    Middle earth dwarves are where it's at. I can't wait for the hobbit, since it's packed full of them. I couldn't stand the Dragon Age dwarves and I can't say that I really know the others. So Tolkien's didn't have much competition I suppose.

    I voted 'other', as my favourite dwarves in fantasy come from the Discworld. The dwarves of Middle Earth would be a very close second, though.:)

    I votes for Warhammer Dwarfs because I love their ornaments and the designs on their shields and clothes.I didn't choose Middle-Earth dwarves because I consider them the "fathers" of all high fantasy dwarven races and the stereotypes for most dwarven races.
    Warhammer dwarves are also among the bravest and strongest,they love beer and they are the natural enemies of Orcs and goblins in that fantasy world.

    Dwarves of middle-earth. Their cities are just too cool. I love their language as well. Khazad-dûm, Belegost, Nogorod, and my favourite, Azanulbizar.

    They also have a rich history, with almost every mountain range in LotR being inhabited by them at SOME point in time.

    Dwarves of Middle-Earth, though the Dwarves of Warhammer are pretty awesome, I don't play Warhammer, but I do LotR Strategy Battle Game.

    Middle earth dwarves especially the way they were described by Tolkien in Hobbit and in Silmarilion as the creations of Valar.

    Middle Earth. They set the stage for everything that came after.
    Second one would be Other: Artemis Fowl dwarves. Just for how very different they are.
