Once upon a time there was a not Judge Dredd......


Sci Fi films and books have been copied mercilessly throughout the years within the miniatures industry so it was with great joy I came upon an old 80's Tabletop Games' Laserburn miniature 'LB100 Law Officer with pistol'. Sculpted by a slightly younger Bob Olley who was also responsible for a number of pieces in this range......Tony Ackland providing the rest. Pics of most can be found on the Lost Minis WIKI here


Also a pic of the 'LB102 Law Officer on bike' courtesy of my good friend Vincent.


Whatever was Bob thinking of when he designed these? I am quite desperate for the bike variant so please think of me if you come across one.....

Another good example from the Laserburn range is the Szithks war bird by Mr Ackland...lovely stuff.


15mm versions of most are now available again via Alternative Armies here. The smaller scale aliens were sculpted by the legend that is Tony Yates, may he live long and prosper. Alternative Armies has also dug out some of the 25mm molds for the Tony Acklands pirates along with the old Asgard Space Marines here. Don't, of course, confuse their Space Marines with the Games Workshop trademarked version.......after all, these were only released beforehand.....

As always give me a shout on deartonyblair@virginmedia.com

That 25mm war bird looks fantastic. Hope that someone will re-release it.
