You forgot Grimm Burloksson. He actually stands a decent chance at being a LL since he got a fairly recent model, and he’s fairly unique too. ArneSo Honestly? Red Brokk from the Dreadfleet wargame would make an interesting LL. Has an existing rivalry with Noctilus, and a Chaos Dwarf rival for game 3.
Yo are aware that your “Spirit of Grungi” pictured is more the refined probable later designed Thunderbarge? Famously known from WAR. Discussions Activity Best Of Sign In.

This is the ninth in a series of Posts I plan on doing on a complete visual guide to factions and their missing units. Links to the rest of this series. I’ve formatted this similar to how you may have seen them before, however I am doing this all from scratch to remaster the visual guides everyone has been drawing from; bringing them up to full speed with the latest DLC, fixing any issues that may have existed in them such as missing models or artwork and expanding them to include characters and units that were overlooked in the posts you may have seen before.
That being said: some characters or units never had models and have no noteworthy art that I could find. Brewmasters The Brewmasters, like Josef Bugman are integral to Dwarfen society and their armed forces too, since many Dwarfs go out to war with nothing but fine ale to sustain them.
Dwarf Queens Although less spoken of, Dwarf woman can be as strong-willed as their husbands and Valaya, the mother goddess of all Dwarfs is arguably the most important deity to the Dawi People, being the patron hearth and home, healing and brewing, the founder of most of the Dwarf holds, the inventor of their Culture and runic scripts and the protector of their race.
When Grungni prophesized the coming of Chaos, it was Valaya that devised a special rune to protect the Dwarfs and their underground homes from the taint of Chaos and the magic of the warp her rune gave the Dwarfs their innate magic resistance.
This is the legacy of Valaya and it is the Archetype that every Dwarf Woman aspires to be, yet despite this, their woman folk are rarely spoken of. Still, woman are not prohibited from becoming Queens or finding a position at the kings high council Thorgrim has several women in his assembly and many woman-folk find that they can swing an Axe just as firmly as the Goddess herself once did. Shield Bearers and Oathstones Either of these would be good at giving the Dawi some much-needed mount options that give them more mass.
Shield Bearers gives the lord better stats and increases their Leadership Aura range and buffs. Oathstones are slightly more complex: on Tabletop their runes offered magic resistance and a lord on an Oathstone could select 1 unit in their army to carry them. This unit would then form a circle around their lord and plant themselves in place, being unable to move, but also immune to being flanked.
Dwarf Prospector Dwarf Miners have a wider knowledge of subterranean tunnels than anyone else in the Warhammer world among their ranks, the Prospectors are veterans with the greatest knowledge and strongest arm in the pits. It is they who oversee mining operations, lead expeditions to discover new lands and riches and lead the Miners into battle when called upon. Few foes react calmly to the trudge of heavy boots behind them or an eruption of angry Dawi from beneath their feet.
Many a Dwarf Prospector has even been known to lead expeditions into enemy territory to reclaim the mines of lost holds such as Karak Varn. In-Game this could be his high-end mount option and be implemented along with him and the Thunderbarge unit.
Anvil Guardians Anvil Guardians are the sworn protectors of their Runelord and Anvil of Doom, though few in number, they are able to keep entire units at bay without breaking a sweat and allow their Smith the time they need to cast their spells.
On Tabletop, Rune Guards were usually just 2 warriors, but with the existence of the Brotherhood of the Anvil, This could easily be made into a full-fledged unit with only a handful of models but Unbreakable and unmatched defensive capabilities.
The crafty Dwarfs of Kraka Drak have constructed a tower on the back of these Mammoths and within the tower is a small crew of Dwarf Quarrellers and a mounted Bolt Thrower. This unit would be functionally identical to the Ancient Stegadon, with the missiles and Bolt Thrower on the back of the Giant creature. Most Dwarfs in the Worlds Edge Mountains frown upon the use of beasts of any kind for their unpredictability, but in the desolate wastes of the north, having been cut off for so long, the Dwarfs of Kraka Drak do not hold such reservations as they need all the help they can get.
These Crazy little guys plough recklessly through the enemy ranks, flailing their axes wildly above their head and into their periphery. The results can be catastrophic for any poor soul who makes contact with these whirling axes. Dwarf Juggernaut Engineered by dour Dwarf Artisans and crewed by stalwart Dwarf labourers, the Dwarf Juggernaut is a large and weighty self-propelled weapon. It’s equipped with a cannon and steam boiler. Games Workshop confuses me sometimes.
Some of their units have lore but no rules or models; some have rules but no lore or models and some, Like the Dwarf Juggernaut, have a model, but no lore or rules.
Still, its here for CA to use if they saw fit. Dwarf Steam Golem Steam Golems are the result of a long collaboration between the Engineers Guild and the Runesmiths during the time of Woes in a bid to end the Crisis. Based on the Rune Guardian statues, these Dwarf Steam mech-suits are covered in a heavy metal skin, beneath which lies a complex system of cogs, levers, and pulleys that would baffle the greatest Engineers of the Empire. One of the earliest applications of steam power was the first version of the Earth Borer mining drill, which replaced the earlier hydraulic mining drill.
At first, Dwarfs mounted a huge, steam-powered drill onto a modified cannon carriage. The drill was made of the finest steel and is powered by a steam engine that formed most of the bulk of the device. Success was limited, but it gave the engineers some much-valued sessions which led to improvements. The first step involved increasing the efficiency and performance of the engine so that the drill could be rotated at higher speeds. Next, the drill was strengthened so that the edge would not dull as quickly.
