Thror Can't Post

I don't suppose anybody has any kind of image of Thror in full armour/weaponry from the Battle of Azanulbizar. Only seen the film once and I can't remember much about Thror at all.

I don't but there might be screen caps online somewhere [In reply to] Can't Post

I keep getting mesmerized by that thing that goes over his beard in Erebor. I find that fascinating. I don't know what it's called. Is it to keep his beard out of his soup? It looks cool.

Thanks. [In reply to] Can't Post

Did he really have a blue shield and a golden streak through the middle of his sword?

To be honest I can't remember [In reply to] Can't Post

GW themselves seemed unsure: before his model came out he was described as wielding a two-handed axe, but their FAQ changed it to a one-handed sword. I thought that he had a double-handed axe myself, but then I remember Azog knocking a shield from his hand in the film so maybe I'm wrong. Possibly I got him mixed up with Thrain, who definitely has an axe/hammer/whatever else you want to call it.

By the way The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles shows him with an T-H axe/hammer in hand, so now I'm really confused.Laugh

Here's the pic of him from the aforementioned book, see bottom of the page:

Haha me too. [In reply to] Can't Post

To be honest I can't even remember him fighting. I just remember his head being held aloft.

I still want to know... [In reply to] Can't Post

If any part of Thrors beard was CGI. Every time I see him something still seems a little off to me.

Thror's weapon [In reply to] Can't Post

I made note to watch for this when I saw it last night for you, and yes Thror does indeed wield a sword at the battle of Azanulbizar. Hope it helps!

View 14, watched for Thror,,, [In reply to] Can't Post

I watched for it was well. Broadsword and shield, which he loses. Cannot make out any shield design.

Not sure if there's a Youtube of it. [In reply to] Can't Post

If there's a youtube video of that scene you may be able to freeze frame it and see. Or wait 3 weeks for the DVD to come out ;)
