Off the Bones 4 Fan Favorites expansion, the Hell Hounds. Woof woof. Three surprisingly cute massive hellish hot dogs, with lavacracks and all. And they have spiked collars with a massive ring on the top. And very obviously male. Those are the Dogs' Bollocks! Again, these do look better IRL than in the blown up pictures. Much better, to my eyes at least. How to paint lava-look minis: Start with a stark white basecoat. Drybrush the following colours starting with heavy pressure to lighter pressure with the darker colours: Bright yellow, g
