A USMC Dog team can have between 1-4 handlers with each handler with a dog. Do the Dogs count as models and can be taken as a casualty or are the handler and the dog considered 1 model?0August 29, 2020 at 12:22 am #181136
Empires in Flames page 104:
USMC Dog team
Cost: 18pts (Veteran)
Team: 1 handler
Weapons: Each handler has a rifle or submachine gun (as depicted on the model) and a dog
• Add up to 3 additional handlers at +18pts each
• Tough fighters
• Spotting: Hidden enemy units are revealed if a dog team moves to (or is deployed) within 24” of them.
I believe each handler is 1 model, and the dog is treated like a “weapon”, similar to a rifle. This is similar to the Soviet Anti-tank dog teams where the dog is treated as a one-shot weapon.1+August 29, 2020 at 4:30 am #181140
On a side note will these DUST models (see attached photo) fit the Bolt Action scale?

Looks like the Dust figures are a bit too tall, according to this pictorial comparison.0August 30, 2020 at 1:39 am #181188Kar98kParticipant
I have a couple of friends that have DUCT figures, and we did a simple comparison sometime ago. The DUST figures are very much taller than the 28mm Warlord miniatures, so do not mix well at all.0August 30, 2020 at 2:47 am #181189
Yes I think the Warlord Celtic Warhounds can be added to the Warlord USMC sprue to create USMC war dog teams.0September 1, 2020 at 2:01 am #181201Kar98kParticipant
This thread from TMP (Feb 2019) might be useful to some BA gamers looking for 28mm dogs:0
