New Judge Characters now available

May 22, 2008

We’ve just released a new Judge Characters Premium Content Pack that is available for download in the Antics Content Warehouse.

Judge Characters

These characters will be great for any court room scenes. You might want to use them in legal reconstructions or even sentencing outlaws that your Police Characters have brought to justice!

If there’s any content packs that you would like to see in future then please let us know over in the Content Wishlist area of the forum.

Enjoy!
