Judgement Day Post 35 - Odysseus Jones

The Judgement Day project that Cheetor and I were working on has moved into the background over the last couple of months as other projects have drawn our attention. It is not dead, however, as both of us are Judge Dredd nuts and we'll invariably come back to add models to our collections. There are several new Sov sculpts I have an eye on, for example.

So, with that in mind, we've decided to make the project more casual. We are keeping the numbering system that we were using to see how far this may get over the years. It's also to keep everything under the Judgement Day umbrella. It won't be tag though, so I or Cheetor may submit 3 minis in a row before the other adds in a new model, for example. Here, after something of a pause, if Judgement Day 35, Odysseus Jones, undercity gang member.

This latest entry for Judgement Day is a mini close to my heart, from Mark Copplestones' phenomenal Future Wars range. You can still get many of these mins from EM4 and Copplestone Castings. They are a teeny bit small compared to today's minis, but that bothers me not a jot, as they are an exceptional range.

This fellow spent many years fighting across the gaming tables of my youth. Leading a motley crew of outcasts and criminals, Odysseus fought across cities, death worlds and drifting cargo ships. Eventually he was retired to storage, and has been there ever since. So it was very satisfying INDEED to rescue him from stasis and finally paint this 28mm hero of my gaming days of yore. Given a new lease of life, I expect Odysseus to appear everywhere from the darkness of Mega City One's undercity to the urban sprawl of a Rogue Trader hive world in the next few years. 

He just needs to get the old gang back together.


  1. Really nice. Should be able to have some fun in Mega City One by Grud!

    1. Thanks a lot! He needs some of his gang to boss about, but painting more Copplestone minis is nothing but a pleasure.

  2. Great work! Really love those oldschool models.
    I painted whole EM4 scavengers gang recently =)

    1. Thanks Demi. The scavengers are a really great range, I have a tub of them awaiting some painting love!
