Who ever said dwarves couldn't be good-looking, anyway?

Yeah, I tried to looking around on-line at one point and there didn't seem to be anything suggesting Tolkien had ever described dwarves' facial features, beyond having beards.

What's to say they didn't just look like short particularly stocky Vikings? :)

As for heights, the dwarves vary in height as they should -there is some overlap in dwarf and hobbit heights in that shortish dwarves and tallish hobbits tend to fall in the same height range. There is a chart where the characters heights are actually listed(I believe all the dwarf heights were ultimately adjusted upwards by about 4 inches but it gives an idea of scale), I remember Thorin was 4 ft 10, Kili was 4 ft 8, Fili was 4 ft 5, Balin was also I think 4 ft 5, Oin I think may have been 4 ft 8.5.

Now as it ended up Thorin ended up being around 5 ft 2, Kili about 5 ft, etc, etc.

ETA: Obviously I mean the movie dwarf heights. :)
