Citadel Judge Dredd Perps Part 6


Borag Thungg Earthlet,

Here's my latest batch of 1985 citadel Judge Dredd miniatures, I have tried to discipline myself and do more weaponless citizens, the hoi polloi of Mega-City One's streets.

Again these miniatures are mostly from the JD3 Perps and Muties range with the occasional Slaughter Margin campaign miniature.


First up we have 'Bel' from the Slaughter Margin range a later 1987 sculpt, looks a bit like Richard Beckinsale, this Perp is a Scrawler and carries a couple of spray cans, an excellent addition to my non-combatant miniatures.

Next up is another inhabitant of Big Meg, nameless 'Citizen' who carries a very goblinoid looking mutie a baby, I took a few photos of this one to show you the baby too.

Next we have 'Squid Face' of the 'Mutie Brotherhoodin the Cursed Earth saga progs 65-66. I have already painted several members of his gang, Morgar the leader, Brother JobeeBrother GomorrahMutie with BazookaMutie in Dress, Brother Obee is the final Brotherhood member to complete and he'll be finished soon.

Continuing with have another Mutie 'Skink' I don't recall this one from any Dredd stories but I will be keeping my eye out for him as I read old progs at bedtime, he'll make a excellent Cursed Earth desperado and he is a variant of the Perp miniature 'Dib', I aim to do a post comparing all the Judge Dredd variants and how they were used to seed other ranges one day.

Here we have Captain Ravioli a miniature I painted back in the early 1990's and tidied up a little, he has Link Angels head and Rhode Island Red's body.

The next two miniatures are Judge Dredd Uglies, there were about 16 variants of 3 poses, the two below I also painted back in the early 1990's, I have loads of these Uglies and hope to paint enough for an Ugly Mug Ball (Prog 447) one day. We have Pig face and Flat Face below.

Ordo Malleus Inquisitor in Terminator Armour

Hello, today's miniature is an Ordo Malleus Inquisitor in Terminator Armour, a classic and much painted Oldhammer 40K miniature sculpted by Jes Goodwin and released in 1989, he armed with a Psycannon and Force Rod shaped like a Crozius Arcanum, festooned in Imperial livery, skulls, scrolls and arcane symbols whose meaning is long lost, he is the spiritual brother of the Imperial Inquisitor in Terminator Armour as they were released and packaged together so if you owned one you usually owned the other, you can see my Imperial Inquisitor in Terminator Armour here. (Updated photos below) 

The Ordo Malleus were introduced in the Realm of Chaos - Slaves to Darkness book in the Warhammer 40,000 'Dark Millennium' section on page 246, the Psycannon made it's appearance here on page 250, he also appeared in Space Hulk illustrations and rules but I can't remember where at the moment.

Ordo Malleus standard behind him or attached to him.

I decided to have a go and taking some better photos of my Imperial Inquisitor in Terminator armour as the photos in his original post are quite poor.

I hope you enjoyed these miniatures, there's lots more new paint jobs to follow so stay tuned.

Rogue Trader - TSF18 Space Zoat Loorg

Welcome back, today's miniature is from the classic Warhammer 40,00 Rogue Trader Space Zoat's range, this one is named 'Loorg' and classified as a Hero, there were three other classes of Space Zoat, Officer, Trooper and Heavy Weapons Trooper.

I haven't read much fluff about this race and only what was written in the section from page 201 from the Warhammer 40,00 Rogue Trader rulebook (which I have included below for your enjoyment), I am sure this race was mentioned in Ian Watson's 1993 Warhammer 40,00 novel 'Space Marine' and were slaves of the Tyranid Fleet (fleet name escape me).

I didn't find this the most enjoyable miniature to paint and am dreading painting the other three miniatures from this range but I went for the classic green theme of the adverts.

I took this image from the classic Warhammer 40,00 Chapter Approved - Book of Astronomican as I love the name graphic and again confusing product code, TSF18??? (answers in the comments section please).




Zoat section from page 201 from the Warhammer 40,00 Rogue Trader rulebook




Diego's Space Raider's Kickstarter campaign has a new version of the Space Zoat under the Alien Monsters header below and I look forward to painting this one and adding it as the leader of my Citadel Zoats.




Thanks for visiting, now get following :)

p.s. I have a spare Space Zoat Loorg for trade if you have anything really juicy for me :)

RT602 - Ambull

Hello, well finally got around to painting one of the few alien miniatures created for the Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader universe. 

The Ambull which was first described in the Rogue Trader rulebook page 207 and the miniature sculpted by Michael Perry was released March 1988 under the RT602 product code, I never did get the Rogue Trader product code system.

I went for the traditional colour scheme as shown in White Dwarf 99 and while painting this miniature it got me thinking that maybe it had its origins in the Umber Hulk of the Dungeons and Dragons universe or even the Ankheg of the Forgotten Realms setting as they both have similarities.

Here's my version.

White Dwarf 99 Ambull

Below are the first game rules for Ambulls taken from page 207 of the 1987 Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader rulebook.

The first Ambull, the miniature lost those antennae near it's mouth

Below are the rules for Ambulls with points cost taken from page 64 of White Dwarf 99.




The D&D Umber Hulk, I think you'll agree there is a likeness.




There's another great Ambull post over on sho3box, I recommend you visit and follow for essential reading.

Thanks for popping in and please follow as Space Zoats are coming soon.

Citadel Judge Dredd Perps Part 5


Borag Thungg Earthlet,

Here's this months 1985 citadel Judge Dredd miniatures I am still working on.

These miniatures are again all from the JD3 Perps and Muties range.




First we have Morgar leader of the 'Mutie Brotherhoodin the Cursed Earth saga progs 65-66.  Also Fettuchini is a variant of this miniature. I have already painted several members of his gang, Brother JobeeBrother GomorrahMutie with BazookaMutie in Dress and Squid Face and Brother Obee are being prepped up at the moment so you hopefully see these soon.

Next we have 'The Fink' member of the Angel family (gang) who attempts to get revenge on Judge Dredd for the the death of his family in Progs 193-196, like most of my miniatures I had already painted this back in the day and you can see him here 'Old Fink' but I felt the need to strip him and have another go 20+ years on.

Here we have (Mrs) Mad Ma Mahaffy a character from the early days of Judge Dredd Prog 18, the head under her arm is a 'Brainbloom' (and that's as much as I am going to tell without spoiling the story).
Mrs Mad Ma Mahaffy


Next we have two of the three Wreckers in the range, 'Wrecker Charging' and Wrecker 'Advancing' from the story 'The Wreckers' in Progs 374-375.  I have seen a few painted examples of these miniatures and most tend to go for the Ninja black look which if you look at the cover of Prog 375 below you will see was not the case as they were ordinary citizens (perps).

And finally we have 'Don Helmut' the name says it all, he is a variant of one of the Wrecker sculpts I have yet to repaint and has had a head swop with the Security miniature, as well as his Wreckers crowbar and badge he also appears to carrying a Lawgiver , Let's hope he doesn't pull the trigger.
