I'm curious about the maximum height for a dwarf in the Warhammer universe. I have looked in several places online and been unable to find an answer.

    Snorri Nosebitter is really tall for a dwarf. It's mentioned in one of the Gotrek and Felix novels. I can't remember which one though. Felix comments on it or maybe it's one of his internal monolouges, but it's somthing like Snorri is tall for a dwarf.

  • thanks just wanting to know if they can be like nearly as tall as man but information is rather hard to come by haha Feb 14, 2017 at 11:11
  • A very tall dwarf can be as tall as an short-to-average height man. But I think that's about as close as they can get.

1 Answer 1


From Page 24 of the Warhammer FRP Rulebook:

Male - 4’4”+1d10”
Female - 4’2”+1d10"

Therefore, the tallest a Dwarf Man can be is no more than 5'2" and a Dwarf Woman can be no more than 5'0".
