Drokk Its The Law……………….

Back in march I ordered the printed copy of the Judge Dredd miniatures game, and it turned up  in just under a week. Since then it has been sitting on the coffee table, I have picked it up few times and flicked through it but i have not read it cover to cover. Until yesterday afternoon.

Yesterday was a special event in the UK, not only was it a bank holiday but the sun was shining (yes you heard that right). Now bank holidays in the UK normally end up a wash out but this one was not. So after doing some jobs in the garden i sat back with a drink and the rule book and made the most of the weather.

I have to say that the look and feel of the book reminds me of the annuals that i got when i was a kid. The game itself uses D10`s for all dice rolls and Inch’s for all measurements. In many ways the game reminds me of  a stripped down version of  Necromunda. You have a wide choice of gangs, some of which i do not think needed to be classed as a gang. There are 12 gangs listed in the book. Out of these the Fattie Stampede, Lone Vigilante, The Angel Gang, Zombie Horde, and  Mobsters would have been better left as mercenaries.

To run a Fattie Stampede you need 5 fatties @ 60 points each =350 points and leaves you with 150 points for equipment, but in terms of money you are looking at £50.00 which makes them one of the dearest gangs out their.

Overall I like the rules, and most of the models (some of the older ones are very poor). Hopefully once I get the lair up and running i will be able to sort out some games.

I also upped my pledge on the Tablescape kickstarter so that i can get 2 sets of 16 tiles which will allow me to build a 8ft x 4ft table, i am going to go with one set of  “clean”  urban streets and one set of “damaged” urban streets, all i need now is some terrain……………………
