Do you have and game with canine miniatures?

A – Some companion dogs on bases with other figures
B – Work dogs on bases with other figures
C – Stand alone domesticated breeds
D – Stand alone work dogs
E – Stand alone wild dogs
F – Prehistoric dogs. Rawr!
G – Monster dogs (but not werewolves or anthromorphs – just beasts)
H – Robodogs!

… any I missed?

I've got A-H, but not a lot, so I reuse my wild dog pack for any breed.

I made up some Russian tank killer dog teams for Flames of War. I used them as Early War (Barbarosa) "unarmed pioneers" with Peter Pig 15mm figures.
Being a small unit and Conscript, they were useless in Assault. As one might expect. grin

I have some Mastiffs which I am planning on using in a Seminole Wars game. Just to work out the kinks.

My SAGA Irish have a unit of wolfhounds and a trainer. Fast little Bleeped texts! But not real good fighters…

I have a few hounds as companions on my SYW command stands

foxweasel03 Jan 2018 12:03 p.m. PST

A, I like my commanders to have a hound with them.

Private Matter03 Jan 2018 1:18 p.m. PST

Dogs are a regular fixture in my All Things Zombie games as well as many of my other skirmish games.

Dagwood03 Jan 2018 2:16 p.m. PST

I have half a dozen, still unpainted. After seeing a film over Xmas, I now I need a howling dog to go next to one of my Ancient British hornplayers …

B-- dogs intermingled on the 15mm DBM Serbian Empire hordes elements. I got inspired after a member of our gaming group built an Inca army just for the allied Spanish wardogs.

Legion 404 Jan 2018 7:31 a.m. PST

Got some 6mm SM Space Wolves that will have a Big Wolf or two on some of their Cmd stands. Still awaiting paint though … But have a whole lot Wolf insignia on flags & banners !!!! evil grin

I try to give each battalion, at least, a mascot dog or other animal that provides a morale bonus. My Wehrmacht Indian Legion gets a peacock, the national bird of India, most of my units get various dogs, but also cats, birds also make an appearance. Many of my guard figures have a guard dog to protect the POWs or the missile complex.

My 25mm Vargr figures don't count, I suppose.

I have a couple of NATO military police with dogs in 1/72 from, if I recall correctly, Airfix.

I've never actually used dogs in a miniatures game. They've shown up in various RPGs, of course.
