The number of the armies of the Free Peoples probaby numbered at least 2000:
- Elves: 1000+ spearmen with at least several companies of archers (say a company = 20 Elves).
- Dwarves: 500+ warriors and Thorin's 13.
- Men: However many fighters remained after Smaug's attack; say 200 to 300.
- The Eagles were numerous; so dozens at least.

The Orcs and their alllies comprised a vast host that greatly outnumbered their opponents. Say at least 5000 and as many as 10,000, not even counting the bats.

So we are looking at a conflict at about the scale of Helm's Deep.
