Re [In reply to] Can't Post

It's natural to jump around and consider nods to Draugluin, or even Grond and Carcaroth. Wargs are certainly "of that nature", linked in heritage back to those original horror-wolves. And that links the Warg-Riders of Gundabad to Sauron, since he was a master of werewolves.

But I think it's far more specifically meant to evoke the White Wolves that invaded The Shire from Angmar during the Long Winter. The Warg Chief is a last vestige of that terrible breed, and it links Azog's Gundabad and Warg-Riders intrinsically to the Witch-king of Angmar (which is still a proxy for Sauron).
