The orcs in the new vlog Can't Post

Does anyone else think those are the Gundabad orcs? There isn't loads of evidence for it but they can't be Mordor orcs one would think and Sauron probably doesn't have too many at DG. They obviously aren't Misty Mountain goblins. PJ seems like the type that would definitely use Gundabad in his movies as he loves his big and spectacular evil forces and environments. Plus it ties in well with the other references to "Gundabad wargs", "the giant Gundabad Orc" along with the original book. Thoughts?

their aromor... [In reply to] Can't Post

in two shots we get a good glimpse of their armour, and in my eyes they look very Morgul like. The Orcs themselves look somewhat different to Azogs hunters. due to their armour, I am assuming that the war will have a mordor/sauron connection, rather than a independent orc army. I can see clearly now, that these orcs will be led by Bolg instead of Azog. Bolg is related to the Dol guldur/sauron/mordor storyline, so it would be more just for him to lead them. even his look further emphasises this. I cant see Azog leading the bo5a. If he does Id like to see him all armoured up. when we look at the Azanulbizar flash back, Azogs army, are all pretty much his hunter/gundabad orcs. in this new vlog, I don't see many orcs dressed like them, so im assuming they are connected to the dol guldur story.
I believe this is just enough!Cool

"fingolfin looked up in grief to see what evil morgoth had done to maedhros"
