Des chiens, dogs und Hunde.

A big part of the hobby to me is digging through illustrations (of whom Michael Bartling seems to have a never ending stream off).

I really always liked the images where dogs accompany uniformed men, or even take action in one way or another. I even bought a Sheppard-set from Foundry just to get my hands on the dog.
I used him with this formation of frenchman.

I soon came to realize that I wanted more dogs on my battlefields and spoke to Michael Bartling about it. We tried to find dog-races that would work in the 7yw too.

You'll see a release of Napoleonic era dogs in the beginning of next year.


Il est gris et triste.

The son exclaimed "he's eating his face!" -  I think it's a touching image.

River-crossing

Again quite touching.

Healthy peasant with his dog.

Wealthy peasant with his dogs.

Well-known picture.  :--)

I love the facial exression of the riding bloke.

A Hunters dog.


I hope you liked the images.

    1. The good thing about cats is that they really haven't changed too much during the last 2000 years. Thank you for the suggestion.

  6. I am a huge lover of hounds so this comes as good news. Warlord Games has some very nice English Mastiffs and Wolfhounds in their collection. I've also seen some great looking dogs from railway accessories. Nonetheless, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  10. Hi Alex,

    na herzlichen Dank! Das heisst ich habe schon 2 Nominierungen. Ich verstehe den Preis aber nicht wirklich um ehrlich zu sein.

    K.A. wann wie und wo ich was posten muss etc. Mir sagts ja aber auch keiner. :--)

    Vielleicht kannst Du mir ja helfen.

    VG,

    Kawe
