A Blue Mountains Commander is a trader from whom you can hire Blue Dwarves from in the Blue Mountains. These commanders will spawn in Blue Mountains Strongholds.

To hire a unit, the player's Blue Mountains alignment must be at least +200 and they must have the appropriate amount of silver coins.

Upon hiring a unit from the Blue Mountains Commander, the player earns the achievement "The Mountains' Might".
