One more single player campaign from me.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6qp4peu3xt2mzyd/Dwarfs.zip?dl=0

Archive files are to be placed inside /Dark Omen/Mods/ folder.

The core of the army is dwarf units.
Infantry: Regular Warriors, Slayers, Hammerers
Archers:  Irondrakes, Old Deadeyes, Thunderers
Artillery: Master Engineers

As all dwarf units have movement=3 (which is slow, e.g. human infantry mv=4 and elf infantry mv=5), I added a few fast moving regiments and wizards to speed up the whole process. But as I said, dwarf units are major war power.
Other Features:
- All dwarves speak SoTHR dwarf voices as much as editing CTL allowed.
- Enemy units and positions are modified: 1/2 is taken from Chaos Dwarves campaign, several missions from Wood Elves and several missions are original missions modified in a unique way.
- All original missions are included in the campaign.
- Cut scene portraits are modified: Azguz Bloodfist takes role of Morgan.

A few updates:
1. Fixes in last mission: there was a bug with deployment
2. I thought how I can resolve dwarves slow movement issue w/o adding too many fast non-dwarf units.
I figured once in early stages of Warhammer there were Bear Riders in Dwarf Army. Later they were moved off the table and they are not present in recent canon army books. However I decided to add them none the less.

Almost as fast as horse cavalry but much tougher.

First post link is updated.

Well, yeah  Smiley

Just since boars are already occupied by Boar Boyz and GW never mentioned Dwarves to mount boars, bears are a preferable choice.

Made a few updates to the campaign after Bear Riders were added to the army.

To my taste, the campaign is not boring at all even though major force has Mv=3 Smiley There are 2 cavalry units, good ranged attacks, fire wizard -definitely most powerful magic caster in the game.

What was updated:
1. Increased difficulty to several missions.
2. As a test mode, reduced teleport range for Fire Wizard from unlimited to 1000 pixels - this is roughly the same as cannon range, so I did not notice any inconveniences at all Smiley
BTW, reducing teleport range might be useful for multiplayer games.

First post link is still valid. Also, I am going to update my mods back with this and other minor changes...

An update in Dwarf Campaign:
3d Dwarf heads made by Olly (using SoTHR textures) are added: 3 of dwarf units throughout campaign have new heads, cut scenes between missions have new dwarf king head instead of Morgan Bernhardt. Same download link from first post works.

Cool, many thanks! We will need your skills on the Dark Omen 2 campaign soon, as we are just completing the 24 new maps and scenery etc.

Will discuss the finer details closer to the time in another post but they will hopefully be modded ones, as I remember the pain you suffered making new ones. I will update the Mod pack with this latest version.
