Hound of the Baskervilles!

Time for another demon doggie from Privateer Press.

Just like the other Circle puppies, I had to play around with some subtle changes in the reds here to get some shape, while still matching previously painted figures.

This is an interesting case where I actually liked the plastic versions more than the metal.  In particular, this guy was very nice.  Even though the mould lines were in some unusual places, I liked the pose, and the way the faces and fur were sculpted.

Ironically, the cool colors of the snow are helpful, since they make even the coolest reds still seem warm!


  1. I like the fact that you've started painting Warmachine & Hordes, and especially Circle as that is mostly what I paint and play. Regarding this figur, I wonder why you choose to paint the armour plates red as well? For me the figure gets a bit too red and I think that it would have looked better with the grey you used on the head plates.

    1. Thanks! The color choice is not my own, since this is a commission piece. I had to match what another painter had done with previous figures. If the choice was mine, I would do a different color for the armor as well! :-)
