Kili and Fili
Oin and Gloin
Nori, Ori and Dori
Bofur, Bombur and Bifur
One of the things done to differentiate the dwarves seems to have been the emphasis on the difference between noble born dwarves and those bred in the west:
"While most of the Company of Thorin Oakensheild is related to the royal and noble line of Durin, Bofur, his brother Bombur and their cousin Bifur most definitely are … not. Born and bred in the West, descendants of coal miners and iron workers, they have joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek their fortune and partly because they were told the beer was free."
Back to Blackmoor.
i think you have your "Nori, Ori and Dori" and "Kili and Fili" headers mixed up ;-)ReplyDelete
I agree. When you have to many to make separate characters, some should be fairly divergent from the stereotype.ReplyDelete
I really like the weapon design -- the cleaver-like short swords, the broad-bladed short spear, both well suited to a tunnel fight.ReplyDelete
@Drance: Thanks for pointing that out. I will fix it ASAP :)ReplyDelete
Hey now, all MY dwarves are clones of Flint Fireforge...ReplyDelete
I had few dwarves in my games, but the most popular ever was inspired by Fidel Castro... Long black beard, big cigars, organising national liberation struggle against Helldanic knights...ReplyDelete
Cool. Actually, except for fili not being blond, these pics look remarkably like the Rankin/Bass cartoon versions to me.ReplyDelete
