Chaos Dwarfs by Sleepy

Mod Description
This mod adds the full Chaos Dwarf faction to custom battles and to the Chaos Warriors (minus LLs) in the campaign. It brings over fifty lore friendly units to the game and will be getting it's own faction in the campaign eventually. It should be compatible with most other mods.

The Chaos Dwarfs
Malign, dark-souled and merciless, the Uzkul-Dhrazh-Zharr, Dawi Zharr, or Chaos Dwarfs as they are known in legend to the other peoples of the world, are a warrior race of Daemon-smiths and craftsmen, slavers and brutal killers that dominate the northern reaches of the Dark Lands and have done so for thousands of years. Their history is an ancient and terrible one, a saga of a great and hardy people whose nobility would become warped into utter malice, and whose stubborn refusal to die would lead them down a dark and bitter path to damnation.

The story of the Chaos Dwarfs begins many thousands of years ago, during the great expansion of the Dwarf race northwards, long before the rise of Man. The Dwarfs, cleaving to those lands where metal and gems could be found, and firm rock could be delved, principally followed the track of what is now known as the Worlds Edge Mountains. Here they excavated and expanded an underground realm of mighty subterranean fortress-cities linked by countless miles of mine workings and passageways. Eventually this slow but steady expansion led one group of Dwarfs to the uplands in the far north of the Worlds Edge Mountains range, which they came to know as "Zorn Uzkul" or the "Great Skull Land". It was a vast and inhospitable plateau where the air was frigid and thin, and the dusty ground littered with the wind-scoured bones of the ancient dead. The mineral wealth was rich here, but the earth and stone to some seemed tainted and unclean. Many Dwarfs called the place accursed and turned aside from it, either retreating to the most established holds or, if of more adventurous character, choosing to strike out into far Norsca or undertake the journey first east and then south to the rich lodes recently discovered in the Mountains of Mourn. Some however, refusing to be baulked, chose to remain in the Great Skull Land come what may.

At first these distant Dwarf kindreds retained close ties of kinship and trade, but as the world darkened and foul things crawled from its depths to sunder the Dwarf-realm, contact between the far flung Dwarf holds became erratic and infrequent, as each looked to their own survival and defence. When the Great Time of Chaos descended to sunder the world, these most forlorn of Dwarf kingdoms were lost to their kinfolk in the Worlds Edge Mountains, and were given up for dead as a tide of horror spilled across the land. The Dwarfs of the West could not have been more mistaken, for the ravages of Chaos did not destroy the hardy, determined Dwarfs of Zorn Uzkul, but instead it worked a dreadful change upon them.

It is impossible to say with any certainty exactly when the Dwarfs of the East became the malevolent entities now known as the Chaos Dwarfs, as the changes wrought to their bodies and spirits were slow and inexorable. Not even they themselves know the full saga of the dark times of their origins, save for that they were almost utterly destroyed, and it was only by their stubborn refusal to surrender in the face of unspeakable horror and death that they endured - endured and came to know a new patron god, Hashut, Father of Darkness. Slowly they began to increase again in number and restore themselves in power and dark majesty, now barely recognisable from what they had been before.

Legendary Lords
Zhatan the Black
- Hammer of Zharr
Acts of the most cruel and heartless nature are everyday occurrences in the Plain of Zharrduk. Thousands of slaves endure unimaginable agonies in the pits of Zharr, mining out the poisonous wealth amidst choking fumes and impenetrable darkness. In the workshops of Zharr-Naggrund untold slaves are worked to death in their chains so that their masters can enjoy a lifetime of ease. The Hobgoblin overseers in the Vale of Woe beat their pitiful charges so that their flesh hangs from their backs like bloodied rags. Even amongst such wanton cruelty there is one whose deeds of brutality are remarkable: Zhatan the Black, Commander of the Tower of Zharr.

Rykarth the Unbreakable
- Armour of Gazrakh
Rykarth the Unbreakable is one of the Chaos Dwarf Lords of Zharr-Naggrund. He is known for his toughness and courage, which set him apart from other Chaos Dwarfs. In a race of stout-hearted and disciplined warriors, Rykarth is viewed as a paragon of Chaos Dwarfen toughness, resolve, and cunning. He has faced many a canny and powerful foe and always triumphed - Rykarth himself was present in the forges of Zharr-Naggrund when Archaon signed a deal for the creation and crewing of the daemonic Hellcannons. Some say that Rykarth even met eyes with the Lord of the End Times without looking away. Only moments after which Archaon agreed to pay the hefty commission demanded by the Chaos Dwarfs.

Drazhoath the Ashen
- Hellshard Amulet
- The Graven Scepter
- Daemonspite Crucible
For more than a thousand years, the dark, burning spire of the Black Fortress has stood sentinel over the crossing place of the River Ruin at the southern edge of the Mountains of Mourn and guarded the border of the Chaos Dwarf empire of ash and suffering. It is a nightmarish place of soot, blackened iron and jagged rock, and burning magma runs through it like lifeblood. For centuries the master of this dark demesne and the warriors and slaves that inhabit it has been Drazhoath the Ashen, a twisted, power-hungry creature and potent sorcerer. Drazhoath was first sent to the Black Fortress in effective exile after losing favour in the brutal politics of Zharr-Naggrund as a minor hell smith but has since risen to become its lord through his innate cunning and bitter, ruthless ambition.
