This dwarf was based on the cover illustration for White Dwarf 90, the 10th anniversary issue, by John Sibbick. It was originally a "one month only special edition" but was later available in the 1991 Catalog as Norse Dwarf with Axe 11.
The Phil Lewis painted version below does have a custom spike on his helmet, most don't!

June 1987 - WD90
No-one knows where he first came from. About a decade ago, he was sighted infrequently, perhaps once every two months, and his style was rough and uncultured. But his fame grew as people far and wide came to hear of him, and he was seen much more regularly, in far wider areas than before. These days he roams even further afield, both here and overseas, and while his style is now more civilized and subtle, he is nonetheless the same mighty warrior, in a class of his own!
The White Dwarf
The White Dwarf is immune to all psychological effects, but it is usually quite easy to bribe him. He is also illiterate, and prone to drunkeness, usually mid-day, but claims this is acceptable as he is an artist. Some say he is also subject to stupidity, but this is (as yet) an unsubstantiated rumour. His axe called Edyta, causes horrible damage to his enemies (especially to any opponents who enjoy Live Role Playing), but blunts quickly, and is often replaced.
