Dog Days

I knocked these out the other night after finishing up the fountain and ruins projects:

I think they are old Ral Partha sculpts, I'm not entirely sure. I've had them in the 'never get used' box for a handful of years.

I've made a tradition the last couple years of contributing to the participation game hosted by Frothers Unite! every year at the Salute convention in London. Obviously getting to the show its self would be quite an undertaking for me, but they are always in need of miniautures to use in the group games, and I enjoy being able to contribute from a far to the fun of a group of gaming miscreants who make life on the internet talking about figures so enjoyable.

This year the game is Frotherheim, a Mordheim-esque warband bash/adventure against other bands and NPCs. The idea is that the members them selves can play, as well as have warbands available for other attendees to command as they drop by the table. The rule set is being used is Songs of Blades and Heroes, which seems like a good choice for good playable fun without getting to involved, nor too simplistic. I was going to paint a band for guests to play, but I lost interest in what I had in mind, so instead I decided to help bulk out the denizens of Frotherheim, and ensure there was some interesting nasties to take chunks out of the players. These hounds are the first in a small pile of critters that I'll be sending over.

More to come, in between other projects.