To achieve this goal, engineers coaxed the Jewelsmiths Craftguild into providing diamond chips which the engineers embedded into the drill’s cutting edge. Finally, engineers devised a means to protect the machine’s operators while propelling the drill. That cannon carriage was then modified so that a second steam engine could power the carriage’s drive.
The Earth Borer is a six-wheeled, steam-powered vehicle, with armour plating on the front and flanks to protect the machine and its operator from flying debris. A finely polished sheet of clear quartz is mounted at the front of the drill, so that the operator can see the tip of the drill and rock face ahead. The Bhlak and Dekkur drill itself is made of the hardest steel, studded with diamonds. It is powered by one of the machine’s two steam engines; the other powers the wheels.
The Earth Borer consumes a lot of fuel, and it is only used on exceedingly hard rock such as granite , or when a tunnel must be constructed quickly.
Miners with Steam Drills Blasting charges are not the only Mining tool the Dwarfs carry onto the battlefield; in their 7th and 8th edition Army Book, they also utilise Steam Powered mining Drills on the battlefield to brutal effect. The Golems were stored within the inner sanctums of the oldest dwarfen fortresses, where the Runelords held their Anvils of Doom and practised their craft.
During the War of Vengeance, the old magic that had empowered the Rune Golems began to dwindle, sinking from the Golems into the earth. When he attempted to reanimate them alone, the magic was too powerful and Ranuld was turned to stone. Since then, the Dwarfs have abandoned hope of using the Golems until they rediscover the secret to their creation, once the centrepiece in the Runelords arsenal, the Golems have all but turned to inanimate statues, within fallen Karaks, some have even been desecrated by the Greenskins, who dress them up and worship them as Idolz of Mork or, wait…nevermind oblivious to their once-great purpose.
Completely mindless, a Rune Guardian can only follow the instructions given to it the moment the Master Rune of Waking was inscribed upon its forehead. Rune Guardians sometimes have other Runes inscribed on their weapons or armour but can only have three Runes in total, and they can have no other Master Runes. Shard Dragon These beasts are subterranean terrors for any who make the underground their home. They burrow through dirt and stone all the same and many stalk silently through the great passages carved out by the Dawi and the Skaven, waiting for their prey.
Many a Shard Dragon has filled up the pages of the Book of Grudges. While its true that the Dwarfs tend to avoid using beasts of burden or creatures in combat due to their unpredictability; in the case of the Shard Dragons, their power was too great to be left alone. The Dwarfs created Runic Collars and Scrolls of Binding, specifically designed to keep them under control and even take them to the surface, far away from where they could threaten the Dwarfs homes so the Dwarfs could unleash them upon their enemies.
Thunderbarge The Thunderbarge is a zeppelin that supports a crew of 10, has bombs within its hold and is armed with 5 Organ gun cannons. This could be an amazing unit and a great mount option for Master Engineers. War Balloon Squadron Dwarfen War Balloons are small, armoured hulls or ‘gondolas’ below a huge gasbag filled with hydrogen.
Unfortunately, hydrogen is highly inflammable, so just like the Nautilus Submarine and the Gyrobombers, War Balloons tends to be crewed by reckless volunteers. The Balloons are powered by a steam-driven propeller mounted on the gondola and smoke is emitted from an exhaust funnel, leaving a smudgy trail behind it. The War Balloons can ascend or descend by altering the amount of gas in the gasbag, and steers by means of rudder flaps.
It can even move against the winds, albeit very slowly. These can be dropped from a greater height than the bombs dropped by Gyrocopters, although their accuracy is lower. Defensive squads, on the other hand, are armed with of turret-mounted Gatling Cannons. War Balloons can even outrange range Gyrocopters, given favourable winds.
Goblin Hewer One of the Mental Inventions of Malakai Makaisson, the Goblin Hewer is an artillery piece that throws an endless stream of axes at the enemy lines.
The Goblin Hewer would be best utilised firing along the flanks of a unit rather than shooting it from the front. Due to the contraption being made mostly of wood and being crewed by Slayers, it would be very fast, more like a weapons team than a traditional artillery piece.
Its high speed means it would be able to be fielded away from the main army relatively safely, able to keep itself out of danger it would synergize well with Rangers. During the End Times, these stoic warriors stood shoulder to shoulder with the Iron Guard against the forces of Krell, Neferata and a Night Goblin horde and were said to be unbreakable in their resolve such that the undead forces had to keep them busy and fight around them rather than risk attempting to fight them head-on.
Daughters of Valaya Dwarfen Woman make up a smaller portion of the population, but they can live considerably longer, to the point where there are many warrior women amongst the order of Valaya said to be Living Ancestors, descended from the Goddess herself. Everguard Hammerers are considered the most elite of all the Dwarfen warriors and the Everguard the Bodyguard of the High King are considered the most elite Hammerers of the most elite Infantry in the Everlasting Realms.
They wield the greatest Rune Hammers ever crafted by the Dawi and each blow from these sacred war-mallets could crack solid rock into dust. Often gone for months at a time, Rordak led his troops over the highest mountains, taking them along little known game trails and secret paths that only he could find.

February edited April But there are a few Lords and ladies that give the Old Grumblers hope that the old ways are not yet gone and Alrik and His Queen Winnifer Flaxenhair, the rulers of Karak Hirn, are two such nobles.
Due to its location in the Black Mountains, Karak Hirn has become a centre for trade between the Realms of men and the Dwarfs of the Worlds Edge Mountains, yet despite the constant contact with humans, the King and Queen of Karak Hirn have refused to allow their traditions or procedures to be diluted for the sake of better relations and easier trade and they have prohibited any and all adoption of human culture among their clansmen, turning their noses up at the Dawi who now live amongst the lands of men.
