This is Lee's first Challenge and he opens it with a bang with this wonderful figure of The Judge.
I bought this model a few weeks ago when I visited the Foundry factory/shop during Blog-Con. As a kid I was always more into British Comics like 2000AD rather than the DC or Marvel variety and so I am much more familiar with characters like Dredd or Rouge Trooper than I am with Spiderman or the Avengers. So when I saw this model I just had to buy it for inclusion in the Challenge.
The figure is quite large, standing 32mm from foot to eye and 36mm overall. This larger scale combined with the fact that it is made from white metal gives this model a nice hefty feel when you pick it up. Frankly casting Dredd cast in plastic or resin would just be wrong.
I went for strong highlights and bright colours rather than the subdued hues that are seen in some illustrations. While I loved the new Dredd film that came out last year, you just can't beat the original look of the uniform from the comic, complete with gold plated body armour.
Great work Lee (love that last photo)! I agree, Dredd should be in metal - the heavier the better. I also really like the bold colours that you've gone with for him - brilliant stuff.
As Dredd is basically a 40mm figure I'm giving Lee 7 points for his efforts. Thanks for debuting him with us Lee and welcome to the Challenge!
