interesting ideas, everything sounds balanced. Although the skybreaker has a little low health for its cost, i would advice to bring it up by 50 or by 100

Per player, yes.
It is big, 2x2 size and takes one place in Mega buildings.
Construction can be started only by Dwarven engeneer (craftsman's guild 7 turn worker)

2 @Patrol3110 - More health = even more cost.
Alas i wanted firstly for it to have 1000 health and 0% construction bonus...

But i think that flying building that can produce units at lower-than-usual-cost (-1 to their cost!), has speed 2 and 40 total damage can't have so much hp.

Can 2x1 work, it be sideways. Also I don't know if you can produce only one it if it's made by a worker? You might be able to still build more. Maybe it should be build in the Craftsmen Guild.

Nono. I want to be 2x2 Gigantic unit-building.
Also it takes 2.5 times more worker actions than Kingdom under mountain while having 4 times less hp.
As 2x2 size i meant that it takes 4 tiles on the map.

1)One griff rider is Already whit humans.
2)Also I don't like adding more flying to dwarfs until all race have something EFFECTIVE Agains flying units and own flying.
3)The Sky conqueror seems too powerful.
Combines fly tech and has Aura.
Fireball with no CD will wipe out any enemy building and fortification. (4 times in a turn?)
The dwarven players already are spamming dwarfs towers what are enough hard to take down for a basic tower.
4)Better add research too thunder storm like elf wizard needs.

My main point is i dont think other races should rival Scalefolk in air considering they have the best air units which are dragons
And yes i do have a suggestion for dragons. But ill save it for another time

This Unique mega building will take 50 engeneer (7 turn cost worker of dwarves, trainable at craftsmans guild only) actions, can be started only by engeneer, can be built only one per player.
And even more its speed can't be increased and human trebushet will deal to it 410 damage of its 500.

Extremly vurable to Acid and Acid dragon. Vurable to any artillery unit.
For exampe few fodder cannons of orcs can easily destroy it even in one turn.
Wagoned artillery will be extremly effective against this unit - before its movement can stay outside of its range of ALL its attacks and in its turn can easily move closer for deployment of 3 artillery units which easily can at least deal extremal damage to Sky Conqueror if not just destroy it.
So as i think for such unit it is normal to have no cooldown abilities.

As for Gryphons - naturally dwarves were the one who tamed them and after they teached it humans.
