... I agree with you! It definitely does make sense and I've come to a similar conclusion. However, I think they could look a bit more rough or at least not that dressed up to the nines, you know?
Then again, I think of the latest cover of Empire magazine: There you catch a glimpse of Gandalf which, I think, is rather unusual and differs from what we've seen of Gandalf before and after that (in images of The Hobbit's shooting). I believe that these promo shots probably convey pictures of these characters which are not that accurate or informative for that matter. You have to take into consideration that these promo shots are set up quite artificially (I know, the finished movie is also something that is artificial) and none of the actors will pose for the camera like that. These dwarves will be dirty and rough-looking and exhausted from their long trip. Let's not make a fuss about these pictures. I am sure, everything will look just fine, in the end...
