I been painting some Fantasy minis lately and at Salute I got some samples of the new Oprey/North Star plastic Dwarfs that will be seleased later this year. They are a part of a new range of fantasy miniatures that North Star Military Figures and Osprey Games will be releasing. The first box to be released are a plastic set of Dwarf Infantry, later there will be similar boxes for Elves and Goblins to. There are no official release dates yet of the Dwarfs or the othere minis that are planned.
Each sprue from the Dwarf set allows you to build 5 Dwarves armed with spears, hand weapons, or bows and you have 11 different head options. I like plastic minis as you can convert them easily, these Dwarfs I love for their "Viking" style, I built me 14 Dwarfs and made some minor conversions, also adding a Horn from the plastic GB VIkings.
Had some questions about the size of the Dwarfs and I would say they are about 23mm from foot to eye. Some size comparisson pictures below.

I was thinking of field the 14 Dwarfs as a 24 point Warband for Dragon Rampant like this:
Vildsvins klanen (Wild Boar Clan)
1 x Elite Foot with Missiles @ 8 points (Warlord and Banner holder in a reduced group)
2 x Elite Foot with Missiles @ 8 points (6 Dwarf Warriors in each group with a mix of weapons)
