Chaos Dwarfs

Not an official GW army, but they are in the ETC list I've been using for unit lists and as the models are out there... (well, most of them, the war machines are a problem as usual)
This time I'm using Forge World as the official range (at least I think that's the closest we have) and am even more unsure about all the stuff they won't have, so if I've understood any of the units wrong, please let me know.

A few comments first:
  •  The models listed here are not perfect and many are not on the same level as the original ones (those are usually way older than the current GW range). I am not saying losing GW models won't be a pity, if anything this work is making me appreciate them even more. I am just saying that a solution exists. The important part is, the models are out there.
  • This is not only my work. I have used ideas and suggestions from The Herdstone and am very grateful to all the people there and their collective wisdom.
  • In many cases I was unsure about the size of the models and was forced to go on guesswork only. I hope at least some of them will work.
  • When possible, I have tried to link to groups of models and larger units, if only to show multiple sculpts at once. Most of the companies sell the individual models as well, should that be preferred.
  • I am quite a chaotic person and may have overlooked something awesome. I usually try to link sites that offer greater number of useful models or the ones I know I have not exhausted, but searching around the linked models might yield even more fruit.
  • If you know about something useful not linked here, please let me know and I will add it. This is by no means an exhaustive list and can never be, but I would like to list as many possibilities as possible.
