Proud, grim-browed folk, the Dwarves marked every past slight or injustice visited upon them by the haughty Elves and arrived spoiling for a fight. Though stout, the soldiers of the Iron Hills were resolute and tireless fighters. Dwarf armour was thick and their shields broad. Beyond the axes and short swords that hung from their belts they carried long, pointed spears to extend their reach and impale charging foes.
Yet, in the face of a much greater evil, the resentment simmering between Elves and Dwarves was swiftly set aside, for the armies of Azog came suddenly upon them, erupting from the ground to make war upon the Mountain. Reforming their ranks, two hosts locked in enmity moments ago now fought as one: a force united by love of life and liberty, standing against the on-rushing tide of savage Orcs.
The latest the Weta 1:6 scale line, the Dwarf Soldiers of the Iron Hills are designed to accompany the Mirkwood Elf Soldier. Although available as standalone statues, it is recommended displaying them as one dynamic scene, straight out of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
