I don't see a problem. I wouldn't even consider them much of a proxy, considering they're also wolf models. Truth be told I expect to see them as mounts for goblins in the not-so-distant future (you can even see where the fur is smooth on their midsections, which would be an excellent place for a crude goblinish saddle), and I think they'd be a great addition to a chaos army.

I have been thinking the same thing except with Vamps. So I would not have a problem with it. Have not seen them in person. How do they compare in size?

Well, they come with 40mm rounds, so I assume they would fit on cavalry bases easy enough.

Might need some creative posing, and they are more expensive, but the Chaos Hounds, IMHO, look retarded with those horns...

I'll be getting some for my Slaaneshi Warriors army, they'll suit better than the Warhounds models I think.

Direwolves - yes
Chaos Warhounds - yes
Goblin mounts - yes
Goblin Wolf Chariots - yes

Basically if it's hound/dog shaped these babies fit the bill nicely!!

I was thinking the same (as I'm sure most people who use Hounds are, in fairness). They're much more expensive than the WoC variety, but worth a box for variety. I was planning to hold fire though until someone confirmed they will fit a cavalry base...

Judging from this picture they're a bit taller than a warhound/dire wolf but it's not like they'll spill over a cavalry base.

Oh, they're much bigger than I thought.

Heck, I was going to use Chaos Hounds as Kroot Hounds! Then I sold my Tau for Chaos and now they are being used as Lesser Daemons.

So I'd be fine with it, even if they aren't warped enough...

Actually, they might be too big. They look like they're the size of a small horse.

What has to be remembered is that Wargs from LotR also go on the 40mm rounds. And they are smaller than the average Fantasy wolf. I think that they'll fit nicely onto the 50x25mm squares. Though I have no physical proof, just a hunch.

You haven't seen the Chaos Warhounds then. Mine are bigger than my Chaos Space Marines! They'd make a great dane or a st. bernard seem small.

I want to try them as mounts for Wood Elf wild riders.

I would do it too.
