InfantryEdit

Dwarven infantry is a very difficult foe to battle. They wear metal armor, the elite wears zarakthel chain armor.

The light infantry is a rare unit, used mainly in times of emergency. Ocasionnally, helberdsmen are used to counter enemy cavalry,but otherwise Dwarves prefer good protection

Armed with axes, maces, swords, the Dwarven heavy infantry is the key force in the battlefield. In full armour, they are practically unbeatable. Hower, the Dwarven elite units, the famous Dragonslayers and the Silver Guard of Zirag Zigil are stationed seep in the mountain halls.

Dwarves have often learned to use missile weapons for long distances. For this case, crossbows are used in the battlefield. Also, throwing axes are used for shorter distances.

CavalryEdit

Dwarves always lacked a reliable cavalry force, with some realms having a few war chariots. The Dwarves ride ponies to travel long distances, but they do not feel comfortable fighting on horseback

TechnologyEdit

Of the Free peoples, the Dwarves seem to be technically the most advanced. They keep however most of their clever inventions in their underground halls and tunnels to prevent the enemy engineers from capturing it.
