Speculations on Kili's bow and his weapons [In reply to] Can't Post

For those who are interested, I wrote a short essay on Kili's bow and his other weapons, including speculations on their form and function. References are drawn from The Hobbit: AUJ, tie-ins and supporting materials: http://thorinoakenshield.net/...adly-at-every-range/

As far as I can say, in his role as one of the scouts of Thorin Oakenshield's Company, it's not too far-fetched that Kili uses a bow as his primary weapon, even if the axe might be a dwarf's signature weapon.

But as we have seen in DOS now, they didn't even show us the bow Thorin gets later on - maybe in the Extended Edition, so archery doesn't seem to be a main focal point.

Cheers,
kingfisher
