I found these fantastic minis at Warlord Games in the Ancient Britons range. I’ve always fancied painting some and the Ancient Britons range fascinates me, but two things have always stopped me from buying any. 1. I don’t have any interest in any of their oppononts, except maybe the Picts but I don’t have enough knowledge of the period to know if they were around at the same times. 2. I don’t have any interest in the period or style of warfare.
So I will use the dogs in my zombie games, because everyone knows dogs aren’t affect by the stuff that turns you into zombies.
I’d like to get a variety of colors for the dogs (I plan to add more) but I have to figure out what other colors are realistic choices. This color scheme is what modern mastiffs are bred for. A quick check on wikipedia just now shows I have a few other options. I was curious how well my meat-fisted attempt at the “masking” of the eyes, snout, and ears would turn out, but I’m pretty happy with it.
