This lists covers the seven tribes of the Dwarves. Although Dwarves were less than 5' tall, they were very strong and hardy. Armour was of mail, often a complete suit and including full-helms covering the face. Beards were braided and tucked into belts. All Dwarves lived underground, hence the lack of built-up areas in the terrain listing. The house of Durin was the largest and most organized tribe, but after the loss of Moria in 3A1981, the house became fragmented, and was further weakened by the loss of Erebor in 3A2770. Ally contingents either within or drawn from this list need not contain any nobles. Only one external allied contingent is allowed, and they may not be used with any regulars.

HotT: 1 x Hero, 1 x Shooters or Blades, 9 x Blades

Enemies: Sindar, Khazad, Angband, Easterlings, Goblins, Mordor
