After researching Weapons of War I am unable to build the weaponsmith improvement.  I have a level 5 fortress (and only one, so it wasn't inadvertently selected in a different fortress) with a forge and blacksmith built, but it isn't available.  It looks like (from checking the hiergameon (sp?)) it was dropped off of the Forge-Blacksmith-Weaponsmith upgrade path.

Weaponsmith is a 1 per faction kind of thing. Double-check so you don't have it in any of your other cities, especially conquered ones.

Also note that the chain is Forge-Blacksmith-Armorer-Weaponsmith

That explains it (the second part) - I was playing a game with a "No Armor" faction, so the weapons of war tech was available, but not the armor tech (and thus not the armorer improvement).

Thanks Heavenfall!

But Weaponsmith has other uses besides building armor.   The name is 'Weaponsmith' not 'Armorsmith'.

Aye - it confused me enough that I had to make a forum post Mostly what threw me off is that, even though when playing a "No Armor" faction, the tech tree showed that one can build a weaponsmith once one researches "Weapons of War". However, since the "Armor" tech is unavailable one can't upgrade a blacksmith to an armorer, and thus one can't obtain a weaponsmith.
