“The German Defensive Plan Involved Infantry Formations…”

“…Holding the defensive line along the coast, with an armoured reserve held further inland.”

These four plastic 15mm miniatures are sold by “Battlefront Miniatures” and can be found inside the company’s “Hit The Beach” starter set for “Flames Of War”. The figures consist of four riflemen. Together they form the penultimate MG34 and K98 Rifle team I require for my (maximum-strength) German Panzergrenadier Platoon.


As with all my other “FoW” German soldiers, the figures were initially super-glued onto wooden strips, before being primed in “Vallejo” German Fieldgrey WWII, shaded using “Citadel” Nuln Oil, and dry-brushed with (more) “Vallejo” German Fieldgrey WWII. Their details were then ‘picked out’ predominantly using “Vallejo” Heavy Sienna, Gunmetal, Buff, German Camouflage Dark Green, Heavy Brown and a series of “Citadel” Shades.

Judge Dredd and a Street Judge tackle a Mob Blitzer, whilst Nero Narcos watches on.

With my latest German Panzergrenadiers finished, I managed to pay a visit to the LVL Up Gaming Store in Bournemouth so as to play-test some homemade 28mm Judge Dredd rules. On this occasion I brought along some figures taken from my long OOP “Judge Dredd: The Miniatures Games” collection by "Mongoose Publishing", and some pre-painted terrain from the Industrial Range by “TableScape”.


The opening skirmish was a simple playtest through some ‘streets’ to see whether the rules and statistics actually worked, and involved a couple of Judge patrols, led by Dredd and Giant respectively, dealing with a gun-toting Mob Blitzer. This was a pretty straightforward win for the Justice Department, even though the armoured robotic crime boss Nero Narcos made a sudden appearance early on and momentarily looked set to cause Judge Giant’s inexperienced Street Judges a few problems.

Judge Dekker battles Judge Death as Justice Department reinforcements come running.

The next scenario involved locating a key witness, and moving them to a secret safe house. This particular mission was made all the harder as it took place during a zombie uprising amongst Mega-City One’s citizens. Once again Giant’s patrol seemed to have things well in hand until a Zombie Mistress materialised to help urge on her Undead horde, and resulted in one of the Senior Judges getting chomped to bits.


To make matters worse, Judge Death decided to pay the futuristic metropolis a visit too and immediately began stalking Judge Dekker. The resultant fire-fight was a lot of fun, as a handful of Street Judges rushed over to the side of Dredd’s old rookie to give her a helping lawgiver or three. Ultimately, the Dark Judge remained intact, but the witness was safely stored away – giving the Justice Department its second victory of the day…

Another great group of German soldiers! Really like these minis a lot.

Those Judge Dredd minis look great in action. There is something awesome about street judges fighting against impossible odds. Great stuff!

Cheers Undercoat. Slowly working my way through my FoW Germans.


The Judge Dredd games were great, and we've already played a few more. So expect some reinforcements from this long-retired range should my weekly challenges permit it.

Cheers Roger.

Thanks Roger. Trying to mix-up the German postings with something a bit different - like the AARs - otherwise I fear this site will currently turn into an endless series of postings showing very similar FoW minis being painted in precisely the same way, LOL.

The Germans are as excellent as always, and the Judge Dredd games look like a ton of fun! The minis are also superb.

Cheers Planetmut. Hopefully the first 50pts of Germans will be finished during October, and there's more Judge Dredd AARs to come as I've played a few more games already.

Thanks Dave. Ploughing through the Germans, and much more Mega-City One gaming to come as we've played a few more games - plus I've some new additions painted up too.
