We've heard the rumors, we've waited for it, and now finally it's here: our first glimpse Dain Ironfoot on his battle pig in [The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies](movie:512312)!!
Ever since the whisperings of a battle pig first began, I've been waiting patiently to see images. While we weren't fortunately enough to see Dain Ironfoot in the trailer, a generous http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/2nauhz/billy_connolly_as_dain_ironfoot_in_the_hobbit_the/Redditor has found this image for us to enjoy:
While Ironfoot did not have such an amazing mount in the book version of The Hobbit, he did lead an army of Dwarves, responding to Thorin's call for help in reclaiming the Lonely Mountain. Ironfoot's army was described in the book as dressed in heavy war armor, with iron boots, and are pictured in the image above, behind the battle pig, with their enormous spears.
With just over three weeks to go until the released date of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, I hope all the war mounts are prepped and ready! I, for one, can't wait until battle pig runs into battle goat and battle Elk!
Which is the ultimate war mount?
