hey after 7 years in 40k im moving into fantasy. My first army will be empire and im looking to add some odd units into it and im wondering how I could do that....merecnaries.
I searched the forums and found some stuff but wasnt really of any help.

dogs of war and ogres are the only way I know (not including allies from kisleve) check out REgements of renown on gw website.

You can hire mercenaries from the Dogs of War list (which I think you can get on GW's website). They are rare choices in army composition.
Ogre Kingdoms and Regiments of Renown (famous dogs of war) can also be hired as rare (or sometimes special).

Thanks for the help!
I assume if I was going to take ogre kingdoms or kislev they are also rare or spec? thanks

kislev works as an allied list rather than mercenaries, but gryphon legion can become a rare choice, but they are worse than Inner Circle knights.

how does an allied list work?

You are welcome. I love them, too, and I have and play a all-mounted Kislev army. Here are a few as they stood last winter (WIP):

If you're going empire the kieslevs are great to add some dimension to the army. The GW miniatures really stand out from the rest of the army, also they're rather nice. Most RoR are seriously overpriced and IMO shouldn't be taken unless you really, really want to, much better to go with the DoW then. Another fun twist to an empire army is to take a giant, since the empire normally doesn't have that type of fat, many wounds and kick-ass-attack models. Except for the steam tank, but IMO the steam tank is quite boring.

Hope you enjoy WFB!

Another unit that adds to tactical flexibility in the same sense as the giant are the Ironguts, though less flexible and not terror causing it is not a large target and blows 12 S6 attacks (no upgreades). Just be sure to charge with it...

Speaking of cheap
