Recommendations for Fun Dwarf mods

Back when Total War Warhammer first came out I played the Dwarves as my very first faction. I had a blast, but I found that after a while they became kinda stale. Now, 2 years later, I've made a collection of mods which I feel makes their campaigns a lot more interesting and fun. And I wanted to share that with everyone here:

Steel Faith Overhaul: This mod adds a lot of new features to all races, especially the Dwarfs. One of the new features is the Thunderers (Grudgeraker) which are pretty much Shot Guns, as well as improved Grudgebook and smithing features:

Tr's Lords mounte pack: This grants the Dwarven Engineer the Gyro Bomber mount, which is amazing!
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1296596697

Master Canoneer: This adds a new hero, who can be mounted on top of Artillary. This way you can have the Hellfire Rocketblaster as well https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1586381465 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1590049302 (You need both versions for SFO)

Dwarfs Air reinforcement and underground tunnels: This is a BIG one. It allows you to summon Miners from underground tunnels, and air support, provided you invested well enough into both: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1295506312 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1302406173

Grombrindal the True White Dwarf
: This mod turns The White Dwarf from a mediocre LL, to the bad ass he is supposed to be. It makes his melee combat a bit stronger, allowing him to go toe to toe with the other LL's, even without a mount: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1202505660

Dwarf bonus vs Large: A simple yet amazing mod! It grants two handed weapons a bonus against Large. People have been complaining about: "WHY DON'T DWARFS HAVE POLEARMS!". Well.. in my head canon they always had, as I imagined their two handed axes as having long hilts, making them effectively Polearms: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1182096481

Old World Rites: For some factions these rites make little sense, for the Dwarfs however they have some very thematic AND fun Rites :) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1315502181

Other mods: I recommend these as well, they made the overall experience so much more fun:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1606653153
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1588564964
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1158791019
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1602827469
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1170705545
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1376337924


TIPS:
1: ALWAYS put your Ranged units on Guard mode, and disable skirmisher mode. Once in Guard mode, their back lines will keep firing while in melee. This is especially great for the Thunderers (Grudge Rakers)

2: If you hold -ALT while right clicking with artillery, you can target the ground. This is amazing with Grudge Throwers and Mortars, as it allows you to hit blobs of enemies.

    The "no Dwarfs in game" is a popular mod in Lothern.

    They are making an FPS. Who knew a company could have a mid-life crisis ...

    I didn't realize the back ranks kept firing... Thanks for that!

    Number 2 is such an important thing that it should literally be in the new player tutorial stuff, IMO.

    Look into your settings and hotkeys for advanced commands... there's a whole slew of useful stuff in there.

    That is understandable considering the amount of whacking you skinny lot received in War of Vengeance. In your home turf even. I mean, who wouldn't want to be magically rid of his nightmare?

    And yet, not everyone knows about that. So I thought I'd share it :)

    EDIT: I removed JR's skill overhaul, as it overwrote Grombrindal his unique Factionwide skill boons, as well as made the other mods crash.
