GWs stance on DoW units is pretty random, as in they seem to change their minds a lot. Latest i know of is that if an army book has DoW listed as a Rare choice entry then they are able to take them. Seems strange that O&Gs dont have it though :S

(Example of randomness, one of the giants in a book somewhere lists which armies may take it as a DoW choice. This may be old, but its not that old that it didnt coincide with the above ruling. Unsure on any changes with 7th army books though...)

your question is answered in the 'choosing an army' page, of the actual dogs of war

O&G may use dogs of war (not dwarfs). the units you mentioned are a rare slot.

didnt see your reply phoenix :eek:
the giants are regiments of renown, theyre a seperate thing, every regiment of renown states which army may use it.

Aha, so it is in the army book.. just, not in the place its meant to be.. apparently lol.

And as you say, RoR each state where they can be used. DoW rules are pretty random indeed it seems :) Wish GW would make up their minds and be consistent in their madness... hehe

Actually, Digger I am afraid you are wrong. GW has been phasing out the use of DOW in armies, that is why nowhere in the army books does it state or give the option for the use of DOW units. It was removed in the newer addition.

The only armies that can currently use DOW are dwarfs and those who haven't been updated to 7th edition. You have to remember, you always use the current edition of the army book and it will supersede the army book or previous editions of rules. So currently, any army book that has been updated for 7th ed may not take DOW units. There just isn't the option for them to do so.

aha

so you can only use dogs of war if the army book states it. The Orcs and goblins does not state anything about DoW so does not allow it.
the dow armylist allows it but is even older and is superseded.

sorry there madmek.

Unfortunately yes. Its GWs way of phasing them out, been at it all edition. I find it quite sad, DOW allowed an extra dimension to be played by many armies and had characterful units.
