I was actually thinking the same thing. The attack did affect Europe as well because Dyn (the target) is a DNS host, which as I’ve understood it is like a registry that correlates domain names with IP addresses, thus directing internet traffic to where it’s supposed to go, even sometimes when that traffic is from or to outside of North America. And my error was a DNS one.
So somewhere out there, there are creeps who owe me a pair of 28mm Judge Dredd Miniatures Game weapon packs. Where’s Dredd when you need him?26/10/2016 at 00:30 #51155Alex BatesParticipant
This is a great collection!

So it looks like Mongoose is dropping the line, afterall. However, Matt has indicated that another company may be taking it over (hoping it is Warlord or Ainsty, the companies that have been handling the production and distribution).
My lead and plastic pile is already going to keep me busy for years.26/10/2016 at 18:18 #51201
Ahh, Mongoose. Good old Mongoose.
Let’s hope this is just the start of a new era for the game.26/10/2016 at 21:26 #51226Andrew ThomasParticipant
Wayland Games seem to still have some Judge Dredd in stock, but not at 50% off.29/10/2016 at 17:20 #5141201/11/2016 at 01:19 #51562

Great stuff as always. The second figure looks to me like it might originally have been a boxing coach. But that’s just a hunch.
By the way, I like the way you base your figures differently. It suits the urban theme well.04/11/2016 at 18:41 #51829
I was wondering if that was a rolled up paper, towel, map, etc. in his hand. That makes sense.
A friend gave me a small box of moderns that he was planning on doing something with but eventually gave up on the idea. I can identify the Foundry pieces, but some of them are unknown to me.04/11/2016 at 19:28 #51834Angel BarracksModerator
Even if they do nothing more than act as set dressing, I think that having civilians is a necessary addition to many settings.

I think about 60-70 painted, which is not nearly enough!
I’ve got a desk drawer and a couple boxes that contain probably two hundred more. Then there is the wishlist of things to be gotten…

Warlord announced they have the license.
I see they’re intending to go for a Strontium Dog game first. I’m still not familiar with that particular setting but the description “futuristic Wild West-style series where mutated humans such as Johnny Alpha are forced to become bounty hunters” sounds good to me.14/12/2016 at 17:33 #5388014/12/2016 at 17:51 #5388214/12/2016 at 17:52 #53883AbwehrschlachtParticipant

Being American, I didn’t grow up with 2000AD and mainly have stuck to Dredd-verse. Nikolai Dante looks like fun and Nemesis the Warlock is another that I’m interested in looking at.
But I think it could be very good for fans of the different strips to have a company that will support them with miniatures and rules.
Bright future ahead for 2000AD gaming.14/12/2016 at 23:01 #53902
Bright future ahead for 2000AD gaming.
Here’s hoping. As I’m not British either (and didn’t read very many comics / graphic novels at all growing up) I’m likewise quite unfamiliar with the various 2000AD stories. It’s only recently I’ve begun reading up on Judge Dredd and Slaine. But I do greatly appreciate the fact of 2000AD for its unique contributions to the culture of sci-fi and fantasy geekdom. There is a certain “flavour” to 2000AD that nothing else seems to have.
I only hope they make a “full” range of miniatures for each setting. By “full” I don’t mean exhaustive by any means, but integral and self-contained enough that each setting can be gamed satisfactorily, with enough available figures for at least two opposing factions of, say, 6-12 figures each without the glaring use of duplicates. This as opposed to merely releasing figures for a few of the central characters like what Foundry did when they had 2000AD, which might have been adequate for painter-collectors, but not gamers.
Come to think of it, I’m curious to see what sculpting style they will go for. If, as I’ve understood it, they mean to put Judge Dredd on the backburner while focusing on Strontium Dog, then it might not be a given that the old Mongoose figures will make a comeback – perhaps Warlord didn’t want to buy the rights for those sculpts. One might expect a rather cartoonish hand-sculpted style from 2000AD-themed figures, but the folks at Warlord have been working with CAD sculpting a lot lately, with varying results. Their Antares figures appeal to me well enough, but the Doctor Who figures leave me cold. I’ve seen read some complaints about the cartoonish style of the Mongoose Judge Dredd figures, but at least they have a “soul”, whereas some of those new Warlord Doctor Who figures are frankly soulless (especially in comparison to the old, inofficial, hand-sculpted ones that Heresy and Crooked Dice used to sell).15/12/2016 at 00:30 #53903
38mm for Doctor Who? That’s too large for most people’s collections.15/12/2016 at 00:42 #53904
Wait, what? They’re 38mm? I now realise their scale doesn’t seem to be stated anywhere on the Warlord website that I can see. Where did you read 38mm?15/12/2016 at 02:51 #53905
The Doctor Who miniatures site shows a ruler next to a silhouette.15/12/2016 at 14:04 #53921
Oh… well, that’s still slightly disappointing. I’d still been eyeing those plastic Daleks and Cybermen.
Let’s hope they keep their 2000AD figures at a sensible 28-30mm. They’re not the first company to go for the 35-40mm standard lately, though. Knight Models make their licensed Batman Miniatures Game in 35mm – at a preposterously high price level, to boot. I can see some parallels between Batman, Doctor Who and 2000AD as miniatures gaming concepts. With popular licensed settings and characters like these, there’s a greater incentive to appeal to painter-collectors as well as gamers. I can’t help but notice, for instance, that the Doctor Who figures come with display-style bases that have their names written on them. If they genuinely consider painter-collectors a central part of the customer base for these ranges, then upscaling to 35-40mm may well be a clever move within that frame of mind. I personally would be disappointed, though.17/01/2017 at 03:51 #55774
Not my best stuff, but I’ll keep painting and inflicting them on you, anyway.17/01/2017 at 09:03 #55779StroezieParticipant
Two simple but effective models.
Going over your thread again has made me realise I’m going to have to pull in more miniatures from different manufacturers for my own Judge Dredd project.
