Artillery (or "Arty")



A general term for ranged units, but more most commonly refers to dwarves (cocktail-throwing and mortar) [Thanks to jj/lophan for this definition] The main purpose of heavy artillery is to do massive amounts of damage to infantry and grouped forces at range. Arty units are fairly fragile and are susceptible to attacks by the longer-ranged air units. But when defended properly, they can completely decimate a large enemy force without suffering losses, an essential ability for some games. Arty is the quick term for dwarves, aggressive wights, warlocks or grouped fetch.
