Mustered in darkness and marched to the threshold of Erebor by secret ways, Azog the Defiler’s great host spills from the earth to lay siege to the mountain kingdom of the Dwarves and the city of Dale.

Bolstered by Trolls, Ogres and Goblin mercenaries, the main body of the army of Dol Guldur is composed of Orc soldiers. Tall, long-limbed, and broad-shouldered, these are no ordinary, bent-backed, stunted Orcs, but a more disciplined and dangerous breed, like Azog himself. 

Despite the pain a bright sky inflicts upon their pale, night eyes, the Orc soldiers of Dol Guldur fight on in daylight, driven by the promises of carnage, ruin, and feasts of man-flesh. Falling upon the defenders of the Mountain, their ordered ranks shatter into slavering mobs as the soldiers surrender to their bloodlust. They run through Dale’s streets and prowl the battlefield before the Gate of Erebor, roaring with savage delight at the destruction they bring, cruel blades gripped tightly in armoured fists and dripping with blood and gore.

The Dol Guldur Orc Soldier joins Weta Workshop's high-quality 1:6 scale Middle-earth line; a line that is designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies.

 

Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are designed by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth.

CREATING THE DOL GULDUR ORC SOLDIER

The Hobbit would be just as Orc-heavy as its predecessor; the creatures a seamless mix of visual effects and performers in prosthetics. Weta Workshop designed a series of Orcs to be digitally brought to life, and fabricated physical makeup appliances from foam latex. Working from a palette of blues, reds, purples, yellows, and greys, the Workshop paint team played with skin patterns, adding birthmarks and scars. Distilling this creativity into a collectible version: Jamie Beswarick, part of Weta Workshop’s original sculpting team on The Lord of the Rings.

Please note: this statue was designed and prototyped here in the Workshop. Images show a pre-production prototype. Each statue is painted by hand and slight variations will occur.
