Dogs of war unit help
« on: November 16, 2017, 12:13:27 PM »
I'm currently piecing together a Dogs of war army [apart from many other things] and was looking through what current models can be converted into the regiments of renown. My question is:
Was there ever a Dark Elf regiment of renown/ dogs of war unit? I seem to remember seeing one somewhere but it is not in the DOW rule book [as its the copy from 1998]. I also have the Warhammer chronicle from 2004 which contains additional DOW units but the dark elf regiment isnt listed.
I think i remember seeing this unit in a white dwarf issue....somewhere but i have about 24 years worth of white dwarfs and i dont want to sift through all the post 1998 issues to find this unit.
Does this Dark elf unit exist or am i just mis-remembering something?

Mengil Manhide's Manflayers. They're like DE shades but with a skinning fetish. Pretty sweet models with human-skin cloaks. ;)

They were in WD 298.  A pdf can be found here.

I found another unit I want to add Anakonda's amazons. I noticed these girls listed in a US white dwarf I have [I don't know how I managed to get a hold of this issue]. I'm going to see if I can convert some witch elves into these jungle girls

If you can get hold of a copy, the Dogs of Wars regiments are all listed in the Warhammer 2002 Annual, also the following year, Warhammer Chronicles 2003 lists the Dogs of War characters.

Didn't the Amazons were a warband for Mordheim? Or did I just mixed things up?

They were in a Warhammer Chronicles chapter in WD 115 (German Version) of 2005, in and mainly for the setting of Lustria.
