There aren't a lot of descriptions of the Hound other than it seems to come from smoke so I tried to create that effect using a monochrome palette. I had the Black & White Scalecolor set from Scale 75 and decided to try that out. Its not precisely black and white there are some definite purple and brown tones in the colors (which is a good thing!). So, appropriately, this mini was more of an experiment than anything else. I banged it out in a couple of hours and while its not one of my best efforts it would certainly get the job done on the table.
This was the first time I worked with the Scalecolor paints exclusively on a mini. I discovered that you have to pay attention when thinning them down. While they come out of the bottle quite thick it doesn't take much to thin them down. I find myself over thinning them most of the time and really having to build up my colors again that probably worked in my favor in bringing out the different tones.
