Rattle of iron and the grinding of rock, the moment of reckoning for the World of Mantica is upon us!  Today we proudly present our Dwarf Army Review.  Huge thanks to our crack team of Dwarfologists; Billy Smith, Kevin VonFeldt and Alex Chavez.  Without their significant contributions this show wouldn't be possible.  In this 3 hours episode we dissect the force list, answer a ton of listener questions and provide some seasoned insight into playing, and sometimes winning, with Dwarfs in Kings of War.  We'll be back again in a few weeks with part 2 when we tackle our Dwarf Hobby Review!
