Horgenhold Forge Guard
The Horgenhold Forge Guard enter battle in superlative Rhulic armor, form an impervious line, and deliver blows capable of toppling warjacks with their massive, piston-driven hammers. Though the dwarves remain officially neutral in the southern wars of men, the Forge Guard hire out as mercenaries and bring the power of raw, blunt destruction to the battlefield.

Thoughts on Horgenhold Forge Guard
Horgenhold Forge Guard in a nutshell
Forge Guard are slow, pretty durable and hit pretty hard. They are a second line unit that rushes in and beats up whatever is in range. They also cause occasional shenanigans with their Smites. They're not easy to deliver, but that's typical for weapon master units.
Combos & Synergies
- General Ossrum buffs all dwarves
- They like a skirmish line in front of them to avoid getting charged.
- They are a decent choice for a ranking officer as they tale some faction buffs extremely well. Dauntless Resolve for arm 21 tough weaponmaster dwarves anyone?
Drawbacks and Downsides
- They are slow
- They are easy to hit.
Tricks and Tips
- Try to always charge for a good smite angle. Even if you only get the Critical once in a blue moon it's better to get in the habit of smart positioning
- Released in Warmachine: Legends (2008)
