2000AD Strontium Dogs, Slaine mac Roth and Judge Dredd uniform controversy........

.........or owning a Saunders and promoting some blog giveaways!

Andrew"Loki" Saunders painted these figures for me after I won a competition prize on his blog for 5 historical miniatures to be painted for the winner, as you can see these are slightly not historical and Andrew was stupid kind enough to paint these favourite icons from the 2000AD comic that I read as a kid and still do occasionally ( a mate gives me his when he finishes reading them), it's not as good as it was but Dredd still rules.............



Johnny Alpha, The Gronk and Wulf Sternhammer!


Slaine MacRoth - Mighty black-haired Irish warrior exiled from the Sessair tribe for having an affair with the chief's fiance Niamh, the axe is called Brainbiter!.



The mighty Judge Dredd in an unsanctioned department issue test colour uniform, it may not get approval.

Thanks Andrew, more quality painters work added to the cabinet!


Promoting a couple of giveaway as well on some other blogs..............


Millsy over at Canister and Grape is celebrating 50,000 hits with some lovely items (I want the figure)......


The Ferret is celebrating 200.000 hits with 11 items up for grabs................



So support the guys and good luck to all except Ray and BigLee because one is a git and the other is already too rich!

  1. Awesome! I have to say, Brainbiter is such a badass name for an axe.

  2. Dredd looks good! You know, in three thousand years those figures will be historical...

  3. Fabulous brushwork by Andrew - as always. I love 'em all, but Johnny Alpha is really eye-catching - the pose and the colors are wonderful.

  4. very nice figures. Everyone will have a favourite. Slaine for the painting but Gronk in the comics. I can taste the nostalgia when I breathe in deeply enough.

  7. If you think about it, Judge Dredd is from the future and is technically an historical figure, or will be one one day at least. I loved Judge Dredd but I didn't know much about other 2000AD comics. Actually for a while I thought Judge Dredd was the only comic they had.

    1. He started in 2000AD but before that Starlord I believe?

    2. Dredd has only appeared in 2000AD (but only from the 2nd prog though). It was Strontium Dog that first started in Starlord.

    2. The 'Haunting of Sector House 13' is great if you can find it. I can't believe that that story is 30 years old!

  10. Awesome. I had no idea there was a 2000AD line.

  19. Really nice set of figures there mate. I particularly like the black haired Irish bloke with white hair (?) - reminds me of how I looked in my younger days (except without the axe and I did usually wear jeans and a T-shirt . . . .)

  21. Great painting Francis. I love that dude with the blue war paint. All these giveaways I feel like starting one myself at 50mm gameroom...

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aren't you the lucky one; Loki knows his brush. I'm glad you want the figures, less competition for the real prize, the painted miniature.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Fine collection of painted minis, General. Only the best make it into your gilded display case.

    ReplyDelete
  24. All great work but Slaine MacGowan is my favorite! If I had muscles like that, perhaps the Mrs. couldn't keep her hands off me.

  28. Glad you like them Francis. I found the fantasy to be a very liberating experience.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Andrew did a bang up job on these and fantasy is new to him. Me is envious of these :)

  30. Ah 2000AD,... fond memories of teenage youth...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Dredd in Red Fran? He may have come out of the closest...Not that there is anything wrong with that...

    Nice attention to details mate.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Very nice winnings :) and thanks for the plug!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Greatwork, Slaine MacRoth is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Fantastic figures. Not sure about a red Dredd though, looks like a Sov-block judge ;)

    1. Hadn't thought of that but you're right!

  35. You are a very lucky man Fran! Very very nice work Andrew!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Methinks there would be much money to be made from ticket sales to when you inform Judge Dredd that he is out of uniform.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Some beautiful minis for the F. Lee Collection. Lovely, lovely work.

    ReplyDelete
  38. They are really cool figures; the red Dredd is really great!

    ReplyDelete
  39. They look good Fran. Not up enough on JD to know what is wrong with his uniform.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nice figures, Fran - but as a life-long JD fan; no, no ,no no!!!!! etc... ;)

  41. Always, always loved 2000AD and they're my favorite characters (Stainless Steel Rat and DR and the Qunich come close.) As for the Dredd paint job, the noble Judge a Liverpool supporter, NO! I say.

    ReplyDelete
  42. DR and Quinch....I'd forgotten them but you're right mate.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Good luck winning the one you want!
