright for 2000AD miniatures gaming!

Saw this, thought it would work well for the Mongoose pieces.

(bear in mind that he uses fluorescents which can't be left on due to fire risk, sure LEDs would be a better bet)

Very cool effect though.

Physical copies of the Judge Dredd miniatures game rulebook (hardback and full colour throughout) are now available for mail order via Wargame Vault.  We have recently recived copies here at Mongoose HQ, and they are just the ticket for picking a force or a quick reference during a game!



Judge Dredd is a 28mm skirmish game designed to be quick, easy to learn, and capable of handling the madness that is Mega-City One, from the powerful judges to the lowliest punk or mutant.

You can grab a copy at;

I've seen the Manta in the flesh and it is a thing of beauty!
