Citadel Judge Dredd Perps Part 10

Borag Thungg Earthlet,
Wow two years I have been working on this Judge Dredd Perps project doing one on one off, each time I finish a batch of these start work on something else just to clear the air then come back to these and I feel am making good progress.  Today I have my latest batch of eleven miniatures completed to show you.


A motley crew

Again all are from the Citadel Miniatures 1985-87 JD3 - Perps & Muties code.

1. 'Bonehead Mcgraw' is a character that I am sure I know from world of Dredd but I couldn't remember her in any prog so she might be a daily star strip character, she did appear on Cliff Robinson 'Justice Is Just Around the Corner' poster in prog 407, I kind wish I had found the poster out before I painted the miniature as I would of tried to match up the colours, she is armed with a shotgun and wears a horned helmet adorned with a skull.

2. 'Dib' this one would fit in nicely with the Angel gang or any band of cursed earth deparados, I went for basic colours for this one blue denim and butternut to try and give him that deep south confederate feel, he is a variant of the mutie 'Skink'.

3. 'Spug Splatt' I painted this unfortunately named miniature (Spug is a profanity in Judge Dredd universe) as rastafarian citizen I think his braided hair made the decision easy, I have seen many 'dreads' over the years in JD strips, some in wally squads, I can imagine him now screaming "ahhh! babylon as Dredd nails him with a ricochet bullet", this one is a variant of Citizen Hetfield.

4. Here we have a rare Slaughter Margin scenario miniature 'Hoshiwara/Shomenko' or 'Yakusa', I know little about this miniature, don't think I own any variants across my citadel collection but it might still be waiting to be discovered, armed with Katana, swanky suit and tie, he has the obligatory samurai sideburns.

5. Next is 'Theobald Wen', it appears he is holding his diary, I tried painting the word in to the sculpting but it was so old and rough it was a struggle. His story is yet to be told, also variant of mutie Brother Gomorrah.

6. This one is a 'Scrawler' a Mega City graffiti artist, I like this one as he actually leans forward so would be great perched against walls, I did paint another scrawler 'Bel' so I think I am going to pair them up.

7. Next is 'Solo' who is a variant of 'Security' with the head of 'Citi-Def Attacking' miniature and the Paranoia range 'Guard Officer'.

8. We have here 'Chapman Pincher' not a character name from Judge Dredd but again like many others named after a Mega Block (See Block Mania - Prog 238), I believe he is based on the character 'Faceache' of the Zits gang in the story 'West Side Rumble' see 2000AD prog 434I love this guy he is so fugly and beat up I will be adding him to mob of unarmed perps.

9. Next up is 'Lambreta' there have been other characters named Lambreta with wide gangster hats in progs later than when this miniature was sculpted so I have nothing to tell except he is a Ape gang variant.

10. Perpolito/Unlisted Perp, this miniature is a bit of an enigma as it does not appear on any of the Citadel Miniatures advert pages, Jason Basin is pictured twice under the name Perpolito, as this one is the only unnamed perp I think it is obvious as Jason wears a basin helmet.  The miniature could be a attempt at  Filmore Faro as he has that strange hook or riding crop weapon and the outfit matches so we are only missing the pan on head (for more of Filmore see 'The Judge Child' story).


Perpolito

11. Lastly we have 'Flinn Shaver' I don't recall this character, she appears to be a bedraggled Futsie with a axe, when I started painting her torso it started to appear to look like a straight jacket so maybe she broke out of a Kook cude.

If you know something I don't about any of these characters please tell me I would love to know more, sculptors, JD stories and especially Daily Star strips.

Here is a progress report, still lots to do




Follow me on Twitter @fuljason for some live action from the paint station, lots going on.

Thanks for stopping by, Florix Grabundae

  2. This is an amazing blogpost. This is the first time I've seen most of these figures painted up, and it really brings out the detail (like the underboob on Bonehead McGraw). It's really inspiring me to paint up the Perps lurking in the lead mountain.

    1. Thanks Curis, painting they are quick easy wins, the underboob is mental but thats the beauty of this range you can interpret their gear in so many differnt ways, thanks for enjoying I am going to start another big batch in a couple of months.
