New Judges, New Beat

This is the City...sort of.
Had forgotten how much my hobby time is eroded in summer. Still managed to bang out a couple of figures and some paper terrain this past week.

The Judges of the Titan Rangers have so far come from both Indieclix plastics and vintage Citadel metals. In the search for new recruits I've added a couple of Mongoose Judges. First figures I have painted in some time so please be kind : )

Mongoose Judges
The one on the right is marketed as "Judge Dredd" so this makes the third Dredd on my force. However I think this one will be Judge Esqueza while that on the left is now Judge Baen.

The City: Turns out that Ed has been working on a brilliant set of rules called 5150 New Beginnings that actually has many of the things I wanted in "Space Cowboy" already incorporated. As such I have switched to using those rules for my games (mostly). 

One unique aspect of the new rules is that encounters can be played out on a surfaces as small as 2' x 2' and to that end I  have gone even smaller, playing the street encounters on a single sheet of foam core.

Judges patrol the street.

The Megway down the center is from the old GW City Blocks that were produced for their late lamented Judge Dredd RPG. The buildings lining the sides are from a variety of paper figure manufacturers. I wanted the architecture to represent several time periods in the city's development cycle, with a good mix of old and new all of it run down.

The buildings themselves are not fastened to the board for maximum flexibility.
One more shot.

So, how's it working out then? Both new officers were gunned down on their first patrol : ( Typical and why I should never paint figures myself!

Coming soon-ish will be a prisoner escort mission ala Six Gun Sound, albeit in the high tech dystopian future of the Titan Rangers.  A couple of Judges on Lawmasters with a couple more transporting the prisoners in a Black Maria. The oppo will be a rival gang and some of Titan's larger wildlife...

Till then, thanks for stopping by.


  1. Nice setup! What parts did you use to bash the armored crawler in the middle of the first pic?

  2. Thanks!

    The body is a yellow jacket from here:

    The treads are from the Mecha game that Worldworks produced. Just had a look at their site and cannot find it though. Name was something like "Red Sector" IIRC.

  3. Cool. I recognized the body as Topo's work, I hadn't really looked at Red Sector though. Thanks!

  4. nice scenery ; can't wait for the AAR!
