Galen DeMarco and Travis Perkins from the new range of Judge Dredd Miniatures by Mongoose Miniatures.I was quite looking forward to getting DeMarco. I like her character. However I was a little disappointed at first when the model arrived. I had hoped she would look more like this:
(shorter coat, with trims and shoulder pads, trousers that show her ankles, chunky trainers, hair style, cute face with big eyes).
Heres the original (image from Mongoose):

So heres my attempt:
I've tried to give the model some of the details based on the comic above. Things like the trim on the coat and trainers instead of boots. I can't get it to match completely without some heavy converting. I painted her eyes slightly large (I hate painting eyes! Too fiddly) and gave her freckles. Overall I like the final result. The gun was painted with a District 9 colours in mind, not sure if it works though. I might repaint it or even just replace it with a big ass revolver or something.
I got the Judge Dredd rulebook through today, so I hope to get some more 2000 AD miniatures painted up soon. Then I can try them out in a game.
