Thorin, Thrain, Erebor, Dale etc.

Shelob'sAppetite writes: "Excellent bit of detail, which draws on descriptions in the Sil...

I am now quite convinced that these particular scenes are not from Azanulbizar, nor from BofA (as we have an armourless Thorin, with the very same dwarf sword he has before the trollshaws) but from a scene depicting a defensive act against Smaug's first attack on Erebor.

I also think that the reason we have been given such an extensively detailed and massive set of Dale, is that we will see a lot of action there in an extended flashback that includes Bard, etc. AND help from dwarven soldiers, who may enter Dale to help protect it from Smaug. That help from the dwarves might feed into why the people of Laketown revere Thorin and Company so much when they arrive...

Otherwise, I cannot see why PJ and company would have spent so much money, time and effort on such a massive set. We will be seeing lots of drama there, I think."

I agree Thorin is certainly younger here, so it can't be the BoFA. I would love this to be the battle of Az., but I don't think it is either. For it to be the coming of Smaug re-writes everything, but I don't see why pre-Smaug Dale would be given a set the size of Minas Tirith if they weren't going to do something like what you said.

The more I look at these shots below, the more I think that is Thrain next to Thorin (missing eye and all). Thrain is supposed to lose his eye in the battle of Azanulbizar, but whatever Crazy The second would be Thrain after the Necromancer gets a hold of him. Yick!

Compare to this:
