9th Age
#1
Is anyone working on a Dogs of War for 9th? I heard that they have groups of people working on other army books.

Dunno if they're interested in doing the niche armies yet, think they've got their hands full trying to balance the existing armies to be ready for ETC (if the ETC choose to go with 9th Age, quite a high likelihood I think).
Otherwise, if the ETC doesn't choose to go with 9th Age, I wonder what kind of future it will have.

Are you working with the 9th Age group or independently? They stated that the Dogs of War work will begin sometime in April with them.

Not entirely sure but the fact that they haven't forgotten about the Dogs of War is encouraging, no matter what system.

So can you guys confirm the timeline for release of the 9th Age rules for Dogs of War? Is April accurate?

Great to hear that the dogs of war army book will be reloaded.
I like the idea of the captains you posted, it can give our regiment a single personnality!

Hope it will be more on April, September will be hard to wait. Wink

Just a suggestion about your spoiler : 
The fact to add a "renown" captain to a unit to increase it is cool and perfectly fit the concept.
I think it will be a must for close combat units because the hero will help them when they will fight. 
But for shooting units, buying a hero to add special rules is perhaps a too high cost as the hero will not save the unit if it is contacted.

Do you think we will have some "Da Vinci" inventions in the army book? like birdmens for example.Tongue

From the 9th age forum


Quote:You shouldn't expect any kind of draft before autumn/winter. Could it happen before, maybe, but highly unlikely. Also autumn/winter isn't written in stone so it could be even later. There is a lot of work to do with the existing Core Armies before we can start adding Auxiliary Armies.

So nothing before end of year for dogs of war. And perhaps nothing this year. 
I also asked for a dedicated forum on the ninth age website to make the ideas progress, but they also said no. Dodgy
I have to be honnest, these responses appear really strange to me after the spoilers posted here by Italian Condottiero (Nothing against you Italian Condottiero, but why giving us some hope and then close all communications ? The project have been replanned ?)

I am new on this forum, but would it be possible for some of us to adapt our army book to ninth age on this forum ?
Willmark, would it be possible to use this forum as a player rally point to imagine a temporary 9th age army book ?

Feel free, the forum is for promoting Dogs of War in any and all forms. Regardless of edition, we are THE place for Dogs of War!

15 months, no progress, nothing. Not even an update in the 6 months since Dogs of War were named "Iron Crowns".

I'm actually madder at Ninth Age than I am at GW.

I was part of a group which proposed something to their team.
Unfortunately, for various reasons(Copyright, their team want to keep the drive on their project ...), our attempt was rejected.
Considering that their orignal release date was planned on April 2017 and the "smash" they got in the face from community with the last release 1.2, I wouldn't expect anything until 2018, now. 
But I am not part of their team so I cannot be sure.

Yeah, it's just crazy.

My main issue is that there's never a perfect time, so constantly pushing Dogs of War off is BS.

It doesn't really matter. I'm pretty disillusioned with all the 9th age stuffs anyway, especially the drones with their lame fanboyistic chant 'domina vult'. If I can kickstart my local Wargame group, which has great growing potential, the more simply minded will go to Age of Sigmar while the more hardcore and pageantry-loving will go with 8th/6th edition (or Kings or War, Ancients...)
