Being a frivolous and short-sighed buyer, I often tried to start several armies(including a WAB Hibernian army) but never finished any. Now, looking at all the models I had, I came up with an idear. Make a Dogs of War army list. So, I cooked up some fluff that an Albion cheiftain and several of his followers were captured by Dark Elves during the Dark Shadows campaign. They revolted on board the slaver's ship and took it over. They then docked it at the nearest port, which happened to be Barak Varr. As they rested they resolved to find a way to make a living in this new land, as whatever money they had was quickly used up(mostly for ale ) So, they decided that they loved fighting, and needed money, and so became mercenaries. They had little luck recruiting in Barak Varr, except for one etraordinarily fat and drunk Dwarf named Hazgrim who voulnteered is dispossesed band of Dwarfs for the job. They then went south to Tilea and their recruited Maximillan of Miragilano and his Marksmen. They also brought back some ill-tempered Ogres with massive guns. The ogres were lured in by the sound of Dwarfish brew, which as everyone knows is the best in both the Old World and the New. Now they travel between the lands, fighting mainly for whoever promises the best fight and/or the biggest cashflow.
(Note: The pikemen are supposed to be Albion clansmen with spears and the Norse marauders are the General's bodyguards. Just for reference form a fluff persepctive.)

EDIT: Thanks Grief. I thought 10 might've been a bit much too. I was looking to fill out points with those extra cavalry. Hmm, the cannon didnt quite workk out. Not enough bodies to soak up my enemy's fire and troops(damn gobbo hordes ). And apparently Leadbelchers are rares for Dogs of War.
