I mean, well, every post apocalyptic boy needs his dog, right? Even the 15mm boys.

Even the "legendary" PA guys have their dogs . . .

And, in the Terminator world, didn't they help us identify robots by smelling the ones with synthetic skin?

Or we may just find ourselves having to fight off packs of dogs for scraps, in a post apocalyptic world.

So . . . who manufactures dogs for 15mm gaming?

Thanks.

Rebel minis has Zombie Dogs that would work fine for post apocalyptic and maybe even as normal dogs since the Zombie aspect is not too noticeable. Splintered light has some dogs with a handler in their historical range as well as a pack of wolves in their miscellaneous section (along with some other cool critters like Terror Birds). You could contact David McBride of Splintered Light to see if you could purchase some dogs separately. Splintered Light also has a lizard that looks like some type of dog in the lizardmen pack. It would make a cool alien or post apocalyptic dog since it has three eyes.

These Elhiem dogs are supposed to be for 20mm, right?

I wonder if the size difference will be too drastic.

Jeff,

Wow. I guess I had never looked at the Rebel Minis' zombie dogs at all:

Could easily be made to look as a normal dog.

Minifigs makes a pack of 15mm dogs as does Irregular.

I use these and they work great with Rebel Minis 15mm.

Ed,

Would HO work better than N scale? The ones in your link seem to be N scale.

Thanks.

Irregular Miniatures has some dogs in their 15mm animals range

egoodlander13 Jan 2010 8:36 p.m. PST

splintered lights wolves can easily be painted up as larger german shepherds or you can get the wardogs from the medieval irish set and just put the handler in the spares box. very nice irish wolfhounds.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP13 Jan 2010 8:38 p.m. PST

Wow. Those Splintered Light dogs look beautiful. Must get them.

Kyote and Hrothgar, I guess I'd never looked at Irregular's animal range before:

link

Zeelow, I certainly didn't know that Peter Pig had any dogs at all:

Thanks.

Dan
PS. By the way, I can't seem to find any 15mm dogs in the Minifigs website.

There are 8 legged dogs in the Martian Empires range:

momoiro kakaricho Inactive Member13 Jan 2010 9:30 p.m. PST

Museum Miniatures makes some decent dogs.

wolvermonkey Inactive Member13 Jan 2010 9:48 p.m. PST

15mm.co.uk makes a 15mm dog also. I only know cuz they put 1 in my 15mm sci-fi sampler bag.

Lovejoy13 Jan 2010 11:38 p.m. PST

Scotia Grendel have some 15mm dogs coming soon – Mastiffs and Wolfhounds.

I've got a bunch of the 15mm.co.uk ones. They look fine.

Irregular makes lots of different animals in various scales.

Rdfraf Supporting Member of TMP14 Jan 2010 8:28 a.m. PST

I found that that HO scale dogs in the model railroading shop work nicely.

SgtPain14 Jan 2010 10:54 a.m. PST

I used the Guard dog from the Laserburn line available from " link " . In my option, a lot of figures in this Laserbburn line are useful for a post apocalyptic / Fallout game. The thugs, police, civilian and some some of the power armor figures are real useful.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Thanks, SgtPain.

melfortuk14 Jan 2010 1:38 p.m. PST

forgive my old age,(a craft moment), but, a manufacturer who produced a large range of border reiver figures in 15mm, has two lots of dogs, bassett and foxhounds.

if I remember the name I will repost.

Here's a (not very large) photo of the 15mm.co.uk dog next to a Dreadnought figure.

Who let the dogs out?

Are dogs even used in modern warfare for anything other than guard duty and tracking?

I know there were historians that have recently written about Romans using dog packs in big battles.

Any cyber-dogs?
I remember an anime Battle for Moon base Dallos, the security forces unleashed a large wave a dogs with cyber implants in them against the rebel troops.

Etranger14 Jan 2010 5:11 p.m. PST

The Russians used dogs as anti tank weapons in WWII, albeit not terribly successfully & they're used in mine detection work. Wiki for a useful summary link & a bit more on mine dogs here link Battlefront make them in 15mm IIRC.

corona66 Supporting Member of TMP15 Jan 2010 10:59 a.m. PST

Attention Melfortuk,the company name you were looking for is East Riding Miniatures. For my money the best figures are Splintered Light's mastiffs (early Saxon range) and wolfhounds (Scots-Irish).

melfortuk15 Jan 2010 12:49 p.m. PST

sorry , I have just remembesed, mainly bedause I have just checked my models, that they are bassets and bloodhounds. not foxhounds. and they are by ERM

Malcolm

Update:

I received the Peter Pig dogs and, I must say, they look perfect. Three different types:

peterpig.co.uk/scenery.htm

A couple could pass for mutts/mongrels, which is precisely what you would expect to happen.

Not really. The only dogs I've seen in military service are German Shepherds for guard work and a nice beagle that had a good nose. The beagle was great for shipboard searches, since he was small enough to lower through a hatch.

Keep in mind that dogs are great for finding the insurgent trying to hide from you, too. I've seen pictures of Military Working Dogs on patrol in Iraq. The real problem is a lack of body armor for the pups.

This documentary, called "War Dogs of the Pacific", was fantastic:

Lots of interesting clips came up when I looked up that documentary:

It's a little difficult to visualize a Post Apocalyptic world where dogs did not play a vital role for survivors.

If in a post apocalyptic world I would also have dogs…great for guards, alarms, and if brined first then slow cooked they are usually quite tender…hmmm man's best foo…I mean friend!

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP19 May 2010 4:22 p.m. PST

Ah, man. I'd rather eat one of my own kids (if I had any), before eating one of my dogs!

Crazy question, but I'm after something that could pass for a Labrador in 15mm – CC would the peter pig dogs pass for those.

I'll dig them up tonight and let you know. I may even take some comparison shots.

Good man, I'm after tracker dogs for my Vietnam Australians. They used black labs….!

Personal logo Emmanuel Goldstein Supporting Member of TMP14 Jul 2010 1:43 p.m. PST

I just seen on peter pig the new "character packs" has a dog team – with ears down and floppy (ie not alsatian). That'lldo me fine…..!!!!
Good luck with your search CC!

"Love a woman"
"Trust a dog"

28mmMan Inactive Member14 Jul 2010 6:50 p.m. PST

Love a woman as you would trust a dog.

Not sure where I wanted to go with that…I am a cat guy…hmmm, I really love women…dogs are ok.

I like the ideas of dogs with miniatures gaming…they make good mobile weapons, buffer targets, and alarms :)

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP14 Jul 2010 7:45 p.m. PST

LOL!
Didn't Ramses (Yul, in Ten Commandments) say something similar, about dogs and women? Can't remember the exact quote though.

Dan
ps. When I get home this weekend, I'll take and post the photos.

Splintered Light Miniatures makes some Saxon hunting dogs that are beautiful.

I seem to recall Eureka had a good selection of farmyard animals including dogs across the ranges they support.
