What another new project? Well not exactly. I could claim it is a continuation from projects in the 1980-90's . But I will not. But I might change my mind later.
I will of course admit to being a JD fan, who would claim otherwise? So when I saw these at a good price on ebay I went for it. Normally each box retails for about £24 plus postage so Not bad that I got them for £29.65 including postage.
I have looked at the JD game for a while and thought about it but decided against it. But then Bryan (Vampifan) got me all enthused again and I thought "Hell why not!" So the hand went in the wallet and out came the plastic.
" gangs for less than £30 and a free (to down load) set of rules, might just be the kind of thing that may bring a semi fractured club back together.
I decided to get the Apes first and let's be frank an Ape Gang is just so 2000AD comic book. Where else would you get to play one! And besides a gorilla in a dress well on second thoughts I get to see that every Saturday night!
The second box set was far cheaper, but we can all do with some spare Judges even if they do not make up a force in their own right. I have enough old Games workshop judges for that, but these should round out any corners and we all know players always want a different figure to the one you have yourself. So this lot are credible additions.
Additionally my club want a new show game. Or at least I do so I will have a chat at the Selwg show. I do have a few ideas But just ask yourself when was the last time you saw a Judge Dredd game at a show. Now I am not saying it will be Dredd that is not my first 3 choices but is a strong 4th choice for me. (It would be higher but I also realise that making decent terrain for the game might be an issue.)
Well that is my ramblings for the day. Where this path leads no one knows just yet.
All the best Clint
