Judges and Gangers! Oh My!

About a year ago I made some Judge Dredd minis out of the exelent GZG Nac troopers.

Here's a pic.



Why? Well...      .... euh..   ...just because I could actually 😛

I got the idea in my head, I had them lying around, so I decided to try making them, I did and then more or less forgot about them.

Untill I ran into Microworlds awesome Wasteland Warriors line and decided it was time to turn them into a full blown project.

I ordered a bunch of microworld figures, both gangers and vehicles and while I waited for them to arrive I finished the rest of my Judges and their rides.

From left to right Judge Dredd, Judge Barbara Hershey, Judge Cassandra Anderson and Judge Giant.


The bad guys arrived from HLS models in record time and I wasted no time basing and priming them. 

Here they are ready for paint.


I was a little bit worried because I'd read some comments that the Wasteland figures were a little on the large side for 6mm but, although some of them are indead quite large, all in all they turned out to be quite compatible imo. and I even have a picture to prove it to you


I've already painted a few of the more punk style warriors. 
They are great sculpts with lots of detail, altough I must admit they can be a bit intimidating to start on.



As I was painting them I suddenly remembered I had an Angel Barracks mini that was perfect for this project and here he is to. 

Hold it right there perp! 


That's all I've got painted for now.

I think I will use these for a test game of the TwoHourWargame Chain Reaction rules as I am thinking of getting the Urban Renewal, New hope City P.I. and Machinas rules to cobble something together that will let me capture the Judge Dredd Case Files feeling.

I will do my utmost best to give you an AAR of that but with my (non existent) AAR track record I ain't promising anything.😅

Stay safe citizens and remember OBEY THE LAW!

Cheers,
Stroezie.

  1. A new year, a new project.
    And with a great start, they look fantastic.
    How did you ever manage to put a gem-like effect one the Judge Dredd visor at this scale.

    1. Thanks,
      Ï'm allowing myself 2 new projects this year so I guess thats 1 down. ;-)
      The GZG Nac figures are actually very easy to paint and although the visors are tiny they are no smaller than the gems you find on many a 28mm figure.
