The promotional shots of the remaining Dwarves from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have been posted online.

Dwalin and Balin are brothers, and Lords in their own right. Balin is on the left and played by Ken Stott, Dwalin is played by Graham McTavish.

The last image is of Thorin, the leader of the Dwarf company, played by Richard Armitage. This has to be the most disappointing visualization of the lot. I’ve seen several comments online that this does not look like how people imagined Thorin to look, or that he even looks like a Dwarf.

I agree with several commentators who have suggested he would look better with forehead ridges and a Bat’leth in his hand. I agree, and go one step further, I think he’s the spitting image of Gowron.

Here are all the Dwarves, minus Thorin, together.
