Dark Judges

Recommended Posts

Hi all, MrC's son here, recently got the Dark Judges from the Judge Dredd kickstarter (at last!) and really digging the sculpts, especially fire. Trouble is the detail on Fire is beyond what I've dealt with previously, and I haven't ever painted a mini that's 'on fire' per se... so does anyone have any advice on painting flames?


Included are a few photos of the judges. Any C&C on the rest will be appreciated.




Thanks in advance!

Very good fire tutorial, but I find it ends up a bit too white. The temperature of the flame should dictate how you paint it, but for torch-light or campfires I've always been partial to having a little bit of black glazed on the upper-most tips, and a more yellow-white near the base. I'm not sure what temperature Guy-Who-Is-Literally-Fire should be.


Here's a few more tutorials:

Thanks, I have on occasion painted fire, e.g. torches, but never something of this magnitude. When I next get chance I might try painting one of my practice figures (Halo Actionclix, got a bundle cheap on eBay) with the techniques shown and then when I feel ready give it my best shot. Just not near any schools......




I know, if the judges had arrived on time I would be singing Mongoose's praise from here to Timbuktu but alas they were the latest to arrive Kickstarter I've backed thus far (about 10 months all told) and there was a distinct lack of communication. But every time I start to feel frustrated, I just look at ol' firey and think "I can't stay mad at you"


When Mongoose make this available for general release, I'll let you all know :;):


(Dad here) actually just short of 11 months to wait, but very little in the way of information, made Reaper seem excellent in their communication.

      Just for something simple and fun.

      Well, I painted this.

      I'm not really sure it's much to show off about, but at least it's done. This is definitely my least favourite of the Renegade Robot set, so it was kind of a chore to paint, and it shows.
      Ah, well. Onward and upward.

      Mr Chimpy McChimperson is all done!

      I couldn't resist including a little cross-comic reference:

      Overall I'm pretty happy with this little ape, though I kind of forgot what I was doing and fluffed the jeans, and I think maybe the belly sticking out should have been covered in black hair. Not sure if the bloody bat is too much; I may be overdoing it with the gore lately because I have a recipe that I'm really happy with.
      Also, I need a better name for him than Chimpy McChimperson. Maybe... the Bear Chimp?

      This fella's been WIP for far too long, so I got him finished up tonight.

      Basically, I decided I wanted several different colours on him but I didn't want it to look like an explosion at a clown college. So, I went with four colours, with each colour repeated on three panels (when in doubt with a colour scheme, I use the Rule of Three). I think it worked quite well, and with the servo droid I finished tonight as well it puts me over half way to completing the renegade robot gang - only another servo droid, a robodog and the combat droid to go!

      The recent (and long awaited) arrival of my Judge Dredd rulebook has got me on another Mega-City One painting kick!
      Finished up a couple of renegade robots today, here's the servo droid.

      I couldn't resist adding some gore to the chainsaw after reading a nice and simple tutorial recently. I decided not to go for a full-on splatterfest, though, it would have been quite easy to go overboard.
      I really like this model for reasons I'm not entirely sure about. I think it's the strange combination of the droid's non-threatening design and the huge chainsaw it has for a hand.
