Strontium Dog

Warlord has released its new game, Strontium Dog. Strontium Dog has always been one of my favourite 2000AD comics. It always had the right blend of good storylines, nerdy and quirky humour, and a good scifi setting. Along with Rogue Trooper, it was obviously one of the main influences for the original Warhammer 40K Rogue Trader game.

My Rogue Trooper and Strontium Dog volumes in my personal library.
Other than Judge Dredd, probably the most famous 2000AD character, I think Strontium Dog lends itself very well to a miniatures game. Actually, our own Antares 2401 campaign was started with the Strontium Dog universe in mind. Strontium Dog has always been very much mission and adventure oriented. We once tried the Judge Dredd roleplaying game back in the 90s. It was not a success - everyone was using Judge Dredd quotes all the time. That was it. No plot, no game, and I still feel bad for the GM who was a huge Judge Dredd fan at the time. It might be different in the combat-oriented Strontium Dog universe.

So, will I be getting this game? Hell yeah! If not to play it, just for haves. I'll probably buy a box and some other stuff at Crisis 2018.


  1. 2000AD was brilliant! Slaine.. he was pretty good as well. Strontium Dog, ABC Warriors and JD far as I remember they crossed into each others stories..possibly all could be made into one big game Setting.

  2. I've loved Stronty Dog since it first appeared in Starlord, before it got merged into 2000AD. And the ABC Warriors (also their previous incarnation as RoBusters).

    I got given the start set on Wednesday and picked up some of the packs at Colours today.
