I finished my drawing of Bombur, as portrayed by the talented and funny Stephen Hunter, one of our beloved Kiwi-actors I love this scene in BOTFA. It’s one of the scenes that connects „The Hobbit“ trilogy with the „Lord Of The Rings“ trilogy. Here we have Bombur blowing the horn before the Thorin and his company break through the walls of Erebor and join the battle. There’s a similar scene in „The Two Towers“ when Gimli blows the horn in Helm’s Deep and Theoden and Aragorn ride together into battle, in one last attempt to fight the enemy back.
Both kings and their allies are outnumbered by the enemy and
both say similar things before they join battle:
Theoden: „Yes. Yes! The horn of Helm Hammerhand shall sound in the deep ONE LAST TIME! Let this be the hour when we draw swords together. Fell deeds awake. Now for wrath! Now for ruin! And a red dawn! Forth Eorlingas!“
Thorin: „Will you follow me, ONE LAST TIME?“
