Who let the dogs out?




When ordering up the wonderfully grotesque additions to the ever expanding zombie hoard from 'Tengu Miniatures' (see 'Everyday, I'm shuffling') my eyes fell upon these additions to their range.




 Entitled ‘Hell Hounds’ they include ‘Scube’ a Great Dane, ‘Toby’ the Rottweiler and ‘Zeus’ the Bull Terrier; I have absolute no idea why, but for some inexplicable reason my mouse hovered for far too long over the ‘add to basket’ button and in a moment of insanity/weakness they were in! 

All very Charlie's Angels!
Great sculpts in all their goriness and quite satisfying to paint up. Once again I went for a fairly predictable colour palette with the possible exception of the Great Dane who just had to be painted up as the rotting alter ego to ‘Baskerville’ from the ‘secret project’ collection.

  6. Truly grotesque, you have painted these to a T sir. I'm trying to resist expanding my own horde via Tengu at the moment, please stop providing such temptation.

    1. I'm sorry about the temptation, but they really are very good and the service is sensational.

  7. Very well done. You should really get your dogs a Pet Plan - they don't look too well.

    1. Thank you Robert, the painting owes much to the quality of the sculpts though.

  14. Great paintjob, but I think 'nice' is not a word I would describe your dogs with. I think intimidating is more spot on in this special case.

  15. Michael,

    I fell off the chair laughing when I saw the Rotty was named Toby - surely Tith would be a better name! Sorry folks, village in-joke there.

    1. I do hope you haven't bruised anything important! It certainly brought a wry smile to my face as well!

    2. And thanks to you, I remembered an answer in tonight's village quiz - what was the name of the dog in Punch and Judy - Toby.

  19. When you put that fig up against normal Scooby the horror of what he'd become became truly apparent. You're mind is a strange and beautiful place Michael Awdry:)

  20. Unusual miniaturs but a usually great paintjob, Michael.

    I'm following your zombie project with great concern.
