Thunderers

Thunderers or Arquebusiers are Dwarfs armed with handguns.[1a]

Some Dwarf clans purchase and equip warriors with handguns from the Engineers Guild. Each is a work of art, more effective and accurate than those used in the Empire. [2a] Many Thunderers modify their guns to incorporate improvements or the latest idea from noted Engineers resulting in arguments between them as what makes for the most accurate weapon. [5a]

There is quite alot of rivalry between Thunderer and Quarreller regiments and bloody brawls have been fought over which weapon is better. [4a]

History

It was a very long time between the discovery of black power by the Dwarfs and the approval of the Engineers Guild for the large scale use of handguns by line of battle regiments. [4a]

Quotes

I mean, it makes an awful stink, for Grungni's sake, and smoke everywhere, stings your eyes something rotten it does. Still, they're better than those contraptions the Manlings cart about these days - least you can hit something at fifty paces.
