Spine of Sotek Dwarfs is a Dwarfs faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer II.

The faction is led by Hugrim Redaxe and can be found, not entirely unsurprising, within the Spine of Sotek - the mountain range in southern Lustria.

One of Markus Wulfhart's hunters can be found in this faction's lands.

If you start as any faction in Lustria, it is best to avoid conflict with these Dawi until you control most of the continent. Lustria is a thunderdome in both Vortex and Mortal Empires with lots of Legendary Lords starting very close to each other. As such, the first 50 or so turns can be very frantic as you fight off multiple enemies from all directions. Dwarfs are relatively passive factions, but the last thing you want is a tanky Dwarf army attacking from a new direction. On top of this, they can be hard to destroy as their mountains cause attrition and their garrisons are solid. If you cannot befriend and trade with these Dwarfs, it is better to save fighting them until you have consolidated and stabilized your first couple of provinces.


This faction is entirely made up by CA in terms of lore. The Dwarf Empire never reached to Lustria and certainly did not manage to stay there.
