I am thinking about converting my Empire army into a Dogs of War army. I have downloaded the two army list documents from the GW website (the DoW list plus Regiments of Renown). I have two questions:

1) Are Dogs of War only allowed to take common magical items?

2) Are there any other Regiments of Renown or special characters that can be included in a DoW army?

1. Yes.

2. There used to be rules for Lucrezzia Belladonna, Mydas the Mean, Lorenzo Lupo, Borgio the Besieger and Ghazak Khan in a WD. They were republished in one of the Chronicles books and were available for download a while ago. As for other RoR: does the downloaded list already include the Cursed Company, Ruglud's armoured orcs and Menghil's Manflayers? If not, try to get the rules of the Manflayers, they are one of the best RoR, albeit a bit hard to use - but very dangerous. Also, don't forget the Goblin Hewer.

It has the Cursed Company and the Orcs, but not the Manflayers.

Going by the Army Builder file, I have all the rules I need - except Marco Columbo.

Where would I find his rules?

As I recall there two sets for Marco, post- and pre- discovery. Rather like Leonardo, they weren't republished.

US website doesn't feature them anymore, it seems...

Thank Gork for the UK one. It seemed I didn't even have the manflayer rules yet... Now I do. They are on the bottom of this page:

The Goblin Hewer isn't available to Dogs of War, it's a Dwarf Slayer army entry that could also be taken for ordinary Dwarfs or Empire, not a regular mercenary unit.

And Marco Columbo didn't have any special rules, to my knowledge, the article when the model was released told you to use a suitable character type from your army (eg Empire captain) to represent him.

The Goblin Hewer is available to a Dogs of War army.

Of course it's available to DoW.

Marco Colombo has indeed rules, they were written by the Italian WD crew.

There is also the truthsayers, dark emissary's, and amazon serpent preistesses (lustria, WD 307, uk)

Thanks everyone. Seems the only rules I can't find are for Marco Colombo. Apparently they were in an Oz WD at some stage?
