With all the Skirmish figures I have been painting it was only a matter of time until I painted at least one unit with no discernible purpose. This is a hound master and three mastiffs from Warlord Games. My son wanted me to paint up a dog to go with one of his figures a few years back, so I thought I would add some 28mm hounds to the mix as well. I really like the look of the Mastiff sculpts and will inevitably have to come up with an excuse to use them.
I tried to go with a black-gold effect on the fur of the darker Mastiff, it game out darker than I wanted and the color is completely washed out in these photos. I should probably do some Wolfhounds for authenticity, but I would love to find some Basset hounds in this scale..
