Some pics of the dwarves from The Hobbit film being released. Now to me these look like concept art but they have accreditation as "Photo by..." and names the actors involved so I am guessing that they are the real deal...
But anyway, these make for great character reference pics.
Edit - someone has shopped them all together here:
Now that I come to look at all of them I notice the weapon choice... Mace, No Weapon, Sword, Spear, Axe, Sword, Bow, Mace, Hammer, Glaive. An odd set I would say.

So bows are specifically mentioned in the book (although the dwarves are evidently not skilled with them). The only other weapons they had that I can recall were Thorin's sword Orcrist, which was taken from the trolls' cave, and the axe he used during the Battle of Five Armies (the sword having been stolen by Thranduil). The other dwarves' weapons are implied among the provisions but never specifically described, so they could be anything at all.Originally Posted by The Hobbit, Chapter 8

yep, been following this as well -also watched the two video diaries of Peter Jackson. Don't know how I feel about those slim dwarves - although why shouldn't there be? ... they're are done with shooting block 1 - and one of the facts that amazed me was they they have 254 shooting days for the two movies (Lord of the Rings had 255 for all three movies) ... I'm looking sooo much forward to this - especially since I'm reading the hobbit for my oldest (6) girl at the moment
@jax : *lol*
lolol! I head that hobbit leg is very nice, medium rare.
Any food that you have to shave isn't very good...unless yer a troll, of course.
