Judge Dredd

"So this is Gruddmas, and what have you done?
Just started a Block War, in MegaCity One!"

Sorry - Christmas spirits must be getting to me... Tomorrow I'm going to put on a Judge Dredd Miniatures Game at the club. First outing for this stuff, and it is quite a fast and furious game system from the quick run-through so far. The scenario is based around one of the interminable "Block Wars" (fights between neighbouring (and massive) housing complexes in this over-populated post-apocalyptic city with unemployment running at near 90% due to the use of robot labour. With nothing better to do, many citizens decide to join street gangs and live a life of criminality and mindless violence. The only thing standing between the city and total chaos is the Justice Department whose highly trained Judges are judge, jury and executioner for "perps" (criminals) that they catch.
The gang members of Antonio Fargas Block (above) have decided that they have had enough of the neighbouring Louise Ciccone Block and have declared Block War. The gangs from the two blocks have started fighting in the streets between, and the Justice Department have sent a team to shut the war down. But before the Judges arrive, Mad Donna and her Louise Ciccone gangers have launched a counter attack:
To restore order, there are the Judges:
So just another normal day in "The Big Meg"


  1. Got my stub gun and stumm gas packed

  2. Well, the day went to Mad Donna and the Louise Ciccone Block (Giles). David's Anatonio Fargas Block gang went down a bit to easily, although the big mutie took two Judges to drop him, and his leader managed to become a judge-killer seconds before justice was served in a terminal way. Unfortunately for the remaining Judges, the Louise Ciccone CitiDef gunner in the sentry tower was a bit too much to handle, and they went down in a hail of bullets that standard issue armour couldn't stop. So a victory for the block gang this time, but more Judges are on their way!
