The font on the NA version for the heading "Chaos Dwarf" is not the same as the original.

The special ability allows it to work with other monsters with the same special ability. That's nice, but is it necessary? Published Hero Quest monsters only have unique special abilities. The effect as currently stated reads differently, like a card from a modern game.

Why not reword it so all our monsters better match good old Hero Quest? I'd change "Phalanx: When adjacent to another friendly figure with Phalanx, this figure rolls +1 die in defense." > Chaos Dwarves roll +1 combat die in defense when adjacent to another Chaos Dwarf.

It also fits better. A Chaos Dwarf would hardly build a phalanx with a skeleton. I think not.

Yes, that's one last change I make to this card. Afterwards I consider this closed.
It's like painting: Yes, you can always add another effect, another layer, but at one point you have to say "finished", otherwise you will never finish.
For me that is today. I will make a thread in some minutes that contains links to download all the cards and also all the raw material for people who really want to do yet another iteration.

I also added a white bar to the US cards so you can see it complies with your card format. :-)
On the self-cut-pdf the white bar won't be visible, it's just for professional printers. I did that to all the cards already.
