White hand of Saruman Can't Post

The orc at 1.28 seems to have the white hand painting on his face.

Do you think we will have a sub-plot showing Saruman treachery ?

NO...just...no [In reply to] Can't Post

Saruman was already portrayed as being far to suspicious in AUJ.

I don't think so [In reply to] Can't Post

It think it's more the scars on his face and the reflection of the sun at that particular angle ... at least according to this screen cap - link

Why does Azog, and this random Orc... [In reply to] Can't Post

Look like some deformed version of the N'avi from Avatar?

Gundabad Orcs? [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe PJ is trying to distinguish between the orcs from Gundabad and those from Mordor (from LoTR?) ... the problem comes with the dissimilar appearances between Bolg (more Mordor-like) and Azog Crazy

Think its war paint [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's war paint, It looks similar to the war paint of this Games-Workshop model, http://www.games-workshop.com/...;prodId=prod1830028a

I think he's meant to be in the next film, could just be another marketing causality caused by the trilogy split like how toys of Tauriel and Legolas were released early.

Yes, my username is terrible.

nope [In reply to] Can't Post

As said, it's just some war paint, these orcs are givien a bit of a tribal look in these movies.
