Woof.  I've no idea what the art is supposed to look like, but those proxies would look cool on any table I play on.  Good find.

Gah.  I just had a visual of Little Pet Shop dogs with their big eyes advancing on their enemies.  Creepy.

If sing, sang, and sung, sink, sank, and sunk, and drink, drank, and drunk, how is it that it isn't bring, brang, and brung, think, thank and thunk, and ding, dang, and dung?

Don't even get me started about bad, badder and baddest.  Run, ran AND run...again?  C'mon!

Couple of Necromunda Enforcer Iron Mastiffs on Ebay - but current bid (as of last night) was approx 6 bucks each.

The little shapes in their eyes tell you what kind of attacks they have!

Also D&D minis...I present the Nessian Warhound!



I know, I know.  The fig doesn't scream 'mastiff ', but hey, it looks feral and ****ed (in the American sense of the word, for all you across the pond)!

The War Dog from Warmachine could be a nice proxy as well.
