*Now with Oin and Gimli's dad Gloin!
This is the what I have been waiting for!
I can't disagree with Gimili's design, but he was very much the "every-dwarf," in that he embodied much of what we preconceive a Middle Earth dwarf to look like; it was fine for Lord of the Rings , where he essentially was the only dwarf we ever saw save for the prologue and the council of Elrond, so the audience never had a reason to tell him apart from any other Dwarf.
This image (released on the flim's Facebook page) of the brothers, Ori, Nori, and Dori, is exactly what I was hoping for. Be it that there are 13 Dwarves rather than 1 to try and tell the difference between on the fly, this should give you an idea about how different each dwarf could be:

Here is the offiicial "bio" release:
DORI, NORI & ORI
These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.
Not only do sit here transfixed by Nori's awesome hair (what the hell do you even call that style), but I am also inspired with the best (worst) idea for my 2 brothers and I to get these guys' names tattooed on our lower backs.
We could call it a "Sauron Stamp"
*Yahoo released a photo of Gimli's kin too!
