Modelling hounds
« on: June 19, 2006, 03:59:18 PM »
In my CoU army, I'm planning to fit 10 hounds (2x5) in my 750 point list.  Any ideas for models I could use?  I was also thinking of making them actual wolves rather than trained dogs, but I don't know if any wolf models are good for this.  Any thoughts?

i simply used the goblin wolf riders for this purpose,

also a damn good reason to start O&G
(not for me as i gave the rest of the models to my little brother, who already plays the little green suckers....)

Good ole Goblin Wolf Riders.  The wolves can be used for so many different units in this game.  I use mine for DoW Light cavalry.  No riders...just nasty wolves.

The wolves are a good choice. There's also the war hounds from the Mordheim range:

But personally, I like the look of the wolves better.

I think the goblin range wolves are your best bet.  There are also a couple of war hounds from the wood Elf range

The Goblin Wolf Riders will be the cheapest bet, since you get 10 Wolvies in one box.. And the models look great! :-D

As an added bonus, the goblins in the wolf rider box come with the components needed to make perfect foot goblins. One box set gives you enough for ten dogs and ten goblins. That ain't bad.

The farmer Maggot blister comes with three dogs. :wink:
A bit small perhaps.
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

They are. I had a look into it recently, and they look too small.

The wolves are a good choice, like Pierced et al said. I like the gobline legs you get with it. Put on a free company body and some shortened arms and an appropriate head and you have some halfling riders. I put 2 on a warhorse - one sitting at the back with a bow, the one up the front with a spear. Good alternative for fast cav and themically themed for a stirland army.

I also have the Mordheim dogs that came with the Witch Hunter box.  Those are great models too, very mean looking.  Although with metal, more expensive.

And depending on where you are very hard to obtain. In Aus, if we want those mini's we have to order than from Mail Order, as Mordheim isn't really that available anymore.  :-(

I have 15 Mordheim Hounds.  They came three per blister so I used five packs to make my units.  Photos of them used to be on the old site, but alas those are gone.
