Hi everyone, Now that the contest is over, here are more pictures of my converted 77038, Hell Hound. The original sculpt is by Ben Siens. This was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Convert and Paint contest. Khan is my elf riding dog in our D&D campaign. The contest was the perfect pretexte to make this conversion. I first removed all the spikes and flames on the hound's back. I then built the armor and saddle using green stuff and a paperclip. The chest is from Reaper's 02638, adventuring accessories. There were amazing entries in the contest and I managed to get an honorable mention. Thanks to Reaper miniatures and Matthew Clark for organizing this contest.
So, one of the characters in my AD&D game is a halfling fighter who has acquired a riding dog. While the character's mini is relatively easy (I'm using Bailey Silverbell, because close enough - armored halflings are hard to find, female ones worse, and specifically banded mail?), I've strangely been having trouble finding a mounted halfling, let alone a dog big enough to be a riding dog. (There's one 25-28mm halfling mounted on a dog that I can find, one of the Wizard's pre-paints). So I'm looking for a decent-sized dog, although preferably not a mastiff (that's not a show-stopper) that's big enough to represent a decent mount relative to Bailey. I've looked at Garr and the guard dogs pack from Reaper, and Garr might work, but is a bit noble, and the guard dogs are too aggressive (the dog has so far been a bit of a lovable goof - more like the big dog from Kiki's Delivery Service, actually, than a Ferocious Attack Dog). So, obviously, there's always leeway in trying to find the right figure for a character, and concessions are nearly always made. But anyone have any other options that might be doable, for a large dog - or know of someone actually producing mounted halflings that might work?
