Yeah, those you can get from Mega Miniatures  :wink:


No, I am pretty certain none of the foxhounds is from MM.

This one is.

No, I meant the wall trophies! They have some in their Dungeon Decor line, all humanoid heads on wall plaques  :lol:

Guess one of those could be made into a Laird by adding a greenstuff bonnet, and maybe a monocle  :roll:

The first pair of dogs are old Grenadier dogs that originally accompanied a Nick Lund Ranger figure in a blister pack.

This is an excellent set of figures, well done!

Ok, here it is, and I am probably sticking my neck out a bit, since most Lead Adventurers seem to be cat people.


I do have a cat, but only reason for not having a dog also, is the fact that I live in a rented house  :wink:

Anyway, I put this together because I simply have a thing for painting dogs.


Really? You can paint some of mine, if you like?!  :P

Another boy and his dog:



Günther, Frieherr von Fitzenstrahl with his Schäferhunde "Brunette".

von Fitzenstrahl is the Cultural Attaché at the German Embassy in London but regularely rents a house in Monimasket during the festival season to be at a convenient distance to Edinburgh. There he promotes seminares on Dresden porcelain and Blackforrest cuckoo clocks.

As an old horseman himself (5th Preussia Totenkopf Regiment), he is a popular guest at the Scots Greys officers club at Edinburgh castle. A keen amatuer photographer, he has always seen taking pictures of his officer friends and the castle surroundings.

Through his regimental contacts he has gained guest membership in DoNKCoM with his Altasian Brunette.

By the way, August von Mackensen must be the coolest looking officer serving during WWI:

Guess he was an officer of the 'black hussars' (I do not remember the name of the regiment)?

von Mackensen's "home" regiment was the Preussian 1st "Totenkopf" Hussar regiment.

Apparently it all started with the death of the Duke of Wolfenbuttel. His whole regiment change colors to black and put a big silver deaths head on their caps to honor him. The idea caught on and other hussar and ulan regiments did the same.

Romanitc? Macabre?
