    I'll say it again.

    Years ago I was an Elf fan.When I started getting into fantasy I definetely liked Elves more and disliked dwarves.

    After the LOTR movies Elves suddenly became a fashion because of Legolas.Every girl was crazy about Orlando Bloom!So you know...little by little elves became even more popular and I was getting tired of this.

    And I also found dwarves to be a very interesting and good race in fantasy stories and especially in Warhammer and Warcraft and I started liking them even more.

    Orlando Bloom ensured that the Elves were seen as very feminine creatures which made them not the most popular creatures in Tolkien's world I think lol.

    Elves are pretty effeminate in a lot of fantasy worlds.

    I know, it's just that I didn't expect them to be that feminine!

    And to imagine that in Silmarillion the Elves fought most of the epic and super-hard battles and actually in the Silmarillion the Elves are the main heroes.The humans arrived much later and did too little compared to the Elves of the First Age.

    When you read the Silmarillion you get a whole different picture of the Elves from the one given to most fantasy worlds where they are presented as these happy jolly magical sissy creatures who stay in their woods or some lost kingdoms.

    I seriously doubt it.They might as well put Legolas in the movie as well since his daddy was the king of the wood elves that captured Thorin and the other dwarves and Bilbo escaped only by wearing the One Ring.

    Good question! But i know that dwarf are a lot much fun to draw. And i think there is a little oversaturation of elves in fantasy story. So in the long run i think dwarves will survive a little longer in fantasy story telling.

    Harmy... remember:

    Of all the men of Azeroth I must say,
    That my least favorite race is the elf.
    I'd rather have lunch with a fat ogre,
    Than to spend one moment with an elf.
    I'd rather take a slime to a homey pub,
    Than to toast to an elf's health.
    They tall and purple and all too skinny,
    And of this you must be sure,
    That elves are the sickliest things around,
    And sadly there is no cure.

    Ooo…ooo…ooo…ooo!

    Stay away from those crooked elves!
    They look like women and smell like hell.
    So if you would take my sound advice,
    Keep a distance of at least ten feet
    .
    I'd rather go fishing with Onyxia,
    Than to go fishing with an elf.
    I'd rather go swimming with a dead murloc,
    Than boating with an ugly elf.
    Their voices are fem and they don't resemble men,
    They're bodies are void of hair,
    And so I'm sure you can understand,
    Why they give me such a scare.

    Ooo…ooo…ooo…ooo!

    Stay away from those crooked elves!

    So if you would take my sound advice,

    Despite my better judgment,
    I once went camping with an elf.
    He stole my s'mores and dented my pots,
    And made the campground smell.
    Of lavender and rose buds,
    Such nasty smells they be.
    And so I threw him into the lake,
    Then went and had some tea.
    Ha! Ha! Ha!

    Ooo…ooo…ooo…ooo!

    Dwarves for the win

    I actually think that elves and dwarves were created just because the other was made, I am thinking there will be a draw.

    I voted for the doughty Dwarves. I don't trust Elves - any species in which the male can't grow a beard is deeply suspect in my book (see also Orcs).:p

    I've seen Orcs with beards, but they don't really need them because they got super manly giant tusk-teeth lol
