From TamsinP: Citi Def Troopers for Judge Dredd


Following on from the Justice Department, this time we have their civilian support, the Citizens Defence. In Mega City One each block has a militia which citizens can join, the Citi Def. Their role is to defend their block during time of emergency and to assist the Judges when called upon to do so. Some block Citi Defs are reasonably well trained and competent, others less so.

When you consider how bored, stupid, downright nuts and generally ornery most of MC1's citizens are, you can well imagine that giving them access to military grade weapons is potentially not the wisest of moves. They have regularly been the instigators of or involved in the frequent block wars (where citizens of one or more blocks start fighting those of other rival blocks) which occur.

However, they have played important roles fighting alongside the Judges in numerous major stories: during the East Meg Sov invasion of the Apocalypse War; and Judgement Day when the necromancer Sabbat traveled back in time (pursued by Johnny Alpha) and raised an army of zombies which attacked many cities.








I've just primed the next batch of figures, so I should have some more to show you soon.

  1. Always difficult to make a dark colour scheme pop, but you've really made it work, Tamsin.

  2. Great work Tamsin, they look excellent.
    Also - well done with the clear bases! Any time I try that, it ends in fingerprints and tears...

  6. Nice work. Hopefully they'll provide adequate support for the Judges, or at least won't be too much of a hindrance.
