As previously noted my primary objective this year is painting up a chaos/evil warband. These Chaos Hounds are part of that.
GW’s hounds seem to have been cross bred/cross mutated with other species. As well as canine I can see boar, a hint of hyena and maybe even some lion in these, all with horny growths and minor mutations.
My next regiment should be a unit of Chaos Cultists. These will be based on the Empire Flagellant boxed set with some kit bashing to lose the ‘Sigmar’s Sadhus’ feel of the original miniatures.
