[Archive] Typical Chaos Dwarf Appearance?

Ghaust Mortium:

Hello, I’m new here and I had a question. Now I know you guys have the hardest time over what you guys think a Chaos Dwarf should look like, but I was wondering what the generaly accepted appearance is. Please don’t be angry at my ignorance, but I need to know so I can formulate a method for converting minis. Please and Thank you :hat off

well welcome to the site Ghaust

well what do you think ??

well i have done pirate style !! i did not do the heavy tusk like most

or the tallhats if you want take a look at some of the blogs!

pick a style and go with it


TJUB’s big hats … The bigger the [size=xx-large]BETTER[/size]


War mask, curly beard and lots of armour :slight_smile:


Armor: Either plate or scale mail, it’s really a toss up.

Beards: Curly, disheveled, or non existent (The Ultra-anti-Karazi look)

Head gear: Hats, Helms, Bare, Bald, mask, Hat-masks, helm-masks, Hat-helm-mask-bare.

Height: taller or shorter than regular dwarfs.


Of course, they should all look like my models, as they represent the unwavering ideal of the epitomy of Chaos Dwarfiness. You see, I almost won a Golden Hat, so that more than seals the deal.

What? You don’t agree?



It’s all personal preference.

I go Big Hat myself.

I know others who like Masks.

Look in the gallery at all the armies and see which one you like.

i say no amour curly beards masks and bare chest big arms with scars


Depends on which generation of miniatures you prefer. Have look through the wiki, Stuff of Legends or eBay and see which appeals.


I would say that they should look evil, but then we probably would not all agree on that!  Basically as long as they don’t look like regular dwarfs you can do whatever you want.

I’m hoping someone will do a torturers themed army…:idea


Sounds like you’ve got a new project there, Grim…

Kera foehunter:

What - of course we would!
Chaos Dwarfs are evil and therefore also have to look evil! :hat


I saw I play only good armies.




Chaos Dwarfs

They aren’t evil, just misunderstood. :smiley:

You could use the Empire (or Dogs of War rules) for the Pirates.
