If my opinion ruled the world (yes, I think it should, why?), those would be perfect!
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!

I think that D&D nessian warhound is a Large figure.

But I'm not positive on that.

True true, those from starship troopers looks ok for iron mastives. Here's a photo:


But I'm going to order from ralpartha:


And convert them a little. maybe they are not mastiffs but I find them great in my army. And they are quite cheap.

Next idea is:

Warhound from Custom Made Minis (http://www.custommademinis.com) but its quite exensive (3.60 € for one)

I think using the starship trooper ones above woulg be easier (bases the same) but the one you plan on using looks better IMHO.

Pictures in the book do not always equal descriptions/back stories. I think any of the above will work. Depends upon what you nac get and how much converting you want to do.

Hi!

Have you seen the Vendel Miniatures Mastiffs? they work out at 1 each and come in quite nice poses...

They look nice, but for us poor cheapskates in the US it's 1 pound sterling for the figure and twenty for shipping!
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!
