Dwarven Armor Can't Post

I feel that each Dwarf would have armor suited to their particular style, whatever
that is. Like at Azanulbizar, I don't think the dwarves will have helms as they could
obscure their faces.
I was thinking they'd have different colored armor with different patterns and gem ornaments.
Thoughts?

Yeah I see what you mean [In reply to] Can't Post

Like Fili and Kili will need to be wearing armour that still allows them room to do all their acrobatic stuff whereas Thorin's will probably be more conventional.

Personally I don't really have a clue as to what the armour will look like but I'm sure WETA will do another fantastic job! Smile

Thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

for finding and posting these photos. I imagined more of a shiny display or armor.
Perhaps some metal breastplates with dazzling patterns of intricate metalwork.
Maybe some bronze color mixed with gold and some silver hehe. Maybe Thorin's will
be wicked awesome. Not to make the armor too ornamental suited more toward pageantry,
but i think it'd be cool to see them dig up some of the finest armor in middle-Earth. i'd imagine
it would be a pretty sight to behold them in their glittering glory as they prepare to attack the goblin.
oh well.

Thorinīs armour [In reply to] Can't Post

I noticed that in this one Thorin is wearing a diferent fur,and that ornamental golden piece of cloth that he is putting upon Tami, Iguess that this is what hewears when they regain the mountain when they change that Esgaroth clothes


http://richardarmitagecentral.co.uk/...3/01/tamilane_ra.jpg

But inChronicles one, there is a design ofThorinīs armourand its kindof blue, similar toThrainīs but blue and I guess with some raven designs on it, I will tryto find it

That is a concept design (not final) for Thorin's Azanulbizar armour. / [In reply to] Can't Post
