Just got the new Dark Elves army book. I was wondering, there is no allies in rare section, can Dark Elves use ogre bulls as allies? Or Ogre leadbelchers?

It would seem that GW is moving away from the old dogs of war choices in reviewing the latest 3 army books I own, High Elves, Vamps, and Dark Elves, None of them have the option to take Dogs of War units.

There's a variety of reasons for removing the reference to DOW in the forthcoming army books, and these are the main ones:
1. The rules detailing how to include DOW in an army are included in the DOW list/ articles. Therefore if you have access to those rules you have access to how they can be added to your army.
2. We may wish to revise the way DOW work in the future, and while we continue to perpetuate the current rules for them in the army books this will be very difficult to do. Our intent is that the DOW rules, should we produce a proper supplement, will be entirely self-contained and require no references in the army books.
Neither of these are intended as a signal that we are never going to do/ immediately going to do (delete as appropriate) a Dogs of War supplement. They are simply a sort of house-cleaning procedure that leaves us clear to evaluate and pursue the correct course of action regarding Dogs of War in the future.
I'm also locking this. Please don't post the same thread in multiple forums - this is a rules question and should be posted in the rules forum.

Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
