    Kroot Hounds convert ideas

    Hey, I have about 40 Kroot hounds in my army, but so far I have just been using Lizardmen Skinks as hounds.

    The Kroot hounds do not look great, and they are very expensive to buy (I would need 20 blister packs!)

    Does anyone have any ideas for a good model choice for Kroot hounds that look better and are less expensive?

    Dont see why converted Saurus wouldnt work. Use saurus Bodies and heads and modle them on all fours.

    mordheim guard dogs. 3$ each ... they look like bull dogs, are a little smaller than kroot hounds but wider bodied. and they have a spiked collar! << looks sweet 8Y best yet i believe they are still games workshop so would be legal in a tourney. if this works out for you hit that little rep button :happy:

    If you're decent with greenstuff then you can convert Kroot directly into hounds. Greenstuff the torso at a right angle to the legs/hips, cut the rifle out of the arms and snip the mohawk off (save it). Attach the back of the head to the torso and the 'mohawk' to the middle of the back. Use greenstuff to make the mohawk into a hound's dorsal fin, lengthen the head's beak and put claws on the front hands. You may want to repose the limbs.

    It takes some effort but it's the cheapest way I know of to get them. An alternative is some of the Hellhound models made by Reaper Miniatures. They'll still cost about $4 per model, though, and won't blend in with the Kroot. (I find Reaper is an excellent place to find alternative figures in general.)
