This is an excellent rendition of such an abstract monster. well done. Will the Hounds of Tindalos expansion ever be realesed separately from the kickstarter ? I have no credit card, so I wouldn't be able to participate in the kickstarter.

Yes it will. I will have extra copies. I'm still planning on doing the kickstarter soon but no timetable. Work gets in the way ;)

One of the better versions of the Hounds I have seen. Too many artists actually make them look dog-like; this, I think, is incorrect. They are canine only in that they _hunt_, not because they look like them. I like your version quite a bit. Alternatively, given their alien and not-quite-completely-solid nature, their form might be "formed" by the mental image of the prey, filtered through the Hound's alien psyche, forming a blasphemous creature that could be considered "dog-like" only in it's vaguest sense.

Thanks! I always appreciate when people notice the time I took to research and really put thought into the design.

Stunning work; the Hounds of Tindalos are such an interesting, deeply frightening kind of monster (imagine being afraid of corners & angles...), and I like your take on them. This one reminds me of a shoggoth.

Well, if I wasn't afraid of corners and angles before, I am now... Honestly, if this is what a mortal mind can think of when it comes to Hounds, how much more terrifying can the unthinkably REAL ones be?

That aside, I like this look for the hounds. It has less of an actual canine feel beyond the moving on four feet. The more, ah--penetrating design gives it an very unpleasant feeling to look at and frankly this is definitely a design that I would use to describe the creatures in any game I would run. Excellent job!

I quite like how you've designed it's anatomy, especially the back-lit swiss-cheese effect- very cool and original! :)
