We are looking to expand the Judge Dredd miniatures game through the new Block War supplement and miniatures range.
The Judge Dredd miniatures game features a completely free to download rulebook and has been running with the support of its fans for two years now. It is a 28mm skirmish-level science fiction miniatures game based on the iconic 2000AD comic strip where players take a force or faction from Mega-City One and prepare to do battle on the streets! Full campaign rules are integrated into the game, and feature a system whereby weaker forces are never at a disadvantage – even a lowly gang of street punks can take on Judge Dredd and his cohorts if you have enough reinforcements!
You can see how the Judge Dredd miniatures game works in play and what it looks like for free, simply by downloading the rulebook from here.
We have now started work on the first supplement, Block War, which introduces more scenarios, weapons, challenges and, of course, rules for a new range of models. The Block War supplement, like the main rulebook, will be completely free to download, and always will be.
So, why do we need your help?
Well, we have a huge list of models requested by fans of the game, including everything from a Sov Invasion Force to the Dark Judges! They will all be playable in the game with rules provided in Block War but Mongoose Publishing is a small company and we can only bring out a few models at a time. However, with your kind help, we will be able to bring out models on a more regular basis and be more ambitious with them, keeping the Judge Dredd miniatures game fresh and interesting, as you will always have new enemies to fight on the tabletop!
To this end, we have a variety of pledge levels that we hope will either get you into the Judge Dredd miniatures game for the first time, or encourage you to expand your forces, along with the odd unique collector’s item.
Important: Models are metal and/or resin, and are supplied unpainted and unassembled.
You can see all the box sets available for the pledge levels that have them here, both those already out and the concept art for those being made because of this Kickstarter.
One last stretch goal! If we can count on your kind support to take this project up to $95,000, we will add three of the Judda to Council of Judges, Sector Chief and Chief Judge levels. Perfect for teleporting into the Hall of Justice and creating havoc with Mega-City One Judges!
However, that is not all. We will also add another model from the same storyline, albeit one half world away - Oz Judge Bruce, mounted on his trike! Bruce and Trike will be added to Sector Chief and Chief Judge levels.
And that is not all either! Now that we have passed the $80,000 stretch, we will send an electronic copy of the Judge Dredd RPG core book (which is a lovely read, even if you are not a roleplayer) to everyone who has pledged more than $100, regardless of actual pledge level - just our way of saying thank you very, very much for all your support. Judge Dredd started off as a 'community' game, and your help in boosting both its range and profile is appreciated beyond words here at Mongoose HQ. Thank you.
Here at Mongoose, we are really excited about the new movie, the Block War supplement and what the future holds for Judge Dredd overall. 2000AD was the first comic I started reading when I was a kid, and it has been with me for, well, decades now! Back then I would never have guessed I would actually be working with Judge Dredd and exploring Mega-City One, and it is great to share this with fans of the comic who love the high octane action and black humour of Judge Dredd.
May your Lawgiver always fire true!
You can, yes. Simply select any one pledge level you are after, and then additional Dollars to cover any other you are interested in. For example, if you wanted two force box sets (Street Judge level), the Lawmaster and Judge Dredd, simply pledge for the Street Judge level ($50), and add $20 for the Lawmaster and another $5 for Judge Dredd. We will be in touch after the Kickstarter ends to find out exactly what you are after, and get your goodies off to you as quickly as we can.
For items that already exist (such as most of the force box sets, Judge Dredd, Brit-Cit Judges, etc) we are already manufacturing to cover pledges. These we will dispatch as quickly as possible after the Kickstarter ends - while we do not know how many pledges there will be at the end of the Kickstarter, we will be working to get these items out to everyone within two weeks of the Kickstarter ending.
Other items are currently being designed or are in the queue to be designed; manufacturing naturally follows this, so there will be a time lag. For some items, like the Lawmaster and Manta Prowl Tank, we are already prepping manufacture, and so they should follow quickly. Others will take a little longer - however, if you have pledged for some items that are already being manufactured and others that need to go through the design process, we will not hold your miniatures up until everything is finish. We will send items out as they are ready, so you will not have to wait long to start seeing some Judge Dredd goodness!
