do dwarf rangers use dwarf bows?

24-04-2007, 18:39
I think they have normal bows which are the equivelent of stunty long bows.

Possibly 'Short' Bows.

Dwarf Rangers can be upgraded to have Long Bows. These count as normal bows on the missle chart. i.e. 24" range and str 2

Normal dwarves use dwarf bows (orc bows with str3, well made short bows), rangers can buy "long bows", which are ruleswise normal 24" s2 bows. They are long for dwarves :D

so they have normal bows that can be upgraded to long bows?

Argh, this is confusing.

Rangers donīt have any bows withouth paying. They get "long bows" which are actually normal bows, ruleswise. The longbows of humans are ruleswise elfbows, but the longbows of dwarves are ruleswise bows.

S = strength, R = Range
Dwarf bow S3 R18"
Dwarf long bow/Normal bow S2 R24"
Man long bow/Elven bow S3 R24"

Hope that clears things up.

so they don't get bows, but you can buy them dwarf longbows(which are infact normal bows with s=2 and r=24)?

my brain hurts:confused: :mad: :cries:

Correct. You can also buy them throwing axes :)

Why dont dwarf get crossbow? Bows just seem to Elvish for Dwarfs to use.

Because crossbows are reserved for corsairs and uruks.
