Overview[edit | edit source]

Greybeard's Prospectors is a Dwarfs faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer II. It is led by Thyk Skolsson and can be found in the mountain range in the western parts of the Southlands.

Provinces[edit | edit source]

Eye of the Vortex campaign
  • Cobra Pass (Vulture Mountain and Eye of the Panther)

Strategy[edit | edit source]

As Arkhan the Black, avoid fighting this faction early on since their superior infantry will destroy Skeleton Warriors. After conquering the crusading Bretonnian factions, one can decide to double back on these Dwarfs to try to take their mountains.

As Repanse de Lyonesse, the Prospectors are one of your best opportunities for allies early on, and one of your banner missions in Eye of the Vortex asks you to do so. You may have to scramble to settle Bel-Aliad before they do, and you shouldn't expect much in the way of military expeditions from them, but the Prospectors can provide a constant, unbreakable trade route, which is always valuable. The final mission of the Sword of Lyonesse chain takes place in the Atalan Mountains and requests you to help the Prospectors defend against a multipronged Tomb King attack.

Diplomacy[edit | edit source]

Diplomatic traits:

  • Survivor

These Dwarfs start out with good relations with the Bretonnians and slightly negative towards the Followers of Nagash.
