Erebor dwarf weapon master
I suggest to Chris King Bladorthin inspecting the long spears he will order from the Dwarves of Erebor. As a companion to the king I propose a dwarf weapon master holding one of the spear standing beside him. He is dressed as just coming out of the forge.
Rúmil, Haldir's brother, was a border-guard of Lórien and guarded the border of the country to the west together with his brothers, Rúmil was present at the Fellowship of the Ring's first meeting with Lórien elves.
Dunharrow - Army of the Dead - Standard-(Banner)-bearer on foot
from The Lord of the Rings Book III - The Return of the King Chapter II: The passing of the grey company
...The company now mounted again, and Gimli returned to Legolas. They rode in file, and evening came on and a deep blue dusk; and still fear pursued them. Legolas turning to speak to Gimli looked back and the Dwarf saw before his face the glitter in the Elf's bright eyes. Behind them rode Elladan, last of the company, but not the last of those that took the downward road. 'The Dead are following,' said Legolas. 'I see shapes of Men and of horses, and pale banners like shreds of cloud; and spears like winter-thickets on a misty night. The Dead are following.' 'Yes the Dead ride behind. They have been summoned, ' said Elladan. ...
...To the stone of Erech the Company came and halted in the dead of night. Then Elrohir gave to Aragorn a silver horn, and he blew it; and it seemed to those that stood near that they heard a sound of answering horns, as if it was a echo in the deep caves far away. no other sound they heard, and yet they were aware of a great host gathered all about the hill on which they stood; and a chill wind like the breath of ghosts came down from the mountains. But Aragorn dismounted, and standing by the Stone he cried in a great voice: 'Oathbreakers, why have ye come?' And a voice was heard out of the night that answered him, as if from far away: 'To fulfil our oath and have peace.'
