So I have the new plastic Dragon Model just to assemble and paint, and I had some thoughts as to what I'd do with it if I ever wanted to use it in an army list.

Personally, I like mounted armies, nothing but lots of movement and cav if I can help it, and this strikes me as having a bit of everything, some Magic, Lots of Movement, and some Cannons to deal with something that is particularly bad and needs shooting (like other people's dragons).

Arch Lector - 305 Points
War Alter, Hammer of Judgement, Armor of Metioric Iron, VHS

Battle Wizard - 164 Points
Level 2, 2x Scrolls, Barded Warhorse

I like the first better the dragon lord is still really good and you have 2 big threats to deal with in the first list vs one in the 2nd list.

Nope, GW has stated that the rules for using DOW units are in the DOW rules and therefore are no longer listing "Dogs of War" in army books, allowing them the freedom to change what is available to whom by simply modifying the DOW rules.

So yes, I'm still allowed to take the Dragon as a Rare+2 Hero's in an Empire Army.

Note on DoW from Gav Thorpe.
There's a variety of reasons for removing the reference to DOW in the forthcoming army books, and these are the main ones:
1. The rules detailing how to include DOW in an army are included in the DOW list/ articles. Therefore if you have access to those rules you have access to how they can be added to your army.
2. We may wish to revise the way DOW work in the future, and while we continue to perpetuate the current rules for them in the army books this will be very difficult to do. Our intent is that the DOW rules, should we produce a proper supplement, will be entirely self-contained and require no references in the army books.
Neither of these are intended as a signal that we are never going to do/ immediately going to do (delete as appropriate) a Dogs of War supplement. They are simply a sort of house-cleaning procedure that leaves us clear to evaluate and pursue the correct course of action regarding Dogs of War in the future.

I'd stick with the first list. Arch Lectors rock! Plus Krootman's right: In the first list you'll have to really hard characters, in the second one there's only the Emperor...

why not drop the dragonlord for a steam tank and a extra unit of knights? maybe another cannon? or some pistoliers?

The purpose was that Voodoo Boyz wanted a dragon in his empire army..

I like both lists.. but damn the emperor is hot.. and isn't his dragon better than Asarnil?
