Dwarven Wardogs | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

This is a request I got a while back that I'm finally able to get to making (sorry for the delay, Graham). Graham's request is simple: "A genetically superior hellhound bred for battle."

Chaosmen | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

From the Kingdom of Chaos, they ride, the Chaosmen. Brown teeth gnashing and grimy claws gripping jagged, blood-stained swords, they howl like sick wolves.
