In my games dwarfs usually wage war against everybody else (Silvania, the Empire, Orks, Wood Elfs, Bretonia) and they always end up conquering new castles (AI vs AI battles). If they get cavalry boost... I don't know.
I’m having to excurse the comments on Warsword, Warsword baptism not been purist enough to the lore of warhammer,
I appreciate there’s 202 pages of views, you would have to read through to understand the world of Warsword, but let’s look at page 1, the very 1st page yes number 1
Del has gone to great lengths to explain
“Warsword is a mod based on Warhammer fantasy battles
game by Games Workshop.
This is total conversion of the original Mount & Blade, and it will not work on Warbands.
Warsword has no intention to try and copy warhammer, the mod has many things that are different than the warhammer world, which is mainly a table top world, not a real time RPG adventure game,
The skaven in Warsword are very different to the table top, yet players enjoy playing them,
The ratling gunner is different, the over use of blackpowder troops is to balance the faction which is very easy to beat, this faction could do with a mount also,
The Table top battles are between two sides, Warsword you have including yourself the player 13 different cultures with their own troop types fighting it out to be the outright winner.
There’s been many views on Warsword not been true to the lore, 1 comment was orc archers,
Not been correct, but in the test version no one commented on this, why because in a real time battle archers are must, it doesn’t matter whether your elven bowmen or a Bretonnian longbow man, every army in history had some form of skirmisher, to stand off and pepper the foe,
The Greeks who where a great infantry nation had the phalanx, it took Alexander the great to introduce basic cavalry to change the battlefield tactics of the day, which the Persians never adapted to and lost,
The introduction of the dwarf mount has done just that , Many a battle the Dwarfs where out flanked by speed and cut down, the Chaos knights where very good at this, the Dwarf mounted slayer balances this and makes the dwarf a greater challenge,
I have no loyalty to any of the 12 cultures in Warsword, I look to make the game player able and enjoyable which means a challenge; they are other mods out there that stick to the lore.
Warsword never started out to do this and will continue in this direction
