This Strider from Mantic is made for their game Dead Zone. It is a type of plastic and comes with an MDF base and is around 65mm tall. Painting the detail so that you can keep finding small bits of interest when you look around it was fun. No decals on this one. The armoured glass for the operator has a subtle tint from lighter to darker that gets a little lost in the images and also because i gave it several coats of gloss. Here is an alternative back story for it.
In Judge Dredd’s future Earth outside the walls of the American Mega Citys lies the polluted Atomic wasteland known as The Cursed Earth. Mega City Citizens sometimes get the idea to go on a Hell Trek and journey across the Cursed Earth to start or join a frontier type settlement. Hell Trekkers can face a vast number of obstacles such as large Dinosaurs, mutant attacks, disease and other craziness. What we see here is images of a 'Slay-omatic Triple 6' for self defence and obstacle removal. Used correctly it can be a handy tool to clear the way for any Hell Trek convoy.
This model from the Scott Ian Block Hell Trekkers Club comes armed with an ‘Incinerator XXXXL” for extra big jobs.
It also also armed with a ‘Slice & Dice Mk 9’ for large meaty problems and more. The shoulder on that arm is also a handy place to place two rockets that can be armed with a number of warhead types including fast acting Anthraxogone.
