New For Dredd
The Judge Dredd miniatures game Kickstarter has enabled us to bring a whole host of new models to the game, and new bits and pieces are starting to flow into our office already. We thought it might be fun to take a look at some of the new items that will be coming out within the next month or so.
There is a real mix coming, from characters and additions to existing forces, to brand new forces that play very differently in the game! to begin with, here are some familiar faces from the pages of 2000AD.
Dredd’s own faithful robotic companion, Walter the Wobot has been exquisitely rendered in 3D and then prototyped into the final model you see here.
First appearing in the renowned The Pit storyline, set within a corrupt Sector House, Judge DeMarco is a most capable street judge, but always had problems keeping her emotions in check. This model will look stunning when painted (complete with freckles), and we are also working on a DeMarco figure to represent her as a Private Investigator when she left the Justice Department. Also on their way – Travis Perkins (DeMarco’s simian sidekick), Psi-Judge Anderson, Chief Judge Hershey, Fergee (King of the Big Smelly), Judge Giant, and many more!
The ordinary Street Judge has not been forgotten, with this model being added to the range – for when just one Lawgiver is not enough! If even more firepower is required…
… then the Special Weapons Judge will be just what you need, armed here with a Widowmaker – a combined shotgun and SMG. And the Justice Department will have need for such weaponry, as there are many new enemies coming to Mega-City One.
For a long time now, the Zombie Mistress has been one of our most popular figures in this range. Finally, she will now have her own zombie horde to follow her! These models use the plastics from our very good friends at Mantic Games as a base (supplied in the box set!), with new Mega-City One parts to give them suitable heads, bodies and fashionable (but rotting) kneepads! And if you are looking for a bit more protection for your zombies…
… this Zombie Judge still has most of his standard issue remaining!
Perhaps even more dangerous are the Citi-Def, the citizen soldiers of Mega-City One. True weekend warriors, these guys have seen way too many action vids and are now living out their fantasies with high-powered weaponry! Often more trouble than they are worth, they stand ever ready to defend their block against invading forces. Which brings us neatly to the next new force.
For the first time, we are proud to present a new force I know a great many of you have been looking forward to – the East Meg Invasion Force, straight from the pages of the Apocalypse War story. Left-to-right and top-to-bottom, we have a Satellat, a small robot assigned to high-ranking officers and agents as a floating bodyguard, followed by two Sov Judges, one armed with a Heavy Carbine the other with a Flamethrower. Then we have the mighty Sentenoid, a rampaging robot designed to break the back of an enemy in an assault – equipped with two Spit Guns, a Flamethrower and crushing robotic arms, it is capable of exactly that!
On the bottom row, we have two Sov Judges armed with their Krashnikov sidearm, as they might appear on the streets of East Meg-1, and what I think will be many people’s favourite in this force, a Senior East Meg Judge. Finally, an East Meg Officer, someone more interested in politics than war, but nevertheless holds the fear of all men who serve under him!
More new forces are being put together right now, including the Demonic Cabal (full of frightened cultists who have no idea what they are doing!), the Dark Judges, Mechanismo robots, Judges from other Mega-Cities, biker gangs, and much more. Stay tuned, as life in Mega-City One is about to get very interesting!
