So this is meant to be a humorous poll to find out the average height of Dwarf players. Post here if you play Dwarf as your main army, or associate with them in general or would chose to be a dwarf in role playing.

I'm around 6'1" and have long blonde hair, not what you'd expect in your average Dwarf player :D

The poll lacks an option for non-dwarf players who just want to see the results.

Love it :D

I am 6'1". I don't play them because of their stature, just the grumpy nature and stubborness ;)

Why would someone lie about their height... on a poll on the internet?
....
never mind..



Next up: A poll about the average beardlenght of dwarf players ;)
Followed by: How pointy are elf players' ears?

I'm 6'5, but aside from being tall I do fit the *ahem* dwarfen physique, brought about mainly through a love of food and ale.

So make of that what you will.

To the OP - Dude, don't you know that everyone on the internet is 6'5"? :)

I'm 5'7", but my friends are always telling me how like a Dwarf I am they took the relentless rule and replaced the 'Dwarf' part of the entry with my name, since apparently I can walk for years without getting tired.

(Though my Dwarfness tends to be in my attitudes, I am very much not Dwarflike in appearance - no beard, no mountain fortress and no ludicrously over decorated weapons and armour)

I know a Dwarf player. He's about 175cm tall, which'd be something like 5'9. Sounds about right, considering the emerging average height. :p

I used to be a dwarf player. I was 5' 7".

Now I'm a goblin player...still 5' 7", but I lost some weight, and got a gillette mach 3.....

That would be a bit short as I just shaved most of it of, so about 1cm now.

Height would be 1.98m, so slightly above average.:shifty:

This whole discussion reminds me of a certain stereotype about people looking like their pet dogs... Perhaps this is applicable to warhammer armies as well?

If you want an example of a skaven player who looks very mousy, look at the picture at the top right corner of this "What's new today" (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/blogPost.jsp?aId=15000006a) post.

Wouldn't the best Dwarf player be one who dwarves his opponents?

I am 6'6" and weigh about 200 lbs. That being said I am actually fairly lean and not very Dwarfish! Although, I did have a full beard all summer, and my family (with myself included) all have a fondness for ale...

Granted we also all live in Alaska and also have a fondness for guns!

I used to play Dwarfs. Though I have a well-trimmed goatee now, I was clean shaven when I played. I still play Dwarfs in Warmachine.

Being the 4th, or maybe 5th, army that I've gotten into, I still have a rather meager collection of dwarves, pretty much none of which are painted. I can comfortably play 1000 point games (our old standard for gaming at the LGS in 6th/7th ed) I've taken a liking to them, though, and plan on expanding them to a more sizable army at some point.

Oh, and I'm 6'2", hardly a dwarf at all.

6'3" here i got into the army for the background and miniatures, the old metal longbeards are still some of my favorite models.

What you should really be asking, is the average height of a play whos main army is dwarves. In previous threads in the general discussion forum, some poeople have posted threads saying they have 3k of every army or 4k of 3 armies. So alot of people who play dwarves could be lanky europeans. I'm not bashing on your thred making skills just giving constructive criticism.

My beard doesn't seem to want to grow beyond a couple inches, still have it, but I don't think I'll achieve a true Dwarf beard. I expect I'll be dying my hair orange and taking the Slayer oath for that very reason someday soon...

A player at our local GW is quite short, with a bit of a belly, and has a beard, and he plays Dwarves... no word of a lie lol
So im a bit dissapointed that all these dwarf players above are so tall and slim... i had a beautifully warped and stereotyped idea of dwarf players untill this point! :D

6 foot tall and rather large, one has a beard, 1 has stubble

40 years old.
5'6"
long hair since 1985
dwarf paunch due to beer consumption
Have made a living swinging both axes and hammers, as well as smelting metal and working with cutting edge technologies.
Often scruffy-looking.


Not dour or stubborn and can't grow a beard more than a half-inch to save my life tho, always get sick of it itching and off it comes... ah well, can't be perfect I guess.

6'8" here. I don't play them at the moment, but I usually play them in WHRPG and associate with them a lot more than with elves.

Though I mostly resemble an orc and they are my favourites wherever they're available - but I enjoy fighting and killing them as well, so there's no problems there.

5'11" with a beard (although short as it gets itchy) but still a grumpy ale swigging axe wielding slighty chubby 'dwarf'

PS_ i'm a gardener so thats why i swing axes not for any psycotic reasons, better than chainsaws too :)

6'1" and 240 stocky build (not fat, but broad) and no facial hair.

Short hair due to the office environment I work in.

I do enjoy a good ale or lager. :)

5'8"
294 years old in dog years
always have a beard
slight belly due to good food
used to brew my own beer
used to work with hot metals being poured into castings
used to work in the high tech field of solar power
still swing axes and hammers and swords as I have been doing martial arts for 217 dog years as of this year.
used to be in the Military so I'm quite proficient in firearms

I'm sometimes grumpy. Sometimes very abrasive.
Other people see me as too serious most of the time
and I'm a perfectionist...well...most of the time.

Yup, I'd say I fit the dwarf stereotype quite well.

[QUOTE=musical;5247486]Post here if you play Dwarf as your main armyQUOTE]

Voted before I reread and saw this.

I play dwarfs but they certainly aren't my main army.

(I'm 5 11)
