    Do these two brands of Wolf troops fit well together?

    RAFM – War Hounds of Sirius

    There are also a couple of additional War Hound poses in this other RAFM set:

    I have indeed seen them together.  The RAFM dogos are more robust but i have been told that they look together no differently than human variations of height and weight.

    I’m very interested in this question also.

    I recently purchased Ralfm set RAF07015. Very nice sculpts, evidently done by the young Perry twins for Citadel/Games Workshop back in the before days. The castings were clean and sharp in the main. There are four castings with two each and two single castings. One pair has a very long stride advancing and is 15mm tall sole of foot to top of head. The next two pairs are 16mm tall, advancing rifle on left side and advancing rifle cross body. Next pair stationary head turned to right, rifle cross body 15mm. One single is head turned to right, right arm extended to right pointing 15mm tall. The last is stationary pistol pointed upward, crouched 15mm. If you count pointed ears some of the poses are 16mm, difficult to measure precisely.

    I also have the support staff set RAF07028 however my set only has the one warhound figure in the upper row. In place of the one in the lower row I have two of the human figures in the top row. The warhound figure in this set has a very long stride, is 15mm, and has a bag, no weapons.

    I emailed Ralfm when I discovered the missing warhound, July 30,  but have received no reply. Perhaps they will do better for you.

    If you are interested the Car Leonis (felines) are all almost exactly 15mm tall. The feline officer, with sword, in the Support Staff set RAF07028 is 16mm the other two are 15mm.

    Don’t forget there are several packs available of Canid troops at the Ion Age at Alternaive Armies – I have these – they are very nice.

    I have a few of the Alternative Armies Beotans. The ones I have are 20mm tall. Nicely cast and posed but they do take up a lot of personal space

    I had forgotten Khurasan has 3 packs of canids, Raug Ceepays and since I find trying to locate anything on his site very difficult this is the page http://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/15mmscifi.html  and page down to the 15mm Soriog Empire.

    Oh and I’m told they are huge but I’ve never seen them to measure. They look a great deal like Darkest Stars Canids in poses, very active, but larger

    One more edit.

    On Wargames Website there is a thread about Traveller figures. One of the pictures has a Darkest Star Garrhul, a Khurasan Raug Ceepay, and a Rafm Warhound, along with a couple of Rafm felines and a Ground Zero NSL Jager. The date I saved the picture is October 23, 2018 so about then

    Perfect.  Next paycheck I’ll be placing an order for both with their respective manufacturers.

    Thanks so much.

    BTW, I have a pair of Garrhul grav-raft crew coming out soon, as well as a little zippy grav roadster for them.

    Quick question to DSG about the 15GA01- Garrhul Merchant Prince and Body Guards … do the guards have helmets?

    They do not have helmets.  They do have “fancy” clothes, not military outfits, and guns.  The merchant has his arms crossed/folded over his chest.  Seems that product photo has gone AWOL, will have to fix that.

    If you go here https://www.thewargameswebsite.com/forums/topic/15mm-traveller-wargaming/ on the first post there is a photo. At the extreme left is a doggie who must be Darkest Star’s Merchant Prince with folded arms. Beside him is a Khurasan Raug Ceepay doggie. In front of the  Raug Ceepay is a Rafm Warhound. (The Rafm warhound is hard to see) The Merchant Prince is standing on a washer, the  Warhound and the Raug Ceepay are not. It’s  obvious the Warhound is much shorter than them. He is also shorter than the GZG UNSC trooper to the right but he (GZG UNSC) is on a base (probably a washer) and also has a thicker base to begin. I have both of those, when I get back I’ll try to get a picture and post it.

    Excellent information!  This coming Monday I’ll be placing my orders.

    Thanks so much for all your help.

    What kind of scenarios are you planning?

    #155287

    A raid on a human homestead.  Two or three families at most.  Mostly GZG colonists.  Armed children from Khurasan.  Perhaps a droid or two.

    I’ve got a couple of small buildings, two or three large-ish fields, and a GZG truck and crates.  I’ll make some low walls, and perhaps some sort of partially installed force field(?).

    The canids will come out of a small forest on one corner of the 2 x 2 table.  I’m hoping the fields will slow down their progress long enough to cut down their numbers and make them think twice about messing with those families again.  🙂

    Still not sure about the rules though.

    Thoughts?

    If you want simple I’d suggest Five Parsecs from Home but it’s not available just now. Upgrading to hard cover full colour. You could do Two Hour Wargames, great concepts, but I have a problem at times. Or the free version. Less stuff so a whole lot easier to play. The old D6 Starwars rules is a simple but good game. There is the free ‘Clash on the Fringe’ from Northern Weasel or Starport Scum. I love both of those titles

    Thanks!  I’m hoping for something that will allow me to play with about a dozen figures per side, or thereabouts.

    Those Garrhul wolfmen look absolutely amazing!  The detail is exquisite.  I hope I can do them justice when I apply paint to them.

    Thanks so much!

    Really glad you like them!

    Say, you’re not too far off from me (I’m up in DFW), we should hit Millennium Con if they revive it.

    Millennium Con is a good con. I hope it’s open this year
