Dwarves is a faction made by the Wciow, Jda, and Archmage, based upon Dwarves from various fantasy sources, including those such as Lord of the Rings. it features a full sized tech meant to be added to the Magitech tech tree. Featuring 18 units and 6 upgrades, it's roughly the size of the default Magitech factions, Tech and Magic, though the issue of balance has always been a challenge in its development.


Originally started by Wciow, he finished a complete version, naming it the final. However, two other modders, Jda and Archmage, have since expanded the Dwarves faction minorly, adding some new unit types, improving balance, and various smaller changes. It is a fully functional mod now, and while "officially" declared a WIP in its included Read Me, development appears to be complete.

Bombard Rushing[]

The bombard is quite powerful, has lots of HP, and is a ranged unit, meaning in large numbers, they are very potent foes. Massed together with melee units in the front row, such as the Dragon Slayer, a small squad can make short work of foes, particularly armoured foes and buildings. The high power and range of their attacks gives a large advantage over melee units.
