But the flag does seem a bit weird, just so you know

I tested in CPU mode and the banner was small and after loading it into the RDose sprite editor, it was intentionally made like that. The reason is that this was created before xslots and used the original spare banner and sprites slots like bt_zznewplyrbann6.spr which is a basic sprite with only 80 frames and therefore the banner would sit lower and obscure the sprite. Unfortunately there is no original spare slot that is taller like Dread King type sprite. Therefore, it's a clever solution using a tall sprite like a wyvern but in a small sprite type by having a short banner. Thankfully we now have xslots that solves this older issue.

Olly is right as usual - The banner is crippled intenionally because it obscured the whole sprite. Those days not only Xslots for banner/sprite customization were not available, but also Shadow of the Horned Rat sprites were not decoded. I made this sprite by getting as far as first Wyvern mission in SoTHR (Playstation emulator for better graphics) and making a video of all its movements from all angles. Then I mounted dwarf lord on the wyvern...

By the way, Chaos Dwarfs will finally find their way into Total War Warhammer as the 3rd 'Eastern' part goes live later this year. It will be an interesting experience. They are as good (if not better) as other dwarves as far as technology advancements, and also they have (unlike conservative dwarves) fast slave cavalry/monsters in their roster.
