Perhaps Dain did kill Azog at Azanulbizar in PJ's adaption

Perhaps Dain did kill Azog at Azanulbizar in PJ's adaption Can't Post

This is a description from Games Workshop's Azog miniature (their licence is with Warner Bros.; not the Tolkien Estate):

Azog™ was a mighty Orc chieftain and a defiler of the dead. He was slain long ago, at the hands of Dain Ironfoot, and never heard of again. Now, however, rumours tell of an Orc matching his description who rides a white Warg...

Noticed this as well... [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe there are 2 options
1. GW have just messed up their description and taken it from the book
2. In the EE we see Dain jumping in to help Thorin and getting a couple of blows on Azog while he's being taken into Moria. There is quite a gap in the flashback between Thorin taking Azog's hand off and Azog being taken inside Moria

I think however that the top one is more likely but I hope I'm proved wrong...

As much as I'd love to see option 2 [In reply to] Can't Post

I just can't see it. If it was confirmed for the EE it would immediately become my most anticipated scene however. I'm hoping for as many extensions to the Azanulbizar sequence as possible.

Misinformation [In reply to] Can't Post

Sure I seen the same piece of text in the rulebook when I saw it in a Games-workshop store which was before the release of the film, so I think Games-Workshop have just failed to update their description.

It seems they were pretty in the dark about Azog compared to the other details in the film.

Yes, my username is terrible.
