Suggestion for a future Dwarf Update based on Mods

Dear CA,

I have been a fan of the Dwarfs in your game Warhammer Total War for some time. At first they were a little bland, but you managed to update them and make them more interesting. However, the true joy I found was through the use of mods, and there were three mods which I feel really completes them. And as such I hope you will consider adding them.

Dwarf's Air Reinforcement and Underground Tunnels: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1295506312
This mod allows you to summon Miners and Gyrocopters into battle as summonable units, provided you properly invested in the right buildings and skills. This really makes the otherwise very immobile Dwarfs more interesting, allowing you to summon them at key positions.

SFO: Or more specifically, the Vermintide Grudge-Rakers that SFO provides: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1149625355 These Grudge-Raker units are good in melee, and can fire from melee as well. Making them a close range high damage dealing unit. They are not as tough as standard infantry, but they can hold their own a little better while they blast their enemies apart.

Tr's Lord Mount pack: This mod is especially great because it provides the otherwise mediocre Engineer a GyroBomber mount. The Dwarfs are supposed to be strong Infantry units, but being able to give your Engineers a mount is a welcome change. Plus it suits them thematic wise.

Speaking of Mounts, while I like how the Dwarfs are supposed to be a tanky infantry faction with little mobility, I would like to give the generic Dwarf Lord a mount. Otherwise they are just not viable due to all the competition (except for being dirt cheap). I have been looking over some past Warhammer content, and so far people have either suggested giving him a grounded War Machine (with steam attacks) or give him a Bear Mount:

    Regarding the mounts, there are two options in the TT army book: shield bearers and the oath stone. The former are two dwarfs bearing a large shield on top of which the character stands, offering him a raised fighting platform and two additional axes. The latter on the other hand is basically a think stone plate, upon which the dwarf stands in case you didn't know. Neither of them increases the speed but definitely the mass and improves melee stats alongside possibly offering charge resistance in case of the oath stone.

    SFO is hardly accurate to tabletop with some of the units they come up with
