I see your points [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, they can make pretty good guests...when they want to. They cleaned up Bilbo's place just peachy, but I suspect the elves were less than thrilled with them. Then again, I'm sure they were less than thrilled with the elves too, so maybe they were less respectful on purpose. (It was all that green food that did it.)

I don't know if I'd say they should never fight solo. I think it has to do with who they are fighting. I'm sure they are pretty awesome fighters in their own right, watching how they handle themselves and their weapons. Azog and his warg were much larger than Thorin physically. It didn't surprise me at all that he was bulldozed by something akin to a charging rhinoceros! Heck, I give him credit for even going for it. And Kili, like any of the dwarves and Bilbo, was challenging something the size of a small condominium, when he went to Bilbo's rescue. The goblins, for the most part, are more their size, so they could manage things better, even though they were hopelessly outnumbered. (well, they had Gandalf, and he counts for a small army by himself!)

But I will say, the dwarves are AWESOME when they are fighting together. I particularly like how Dwalin is the unofficial Dwarf Stepping Stone! (As in, letting his head be used by Nori, I think it was, to get up into the tree, and while fighting the trolls doing that roll and ending up on his hands and knees so Thorin could use his back and do the wack-a-Troll thing)
