From PaulJ: 28mm Hell Hounds for Strange Aeons (10 points)



Paul is off for Christmas and then going with his son to a Boy Scout jamboree in New Zealand so sends this entry in as his parting shot before he returns to us after the holiday season.

From Paul:
This is a pair of Hell Hounds which I will use for Pulp Horror skirmish gaming with the Strange Aeons rules.  I really like these figures by Heresy Miniatures and while I originally intended to use the standard heads, I loved these alternate ones which conjure images from the Aliens movies.  

They are scaled for 28mm gaming but are quite large and stand 32mm and 42mm in height.  They are wonderfully dynamic figs and I specially used a small lipped base for one to make it look like it couldn't be contained and was 'escaping' it, as it had another dimension.   Well thats was my intention anyway!

Very cool! They have bodies that remind me of  the 'Gatekeeper' demonic hounds in 'Ghostbusters'. I agree with you Paul, the addition of the eyeless Alien heads really amps up the creep factor. 

These two hounds will give Paul 10 points. Enjoy your holidays and your vacation!

    2. HaHa! Nice one styx. Don't you worry, MilesR will start swinging hard soon. Nonetheless, I do find it interesting that my largest readership is, by far, from the USA but oddly the Yanks comment the least. Perhaps they don't want to encourage yet another Canadian loudmouth (or they're from the NSA). :)

  9. Giant Demon Dogs don't need no eyes when they can smell your rancid soul.
    Cool figures and a great finish. Great idea with the base size.
