Judge Dredd

To set the record straight, I am a HUGE Dredd Fan. Massive. Massively Huge.
I have read every single 2000AD from Issue 1 to Issue 1597 (I hang my head in shame – I found a torrent of them as I can’t afford to buy them).
I have the first 10 Volumes of the Complete Judge Dredd Case Files, as a pride of place in my Man Cave.
I’ve seen both movies more than once. I plan to get the Blu-Ray of the latest one when it comes out.
Then on Friday I read this:
We are delighted to announce an agreement between these two progressive games companies that will see Warlord Games exclusively manufacture and distribute Mongoose Publishing’s Judge Dredd miniatures game.
Managing Director of Mongoose Publishing, Matthew Sprange, “This is a great step for the Judge Dredd miniatures game as we believe Warlord is the premier miniatures company and we have always been huge fans of their work. We have known the chaps working there for many years and look forward to working closely within them for many more.”
Paul Sawyer of Warlord Games: “We are very excited to be working with our old friend Matt on taking the Judge Dredd game to a wider audience . Many of us at Warlord are rabid Dredd and 2000AD fans and are looking forward to helping build on the solid platform built by the Mongoose team”.
Plans are already well underway for the range to be reorganised and repackaged as well as having a welter of new releases added. There are already plans for a hardback rulebook amongst other new additions. For more information about the Judge Dredd line or either company check out their websites:
I will not lie. I squealed with glee.
I know I’m not the only one…….
