There’s a new line of miniatures and games coming for the legendary 2000 AD. Warlord Games has secured a worldwide license based on the characters from the weekly comic; this includes Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Nemesis the Warlock and the rest.
It’s early days yet but it’s believed that the popular post-apocalyptic series Strontium Dog may be one of the first to get the game treatment.
Head of Product at Warlord Games, Paul Sawyer, told press;
“Many of us at Warlord are ardent 2000 AD fans so the chance to take on a licence to work with the stories we grew up with and continue to avidly enjoy was something of a dream come true. We have many ideas to bring the wonderful stories from our favourite strips – old and new – to the tabletop and work has begun in earnest to do justice (pun intended) to Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Flesh, Sláine, Kingdom and many of their sister strips. Although development of our plans and designs are in very early stages we hope the first game to see the light of day will be set in the world of Strontium Dog, Johnny Alpha – we’ll divulge more details in coming weeks and months though. If a mere Earthlet might dare to quote The Mighty Tharg: this is going to be scrotnig!”
Warlord is currently developing games for Doctor Who, under license from the BBC, and has its own sci-fi series Beyond the Gates of Antares from veteran designer Rick Priestley.
