They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

Ave atque salve Thrill Seekers.

Currently there is a Kickstarter for miniatures for the Judge Dredd miniatures game. Kickstarter details are here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1990654819/judge-dredd-m...

I have seen and painted a fair number of Mongoose products and they are quite reasonable in quality. In all honesty, probably not up to the standards of the Foundry range, but Foundry are both limited (No Judge Fear) and expensive - check 'em out here: http://wargamesfoundry.com/fantasy_ranges/single_packs/2000a...

To give you an idea of the Mongoose quality, here's three Judges I painted up a while ago:




Note this is not for the game rules itself (which can be downloaded for free here:http://www.wargamevault.com/product/88841/Judge-Dredd-Miniat...) but rather a slew of Mega City One related miniatures.

I am wondering if anyone else is interested in getting some of the miniatures and maybe spliting the big $300 "Council of Judges" set which includes 18 boxed sets for all factions currently in the game as well as, at the time of writing, 7 other different stretch goal rewards.

As far as I can tell, the faction sets are:

Justice Department
Ape Gang Box
Judge Caligula's Personal Retinue
Fattie Stampede
Sky Surfer Gang
Holocaust Judges
Cursed Earth Desperadoes
Street Gang
Renegade Robots
Angel Gang
Justice Department II
City Def
Zombie Horde
Dark Judges
Sov Invasion Force
Demonic Cabal
ABC Warriors
Specialist Judges


Here's a picture of 'em all: [urlhttp://www.mongoosepublishing.com/pdf/boximages.jpg[/url] Note that some are at the conceptual stage an won't be released straight away.

Of course, some of the other stretch rewards are better than others; I'd rate the resin Pat Wagon above the Elec Cordon for instance. Then again, fans of electric fences might disagree with me.

So with all this stuff on offer this shared order would only work if we could agree on how to divide things.

At this stage the only items I am dead-set keen on acquiring are the Dark Judges and the Sov Invasion. Yep, I'm a merry sort of chap.

Once I get an idea of who (if anyone) is interested then we can work out if this is a go-er and how much each participant should contribute.

So, if you'd like to go in with this order please let me know soon. If there isn't enough interest I'll look further afield early next week, but keep seeking support from ACT BGGers until the offer closes.

Oh yeah, all pledge levels are post free worldwide so that's nice just for the novelty of it.

The Kickstarter ends on 13 October 2012.

UPDATE: The next goal has been reached and there is also another box set on offer of "International Judges" - see just how silly the "Oz Judge's" uniform is.

Other stuff to (maybe) come includes Assassin Droids, Chief Judge Hershy and Nero then a variety of villians.

From the crowd including a gang of dudes on flying surfboards, three obese men on tiny tricycles and a gorilla in a sundress, that's what you call out as silly?

Alas not my sort of game, but I forwarded this link to a friend who isn't on BGG much -- unfortunately he said he already has the factions he's interested in. Good luck!

Thanks for forwarding.

I guess silliness is in the eye of the beholder, I just don't really see anything distinctly 'Australian' in the Oz Judge uniform wheras other 'foreign' judges have some sort of representation of the (ex) nation they police. I tend to think the Hondo judges are about the best.

Update:

Well, I am indeed a weak, weak man.

Not only did I go for the 'Council of Judges' package, but I also picked up the Brit Cit Judges just because.

In the last 24 hours two more stretch goals have been met - some vehicles (only for the really expensive pledges ($500 & $950) and three more Heros of Mega City One.

As mentioned elsewhere, I am happy to sell/swap some of the boxed sets (not the Dark Judges or Soviet Judges though). If you're after a box or two GM me...
