Ha! Foiled again! I think this will be very helpful to you Trooper!

Actually Trooper, I just spotted that Warlord made some video guides about how to play the game. They have made it more to the point and with better production values than I could.

Core Rules: https://youtu.be/onycLT6srns
Shooting: https://youtu.be/jw1NEkhrWVU

Because Warlord have already done it, rather than making an out and out how to guide, I’m going to record a couple of sessions and we’ll make a point of also explaining how the game works during play. The more I think about it, the more I think by showing the game in action, it might make learning how to play a bit easier.

I thought some of you may be interested in this unboxing video which shows the terrain set I'll be using (plus some of my collection of JD miniatures with the terrain towards the end of the video).

The  “How to” sounds a great idea. I always like to see how things are done rather than just read the rules. It always makes it clearer in my mind.

Hey Trooper, apologies I didn't answer sooner! I've recently been upgrading my gadgets for filming recently, but yes, thanks to your suggestion, this will be the first thing I do! I can't promise how quickly it'll come around, but it definitely will be top of the list for when I start doing things for JD!

Until the final episode, I was convinced that the previous 2 episodes were cobbled together as a result of Covid happening and the producers looking to see what other storylines they could quickly act upon to make the best of the situation - in those 2 episodes there were very few characters in groups together and it all looked like they were socially distanced - but, the way things played out in the final episode, I'm not sure that could have happened without the preceding episodes.

I assumed that they'd brought forward the first two episodes of S3 of The Mandalorian. The reason I'm less convinced this is the case is because of Grogu being there - unless everything was supposed to go down as it did without him being there and the additions came out of the necessity of pulling those Mandalorian episodes forward. I'm hoping we get some insight about this stuff if they release a few making of episodes as they did for S1 and S2 of Mandalorian.

So far as that last episode went, the strangest thing to me was when Boba headed back to the palace, he chose the Rancor over Slave 1. Rule of cool, I suppose, but Slave 1 could have ended the battle in moments. Of course, the Syndicate could just as easily ended the resistance with a few gunships, but again, would it have been as much fun?

Games / Re: Slaine - new Warlord miniatures game!
« on: 10 February, 2022, 01:12:11 PM »
I have loved & bought their minis for Strontium & Dredd and the Slaine ones look the same high standard. However pennies are tight and the “Slaine” world is not my favourite world from tooth so I will push them to the side until I’m flush or they go on sale.

Though if it was a Rogue or ABC world I would have broke my piggy bank and splashed the cash. 😁

I must admit that I'm really tempted by Slaine (and intrigued by the rules changes to the system used in SD & JD), but at the same time, I'd need to get 32mm fantasy scenery which I just don't have the room for so, unfortunately, I'm probably going to watch this one from the sidelines!

ABC Warriors would be cool - and it would be great for that game to be bolstered by Nemesis, Purity, Torquemada and Terminators...I'm probably getting a bit greedy though!

Thanks Leigh, I feel that would fall under option 2, much in the same vein as Allan's SD reports, or is there something more in that format that you'd like to see tweaked? He does always show the dice rolls, cards played etc while trying to put as much emphasis as possible in replicating the feel of the strip and focussing on the storytelling.

Actually, if you're looking for a "How to" video and Trooper wants to show how his (grown up) kids how to play, then I could arrange to make a tutorial video first of all before making the reports.

Cheers Trooper! That's actually the easiest option for me so that's definitely doable!

Hi all,

Later on this year, I plan on making a series of videos showcasing the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game in action. I'd want to tailor this best deliver what the community here would find most interesting to watch, so it would be great to get your thoughts on which of the 4 formats I'm currently chewing over you think you'd enjoy watching most:

1. "Real Play" video - i.e. film the whole game using hand held or tripod mounted cameras with a god's eye view of the action, including a camera on the dice tray, uploading it with minimal editing. This version would be the most game-focussed of the formats I'm considering.

2. "Narrative Gameplay" video - following the Strontium Dog series template as already established on my channel where the action is photographed and captions and speech bubbles are added to the photographs to give that feel of the strip. In addition, there would be references to the mission objectives, characters involved as well as including pics of the dice rolls, basically so as to provide some context to what is happening with the game mechanics as well. In other words, roughly 50% narrative, 50% about the game.

For anyone who's unfamiliar, here's an episode of the SD series with Middenface in action: https://youtu.be/-h5FS13_5ks

3. "Narrative Only" video - much the same as "Narrative Gameplay" video, except all of the references to the game, including pics of dice rolls etc, are removed and it is presented simply as a story, much as it would be in the prog (with the miniatures pics doing the job of the art).

4. "Immersive Narrative" video -  Exactly the same as the "Narrative only" video (no game references) except there is a narrator reading out the captions and voice actors playing the different characters and some sound effects added for gunshots, vehicles etc. This would be the most challenging and time consuming way to do it and I'd need to find members of the community willing to spend say 30 mins a month recording their dialogue on Discord. My youtube channel is not monetised so I'd be looking for people like myself who would be up for it simply for the love of Dredd and 2000AD. This is some months away from me getting to work on this, so I don't want anyone to be disappointed if they thought this was something that they could get involved with in the next 2 or 3 months, I'd expect it to be after that.

So, which would be of most interest to you? You can either pick one from format 1, 2, 3 or 4, or if you would like to rank them in order of preference from most to least preferred, that would be even more helpful! Thanks all!

That’s a cracking amount (and painted) of the Dredd minis.

I should get my finger out and start my lot but the amount to do is daunting. Maybe one day soon.

Enjoy you gaming 👍🏻

Cheers Trooper! I'm waiting on some terrain coming in but looking forward to getting a lot of use out of these later in the year!

I received rest of my collection through the post the other day so here's part 2 of the commission! As well as including plenty of Judges, it also features the recent Kleggs, Robots and Wally Squad releases...and a lot more! I'm really delighted with Simon's work and I hope you enjoy seeing them!
