I am actually happy that Weta didn't go the easy route and just did the worn-out D&D design, making dwarves miniature vikings.

Over the last decades, all fantasy authors and artists have just been coying from each other without ever trying to come up with something new in regards to dwarves.
I am really thrilled to see that PJ and his team are bold enough to re-invent dwarves and smash our old, preconcieved notions about how dwarves are supposed to look (and act) like.

Remember that Eomer when he first saw Gimli thought he might be elvish.

After this, dwarves will never be the same again. Mark my words.
