For my hombrew setting, I have been converting the various factions of one of my favorite tabletop war games, Warmaching/Hordes (https://warmachineuniversity.com/mw/index.php/Main_Page), to 5e. This is a first draft of my Cygnar (https://warmachineuniversity.com/mw/index.php/Cygnar) conversion, which in my setting is known as the Kingdom Underhill, populated by Dwarves, Gnomes and Halflings (oh my!).

Trencher Infantry (https://warmachineuniversity.com/mw/index.php/Trencher_Infantry)
Prepared for anything, Underhillís highly trained trenchers are the first on and the last off the battlefield. These combat-hardened soldiers dig in and make life hell for the enemy, with rifles and grenades softening up the opposition before the decisive bayonet charge.

Trencher Officer
Only time and experience can teach a soldier to dig in under heavy fire and keep his edge for weeks of unrelenting tension when food and ammunition run low. Those who survive may be promoted through the ranks; many a capable soldier has proudly ended their career with a sergeant's stripe.
