Citadel JD, Paranoia AND Gothic Horror

Since I've started to paint again I've made in roads towards a mixed Citadel/Perry miniatures 2nd/3rd edition Bretonnian/Border Prince army. I'm up to about 150 miniatures - most in a semi painted state. I quite fancy a few ogres or a giant to support them, but haven't really got the motivation to finish what I have at the moment - I'm sure I will return to them at some point.

I also got really excited about Space Fleet and the really old QT models range that GW stocked. I've got a reasonable sized fleet of very basically painted miniatures (inked and dry brushed with a few details), but my real love is Judge Dredd. Had loads of fun playing the RPG in the late 80s and am now awaiting delivery of the latest kickstarter RPG.

I'd been eyeing up some of the Foundry minis and when they dropped the range I picked up most of the ABC warriors at a bargain price. Also have quite a bit of the Mongoose/Warlord minis - both ranges are a bit hit and miss - and that's also the case for the Citadel range... however they are much more widely available and there are some great individual figures out there. Including the infamous angel gang...

love the detail here with Mr Rat. This is a really nice model to paint - sorry about the quality of the images - still working out how to best post these

The others Angel gang member's will follow. Have a Link angel in the off but the Mean Machine i have is very crappy and has lost most of his details.

In the mean time here is my JD fatty. Much prefer these to the Mongoose jobs. I'd intended to give him an Adidas double stripe trackie but his layers of fat actually made that quite a challenge. This was the second one I did, my brother in law had one floating around his parents house - hopefully I can find a photo of him to upload (same model, but different arm)

Those figs look great. Characters are easily identifyable from Judge Dredd universe. Ihave allways been huge fan of Judge Dredd comics.

They look good. They'd probably even make nice obstacles in an adventure game unrelated to Dred. Good stuff!

They are some very nice sculpts in the range - definitely capture the 2000 AD spirit and could easily use as part of a Rogue Trader game (some of the minis are a little on the small side, especially the judges)

Re: Angel Gang - updated

Am loving these old sculpts - so much character and for some reason the paint and ink is going on really well (for me at least) - has given me a new painting mojo. Hope it doesn't wear off too quickly and I can actually finish them...
