Still some miles away, on the far side of the Westfold Vale, lay a green coomb, a great bay in the mountains, out of which a gorge opened in the hills. Men of that land called it Helm’s Deep, after a hero of old wars who had made his refuge there. Ever steeper and narrower it wound inward from the north under the shadow of the Thrihyrne, till the crow-haunted cliffs rose like mighty towers on either side, shutting out the light.

So Casey and I have found our new favourite minor Tolkien character.

Meet The Overenthusiastic Rohirrim Dude

image

Just look at him

He’s so excited to be a part of this battle

He speeds up his horse and everything

(Also, if you caught the scene he’s in, he lets out a REALLY loud war cry which can be heard over all the other Rohirrim yelling)

I’m not sure but I think this is him as well:

(The weapon is different but no biggie.)

I appreciate you, mate

I really hope he survived :D

Today in Middle-Earth: (March 3rd, 3019 T.A.)

 The trumpets sounded. The horses reared and neighed. Spear clashed on shield. Then the king raised his hand, and with a rush like the sudden onset of a great wind the last host of Rohan rode thundering into the West.

Today in Middle-Earth: Gandalf comes to Edoras and heals Theoden. (March 2nd, 3019 T.A.)

  ‘Now Theoden son of Thengel, will you hearken to me?’ said Gandalf. ‘Do you ask for help?’ He lifted his staff and pointed to a high window. There the darkness seemed to clear, and through the opening could be seen, high and far, a patch of shining sky. ‘Not all is dark. Take courage, Lord of the Mark; for better help you will not find. No counsel have I to give to those that despair. Yet counsel I could give, and words I could speak to you. Will you hear them? They are not for all ears. I bid you come out before your doors and look abroad. Too long have you sat in shadows and trusted to twisted tales and crooked promptings.’ 

Forth, and fear no darkness! Arise! Arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day, a red day, ere the sun rises!

The most extravagant of all armor created for LOTR was that of Theoden King. Marvel at this craftsmanship by Weta Workshop.
