I’ve had these figures since the late 1980’s, they’ve been painted and stripped twice (enamels, then early acrylics) and have been sitting in a zip-lock bag in a figure box for the last decade or more. When I saw that Dave Stone’s current challenge also had a group of people painting Judge Dredd/Mega-City One models, I decided to dig into my own models and pick a few out. Now, I don’t have any of the most Recent Warlord Games models, and while I DO have most of the Mongoose Judge line, a few from Wargames Foundry and the odd special model (Mars Attacks, Minty) – I also found these. I did also have Anderson, a Brit-Cit judge on bike and Judge Death from the early Citadel line, but they may be lost to time.
The four Judges from (our) left to right are Judge Hershey, Gallagher, Dredd (v.2) and Bambra – who appears to have been sculpted to be leaning on a bike or something. In the end and after a slightly rough start, I really enjoyed painting these. The biggest issue that they caused was wanting to immediately grab out another four of them to work on once I completed them – and I have SO many other models to paint. That’s the beauty of these challenges and even sub-challenges. I’m hoping Dredd makes a cameo in a future challenge so I can have an impetus to gran a few more of them. 🙂
I’m just throwing in my palette for the green and the gold in here – mostly for my own future reference! 🙂
