No massive siege engines and catapult thingies... [In reply to] Can't Post

Whatever you call those monstrosities that the orc armies used at Pelennor. That assault was long-planned by Sauron and he'd been massing forces and equipment for it presumably for quite a long time. The goblins' (or orcs') assault on Erebor was hastily arranged, wasn't it? And (presumably) not planned by a powerful Maia, but just by the goblins themselves. However, with the Necromancer subplot in TH: AUJ, I suppose it could be Sauron himself organizing the goblin/orc assault -- but surely he's not doing so with as much forethought, and certainly not as much power, as he had in LOTR. Surely PJ wouldn't change this so radically? With that said, I know I've read somewhere that PJ said the Bo5A will be the biggest battle we've seen yet -- bigger than the Battle of Pelennor Fields -- so it's supposed to be pretty spectacular!

Richard Armitage said in an interview that the dwarves emerging from Erebor in full armor to engage in the battle is the single most impressive scene in the trilogy (or words to that effect). Can't wait to see that! Even if what comes shortly thereafter is awfully hard to watch...
