View Full Version : Dogs of War and 8th Edition: To be or not to be!

02-06-2010, 01:37
Anyone have ANY idea about Dogs of War for 8th? Are my Pikemen unemployed? Are my dwarven pirates shipped out to sea? Are my Armored Orcs just... uh... armored?

Ally rules have been cleared to be for multi player/army games only but I haven't found a definitive answer regarding these rare but enjoyable units.

Our pikemen will be as employable as they are today. The real question will be how the rules affect us.

Thought I an loyal to Sigmar, I also field Dogs of War and I haven't found anything on forums except that GW is subcontracting some other games division to "perhaps" do things like Chaos Dwarves, Cathay and DoW.

This is a very thin hope who's moisture is sucked dry by the ton of salt I poured on it.

I still plan to hire them if my opponent allows. Just think of Long Drong's Slayer Pirates firing dual pistols in two ranks 12 inches! :D They are worth the steam tank in points I pay for them now, and great for the new objective base edition.

Question. Rumour forum. No.

Sure it is. No one knows what's happening with it. Any answers are purely subjective and likely a rumor.

It's as much a rumor as any other 8th discussion.

Its a question mate.The thread will be locked soon

Alessio Cavatore talked about dog's of war for a bit in his podcast. Dogs of War is just a way to field all those model's that end up getting phased out of a codex(armored orcs with crossbows, Slayer's with guns, Halflings, pre Ogre Kingdom Ogres).

Ogre Kingdom's are still a "for hire" army and they feature prominently in Warhammer now. So no reason DOW wont get a little love, even if it's through forge world.

Please just let them die a dignified death.

the GW in amsterdam is giving away a fully painted dogs of war army when 8th launches...

02-06-2010, 07:37
Seriously? I want it...

02-06-2010, 07:40
Yup was there last week and the blackshirt told me about the stuff they were gonna do for 8th edition launch, including giving away a fully painted Dogs of War army. Probably through some lottery system, they usually give away a fully painted army when something major launches.

I can confirm GW Amsterdam (my local gamestore) is indeed giving away a 3000 points DOW army on the 8th edition launch. Lots of nice things in there (Birdmen, Lost Legion, Albion Giants, etc..).
You can indeed win it in a lottery.

02-06-2010, 08:33
Aww, I wonder if it's worth a 300km drive for the off chance of winning it ;).

Yes it is.

I'm wondering whether its worth the plane ticket :D

yes it is.

Haha, problem is though to get tickets for the lottery you will probably have to buy stuff :) So its a plane ticket+ buying something to get tickets!

If you combine it with a weekend in Amsterdam, then hell yeah it is.

Having a 9000 points DoW army I can only disagree.

Mostly metal models, btw.

My main army cannot disappear, certainly not. :cries:

As long as there are wars in the Warhammer World, there will always be a need for DOW. The only way for a dignified death, is death in battle! ;)
