Default empire

ok i just got the sudden urge to break out my old empire and repaint them, but I dont think i want to be main stream Empire. I havent played in ages and was wondering if i can make them kinda like dogs of war mercs, but with not much converting or anything. Just keeping the old Empire models and such. And also what set of rules are they on, im not sure what edition fantasy is on, and am wondering if out old rule book is the current one.

There's a new rulebook coming out shortly.

Dogs of War provisional army lists are available on most versions of the Games Workshop website, though from memory the British edition is the most comprehensive.

Modelling them so that they look different to the normal Empire units is a good start, as is changing their weapons to look more like pikes than spears or halberds. Crossbowmen are also vital.

Well, if you want to stick with the Empire book and still want to merc it up, you can always either:

*Use the Marienburg variant list in the back (which also suits merc armies in the Empire proper)

or

*use the regular list but restricting the choices taken to match those seen in the above variant list.


Hopefully, the new Empire book will facilitate variant forces (I'd love to see an IG-style Doctrine system) and there may be a new DoW pdf for 7th ed as well.
