From TamsinP: Block Gang for Judge Dredd


With the forces of law and order (maybe disorder in the case of the Citi Def) painted, it is time to move on to the criminal elements of Mega City One.

With the high unemployment rates due to automation, boredom is rife among the teenagers and young adults of the city. Combine that with wanting cool stuff but not having any money, it is hardly surprising that so many turn to petty crime. Every block* has at least one gang and their rivalries and grudges frequently spill out into violent confrontations. It is quite common for two or more gangs to agree to have a rumble, sometimes over "turf", sometimes just for the sheer hell of it.


*the megablocks house tens of thousands of people each, and most people live in these.


Block Gang:


These eight figures come with the starter set, but are also available as a stand-alone pack.








The chap with the chain most have leaned over while the superglue was curing - I've fixed him since taking the pics.

 Block Gang Reinforcements:


These three figures are available as a separate pack. I ordered these at the release date, so I actually got metal ones (Yay!) rather than Warlord's nasty new resin. It seems that the resin shrinks more in the mould than the metal does - these three are noticeably taller and "fuller" than the resin ones.







I'll be working through the rest of the criminal elements over the next week or so, and will post them as and when a group are finished.

  3. Nicely done, Tamsin! And I admire how you're able to use clear bases without getting glue smears (I can't do it!)

  4. @ Iain - thanks! :)

    @ Curt - cheers! I was tempted to go with a muted look, but decided that some strong colours would be truer to the comics. :)

    @ Scooba - thanks! :)

    @ Noel - cheers! If you look closely you'll see that there are superglue smears on some of the bases! :)

  9. Nice work on these figures Tamsin. Are we going to see a game with them or are you going to pull a Ray and keep us waiting for years?

  10. The painting on these is superb as always, I am not too sure whether I like the clear bases though. Oh well that's personal for ;-)
