“Hello, I’m The Angel Of Mercy.”


“I’ve come to give you both a lethal injection.”

This 28mm scale metal miniature of Oola Blint was produced by “Mongoose Publishing” and formed part of my rewards from the company’s 2012 “Judge Dredd Miniatures Game: Block War” Kickstarter. The now long out of production (OOP) figure was sculpted by Gary Morley and later made available by “Warlord Games” as blister Code JD20169.


“A strikingly beautiful woman” who visited “the lonely, the desperate, and the dejected to grant them the sweet release of a dignified death – whether they wanted it or not”, the serial killer was undercoated using two layers of “Abaddon Black”. She was then dry-brushed with “Vallejo” Heavy Charcoal and enthusiastically shaded with “Citadel” Abaddon Black.

"The Dark Ones guard it by night and by day they call out the Slayers."

To be honest, I was actually pretty happy to leave the mass murderer’s attire at that, and simply focus upon her deadly syringe containing the lethal drug zilocaine. However, having seen the ‘official’ paintjob I became more inclined to make Blint’s cuffs and collar stand-out a little bit from her dark dress; albeit not to the point of pigmenting them white, as this seemed to be at odds with the predominantly black clothing she wore within the comic book pages of “2000 A.D.”


As a result, I used a combination of “Vallejo” Dark Grey and “Citadel” Nuln Oil on her cuffs, collar and hat-feathers, before turning to some “Vallejo” Escorpena Green and “Citadel” Biel-Tan Green for Oola’s aforementioned hand-weapon. Lastly, I decided to step somewhat aware from the cold-hearted character’s usual palette by ‘picking out’ her hair with “Vallejo” Steel Grey. This area was subsequently darkened with a double-dose of “Citadel” Nuln Oil, but still turned out somewhat bluer than it appears on the printed page so as to better ‘break up’ the figure’s largely black colour scheme.

"Gasosaurus is a genus of tetanuran theropod that lived... during the middle of the Jurassic Period."

Alongside my latest “Judge Dredd” related miniature, I have managed to finish another three 28mm Sorcerous Sentinels by “Crooked Dice Game Design Studio”. These “otherworldly watchers” can be purchased from the company’s ever-expanding fantasy range as SKU: DEAL 304 and are clearly inspired by the “race of aliens that serve The Beast” in Peter Yates’ 1983 film “Krull”.


In addition, I have successfully re-based an old DIN109 Gasosaurus model I bought and painted from “Magister Militum” approximately a decade ago. The dinosaur was slightly damaged during its transition, but luckily a little “Vallejo” USA Olive Drab and “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade seemed to fix the problem without any noticeable difference to the figure’s original paint-job.

Lovely work all round mate, Oola is a smashing figure (with a smashing figure 😉) and that's a great paint job you've done on her too.


Sometimes you make it hard to tell exactly how many of a type opf figure you own, it seems like you've had a endless stream of the sentinels coming off you painting table of late!


Love the new Dino base too by the way 😀.


Cheers Roger.

Thanks Roger. I'm rather pleased with how Oola turned out. I currently have seven finished Sorcerous Sentinels, with two more on the painting table, and a further three primed ready for the AHPC - as they'll be white royal guards.


I'm rather pleased with how well the new basing works with the old dinosaurs I painted, and hope to give these ten year plus figures some new tabletop life once I've re-based enough of them.

I don't know the Judge Dredd goth character but she looks good, I especially like the way you have done the face. The sentinels look very nice and can be used in lots of games I guess as constructs, golems and the like.

You seem to be in a very dinosaur mood! Any more heading to the blog?

Thanks Undercoat. I have a few more Judge Dredd minis on the back-burner so-to-speak, which may get finished over the next few weeks. I certainly have more Sentinels to come.


I've a handful of previously painted Dinos I want to rebase which will crop up over the next few weeks. Not sure if I'll then actually paint any new ones, but you never know.

Oola looks excellent, sir, she's got a real dodgy vibe about her. Love the Slayers (you're making me want to watch Krull again lol) and the dino's new base is great. Nice work on all these!

Cheers Matt. I think Gary Morley did a good job on Oola, and she was a pleasure to paint. I've still got two more grey slayers to post, and then will work on the trio of white guard slayers during the AHPC. Glad you like the dino, as I'm hoping to re-base my decade old collection throughout the next month or so.

Oola turned out great Simon, as have the slayers, and good to hear the dinosaur was an easy fix after rebasing

Thanks Dave. Got a few more weeks to clear out all these old(ish) projects, so expect more Slayers and Judge Dredd minis up until the start of the AHPC.


I'm still not sure whether I just lucked out on the same colour combo for the dinosaur or not. But I don't think I was using "Vallejo" paints ten years ago, so it was probably just a nice lucky accident. More re-based dinos to come too.
